Significance of the results:

Summary. Archaeological monitoring was carried out at 3 The Chantry, Colchester, Essex during groundworks for a new extension. The site is located adjacent to the Late Iron Age/early Roman scheduled monument of Sheepen Farm and close to a number of Roman kilns and burials. The investigation uncovered four large Roman pits, possibly quarry pits for sand and gravel extraction. This adds to our understanding of life outside of the Roman walled town.
