Summary. The site lies at the eastern end of Colchester's High Street, within a relatively unexplored region of the Roman and medieval walled town. During a small-scale archaeological evaluation on the proposed site of foundations for a lift, part of a Roman tessellated pavement was recorded at a depth of 1.1m. Post-Roman levels in the area had been extensively disturbed by modern service-trenches.
