Edible Archaeology

As Red Nose Day approaches and some of us will be baking cakes to raise funds, I thought I would give you some inspiration 🙂 When our head of archaeology retired last September we had two cakes at the party.

The first one was a detail from the dinning room mosaic at Chedworth Roman Villa, complete with red flue tiles in the wall!

The second one was an excavation, with great details including stratigraphy showing different soils and layers, a dumpy level to take hight measurements, tool box and someone digging 🙂
