Roman artefacts

08 Oct 2020

We have spent some time this week exploring primary sources of evidence in the form of Roman artefacts. We were lucky to be able to borrow them from the Yorvik museum, and they really helped bring the Romans to life. 

We looked at a range of artefacts, including: coins, pottery, jewellery, toys, tools and clothing. We discussed how objects found in archaeology can often be studied in minute and microscopic detail to learn more about the past. Lots can be learned about life in the past through everyday items, and these are the items we focused on the most.

We had a number of trays like this to look at. 

 There were even animal bones and teeth! 

These are Roman soldiers' sandals. The soldiers had to pay for their own studs to go on the soles to give them more grip. 





We then spent some time sketching some of the artefacts.

The toilet brush was a very popular artefact!
