Roman Theatre

Details

The remains of the Roman theatre in the town centre can best be seen in Maidenburgh Street in the Dutch Quarter: look for the darker paving in the road showing the outline of the theatre's walls. The theatre mentioned in Tacitus' account of the Boudican attack on Colchester was probably on the same site as the later theatre excavated in Maidenburgh Street in 1981-2.
