Summary. An archaeological strip, map and record excavation was carried out on land at Warren Lane, Stanway, Colchester, Essex during groundworks for a new agricultural building and protective structures for growing soft fruit. The site lies in an area of nationallysignificant prehistoric and Roman remains, on the edge of the Late Iron Age oppidum of Camulodunum, and to the west of the Late Iron Age and Roman site at Gosbecks and the Stanway Úlite burial site. The groundworks revealed an undatable pit, but has also allowed the alignment of one of the cropmark features to be read justed from that proposed during the evaluation, and for another feature to be reclassified as a probable elongated pit.
