A team of archaeologists has unearthed in London a wooden splint that has been identified as the oldest handwritten document in Britain, dated January 8, 57, as reported by the Archaeological Museum of London.

This discovery was made together with other 410 Roman tablets (of which 87 have already been deciphered) in an excavation to erect a new building in the City of London.

In these tablets, which were made of wood and covered in wax to allow writing on them, it has also been found, the oldest reference to London, dated 50 years before the oldest known mention so far by the Roman historian Tacitus.

In addition to the tablets, hundreds of Roman objects such as pottery and coins have been found.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
