Antler Pin, Lockerbie

Description:

The pin has been manufactured from the tip of a small roe deer antler tine, its shape following the natural curvature of the tine.

It was found in a cremation burial at Lockerbie Academy. The white, brittle appearance of the pin suggests that it passed through the pyre, being worn by the deceased, prehaps to pin a cloak, or tunic in place.
