Rome Scavenger Hunt

Find objects which people did not have in Roman times, either because they hadn't been invented yet or because they came from some other part of the world.

Some suggestions:

anything plastic (toys, mixing bowls, spoons)
anything electronic (TV, VCR, telephone, doorbell, refrigerator, stove)
indoor plumbing (toilet, sink)
synthetic fabrics (nylon, fiberfill, rayon, polyester)
water heater
ballpoint pens
pencils
paper
New World foods like avocadoes and potatoes
Indian food like bananas
a lot of garbage and pollution
anything knit, like a sweater
photographs

I'd be happy to hear your suggestions too! Please write and tell me about your scavenger hunt.
