Honourable discharge certificates issued to non-citizen Roman legionaries after 25 years service (26 in the navy), cast in bronze and granting, among other things, them and their descendants Roman citizenship and all the rights and privileges that went with it.

It's 1,950 years old, and still has 5 of the original 7 seals intact.

Fascinating thread on these ancient documents.
Of COURSE the Romans would be the ones to invent the 3-ring binder.

Very important Roman remains have been discovered in Yorkshire, in the north of England


I see standard Roman wall construction. They would lay fitted stones on the two sides of the wall to define the thickness, then fill the gap between with "rubble" (random shaped rocks) and concrete mix, which locks the mass together. If memory serves, they didn't use shuttering or forms to hold the wall together as it hardens, so they built one layer at a time.
