Colchester claims to be Britain's Oldest Recorded Town. The Romans called it Camulodunum. Boudicca (Boadicea AD60 or 61) the Queen of the Iceni defeated the Romans here and burnt the temple dedicated to Claudius the Roman Emperor. The Normans built this Castle on top of the remains of the temple between 1069 and 1076. The Castle contains an excellent award winning Museum which is great for kids.
