Colchester Archaeological Trust Ltd

Colchester Archaeological Trust's primary aim is to research and promote the archaeology of Colchester.

The Trust employs a professional unit, which provides developers with a full range of archaeological services. The trust has built considerable in-house experience of complex stratified urban archaeology and associated finds research. The discovery of the Roman fortress in the 1970s and of Britain’s only Roman circus in 2004 are among the many highlights of almost 50 years of fieldwork.
