Thought I'd post a picture of a Roman artifact, that I found in a field a few years ago.
It's a hound which was part of a handle on a Roman knife.
It would have originally had a hare on it as well (chased by the hound), but this has been lost in antiquity.
The hound has a collar on it. dh:)

Thanks. No I found it when I was down in Lincolnshire.
At an archaeological/ metal detecting weekend.
Had a few roman bronzes and a Celtic silver unit coin as well. So was pretty happy.

Hello Saorsa,

Many thanks for the picture and the interesting informations.

The Romans conquered Lincolnshire in 48 AD.

I think your Roman knife part with the hound is very very old.
