About this creation
I wanted to make a simple MOC showing the everyday experience of Roman citizens in Britain - so I chose this one, the funeral of a Roman merchant.



Tombstones are the most common of all remains surviving from Roman times and not far from the fort of Bremenium, located at what is now Rochester, was a large graveyard flanking the road.



If you were rich, funerals were an elaborate affair and the scene above depicts such an event. From left to right is the funeral director (Dissignator), a lyre player, a hired mourner (Praeficae), slaves carrying the lectus funebris and family mourners.

Quoting Magma ! Very good MOC! The composition is nice and you did a good job with the minifigs. The road could use some more texturing though.
Thanks for the C&C, Magma; I will take it on board the next time I build a road.
