Colchester, (Camulodunum), is the perfect location for historical film sets & is Britain's first city & was the first capital city of Britain. Surrounded by ancient Roman history, the Roman Balkerne Gate, Roman circus, Roman theatre & Colchester Castle, it is surrounded with the history of Boadicea's rebellion uprising against the Romans, (the Celtic warrior leader of the Iceni tribe), where she successfully defeated the Roman 9th legion. A layer of burnt earth can be seen by archaeologists from the Boadicean rebellion period, where she burnt Colchester to the ground & famously slaughtered the Romans sheltering in the temple, which is now where the castle is. The Norman castle was built over the Roman temple of Claudius & was a dummy run for the Tower of London.
East Anglia in Essex, is famous for it's history of witches & Matthew Hopkins, the Witch Finder General, responsible for the execution for over 100 alleged witches during the English civil war, some of whom were imprisoned in the Colchester Castle before their trial.
