The next available download in our exciting new Drawing on Heritage series of mindfulness colouring sheets is this beautiful Roman Mosaic. Watch our talented in-house creatives work on the design below:

 

Dating to about 350AD, this mosaic was discovered at the former County Hospital site in Dorchester in Dorset by Wessex Archaeology during excavations in 2000-2001. The high degree of finish to the floor is very unusual in the region, suggesting the owner of the house was a man of substance.

On the 21st July 2001 - National Archaeology Day - five thousand people queued to see the mosaic before it was lifted for future conservation. The mosaics were carefully lifted so that they can one day be put on display.
