I wonder what year this water vessel is from….
Dubai is the hottest place I’ve been to. It’s insane!

Notes on culture
Reading about the Kedalang water vessel led me to question how other older civilizations dealt with the warm weather. Southern and centre Italy can get really warm during the summer with temperatures reaching 40°C. Thus, I started researching how ancient Romans adapted to such high temperatures.
One of the common solutions was taking a bath in a “frigidarium” which was a large cold pool
found in every Roman bath. For those who could afford it, another solution was to escape the cities altogether and go to their villas in small towns near the sea, to spend their time enjoying the beaches. Finally, the wealthiest Romans would even go as far as to import snow from the mountains. They would use this snow in a similar way to how we nowadays use ice. A particularly great use of snow is for the creation of ice cream. The Roman ice cream was called “Snow of Olympus” and it was made with ice, fruit juices, honey, and wine as a base and could include cinnamon, rose water, violets, almonds, dates, and figs. I think it is quite interesting to note that many of those solutions to the hot weather are used by Romans today. Many go to the pools to refresh themselves in the city. The lucky ones also go to seaside villages across Italy or abroad. Finally, thousands of years haven’t changed Italians’ love for ice cream, so it is commonplace in Italy to enjoy ice cream several days a week during the hottest months and it is delicious and refreshing!

So happy to see the dhiil on the museum website. I made similar ones when living in Somalia. It was something I learnt from my mother.
11 May, 2023
I had the honour of getting a tour of the Museum with a group of Somali women. We had the opportunity to discuss the history and richness of other cultures as well as our own. To see the enjoyment and glee on the women’s faces when we got to see a representation of the Somali community within the Museum was wonderful. Having the space and opportunity to also discuss what our heritage meant to ourselves was eye opening and empowering, it created a warm sense of unity amongst the women. Thank you to the organisers for giving us this opportunity and we hope to do this again.

Women from Somali Advice Link discussed how methods of sterilisation were used in Somalia. These are for camel milk, and the Somali people were the first to develop a method of sterilisation using a type of wood that is burnt like charcoal and added to the milk to make it last for days.
During a Multilingual Museum workshop Amina told us :
I brought this set of ‘dhiil’, containers for milk, as an example of handmade cups made by Somali women. These are made from the bark of a tree. We call it the qabo tree in Somali.

What is the hottest place you’ve ever been to?
Well, the hottest place I have ever been to… it happens to be my home country – Greece.
Greece is an archipelagic country in Southeast Europe. I have seen a lot, and very long,
scorching summer days in my life with temperatures reaching 42 degrees Celsius. However,
the hottest day ever recorded in Greece was a staggering 48 degrees Celsius on the July 10th, 1977.
