Colchester is Britain's oldest recorded town and was one of the most important Roman outposts. It has the largest Roman Circus after the Circus Maximus in Rome. This was discovered only in 2005. We have a special visit including a talk by the Principal of the Colchester Archaeological Trust. In the afternoon we will go to Colchester Castle Museum to see its Roman history. This has been completely renewed with over £4M recently spent in refurbishment and it is now fabulous. The full itinerary is below. It will be a great day out.
