Significance of the results:

Summary. Archaeological monitoring was carried out at 50 Roman Road, Colchester, Essex during groundworks for a single-storey rear extension. A sherd of 2nd- to 3rd-century Roman pottery, and several sherds of Late Iron Age or early Roman pottery were recovered from a Roman accumulation layer which is possibly equivalent to a Roman dump layer previously recorded during groundworks at 23 Castle Road, to the rear of the site.
