Roman Curses - Perrott Hill

Roman Curses

Year 5 have been studying the Roman way of life in Latin with Dr L-C. As part of their work on the Roman Baths they have learnt all about defixiones (or curse tablets), which were often left in Roman bathhouses in an attempt to punish thieves who stole clothing and property from the baths. The children then had a go at creating their own defixiones using the formula found on curse tablets at Aqua Sulis (Bath, Somerset). Labor optime… but don’t try this as home!
