Roman Curse Tablets

In our Crime and Punishment learning adventure, we discovered that in the Roman times (43 to 410 AD) there was no police force.

Unfortunately, if the victim was unable to catch the criminal themselves and bring them to court, there was little hope of justice. Therefore, the victims often turned to the Roman gods for help instead by writing curse tablets.

Year 6 made our very own curse tablets, written in the style of the Romans. We altered our names to sound authentic and researched which Roman god to call upon.
