When Claudius invaded Britain in AD 43, one of the many things he wanted to do was set up a new school, along Livy's Laws. It was built just outside the Roman capital of Camulodunum, very close to where our Colchester Campus is now. Unfortunately, the school as well as the Laws themselves were lost when Queen of the Iceni, Boudica, burnt Camulodunum to the ground. Or so it was thought. Following a number of intercepted communications by the Department of Lost Historical Treasures, it is believed these Laws have not been destroyed and in fact have been returned to the very place where Emperor Claudius placed them nearly 2,000 years ago. Now we just need to find them.
Suitable for ages 6 - 11. For those accompanying the participants, the activity is not pram-friendly.

When & Where
University of Essex
Celebrating 50 years
In 1964, 122 students arrived at a new university built upon a bold vision. We were small, with big ambitions. Over five decades we have more than fulfilled our potential, becoming one of the UK’s leading academic institutions.
Today, we are a truly global community producing impactful research, with members who thrive on critical thinking, creativity and challenging established conventions to improve the world.
This year we’re celebrating our collective achievements, reflecting on our founding years and reminiscing about our evolution. We're exploring six research topics that offer an insight into the scope of the outstanding work our researchers undertake. TheSomething Fierce exhibition looks into how the architecture and the people shaped Essex’s unique living and learning environment.
Events and activities, including TEDx events, are taking place at our campuses and around the world, and we invite all our members, friends and community to join in. Celebrations began in September with a huge Homecoming Weekend.
