Summary. An archaeological evaluation (twelve trial-trenches) was carried out on land east of Newbarn Road, Great Tey, Essex in advance of the construction of thirty new dwellings with associated groundworks. The development site lies to the north of a Roman villa and to the northwest of sites of Bronze Age activity on land east of Brook Road and at Teybrook Farm. Forty features eleven ditches, ten pits, fourteen postholes, a possible quarry pit, a gully, a gully or natural feature, a natural feature and a tree-throw were excavated. The majority of datable features had their origins in the Bronze Age, including a series of postholes indicating the presence of at least one structure on the site during this period. Some evidence of Roman and medieval activity was also uncovered.
