Summary. This site lies inside the oppidum of Camulodunum, and on the southern fringe of the Abbey Field Roman cemetery. Two parallel ditches were observed, one Roman and a second which was undated but probably Roman. They are interpreted as being the west and east ditches of a north-south-aligned Roman trackway.
