Your school is cordially invited to visit this major Roman site at Dover and to take part in its special Roman Life Activity Workshops.

The Roman House at Dover

This was a mansio (hotel) built outside the Roman naval fort in AD 200 and is one of the best preserved Roman buildings in Britain giving ample evidence of the Romans' building skills and the Roman way of life. The remains of five rooms, with tile and flint walls up to 2 metres high, fine in situ wall paintings and elaborate under-floor central heating system (hypocaust) are viewed from gallery and basement levels. A section of the later Roman army fort wall and stone bastion can also be seen.
