partifact for ID assistance

Post by mace247 » Tue Aug 13, 2019 5:15 pm

Hello

Here is a little piece from yesterdays walk on my good roman field... great big signal followed by what I initially thought was a bit of an old toy cannon.

However, has what looks like a broken loop on the top and a divider running down the inside...

Not sure if it's old or new, got me flummoxed - any ideas?

I did wonder at a whistle but I figured it would have to open both ends... what period would you say?

"Not sure if it's old or new, got me flummoxed - any ideas"?

It looks quite an early one so possibly late 18th C or early 19th C. Regards ss47
A disservice is no service at all.
