    • Pierced spoon, circular sectioned shaft tapering towards a stylised spider head with two pairs of centrally grooved ‘legs’ with two ‘representative eyes’ above the ‘legs’. Asymmetrically oval bowl with oval piercing, vertical grooves above and below it, four irregularly spaced double ring and dots around the top of the bowl and four single rings below. Gentle curve to bowl with a well polished surface and off white patina. 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. ”The Romano-British Archaeology of Victoria Cave, Settle; M.J. Dearne & T.C. Lord, 1998”
