Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation (one trial-trench) was carried out at Wemadit, 58 Chitts Hill, Colchester, Essex in advance of the construction of a new chalet bungalow. The site lies within the Late Iron Age oppidum of Camulodunum, south of a Bronze Age cemetery, and in the midst of numerous cropmark complexes indicating the presence of further extensive prehistoric remains. A ditch and a pit were uncovered but neither yielded any dating evidence, and so their relationship to other archaeological deposits in the area is unclear.
