Significance of the results:

Summary. An excavation was carried out on land south of Station Road, Wrabness, Essex in advance of the construction of a residential development. An 11th century ditch observed during the evaluation was further investigated and was determined to terminate a short distance to the northeast, and to have cut an earlier (but otherwise undatable) posthole. Two sherds of Roman pottery were also recovered from the ditch, evidencing some degree of activity on the site during this earlier period.
