Interpretation

    • This nearly complete Romano-British weaving comb with a length of 12.19cm was made out of an antler. Probably deposited sometime after 70AD as part of a Romano-British cave cult, the comb was found at the back of Victoria Cave together with, among other things, several spindle whorls. Accessioned in the T Lord Collection.
