Summary. Archaeological monitoring and recording were carried out at Crumps Farm, Stortford Road, Little Canfield, Essex in advance of groundworks for the on-going formation of a major waste-management facility. The groundworks consisted of topsoil-stripping in advance of the construction of an eastern screening landform and a new bund. The development site lies near to the sites of a number of excavations around Little Canfield which have produced evidence of occupation and activity from the Palaeolithic to the post-medieval periods, and within a complex of cropmarks of medieval or post-medieval date. A single ditch of medieval to post-medieval/modern date was observed during this project.
