Honorary Research Fellow Michael Bamforth discovers an unusual Roman artefact
Michael is a wood expert and came across a wooden arm with an open right hand, which has derived from the Roman era.
The discovery was conducted at Warth Park in Raunds, Northamptonshire. Although the analysis of the arm is ongoing, we hope to have further details about this unusual artefact - you can read more at the Current Archaeology website.
