The site (SFT96) is located at the Stratford Freight Terminal in the London Borough of Newham. It lies within the floodplain of the River Lea at a height of between 4.22m and 6.78m OD, and covers an area centred on TQ 5382 1847. No previous archaeological or antiquarian explorations or findings have been recorded within the limits of the site, so that the principal indicator of its potential is a series of 30 trial pits excavated for geotechnical purposes by Foundation & Exploration Services Ltd. The Museum of London Archaeological Service (MoLAS) was commissioned by the latter to provide an archaeological assessment of the results, and the pits were accordingly monitored.
