Colchester started life as a centre of the local Celtic tribe, the Trinovantes. It was a group of settlements and farmland surrounded by a network of ditches. The site was about 12 square miles or 20 square kilometres. The Romans invaded Britain in 43 AD and they built a fort in a piece of high ground in this centre about 44 AD. The fort was surrounded by a ditch and an earth rampart with a wooden palisade on top. The Romans left the fort about 49 AD. The Romans thought that the local tribes were now pacified and the area was safe. (They were wrong!). Still the old fort was taken over by civilians and turned into a town. It was settled by retired Roman soldiers. About 54 AD a stone temple was built to the Emperor Claudius (Roman emperors commonly claimed to be gods). Roman Colchester was called Camulodunum, from the name of the Celtic god of war Camulos and the Roman word dunum meaning fort.

In 60 AD Queen Boudica led a rebellion and she attacked Colchester. The defenders took refuge in the temple of Claudius but the rebels broke in. They killed the people and burned the temple. They also burned the rest of the town (an easy task as most of the buildings were made of wood). However after the rebellion was crushed the Romans rebuilt Colchester. Between about 65 and 100 a wall was built around the town. There was also a small fort at Gosbecks. Roman Colchester probably had a population of 10-12,000. That seems small to us but in those days England had a tiny population and settlements were much smaller than they are today. By Roman standards Colchester was a large and important town. It was also an important port because of its position near the sea.

Colchester is the earliest recorded town in England. It was first recorded in the year 77 AD. Inside Roman Colchester potters worked in clay. Other craftsmen worked in glass. Some made things of bone. There were also blacksmiths and bronze smiths. Tiles and bricks were also made in Roman Colchester. There were at least 8 temples in Colchester. By the 4th century there was a considerable Christian community in the town and Britain's earliest known Christian church was in Colchester. The Romans also built a theatre at Gosbecks. This would have been an open-air theatre in the shape of a semi-circle. In the 4th century Colchester, like other Roman towns declined. The last Roman soldiers left Britain in 407 AD and Roman civilisation slowly broke down as fierce Saxons from Germany invaded.
