Roman letter tablets

On Thursday, we made our own Roman writing tablets, similar to the ones found at Vindolanda.  We used two pieces of card and shaped them as the originals were.  Then, we wrote upon them using a stylus (toothpick) and black paint. We found it tricky to write but managed to get some good letters written complaining about our lives as a soldier.
