Between 26th to 30th June 2023, a team from Oxford Archaeology undertook an excavation at Land North of Stansted following a phase of trial trenching at the site. The excavation revealed two Early Neolithic pits along with a series of Iron Age boundary ditches and several discrete features. This report briefly summarises the excavation results, with a full post-excavation assessment and updated project design forthcoming, following the completion of all phases of archaeological mitigation work at the site.
