Summary. The property lies 30m beyond the site of Colchester's East Gate. No early ground features were revealed by works for two new houses. The site frontage had been subject to extensive post-medieval to modern ground disturbance. Unstratified human skull fragments were recovered from terracing at the rear and a structural record was made of a complex of freshly-exposed post-medieval brickwork at the side of 5 East Hill.
