Significance of the results:

Summary. Archaeological monitoring was due to be carried out at 16 All Saints Avenue, Colchester during groundworks for the a new extension. As the foundation trenching was carried out before and archaeologist was able to attend the site, only a pit and service run for a new soakaway were observed. The development site lies to the southeast of the Heath Farm Dyke Middle, part of a series of defensive earthworks which defined the extent of the Late Iron Age oppidum of Camulodunum. Despite being located in an archaeologically-sensitive area, however, no archaeological remains or material were observed.
