2020 Great Britain Lighthouse Stamp

On 18 June 2020 Great Britain’s Royal Post issued a set of 8 stamps commemorating “Roman Britain”. One of the second class postage stamps features Dubris Pharos, otherwise known as the Roman Lighthouse located at Dover. This inactive lighthouse dates from the early 1st century A.D. and is the tallest standing Roman building in the U.K. This lighthouse has been previously honored on British stamps as shown below.
