Dutch Romans

At OOOMS we are intrigued by the history of The Netherlands.
A great way to get into contact with products of the past is by metal detecting. The idea that any signal could be a historical treasure is a feeling that’s highly addictive.

Now the finds have become an inspiration for a new OOOMS project; Dutch Romans. These are macro images of 2000 year old Roman coins that have been found in the Netherlands. While the focus with metal detecting is mainly on pristine quality, with the Dutch Romans project we are fascinated by the corrosion process, and the shapes and colors that come to life.

The coins that are used are all determined by professional archeologists. Each print carries the name of the emperor that once was clearly visible on the coins.  In the description you can read the time period the coins were made, which is around 50 AD for most of them!
