    • Large (Max. Di. 2.4cm) bi-conical Romano-British Bone bead with slightly off centre, straight piercing. Lower half with zone of straight grooves upper half with two zones of angled grooves. Bone/antler beads are not common in Romano-British assemblages and this example does not appear to be copying specific glass/jet styles. “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. It is currently archived in the Tot Lord collection in Yorkshire.
