Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation was undertaken in advance of the construction of ten new dwellings at Winnocks Almshouses, Military Road, Colchester. The buildings due to be demolished date from 1934 and are located immediately to the west of a row of six Grade 1 listed almshouses built in 1678 (NHLE no. 1123565). One trench revealed no significant archaeological horizons. The other contained a Roman pit and small section of possible metalled surface representing activity outside the south-east corner of the Roman walled town.
