The History of Roman Britain has been told many times before, but never like this. The Roman invasion of the British Isles transformed Britain’s landscape, but what did it do to the people of Britain? Curse tablets could hold the key. Widely used in the Roman Empire, curse tablets were a way for ordinary citizens to communicate to the gods. The Britons adopted this practice and put their hopes and dreams down on lead and place them in springs or underground. Unearth after almost two millennia, the curse tablets show that the Romano-Britons had a unique religious culture found nowhere else in the Roman Empire.
