In the context of the European Archaeology Days, the Fabri Tignuarii are grateful for the invitation to participate in the reconstruction of roman masonries in the prestigious Amphitheater of Saintes (Charentes-Maritimes). We will recreate different workshops pertaining to the production of quicklime, stone cutting and masonry.

The aim will be to build a free-standing model of a vomitorium, which is an access corridor to the amphitheater. We endeavour for this construction to be made exactly as the Romans would have, using the same tools, materials and methods. The entire process will be thoroughly documented and explained to the public.
