Siege of Colchester map

View Siege of Colchester 1648 in a larger map

Best viewed in a larger window, so click on the link above.

The map above shows the locations photographed for the previous article on the Siege of Colchester during the English Civil War. I've also added in the line of the town wall as it would have been in 1648 and the conjectural position of the Parliamentarian lines and some of their larger fortifications ...

The sources are the same as for the original article: the Colchester Archaeological Society leaflet and Defoe's 1772 diary.
