Summary. An archaeological evaluation by two trial-trenches revealed an absence of archaeological deposits or finds associated with the Roman road which extended north from Great Dunmow towards Thaxted (HER 1185). However, medieval and post-medieval pottery sherds and CBM fragments from both trenches indicate that activity associated with the roadside settlement on North Street during these periods extended a considerable distance east back from the street frontage.
