Keywords: ?Late Bronze Age, pottery, worked flints
Three trial-trenches were excavated by the Colchester Archaeological Trust prior to the construction of five properties and a garage (in three blocks) on land between 3 and 5 Hamilton Road.
One undated linear feature was identified during the evaluation and nine worked flints and two sherds of prehistoric pottery were recovered from the subsoil. It is probable that these finds are associated with the prehistoric occupation (most likely Late Bronze Age) identified across the Priors Green development to the north of the site.
