Some interesting facts about Colchester, Essex

Colchester is said to be the oldest recorded town in Britain on the grounds that it was mentioned by Pliny the Elder, who died in AD 79. Before the Roman conquest of Britain it was already a centre of power for Cunobelin - known to Shakespeare as Cymbeline - king of the Catuvellauni (c.5 BC - AD 40), who minted coins there. Its Celtic name, Camulodunon, variously represented as CA, CAM, CAMV, CAMVL and CAMVLODVNO on the coins of Cunobelinus, means 'the fortress of [the war god] Camulos'.

Soon after the Roman conquest of Britain in AD 43, a Roman legionary fortress was established. Later, when the Roman frontier moved outwards and the twentieth legion had moved to the west (c.AD 49), Camulodunum became a colonia named in a second-century inscription as Colonia Victricensis. This contained a large and elaborate Temple to the Divine Claudius.

Camulodunum was the province of the Roman capital of Britain, but was attacked and destroyed in 61 AD Boudica revolt Sometimes, after the destruction, London became the capital of the province of Britannia. Colchester walls c. 3000 YD. built along c.65-80 AD when the Roman city was rebuilt after the revolt Boudicca. In 2004, the Colchester Archaeological Trust discovered the remains of the Roman Circus (chariot race track) to the garrison in Colchester, a unique find in Britain.

There is evidence of hasty reorganization of defenses near Colchester AD 268-82, and later, during the fourth century, by blocking the door Balkerne. Dr. John Morris (1913 - June 1977) British historian who specialized in the study of institutions of the Roman Empire and the history of Sub-Roman Britain, suggested in his book "The Age of Arthur" (1973 ) that the descendants of the Romanized Britons looked back at a golden age of peace and prosperity in Rome with the name "Camelot" of Arthurian legend is probably a reference to Camulodunum, the capital of Britannia era Roman.

Archaeologist Sir Mortimer Wheeler was the first to propose that the lack of early Anglo-Saxon finds in a triangle between London, Colchester and St Albans could indicate a "triangle of sub-Roman", where British rule continued after the arrival of Anglo-Saxons. Since then, excavations have revealed an early Saxon occupation, including a log cabin built from the fifth century on the ruins of a Roman house during the day Lion Walk. Archaeological excavations have shown that public buildings were abandoned and it is very doubtful whether Colchester survived as a settlement of all urban properties after the sixth century.

Chronology of his recovery is not clear. But the ninth century Historia Brittonum, attributed to Nennius mentioned the town, he called Cair Coluna, a list of the thirty largest cities in Britain. Colchester have been allocated in the Danelaw area of ​​c.880, and remained in the hands of the Danes until 917, when it was besieged and taken by the army of Edward the Elder, in the tenth century, the Saxons called City Colneceastre correspond directly to CAIR Coluna of "Nennius". The tower of Holy Trinity Church is late Saxon work.

Colchester Middle Ages, the main landmark is Colchester Castle, which is 11 century Norman keep, built on top of the vault of an ancient Roman temple. It should be noted medieval ruins in Colchester, including the port alive Benedictine Abbey of St. John the Baptist (known locally as "the Abbey of San Giovanni"), and the ruins of the Augustinian priory of St. Botolph (known locally as "St. Botolph's Priory"). Many of the churches from this period Colchester.

In 1189, Colchester has received its first royal charter by King Richard I (Richard the Lionheart.) The letter was granted at Dover with King about to embark on one of his many trips to England. The city celebrates the 800th anniversary of its charter in 1989.

Colchester is growing rapidly in the fourteenth century later, as a center of woolen cloth industry, and became famous in many parts of Europe for its scorching (fabric of a gray-brown). This nation has achieved extraordinarily fast against the effects of the plague, especially through immigration in the city.

"New constitution" of 1372 a borough council has been introduced, the two bailiffs representing the municipality for the king was now expected to consult with sixteen members of the council and eight Accountants (later called the sheriffs). Although Colchester fortunes were more mixed in the fifteenth century it was even more prominence in the sixteenth century than it was in thirteenth place. In 1334, he would not have ranked among the richest in Britain fifty cities, judging by the tax year in question. In 1524, however, it ranked twelfth, as measured by scoring a lay subsidy program.

Between 1550 and 1600, and many of the weavers of Flanders clothmakers moved to Colchester and the surrounding area. They were famous for the production of seats and says the fabric. Colchester Regional Centre is still known as the Dutch Quarter and many buildings there date of the Tudor period. During this period Colchester was one of the richest cities in England. The old Roman wall runs Northgate Street, Dutch Quarter.
