Full Description

An almost complete, late Roman copper-alloy bowl was found in 1984, in a field bordering the River Witham, to the south of Fiskerton. A similar bowl was found about 150m west of this in 1981 (see PRN 52903). It is an 'Irchester type' bowl, named after a bronze bowl hoard found at Irchester, Northamptonshire. These are characterised by an omphalos base, rounded body and inturned rim, although this one displays only a slight incised line beneath the rim. It is 201mm diameter and 110mm high, was raised from a single sheet of metal, and is in good repair with only one small hole near its rim. {1}
