Was looking through some photos and thought this was interesting.
I cannot recall if the finds are from the Boudican revolt period or not, but thought some might find the photos interesting.

And the Coolus on display. In the lower left of this photo is a spear butt(amusingly labeled as an artillery bolt head), and some slingshot and a sling.

The hamata has the fastening hooks still attached and is described as having a black finish.
Thanks for posting these Byron

Do you have any details of the belt?

Do you or does anyone else know if the collection has been published anywhere?

Graham.
I am afraid I don't Graham. It was a couple of years back now...2008 I think, and apart from being
part of the display, I had not heard of the collection at all before hand.
It was quite a surprising little museum. You could always contact them I suppose.
A lot of pretty interesting artifacts. And some amazing mosaics.

Some hores fittings....although the 2 in the top right almost look like later scabbard chapes?

And some horse shoes apparently?

Then knocked over this lamp holder and burnt the whole town down.....saved boudicca the trouble :lol:

Someone does a copy of this I'm sure....

And some decent lamp remains

And an interesting little chest in the background.

And the mosaics which if IRC come from the villa which can be seen up in the park.

The last ones are displayed very imaginatively. Quite inspired layout I think.
Now to try and dig my way out of this meandering thread somehow.
