Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation (four test-pits) was undertaken at 1 Meadow Lane, West Mersea, Colchester, Essex in advance of the modification and extension of the existing dwelling. The site is located in an area of known Roman settlement and adjacent to a known archaeological site of a possible Roman villa (MCC8835). One of the test-pits revealed Roman material. Three of the four test pits were devoid of any archaeological remains.
