Each everyday object from this fascinating group give an insight into life in the ancient Roman world. For instance; doors opening outward, particularly those of cupboards were not bolted, but closed with lock and key. There were no separate doors to single rooms which were closed only by curtains so as not to shut out the fresh air from the generally small bedrooms and sitting rooms. Poles and rings for these curtains have been found at Pompeii.
