Summary. Observations were made during groundworks associated with the repair of the medieval building (formerly 'Bonds') at 14-15 North Hill, Colchester, Essex. Under the floorboards of the building, previous floor surfaces and the original medieval ground-level were exposed. Timber and brick foundations were revealed and there was evidence of the underpinning of wooden sole plates with peg-tile. A wall and a vaulted ceiling to a cellar dating to the late 17th or 18th century was exposed. The groundworks did not impact on any Roman remains.
