Interim assessment report on Stage 2 archaeological excavations, Alienated Land Area S2 (south), Colchester Garrison, Colchester,Essex. February-March 2007
Brooks, H and Holloway, B; Masefield R
Following an evaluation, four sites 0.5 ha in total were opened on the sports pitch. Finds from Mesolithic, Neolithic and early Bronze Age suggested early activity. A round house of Late Bronze/ early Iron Age date appears to be replaced by Iron Age and Roman agricultural activity, This activity continued with medieval field boundaries. In the 18C there was a farm building, later replaced by a large enclosure, which went out of use in 19C.
