An excavation in 2007 at Bellrope Meadow, Sampford Road, Thaxted revealed late Iron Age or early Roman enclosure ditches, and a cemetery comprising six cremation and five inhumation graves dating from the 1st to 3rd centuries AD. In addition, a ditch containing late-medieval to post-medieval building materials was discovered, suggesting that a building of this date existed in the vicinity of the site or a little way beyond.
