Record ID: SOM-84CE01
Object type: TWEEZERS
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A pair of copper-alloy tweezers possibly Roman in date, although a medieval date cannot be ruled out entirely. The tweezers are formed from a single piece of copper alloy, rectangular in cross-section. This has been folded over on itself at a defined loop to form a sprung end; the sides abut each other below the loop. They arms flare gradually along their length (4.1mm at the loop to 12.5mm at the tip) towards the tip. The arms are thinned at the gripping ends to create the nibs, both angled in at right angles. The metal has a dark-green patina which generally survives well.
