Roman dagger. A Roman soldier lost the dagger in the waters and marshland near Rossington Bridge Roman fort. The iron dagger had a bone handle which consisted of several parts, each separated by the iron washers on the existing tang which can still be seen.
The dagger also had a wooden and leather sheath and part of the original wood still exists on the blade. Currently located in Doncaster Museum and Gallery in Yorkshire.
