Scratched into the surface of this Roman tile is graffiti insulting someone called Attius, calling him stupid, or possibly something altogether more vulgar. It was 3D laser scanned as part of a week-long event where Canterbury Roman Museum poet in residence, Dan Simpson, walks the Roman road from London to Canterbury. Along the way, Dan will be visiting museums and talking to experts about Roman life, tweeting thoughts and photos, and composing poetry.

The Roman tile is on display at Dartford Borough Museum.
