The Iron Age

Domestic

Piece of Socketed Wood

Period:
Iron Age
Description:

It is not known what the holes cut into this piece of wood were for, perhaps some sort of basket or wicker cage, given the sloping angle of the holes and the fact that they go all the way round. It is a fine example of a rare surviving wooden artifact from the Iron Age.
