There was also a newly refitted Roman Frontier Gallery to explore, and there were a plethora of interesting Roman finds from Carlisle on show. Here's a taster:
This is an elegant way of showing how the hair pins of bone and jet would be worn by a Roman woman, and also shows the glass beads she may have worn
Here's a selection of Roman glass beads, including three examples of melon beads
Roman bronze brooches which would have held up a Roman woman's dress (stola), as well as being decorative, and having a chain joining them (for further bling effect!)
An antler/bone comb. The Romans didn't have hair brushes, just using combs instead.
A steelyard, along with its lead weight, used for weighing out food and other commodities
A side-on view of the Roman ceramic roof tile system. The flat tile, with edges turned up is called a tegula, and the curved tile is called an imbrex.
