The Roman Toga The toga is the definitive representation of the Ancient Roman. It is depicted in Ancient and Renaissance art, and various styles of the toga have lasted throughout the generations. Togas were important social representations, denoting power, occupation, and social place of upper class Roman citizens. Coming from the Etruscans, and modified throughout the years, the toga was worn exclusively by prominent Roman men through the period of the Republic and the early Empire, though not always happily.

In My Blood It Runs - The Education Shop Ten-year-old Dujuan is a child-healer, a good hunter and speaks three languages. Yet Dujuan is 'failing' in school and facing increasing scrutiny from welfare and the police. As he travels perilously close to incarceration, his family fight to give him a strong Arrernte education alongside his western education lest he becomes another statistic.
