Summary. Archaeological monitoring and recording was carried out at 101 Laindon Road, Essex during the construction of two new dwellings. Evaluation on the site in August 2016 had revealed a Roman ditch, two pits and a pit/posthole, showing that the Late Iron Age and Roman settlement identified underneath the adjacent school in the 1970s did continue to the southwest into the development site. One Late Iron Age/early Roman pit and two Roman pits were recorded during monitoring.
