My Roman Pantheon is an interactive installation that invites visitors to take part in the Roman religion and its practices. At the entrance, visitors stop at the shrine of Juno, the queen of the Roman gods, to collect a votive lamp. Juno gives them three lights as offerings. Inside the museum, the visitor must carefully choose, among 13 deities, which three will receive their offerings. This will determine the visitor's future on Hadrian's Wall. On leaving, the visitor returns the votive lamp to Juno and receives an oracle with their future based on the choices they made.
