Summary. An archaeological evaluation (13 trial-trenches) was carried out on land to the east of Chappel Hill, Chappel, Essex in advance of a proposed new residential development. The site lies to the south of the historic settlement of Chappel. Little archaeological work has been carried out in the area, although the discovery of a Roman mosaic pavement at Viaduct Farm, to the north northeast of the site, during the 1970s evidences the existence of a Roman settlement in the area. Excavations revealed a Neolithic to Early Bronze Age pit or ditch terminus and a Roman pit.
