Roman clay plate with imprints of a child’s foot and deer claw. The object is about 1,800 years old and was found in Ummendorf (southwest Germany).

A frequent find from Roman times are the remains of tiles from ancient houses. Probably the prints were made on clay tiles that were still wet and drying in the sun.
