Summary. An archaeological evaluation (four trial-trenches) was carried out at 31a Julien Court Road, Braintree, Essex, in advance of the construction of three new bungalows. The site lies east of the Roman road which ran from Chelmsford to Braintree, and west of the site of a tile-built Roman kiln. An Early Bronze Age stone hammer and a Bronze Age pit have also been found in the vicinity. Excavations at the site uncovered a pit or tree-throw, two gullies and a ditch. Only one of these features produced any finds, a gully, which was dated to the medieval or postmedieval periods.
