In the Yorkshire Museum, you can see the rarely preserved Roman hair that once belonged to a young Roman woman.
Specialists estimate that the teenager lived in the late 3rd or early 4th century CE. A bundle of chestnut hair was found in a stone casket, and there were two hairpins in the hair.
At the end of the Roman Empire, a popular hairstyle among women was hair separated by a parting in the middle of the head, which was then collected from behind in a bun or ponytail. Here you can see that the girl preferred a bun, which was in accordance with Christian standards.
IMPERIUM ROMANUM is in process of translation over 3300 Polish articles about history of ancient Rome. If you have the opportunity to financially support the further translations – even with smaller amount – I will be very grateful.
