By 21/04/2023News

Dougie Killock will be giving a talk to COLAS this evening, April 21st at 7pm, about our excavation of a site in Aldgate, where we found archaeology dating from the Roman period, when the site was located close to the main road to Colchester, through to the late 19th century. The excavation recorded extensive evidence of gravel quarrying dating to the Roman and medieval periods. The finds recovered included high status imported ceramics and artefacts associated local manufacturing notably glass-making, sugar production and bell founding.
