Project type: Archaeological evaluation by trial-trenching
Significance of the results: neg
An archaeological evaluation by trial-trenching was carried out on a development site in the garden of Warren Farm at Little Canfield in Essex. The site is adjacent to the multi-period archaeological site of Priors Green, the line of the Roman road from Braughing to Colchester, and a moated site; Warren Farm itself is a 17th-century listed building.
One trial-trench was excavated and four archaeological layers were
recorded, primarily modern topsoil over an older, post-medieval topsoil, and then the natural clay. The older topsoil produced peg-tile, a fragment of modern pottery and a residual, prehistoric worked flint. The trench cut a modern drain. No significant archaeological remains or deposits were observed.
