Summary. An archaeological watching brief (monitoring and recording) was carried out at 14 Acland Avenue, Colchester, Essex in advance of the construction of a two-storey rear extension. Despite being located close to the sites of a number of Roman cemeteries, no significant archaeological horizons were identified, although a number of residual Roman pottery sherds from the subsoil (L2) do indicate Roman activity in the area.
