    • Hook (length 6.7cm) Constructed from antler tine, thinned, irregularly expanded. Head of hook pierced. “The Romano-British Archaeology of Victoria Cave, Settle; M.J. Dearne & T.C. Lord, 1998” Many Roman soldiers came from places with strong beliefs about caves, and we now think Victoria was the site of a Romano-British cave cult. This artefact is currently archived in the Tot Lord collection in Yorkshire.
