Significance of the results:

Summary. Archaeological monitoring and recording was carried out at 31 Lexden Road in advance of the construction of a part two-storey, part single-storey rear extension. The development site is located within the Late Iron Age oppidum of Camulodunum, to the west of the Roman walled town, within an area of Late Iron Age and Roman cemeteries and close to the Iron Age and early Roman settlement and industrial complex at Sheepen. Excavations uncovered a single Roman linear feature, possibly a ditch, and post-medieval or modern remains of structures previously standing at this site.
