Summary. Three archaeological evaluation trenches were excavated at the former Hamilton Motors site, Main Road, Boreham, Essex (TL 756 102). One trench was excavated at the south end of the site, and two trenches were excavated close together at the north end of the site near to Main Road. Of the small number of features revealed, all were either of modern date or of probable modern date. Apart from one small struck flint flake of possible prehistoric date, all the finds which were recovered from the features or from the spoil from the trenches were modern. The trenches which were dug close to Main Road revealed evidence of considerable modern disturbance at the north end of the site.
