One of the most important
Roman villas discovered in Britain was
unearthed in this West Sussex village in the
1960's and has now become a tourist attraction
in its own right.
Fishbourne Royal Palace has 100 rooms and was occupied during the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD.
It may have been home to the Celtic chieftain Cogidubnus, a viceroy of the Romans.
Parts of the walls, bath and heating system can be seen as well as an elaborate mosaic floor, one huge panel displays a winged boy riding a dolphin.
