Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological excavation was carried out on land east of Brook Road, Great Tey, Essex prior to the construction of fifteen new homes with associated garages, landscaping and a new access road. Excavations revealed five features: a Middle Bronze Age pit and a Bronze Age pit, a undated possible pit, an undated pit or treethrow and a treethrow, all of which lay in the northern part of the site. It was also determined that all of the features uncovered during evaluation at the site were natural in origin. The remains uncovered during this investigation may represent an extension of activity at Teybrook Farm to the south, where excavations have revealed deposits dating to the Bronze Age.
