Roman Mosaic



One of the exhibits at the British Museum was this show of early Christian remains from the Roman Empire found in Hinton St Mary Dorset

Close up of the Fresco, Could not say if the last three were from Hinton St Mary but I thought they were amazing.

  5. I don't know how anyone makes mosaics. I think they would take ages... I'm just not patient enough!

  6. That mosaic is amazing and I enjoyed reading about it. It was discovered quite recently too. The next time I visit London, I'm going to dedicate more time to the British Museum. I think one could spend weeks there and still not see it all.
