Wooden "arm" discovered in Britain
Oxford Archaeology East

In Northamptonshire (central England) a wooden longitudinal object was discovered, which according to scientists was an offering to the deity. The artifact shows a small arm made of one piece of wood.

The discovery was made at the bottom of the well. Lack of air caused that the object did not decompose. No traces of connections exclude the fact that the arm was part of the sculpture.

Researchers succeeded in dating the object on the 1st-3rd century CE. At the bottom of the well fragments of Roman ceramics were also found.
