Chelmsford is a town of about 160 000 people and since 1218 the county seat of Essex in the East of England. It has been recognised as a market town since 1199. Yet long before that it was the Roman village Caesaromagus (Caesar’s market place) and, even earlier, a Bronze Age settlement near where we live. Chelmsford was also the centre of the 16th century witch hunts. More recently, Chelmsford
is recognised as the “Birthplace of Radio” as it was location of Guglielmo Marconi’s work
at the turn of the 20th century.
