The Roman Painted House, the finest Roman House on show in Britain, was discovered by Kent Archaelogical Rescue Unit. Twenty-five years of excavation across ancient Dover by the Unit have uncovered 50 major structures. The Painted House was the best preserved and is now a major tourist attraction. Built about A. D. 200 it formed part of a large mansio or official hotel, for travellers crossing the Channel.

It stood outside the great naval fort of the Classis Britannica, but in A. D. 270 it was demolished by the Roman army during the construction of a larger fort.
