Between the 30th of October and the 1st of December 2017, Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) conducted a programme of Archaeological Monitoring and Recording during water pipe replacement works by Anglian Water at the site of Maldon Road Roundabout, Colchester (TL 9921 2489). Two pipe trenches, measuring 0.5m wide and 70m and 40m long, were monitored to the south and northwest of the roundabout. Additionally, two connection point pits, measuring 3.3m x 3.3m, were monitored within the north-western part of the roundabout itself. Despite the location of the works being within an area of high archaeological interest, no archaeological features of any kind were observed during the monitoring. This is due to the high volume of made ground deposits that had resulted from the construction of the road and roundabout. Consequently, any archaeological features or horizons that were present would have been eradicated by the building works.
