Make a Roman tile with a scary face on it, an antefixa, out of clay. You can add warts, fangs or horns, whatever you think will keep the ghosts and goblins away!

And while you’re in the Museum, can you catch the ‘Spookémons’ living in the Museum using our special IPad app?

Antefixa were put on the edges of roofs to scare away evil spirits and offer protection to the house, very much like gargoyles. You find lots of different things on antefixa, not just faces, such as sun symbols or dolphins.
