Fishbourne Roman Palace and Gardens


Fishbourne was discovered by accident during the digging of a water main trench in 1960. The discovery led to nine seasons of excavations showing the site had developed from a military base at the time of the Roman invasion in AD43 to a sumptuous palace by the end of the first century.

The remains of one wing of the largest domestic Roman building yet found in Britain can be seen inside a cover building, with many impressive mosaic floors, underfloor heating systems, corridors and courtyards.
