Full Description

PRN 60456 A small limestone relief showing a male figure was found in the 1940s. The sculpture is almost certainly a Romano-British votive relief and shows a local native deity who may be associated with hunting, although the stone is worn and it is difficult to make out details of the carving. The stone is too small to have been a tombstone, and suggests the presence of a shrine nearby. {1}{2}{3}{4}
