Summary. Archaeological monitoring was carried out at 28 Gainsborough Road, Colchester, Essex, during groundworks for a single-storey extension to the rear of the property. It is located close to a site known as the Prettygate Junction, where a number of dykes which defined the Late Iron Age oppidum of Camulodunum converge. The groundworks revealed a large modern feature likely associated with a nearby Second World War tank trap.
