Roman & Celtic Art


Both the Romans and the Celts had expert craftsmen who made many types of artefacts out of all sorts of materials. Some of these materials last a long time - metals such as gold, silver, iron and bronze, as well as stone, glass, pottery and bone.


Archaeologists have dug up thousands of objects made of these materials, which you can now see in museums. Most are everyday items like pots, tools, and coins, but some are amazing treasures, made with great skill.


On these pages you can learn lots more about the artefacts you saw or made in the workshop, plus a few others. You will see photos of real artefacts and learn what the object was made of, what it was used for, and other interesting facts. Just follow these links.
