2 The Angel Court excavation site as it was in the late medieval and post-medieval periods (from ESAH 27, fig 9). 3 Bastion 2 in Priory Street is one of a series of external towers added to the town wall to strengthen its south-eastern corner (Philip J Wise). 4 The Red Lion Hotel dates to 1515. It is probably the most significant surviving timber-framed building in Colchester (Colchester Museums). 5 The Marquis of Granby on North Hill, built in the 1520s, has a surviving rear door with carved spandrels (Colchester Museums).
This excavation was continued in 1917 by Mortimer Wheeler, who became addicted to archaeology during his posting to the wartime garrison. Wheeler returned in 1920 to excavate a series of large town houses in Castle Park. The same period saw an important contribution to the study of Colchester’s historic buildings and monuments in the form of a survey undertaken by the Royal Commission (RCHME 1922). This volume included accounts of the dykes and Roman remains, along with a note on every building identified as being pre-1700 in date.
The moot hall, constructed around 1160, was demolished in 1843 to make way for a new town hall, but, miraculously, a number of 13th-century structures survived until the 20th century. Six stone houses have been recorded inside the town walls and it seems likely that these buildings (now mostly demolished) were originally occupied by the town’s Jewish population. None of the houses appear to have dated from after the expulsion of the Jews from England in 1290 and it is likely that the stone construction provided extra security for the occupants in these dangerous times.
