Location: Colchester Borough

Project type: Watching brief
Significance of the results:

Summary. A watching brief on a site in Insula 2 of the Roman town confirmed the results of an earlier evaluation, ie that significant archaeological horizons (in this case, of Roman date) were deeply buried below post-medieval and modern deposits. The Roman deposits probably derive from the demolition of Roman buildings on the site. A post-medieval brick footing was probably the foundation of a Victorian brick-built house on the Northgate Street frontage.
