In January 2008 ASC Ltd conducted an archaeological evaluation at Middle Mill Road, Colchester, in advance of the construction of seven new houses, to be located on the site of the former Council depot. Two trenches were excavated within the footprint of the proposed development area. The stratigraphy of the trenches consisted of the existing concrete hard standing and associated construction layers, overlying up to 1.55m of alluvial deposit. The natural geology consisted of dark orange sandy gravel. Five sub-circular features were observed in Trench 1. However, due to flooding only two were accessible for excavation. Both appeared to be shallow pits containing ceramic building material, probably Roman in date. <1>
