Summary. Archaeological monitoring at Little Olivers, Olivers Lane, Stanway was carried out during groundworks for the construction of a new cartlodge. Little Olivers house is a Grade II listed building dating back to the 16th-17th century. The development site is also close to the significant Late Iron Age and Roman complex at Gosbecks, and is within range for the potential continuation of Kidmanís Dyke South and Gosbecks Dyke South. One modern rubbish pit was identified, but no archaeological deposits were found during monitoring.
