Roman Town House

Monday, July 26th, 2010
The Romans arrived on our little island in c. AD43.  Since their departure we have slowly and surely been discovering insight into the way they used to live.
A great example of Romano-British urban life is the Roman Town House in Collition Park, Dorchester, Dorset.  Built in c. AD307 it is the only Roman Townhouse visible in Britain and is the best preserved in the country.
