In the 1C AD, the Romans built the settlement of Durnovaria on the great London-Exeter route. Today, Dorchester has fine 17C houses, with many façades modified in the 19C, thus making for a varied appearance. This spirit of diversity is also in evidence on the modern and controversial Poundbury estate, which continues to grow on the town's outskirts.
