Between July and November 2002, Oxford Archaeology carried out the second phase of archaeological watching brief within the disused MOD rifle range on Aveley Marsh. The work was commissioned by The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds during the ongoing development of the marsh as a nature reserve. The work involved monitoring of additional topsoil stripping and the excavation of new and existing drainage ditches. The deposits revealed consisted wholly of Late Holocene estuarine silty-clay alluvium. Excavations did not expose peat or organic deposits, and no significant archaeological remains were identified during the ditching works
