Did you know that 97% of the Museum’s collection is not on display? While 30,000 objects do currently grace our exhibition halls, they are just the tip of a very large iceberg cloistered away here on Bloor and Queens Park.
Ancient Rome & Greece Weekend is over, and I thought I would show you the results of my attempt to create a recreation, re-enactment, or impression of a soldier from Dura-Europos (so this is not really one of the original IV, so to speak, hence it is V of IV). In the group above you can see me on the left, with members of the University of Toronto's Hart House Archery Club, who collectively constitute the ROM's 3rd century Roman army (or ROMan army - it being the ROM, we are posing in front of a dinosaur).
