An Essex Archaeological Roundup

Speaker: Maria Medlycott

Tickets: £5

Location: Essex Record Office, Wharf Road, Chelmsford, CM2 6YT

Essex is a county rich in archaeological remains, however whilst some are easily visible within the landscape, such as moats and castles, the majority are hidden below the topsoil and are only revealed by excavation, usually in advance of development.  This talk is going to look at a number of notable projects that have recently taken place within the county and discuss how these sites are discovered and what they have revealed about the development of the Essex landscape over time. 

The studies will include the excavation of a Late Iron Age village at Cressing that may have been levelled by the Romans in the aftermath of the Boudiccan revolt, a Roman salt-making and fish-processing site in Thurrock, the emergence of a hidden landscape within Hatfield Forest and multi-period site in Harlow which contains evidence of human occupation from the Neolithic to the medieval period.
