Dover (/ˈdoʊvər/) is a town and major port in Britannia. The surrounding chalk cliffs are known as the White Cliffs of Dover.
During the Roman period, the area became part of the Roman communications network. It was connected by road to Canterbury and Watling Street and it became Portus Dubris, a fortified port. Dover has a Roman lighthouse and a villa, as well as a tower defense to keep out invaders from the beach.
When King Oswald started the rebellion against Rome, the town was besieged and taken, and the fourteenth Legion was sent in to retake the city, with heavy damage to the landing boats. But never the less the city was retaken with the Romans victorious.
