Summary. An archaeological evaluation (five trial-trenches) was carried out on land to the rear of Springwood, Rectory Road, Latchingdon, Essex in advance of a new residential development. Located on the southern edge of the historic village, previous archaeological investigation to the north produced evidence of medieval pitting and ditches likely on the edge of a small settlement. Features encountered during the evaluation consisted of seven undated tree throws, one ditch, and two pits containing brick and small amounts of medieval and post-medieval pottery
