Roman Artefacts

We had a great time yesterday exploring lots of Roman artefacts.  We got to handle wax writing tablets  with stylus.   We looked at leather fragments of shoes.  We tried on a Roman sword belt and pictish bangle.

There were little oil lamps, cooking pots and containers.

A collection of Roman coins with heads of different emperors.

A mortaria which was a grinding bowl,  There were pieces of grit pressed into the bowl and this helped to grind corn or seeds.

Tara found it cool that Roman people wrote on bees wax tablets but found the smell weird.    Aimee liked this as well as she really wanted to feel what it was like.   Rana I liked the stylus because it looked like gold.
