Summary. An archaeological excavation (on three excavation areas) was carried out on Phase 1 land at Fiveways Fruit Farm, Dyer's Lane, Stanway, Essex during pre-application investigative work. The site is located to the west of the Late Iron Age and Roman Colchester dykes and Gosbecks site, and only 800m north-west of the nationally important Stanway Úlite burial site. It is also located 560m to the north-west of two Middle Iron Age enclosures excavated at the Fruit Farm in 2015. Ten irregularly-shaped and undated tree-throw holes (F5-F14) were excavated during the current phase of work. Two features (F1 and F3) from the evaluation were re-excavated, and probably also represent tree-throw holes.
