A fragment of a Roman ceramic relief-patterned box flue tile dating from AD 50-400. The front is decorated with a relief-patterned rolled design in the chevron style.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete cast copper-alloy steelyard weight of Roman date. The weight is in the form of a female head wearing a Corinthian helmet which was likely to represent Minerva.

At the top of the helmet is a holed triangular projection which would have been used to suspend the weight. Similar steelyard weights have been found at South Shields Rom…
