Essex County Council Archaeological Department (now Essex County Council Historic Environment Branch) launched the Essex Historical Towns Survey in 1995, as part of the national EUS programme instigated and funded by English Heritage. The project comprised a survey of all the smaller towns in Essex, including the area that is now the Thurrock Unitary Authority. The intention was to provide high quality information about the archaeological potential of towns for archaeologists and local planning authorities. Between 1995 and 1999 thirty-two towns were surveyed in Essex. Colchester was subject to a separate survey, undertaken by Colchester Museum.
