The abstract describing the content of the publication or report
This article details the archaeological evidence from Marks Warren Quarry, a 32ha (79 acre) site, which lies c. 21km to the north-east of central London and 4.8km north-west of Romford in Essex, in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. The area once formed part of the medieval manor of Marks Warren, the remains of which survive just to the west of the study area. \r\n\r\nNotable discoveries since 1976 include the complete circuit of a Bronze Age to early Iron Age enclosure or hillfort and an Early Roman multi-ditched enclosure with associated buildings. These have been recommended for protection as Scheduled Monuments (SM). Other features on the site are also listed monuments, including two post-medieval boundary markers and a Second World War gun emplacement.\r\n \r\nThe results of a rolling Monitor and Record operation have added new information, enabling consideration of the wider landscape within which the major monuments are set, and revealing a multi-period landscape that has been in almost continual use form the Mesolithic until the modern day. Of particular note is a new analysis of the pottery associated with the possible hillfort, which has now been identified as a regionally significant group spanning the late Bronze Age to early Iron Age transition.
