Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation (extended trial-trench) was carried out on land at Petersfield, The Endway, Great Easton, Essex in advance of the construction of a replacement dwelling and garage. The development site is located 30m west of a 2011 excavation interpreted as the southeastern side of a Late Iron Age Roman enclosure, probably surrounding a rural farmstead, with an external track or droveway. This evaluation revealed Late Iron Age and Roman pits, postholes and a ditch all probably associated with the occupation of the farmstead. A post-Roman ditch might be related to the medieval motte and bailey castle, medieval farmstead and/or the 15th-16th century Easton Hall all located 70-90m to the west/southwest.
