Summary. An archaeological evaluation (consisting of five trial-trenches) was carried out at 91 King Harold Road, Colchester, Essex in advance of the construction of five detached bungalows with associated garages. Situated within the Late Iron Age oppidum of Camulodunum, Heath Farm Dyke is projected to run along the south-eastern edge of the development site. Archaeological evaluation at this site uncovered four probably modern tree-throw holes, an undated ditch, and two natural linear features. No trace of Heath Farm Dyke was found, suggesting that the dyke is actually located either to the north-west or south-east of its projected route.
