Archaeological monitoring at 116 The Commons, Colchester, Essex, CO3 4NP: August 2018
by Dr Elliott Hicks
(with contributions from Chris Lister, Sarah Carter )

Date report completed: August 2018
Location: 116 The Commons, Colchester, Essex, CO3 4NP

Project type: Monitoring
Significance of the results:

Summary. Archaeological monitoring was carried out at 116 The Commons during groundworks for a ground-floor extension to the side. Monitoring was carried out at this site due to its proximity to the Prettygate Dyke, which is projected to run through the southeastern part of the site. No trace of the dyke was encountered but the considerable thickness of the topsoil and subsoil deposits may be related to the site’s proximity to it.
