Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation by test-pitting (two test-pits) was undertaken at 8 St Albans Road, Colchester, Essex during the demolition of a rear single-storey extension and the construction of a wrap-around extension and associated groundworks. The work was undertaken as a remedial measure as groundworks previously carried out at the site were not monitored by archaeologists. A modern posthole or pit, an undatable cut feature, and a possible pit were uncovered. A number of finds dating to the prehistoric, Roman, post-medieval and modern periods, were retrieved.
