Object type: ANVIL
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Milton Keynes
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete, wrought iron, Roman, probable, anvil, AD.43-450. The object comprises a cuboid block of iron, the top surface appears slightly domed from repeated striking. The sides appear to be fairly parallel, though there is a slight taper from the top to the bottom.. The object has a fairly even dark black patina with patches of orange oxidation.

Record ID: NMS-2314D4
Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Milton Keynes
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron spearhead, in quite firm condition but with part of the socket including the proximal end missing. The slightly bent leaf-shaped blade is narrow and elongated. Both its faces are flat, i.e. without a midrib. The socket is not split. Extant length 148mm. Width 17mm. The slenderness and the small size suggest the object is not a theatrical object, but that it may be "ethnographic", from somewhere outside Europe. The date is uncertain.
