Domus Australia

History

Prior to the commencement of the renovation works, archaeologists undertook “sample digs” looking for historical remains on the Domus Australia site.  The remains of a 1st century BC house and pavement were discovered and these finds have been preserved so that they can be viewed by guests.

Once the works had commenced a section of the foundation of another very large 1st century building and sewers from the 2nd – 3rd century were also unearthed beneath the building.  Again we worked with our expert team to ensure that the finds were preserved and where possible are on display for guests.
