During 6th-15th of December 2017, 15th-26th of January 2018 and 29th May – 1st June 2018 Oxford Archaeology East carried out a trial trench evaluation on land at Malyon’s Farm, Hullbridge, Essex.
A total of forty-seven 50m trenches were excavated across seven fields to the north and south of Malyon’s Farm. An area of Early Iron Age activity consisting of 69 pits, 11 postholes and 13 ditches or gullies was identified in the fields north of the farm on a ridge of high ground.
A smaller area of activity was identified in a field south-west of the farm. This included 14 ditches and gullies, and 15 pits. A small cremation was also located in this area.
A small assemblage of poorly preserved Early Iron Age pottery and fired clay was recovered along with a small assemblage of Romano-British pottery and tile.
After demolition works in the farmyard a further 6 trenches were excavated between 5-6th November 2018. One Medieval ditch was recorded.
