Summary. Archaeological monitoring and recording was carried out at 7 St Clare Road, Colchester during the construction of two-storey rear extensions and general façade enhancements. The development site is located within the Late Iron Age oppidum of Camulodunum, to the west of the Roman walled town and near to the Lexden tumulus and an area of Late Iron Age and Roman cemeteries termed the ‘Lexden cemetery’, as well as a number of other sites of Iron Age and Roman activity and occupation. The excavation uncovered four pits, one of which was dated to the Late Iron Age / Roman period, a small modern pit/posthole, and two indeterminate features, one of which was modern.
