Summary. Groundworks for a small residential development at Lexden Grange were monitored by the Colchester Archaeological Trust. Part of a Late Iron Age pedestal urn is likely to be the remains of a disturbed cremation burial. Other pits found and Roman pottery from spoil heaps may also be burial-related. A crucible and possible metalworking debris point to metal-working on the site in the Roman period.
