Discovered in 1970 and excavated during the next 22 years, the Roman Painted House in Dover was built around 200AD and is believed to be a Mansio - a Roman hotel located on a main road for travellers to get refreshment and a room for the night.

With 400 square feet of original painted walls and a well preserved Hypocaust (a Roman central heating system), the site is the most extensive example of this type of building ever found north of the Alps, and a must-see attraction for anyone with an interest in Roman Britain.
