Abstract

49 trenches totaling 2322.36 sqm were opened over an area of 42.13ha at Severalls Hospital, Colchester. Seven small pits filled with a significant charcoal content were identified and though without any finds they are comparable with other pits found in previous works from which a date of the Late Iron Age to Early Roman periods has been determined. A charcoal sample from the current project has been submitted for radiocarbon dating. With these possible exceptions, the only archaeological features present were either a part of the nineteenth century agricultural landscape, or the twentieth century workings associated with the construction and use of Severalls Hospital.
