This DVD presents archaeological data from Lofts Farm Project recorded by volunteer Maldon Archaeological Group members and helpers between 1978 and 2000.
Essentially it is a record of observation and selective archaeological excavation during the commercial gravel quarrying of a 110 acre site near Maldon in Essex. We are indebted to the gravel company Contractors Aggregates and farmers Mr. Hughes, Mr. Rees and Mr. Goodwin for permissions and assistance in carrying out the work.
Discoveries on this multi-period site include Neolithic ditches and pits, Bronze Age barrows and burials, Late Bronze Age Early Iron Age enclosures and huts, numerous Middle and Late Iron Age round houses, enclosures and trackway, Roman trackways, field systems and enclosures and a medieval moated site.
