Excavations at The Essex County Hospital

‘Excavations at The Essex County Hospital’ – a talk by  Adam Wightman, Colchester Archaeological Trust.
Friday 24th Nov 2023 at Navigator Hall, Barrack Lane, Harwich. CO12 3NP.

An archaeological evaluation (one trial-trench) was carried out at the Essex County Hospital, Colchester, in advance of the redevelopment of the site. The hospital is located on the site of a known Roman cemetery where excavations in 1820-1 produced the Colchester sphinx sculpture from an elaborate tomb. Roman kilns are also recorded on the site.
