Possible Roman knife handle

Top finds in August from Wrexham Heritage Society

The 7th August saw CPAT's Jeff Spencer and Rod Trevaskus attend a meeting of one of Wrexham’s two metal detecting clubs. Quarterly liaison with club members allows discussion and identification of recently discovered artefacts. With the permission of the finders a select few are borrowed for further photography and detailed recording back at the CPAT offices in Welshpool.

Medieval seal matrix ‘Top finds’ reported this quarter were a possible late prehistoric or Roman knife handle terminal in the shape of a human head and shoulders, a medieval open-topped thimble and a medieval matrix for forming a wax seal.
