EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a remarkable piece of history, the Roman gaming board J970223, discovered in CORBRIDGE ROMAN TOWN, Northumberland. This archaeological gem offers us a glimpse into the leisurely activities enjoyed by ancient Romans during the reign of Hadrian. The intricate design of this gaming board is truly awe-inspiring. The perfectly carved squares and delicate markings reveal the meticulous craftsmanship that went into its creation. Resting upon it are dice and counters, remnants of long-forgotten games played by individuals seeking respite from their daily routines. As we admire this recreation from Historic England's Photo Library, we can't help but be transported back in time to an era where entertainment took on a different form. It reminds us that even amidst conquests and grand architectural endeavors, Romans found solace in simpler pleasures like playing games with friends or family. Beyond its aesthetic appeal lies a deeper significance - this artefact represents our connection to those who came before us. It serves as a tangible link between past and present generations, reminding us that despite the passage of centuries, human nature remains constant; our desire for leisure and amusement transcends time. Let this image spark curiosity within you as you contemplate how these ancient games were played – what strategies were employed? What stories unfolded around this very board? And let it also serve as a reminder to cherish moments of leisure in our own lives – for just like those Romans who once gathered around such boards, we too seek joy and relaxation amidst life's demands. In preserving treasures like the Roman gaming board J970223 through archaeology and photography, Historic England allows us to appreciate not only their historical value but also their ability to inspire wonderment about our shared human experience across millennia.
