Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation by test-pitting (twelve test-pits) was undertaken at The Rampart, Haynes Green Road, Layer Marney, Essex in advance of the construction of a temporary rural workers’ dwelling, covered horse yard and stables, fodder store and foaling stable, and exercise manège. The site is located in the historic Haynes Green, and close to a prehistoric rampart and a number of cropmarks. Despite being located in an area of archaeological importance, however, no significant archaeological remains were uncovered.
