  2000-Year-Old Roman Tweezers and Metal Ear Swab Discovered in UK At the site of the new Springhead Bridge in the UK, workers stumbled upon what appears to be tweezers and an ear cleaner dating back to the Roman Empire 2000 years ago.The artifacts were dug up by the Ebbsfleet Development Corporation at the location of the new Springhead Bridge in Ebbsfleet Garden City, a development in Kent. One small tool appears to be designed for pinching and plucking small items just like modern-day tweezers. The other object is thought to have been built for cleaning ears—but instead of cotton, the "swab" is made entirely of metal. They're thought to date back thousands of years, but scientific analysis will need to be done to determine the exact age.

He added he 'absolutely denied' beating and raping French photographer Valentine Monnier at his Swiss chalet in 1975.

'Obviously I have no memory of it because it is false,' he told Paris Match magazine, before pouring scorn on her story.

'Clearly accusing me of rape isn't sensational enough any more, you have to add another layer.

'I do not hit women,' he added.

Monnier, who was an 18-year-old model and actress at the time, went public as Polanski's new film, 'An Officer and a Spy', was released in France last month. 

She said Polanski also tried to give her a pill as he beat her 'into submission'.

But the director repeatedly ridiculed her claims as 'aberrant' in the interview, before turning on Weinstein.

Polanski accuses media of ' trying to make me into a monster '. Film director Roman Polanski has spoken out for the first time since another woman accused him of rape He said he "absolutely denied" beating and raping French photographer Valentine Monnier at his Swiss chalet in 1975.

He blamed the producer for starting a whispering campaign against him to sabotage his chances of an Oscar after 'The Pianist' won best film and best director at the British Bafta awards.

Weinstein had been pushing his own film, 'Chicago', which won six Oscars including best picture.

'It was him who dug up my case with Samantha Geimer from 26 years before which no one was interested in anymore,' Polanski told Paris Match. 'His press agent was the first person to call me a 'child rapist'.

The movie, which drew on some of Polanski's own experiences as a Jewish child in Poland during the Holocaust, went on to win three Oscars including best director.

Polanski admitted to the statutory rape of Geimer in a plea bargain in 1977 to avoid a trial on more serious charges.

But he fled to France after serving 42 days in jail when it appeared a judge was reconsidering his release.

Asked by Paris Match if he felt a victim of the saga, Polanski said that 'for years they have been trying to make me into a monster'.

Polanski insisted that he was only speaking out now for the sake of his wife, French actress Emmanuelle Seigner, and his children.

'I am used to the lies, my skin has thickened. But for my children and for Emmanuelle it's appalling. They are suffering enormously. They are insulted and threatened on social media.'

'Of course I am responsible,' the 86-year-old told the magazine. 'In 1977 I made a mistake and it is my family who are paying the price half a century later.'

Polanski accused the media of treating him with 'incredible violence'.

'They seize on every new false accusation, no matter how absurd, because it lets them bring up this story. It is like a curse which keeps coming back and I can do nothing about.'

Polanski also claimed that Geimer, who he was accused of drugging and raping at Jack Nicholson's Los Angeles' home, had suffered more from the press than anything he had done to her.

'She and her family have suffered because of what I did, and despite me it continues,' he told Paris Match.

'It wasn't Samantha but the prosecutor who accused me of those crimes. I pleaded guilty to having sex with a minor. Only Samantha and I know what happened that day,' he added.

'Since her name came out she has lived through hell. For years she has been asking the US authorities to close the chase and stop chasing me,' Polanski said.

'She has written to the prosecutor several times to explain that the trauma the media circus causes her is a lot worse than what I subjected her to. Nobody takes this into account,' he added. 

Polanski cannot return to the US for fear of arrest. Despite being expelled from the US Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, he has been defended by many in the French film industry.

Protesters in France forced several screenings of 'An Officer and a Spy' to be abandoned.

But the movie has become one of the most successful French films of the year, with more than 1,150,000 flocking to see its first three weeks.
