Like several Roman sites (see, for example, Bignor Roman Villa), Fishbourne Roman Palace was discovered by accident. In 1960 a farmer was digging a water main trench when he uncovered remains of Roman mosaics. On-going investigation over the course of the next nine years revealed that the Fishbourne remains were one of the most extensive in Britain and contained some of the finest mosaics in the country.
