Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation (one trial-trench) was carried out to the rear of Oldhouse, Church Lane, Stanway, Colchester, Essex in advance of the construction a cattery. Despite being located within the oppidum of Camulodunum and close to cropmarks showing internal details of the oppidum (trackways, fields, etc) there were no significant archaeological remains. A cropmark ditch which should have crossed the site was not seen. Its absence is best explained by prior truncation of the site.
