    • Needle (Length 9.1cm) Probably constructed from antler, very thin curved and flat with expanded flat topped head and eye. ”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.
