Sabine Enslaved

Sabine forced into slavery at Colchester Castle.

 

Colchester Castle is the largest Norman keep in Europe and, now home to the Colchester Castle Museum, contains more than 2,000 years of history, from the Romans to modern times.

 

The castle was built between 1076 and 1125 on the site of the Roman Temple of Claudius, which itself was constructed more than 1,000 years earlier.

 

Built to establish Norman control over the area by Eudo de Rie, a steward of William the Conqueror, it served that purpose for centuries.

 

The museum dates back to 1860 and occupies the entire interior of the keep, with exhibits over several floors and the chance to climb to the roof with a view over the surrounding town and parkland.
