Roman Cheese Presses

An October 18th post to the London Archaeological Archive and Research Centre (LAARC) VIP blog mentions a Roman period cheese press (illustrated below) excavated in 1973 and recently repackaged. I claim no great familiarity with such objects. But if you're intrigued, you can read about another one in a BBC News report from 2006. And the Google search "roman cheese press" suggests they are an occassional part of the Roman-period assemblage in Britian.

Clicking through on the image drops you into the LAARC photostream on Flickr, which is also recommended.
