Fishbourne Roman Palace
My first impressions of Fishbourne when we visited on Tuesday 26th February was that it was going to be boring as it didn’t look like a Roman Palace.
The Palace had been discovered in 1960. It had been owned by a Celtic King called Togidubnis and had been burnt down in a fire.
In the North wing I saw the famous mosaic ‘Cupid riding a Dolphin’ which was only missing little bits of the corners.
In the workshop I enjoyed solving a Roman puzzle. The puzzle was hard because there wasn’t any picture. My favourite part of the day was making an arched bridge with Imogen.
