The tablets, postcard-sized sheets of fir, spruce, and larch, dated mainly from a couple of decades after the Roman conquest of Britain, in A.D. 43, straddling the period, in the reign of Nero, when Boudica’s rebellion very nearly got rid of the occupation altogether.

The language is Aramaic – it’s a Middle Eastern mystery to us,” Miomir Korac, chief archaeologist at the site in eastern Serbia, told Reuters.
