Three days before the kalends of December

We started to-day by establishing some guidelines for the project.

Presentation day: Tuesday 13 December (a fortnight from to-day)

Questions to guide your work and research:

  • Is your model made well?
  • Is your model historically accurate?
  • Can you tell your viewers what you included in your module and why?
  • Can you use your model to talk about the Ancient Roman army?
  • Can you explain how your portion of the model connects the rest?

We spent the rest of class building our models.

The Arval Brethren were one of eldest of the many priestly colleges of the religion of the Ancient Roman state, tending to the cult of dea Dia, a nature-goddess, and of the ancestors so as to ensure a good harvest. During the reign of the emperor Augustus, the college was used as a tool of imperial unity and control. The term ‘arval’ comes from ‘arvum’, which means ‘a ploughed field’, and reflects their agricultural origin.
