The Roman invasion of AD 43 began with a landing on the south coast, probably in the Richborough area of Kent. After some initial successes against the Britons, they paused to await reinforcements, and the arrival of the Emperor Claudius. The combined army then proceeded to the capital of the Catevellauni-Trinovantes at Colchester in Essex, and took it with relative ease.
Claudius held a review of his invasion force on Lexden Heath where the army formally proclaimed him Imperator. The invasion force that assembled before him included four legions, mounted auxiliaries and an elephant corps, in total, a force of around 30,000 men. At Colchester in Essex, the kings of eleven British tribes surrendered to the Roman Emperor.
Colchester in Essex became a Roman Colonia, with the official name Colonia Claudia Victricensis, which translates as the City of the Claudius Victory. It was initially the most important city in Roman Britain and in it they established a temple to the God Emperor Claudius. This was the largest building of its kind in Roman Britain.
The establishment of the Colonia is thought to have involved extensive appropriation of land from the Essex people, this and other grievances led to the Trinovantes joining their northern neighbours, the Iceni, in the Boudiccan revolt. The rebels entered the city, and after a Roman last stand at the temple of Claudius, methodically destroyed it, massacring many thousands. A significant Roman force attempting to relieve Colchester was destroyed in a pitched battle, known as the Massacre of the Ninth Legion.
The rebels then proceeded to sack London and St Albans, with Tacitus estimating that 70-80,000 people killed in the destruction of the three cities. Boudicca was defeated in battle, somewhere in the west midlands, and the Romans are likely to have ravaged the lands of the rebel tribes, so Essex will have suffered a great deal.
Despite this, the Trinovantes identity persisted. Roman provinces were divided into civitas for local government purposes, with a civitas for the Trinovantes strongly implied by Ptolemy. The late Roman period, and the period shortly after, was the setting for the King Cole legends based around Colchester.
