Welcome to our “Special Visitors’ Corner”

a special place for visitors to our website who want a little bit more


This could be for you if you want to learn in more depth about archaeological investigations in Colchester and the surrounding area or if you would like to support the work of the Colchester Archaeological Trust. It’s free. All you have to do is register using the form below to get your own username and password and in no time at all you will be able to visit the Special Corner as often and for as long as you want.

You can go further and join the Friends of the Colchester Archaeological Trust (FCAT). It’s easy, it’s inexpensive, and we’d love you to become part of the organisation. You can find how to do it by visiting the FCAT website.

If you are not a Friend of CAT or don’t want to join, no problem.  (But please note that access to the corner doesn’t come with membership of the Friends. You will need to go the Friends of CAT website for that.)

Registration is free. Everybody is of course welcome. Everybody registers, members of FCAT or not. All we ask is that we can occasionally email you with details of events at the Roman Circus Centre or other events elsewhere that the Archaeological Trust is involved in. We will of course safeguard your email address and we will not share it with any other party including even FCAT!
