Four years ago I was much taken by the roman mosaics in Aldborough – it is well worth a visit. Isurium Brigantum was a Roman fort and town that has left us with several mosaic treasures including some housed at Leeds museum. That interest led to the post about mosaicing as a hobby and this is a link back to that content.
It seems the Yorkshire sculpture park has caught up with the current interest in the subject. There is a current and colourful display in the lower field. Before, after or during a snack children can colour-in or create there own version of mosaicart at the learning center.
This was just an excuse to rehash old interests but as the Romans would say ‘If you have an ear for them it is time to face the mosaic’.
What did the Romans ever do for us except bring mosaic virus with their tomatoes.
