Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation (six trial-trenches) was undertaken on land east of Brook Road, Great Tey, Essex in advance of the construction of fifteen dwellings with associated garages, landscaping, services, access road and associated groundworks. Twenty-three features nine pits, nine ditches, a gully, a pit/ditch terminus, two tree throws and a natural feature were uncovered. Due to the scarcity of finds across the site only one feature could be dated definitely. It is highly likely, however, that the majority if not all of the deposits date to the Bronze Age.
