AS Publish New Book

AS work at Mill House Farm, Chadwell St Mary, Essex has been published by BAR Publishing as a new book.

AS conducted archaeological work at this site from 2009, culminating in a phased excavation carried out between 2012 and 2014. The site revealed a late Bronze Age settlement,incorporating a 'ring work' or Springfield-style enclosure,which is relatively rare type of site with a limited geographical distribution. It has been suggested that they are associated with high status activity and systems of exchange. It lies in close proximity to the similar enclosures at the well-known site at Mucking. Like Mucking, later activity at the site consisted of Anglo-Saxon settlement and domestic occupation.

The book is available now from: https://www.barpublishing.com/the-chadwell-st-mary-ringwork.html

A ‘Rare and Important’ Discovery Leads to Historic Building Upgrade

Last year, Archaeologists from our Bury St Edmunds office conducted a programme of historical building recording at 1-5 Park Street in Old Hatfield, Hertfordshire. The survey revealed a timber-framed 17th century core with multiple phases of subsequent augmentation and alteration. The most intrinsically interesting elements identified during the survey were two previously unrecorded domestic wall-paintings which were discovered on the upper floor. A small sample area of one of the paintings was exposed to reveal so-called grotesque ornamentation of the later 16th or early 17th century, depicting a classical caryatid with draperies, a winged lion and abstract scrollwork. The wall painting is a rare and important discovery, made more exceptional by its excellent state of preservation. Following the discovery of the wall-paintings and analysis of the surviving historic fabric, in cooperation with Historic England, the building was upgraded in status from Grade II to Grade II* and featured in Historic England’s ‘National Heritage List in 2020’. The paintings were subsequently covered over after recording and the neglected office building was converted into a residential development with four flats. Read more
