We are a small enthusiastic community group based in the historic Village of Writtle in Essex,. There are some 30 members, from a wide range of disciplines, all of whom have an interest in archaeology and local history.
Heritage Writtle was formed in 2004, as a result of finding some Roman remains and road within 800 yards of the Village centre, which are being excavated and to date we have a cottage villa/workshop. Ongoing work is revealing a network of tracks / roads.
A combination of metal detecting, geophysics, dowsing and excavating indicate occupation from the Bronze Age through to the present day.
