Saturday. C. is of great antiquity. It
was the
Camalodunum of the Romans ; the Colneceaster
of the Saxons; and a favourite stronghold of the Danes.
The Roman'walls remain almost entire, and Roman
remains, including villas, with tesselated pavements,
hypocausts, and baths, Samian pottery, and coins, have
been found in the greatest profusion. The castle (12th
century) is the largest Norman keep in England. C. is
the centre of a large agricultural district, and has ex-
tensive corn and cattle markets. Corn, malt, and
oysters are exported from its port and suburb, Hythe,
15 miles from the sea. (For shipping statistics, see
Appendix.) The oyster fishery, however, is not so ex-
tensive as it once was. The baize mfr. has also declined,
and is superseded by silk, more especially the kind em-
ployed for umbrellas. Among the minor industrial
establishments are flour-mills, engineering works, rope-
yards, and lime-kilns. C. returns 1 member to Pari.
