A replica Roman mask worn by cavalry during reenactments held at the National Roman Legion Museum. Masks like this were worn by Roman cavalry during displays at places like the amphitheatre in Caerleon. During Saturnalia, Romans entertained themselves with dice and games, but also with events like gladiator fighting at the amphitheatre. This object was chosen and photographed by Somerton Primary School to complement their video about Saturnalia. This was part of the 2016 Kids in Museums Takeover Day at the National Roman Legion Museum, Caerleon.
