Summary. Colchester Archaeological Trust (CAT) were called to observe the excavated footings for an extension to 33 St Johnís Green in Colchester, Essex, on the afternoon of Friday the 16th of February 2010 (Fig 1). The area of the proposed extension and much of the remaining garden area had been stripped of topsoil (L1). Most of the topsoil had been mucked away in lorries, having been periodically scanned with a metal detector by an enthusiast living nearby. The discovery of a Roman coin and a Charles II ?farthing was reported to CAT. These finds were to be reported to the finds liaison officer by the gentlemen in question. The site had been stripped down to the light yellow/orange natural sand (L2).
