Fishbourne Roman Palace

Fishbourne Roman Palace is in the village of Fishbourne, Chichester in West Sussex. The large palace was built in the 1st century AD, around thirty years after the Roman conquest of Britain on the site of a Roman army supply base established at the Claudian invasion in 43 AD. It is the largest Roman palace Northwest of the Alps ever found so far. The purpose and builder of the palace is still unknown. About one third of it was unearthed. A large roof protects the mosaics from the weather.
