Reconstructed Roman Villa – Augusta Raurica (#10)

A little alcove in a wall, where the pater familias would burn herbs and incense as an offering to his ancestors and to the family deities. This was so reminiscent of Indian households where a similar alcove (or a small wood/cement shelf) serves the very same function even today.
