Object type: FLUE TILE
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of Roman (AD 43-410) ceramic building material in the form of box flue tile. The fabric is sandy and oxidised, and the decoration comprises either combed or rolled curved, parallel grooves. It measures 81.64mm long, 73.15mm wide, 29.67mm thick and weighs 236g.

A copper alloy as of Hadrian (AD 117-38), probably dating to AD 134-8 (Reece Period 6). The obverse has an illegible legend, but a laureate head or bust right.
