  • Belgic oppidum (Roman Braintree)
  • Caesaromagus (Roman Chelmsford). A Roman fort was built in AD 60, and a civilian town grew up around it. The town was given the name of Caesaromagus (the market place of Caesar), although the reason for it being given the great honour of bearing the Imperial prefix is now unclear – possibly as a failed 'planned town' provincial capital to replace Londinium or Camulodunum.
  • Camulodunum (Roman Colchester). Oldest Roman wall in Britain, best-preserved Roman gateway in Britain, remains of two Roman theatres, oldest Roman church in UK and Castle museum
  • Great Dunmow
