ROMAN VILLAS AT COLCHESTER AND DARENTH AND THE RECULVER PILLARS AT CANTERBURY

ROMAN VILLAS AT COLCHESTER AND DARENTH AND THE RECULVER PILLARS AT CANTERBURY

At Colchester is a very fine pavement (bottom) It is situated in Castle Park close to a portion of the city wall for which the Romans were also responsible. Between Dartford and Farningharn in Kent is Darenth, where a Roman villa was discovered in 1894-95. The Romans found the climate of Britain chilly, arid here (top left and top right) we see the Roman system of central heating, the hypocaust with furnace (left) and the tile supports of the floor. At Canterbury are two pillars from Reculver, said to be Roman, and certainly built in the Roman style.
