Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation (one trial-trench) was carried out on land to the rear of 1-3 Gate Street, Maldon, Essex, in advance of the construction of a new dwelling. Maldon’s Anglo-Saxon burh ditch was projected to cross the site, but no trace of this was present within the evaluation trench. The evaluation did, however, reveal a prehistoric ditch that may relate to the earlier settlement of Maldon, and an undated post-hole.
