Summary. During an archaeological evaluation at the extra-mural site of 38-40 Crouch Street in Colchester, a large Roman foundation was recorded at the southern end of the site. A medieval foundation and evidence for inhumations at the northern end, close to the street frontage, probably formed part of the house of Crouched Friars.
