Fri, 28 Oct 2016 08:00:00 +0000Each year a team of undergraduate interns works with the Antiquities Museum to develop a small exhibition alongside their studies. The 2016 Interns have worked to produce an exhibition highlighting the different types of gifts given in the Roman festive season, the Saturnalia. Objects from the Museum collection are paired with short epigrams describing them, drawn from the 1st century Roman poet, Martial. Martial lists over 200 suitable gifts, alongside short verses intended as ancient gift tags to accompany them. The Romans loved to give and receive these small gifts, much the same as we do today. Visitors to the exhibition opening will receive canapes and drinks on arrival as part of their ticket price. The 2016 interns will give a presentation on the topic of Roman gift giving from 6:30pm. A Small Rattle If some little crying homeborn slave clings to your neck, let him shake this noisy rattle with his tender hand. Martial, Epigrams, 14.54
