Summary. A fieldwalking evaluation was conducted over an approximately 4.5 hectare area of land at the Flakt Woods site, off Tufnell Way, Colchester, Essex. Prehistoric, Roman and post-medieval/modern finds were collected. The only archaeological material occurring at significant weights was Roman brick and tile. There were lower weights of burnt flint (prehistoric) and post-medieval pottery. The Roman tile may be associated with Roman tile kilns 500m to the south-east of the fieldwalking survey area.
