The Romans used forks to serve food. The two-pronged fork has been used for centuries. The three-pronged and four-pronged fork were used mainly during the Late Roman period (third to fifth century AD). Presumably mostly the middle class and the elite used a fork. Most of the forks that were excavated were made of more expensive materials such as bronze and silver, some of bone.
This replica of a Roman fuscinula, or three-pronged fork, is made of brass and has a handle with decorative details. An asset for lovers of Roman replicas, re-enactors and museums.
