Historical Origin And Design Inspiration
Colchester Castle in Colchester, Essex is an example of a largely complete Norman castle, built in the same style as the White Tower of the Tower of London. In fact, Colchester Castle is half as big again as the White Tower. The castle is built on the foundations (or the podium) of the earlier Roman temple of Claudius (built in around AD 44) which the Normans assumed was solid ground.
The castle was ordered by William the Conqueror, designed by Siward, Bishop of Rochester. Building began between 1069 and 1076 under the supervision of Eudo Dapifer (who became the castle's steward on its completion). Building stopped in 1080 because of a threat of Viking invasion, but the castle was completed by around 1100.
