401 Fishbourne Roman Palace

No, this is only the site of the palace. I’ve been wanting to visit here ever since I heard of it. I have to admit I had no idea how big it was.

To visit the site is to be exposed to the artefacts and building skills of 2000 years ago, and to begin to appreciate why the Roman Empire dominated as it did. The skills of the people who built the palace, and laid the mosaics that decorated the floor. To see the central heating system – which I knew they did but to see it is amazing.

The palace was built very close to what was then the waters edge of the harbour. Speaking to the staff running palace, there is a big question as to why the palace was built at this location. Apparently, they had install wooden piles to hold up part of it.

It really was a fascinating end to a lovely week.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
