Summary. An archaeological excavation was carried out on land opposite St Margaretís Church, Maldon Road, Woodham Mortimer, Essex, in advance of the construction of a new crematorium.

Archaeological evaluation on the site earlier in the year had revealed a possible Late Bronze Age pit in the eastern end Trench 17, and during current works a small excavation area was targetted over this pit. Two additional pits were identified.

Although no further pottery was recovered, the proximity suggest that they could be contemporary. This is further indication of some small-scale pre-historic activity.
