Did you know Leiden museum has a similar Roman mirror to Whitchurch Heritage Centre ?

On display at Whitchurch Heritage Centre is a Roman mirror. It was found in the 1970s near the junction of Sedgford and Edgeley Road.

One of our volunteers, Abi Taylor, is studying for her master’s degree in Leiden, Holland and visited the local musem (Rijksmuseum van Oudheden). There she spied a Roman mirror very similar to ours.
