Most of the Roman villas found by archaeologists are in the south of England. The governor of Britain had a palace in London. Another palace was beside the sea, at Fishbourne (near Chichester in West Sussex). Some Roman homes were kept warm with an underfloor heating system called a 'hypocaust'. The floor was raised up by piles of tiles or stone pillars to allow warm air to circulate. What was a Roman family like? Men were in charge of the family in Roman Britain.

A Roman villa was a country house built for the upper class in the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire. Pliny the Elder (23-79AD) distinguished two kinds of villas: the villa urbana, a country seat that could easily be reached from Rome (or another city) for a night or two; and the villa rustica, the farmhouse estate permanently occupied by the servants who generally had charge of the estate. The villa rustica centered on the villa itself, perhaps only seasonally occupied.

The Roman occupation unquestionably had an effect on Britain, but it is easy to overstate how widespread the effect was. Although the form of life changed for some people, the essence of Britain Celtic society was altered very little. After that they fell into disuse or were taken over for other purposes. Trade Industry in various forms was encouraged by the Romans. In their bid for the veneer of civilization the elite of Britain imported Roman wine, jewellery, and pottery.

The Romans had not needed to build in Britain huge aqueducts like those in their other conquered provinces, and only Hadrian's . But there was another more advanced style of country life in Roman Britain – the Roman villa

The Romans had not needed to build in Britain huge aqueducts like those in their other conquered provinces, and only Hadrian's Wall was too large to be utterly destroyed by invaders from other lands. Most of the Roman towns and villas, and the way of life they had stood for, disappeared. But there was another more advanced style of country life in Roman Britain – the Roman villa. About 500 of these have been found all over the parts of Britain which the Romans occupied, though they were largely owned by Britons, not by Romans.
