Significance of the results:

Summary. Archaeological monitoring was carried out at 159 Maldon Road, Colchester, Essex, during groundworks for an extension. The site is located in an area of known archaeological remains, south of the Roman road from Colchester to Gosbecks and in close proximity to the sites of a number of Roman burials. Monitoring revealed the partial remains of two straight-sided Roman features, one of which contained a flanged bowl and folded beaker. Although no human remains were recovered, it is highly likely that both features are graves of the Roman period.
