A message from our Chairman:

Events have overtaken us, and it is now obvious that the AGM is postponed. We will be back in touch in good time before the new date of 5 September.

Fishbourne Roman Palace is a subsidiary of Sussex Archaeological Society, which receives no public funding to help with the upkeep of its various sites. Our Constitution provides for the Friends to raise funds specifically to help the Palace purchase equipment or fund activities which would otherwise be beyond its budget. Friends also give their time to help on site, either regularly or at special events such as children's activities.

On our Projects page you can see some of the ways we have been able to help. Even if you cannot take part in Palace activities your membership subscription or donation provides valuable support.

The website of the Roman Palace itself can be found at
