Facts about Essex
· Way back in the day, Colchester used to be the capital of Britain. When the Romans invaded in AD 43, they set up Colchester (then called Camulodunum) as the capital. However, the town was attacked and destroyed during Boudica’s rebellion in AD 61, so it wasn’t the capital for long. There are old Roman walls in the city that date back nearly 2,000 years.
· Harwich has a thrilling maritime legacy that recalls legendary privateers like Sir Francis Drake and Martin Frobisher. The Mayflower was launched from Harwich in 1620, and its captain, Christopher Jones was born in the town.
· Waltham Abbey is also the resting place of King Harold, killed in the Battle of Hastings in 1066.
· St Andrews in Greenstead is believed to be the oldest wooden church in the world dating all the way back to 1081. That means the church is nearly 1000 years old.
