Record ID: PAS-729441
Object type: SPOON
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A fragment from a copper-alloy spoon probably of Roman date. The fragment is broken at both ends: diagonally across the bowl and at the point at which what appears to be an unusual junction element connects the bowl and handle. The bowl, being highly truncated, is of indeterminate form, but has a rounded oval back where it connects to the junction element. This latter rises up from the back of the bowl at ninety degrees to it. It is broadly of flat oval form, with a deep notch cut out of its front edge adjacent to the bowl. The object has a grey surface colour. The presence of such a …

A body fragment from an early Roman copper-alloy wide-cuff bracelet. The fragment is broadly rectangular, broken at both ends.

The upper surface is decorated longitudinally by an incised border at both edges, within which a grooved channel. Within these is what appears to be a complementary grooved channel within the centre of which sits a ridge decorated with diagonally incised nicks. The effect is of ropework either side of a centra…

Broad period: ROMAN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Roman copper-alloy Colchester derivative Polden Hill (flat wing ends type, Western Group) brooch (later 1st to mid-/late-2nd century AD).

A fragment of a Roman copper-alloy bracelet, possibly cut down for reuse as a finger ring.
