Significance of the results:
An archaeological evaluation (consisting of one ‘T-shaped’ trial-trench) was carried out at Joyce Frankland Academy, Newport, Essex in advance of the construction of a new school building. The trench contained a large amount of modern disturbance, as well as a modern service. Also uncovered was a modern ditch, aligned north/south and visible on earlier OS mapping as part of an enclosure around a series of allotments.
Two residual finds, a sherd of 12th-14th century pottery and a prehistoric worked flint, were recovered from the topsoil.
