Roman Finds in Winteringham
Roman Bow Brooch 400w
Roman Buckle

Information from Kate Roe:

Roman / Romano British belt buckle and dates from about the fourth century AD. They seem especially common in Lincolnshire - that is three or four have been reported to have been found here as opposed to one or two elsewhere! However it makes me wonder that perhaps they had a link to the builder or owner of the chariot race mosaic at Horkstow? Were they given to charioteers perhaps who wore them with pride?

Steelyard weight

A steelyard weight

This is the weight suspend on a rod, and as it is moved left or right, balances the rod, and therefore weighs the object in the weighing pan.  Used by merchants as a portable scale.

 

Modern equivalents may be seen in doctors surgeries, schools, sports facilities etc.
