Celtic shield found

Anyone seen this?
Although not specifically roman I think it's a general interest find that will inform other areas.
It's method and materials in construction are really interesting, and that it has no metal used on it.

It's described as the same shape as the battersea shield which may shed some new light on that object too as a metal version of  an existing common shaped thing.

Its called the "Enderby Shield" thanks for bringing it to my attention...

Very Interesting construction, possibly a first..

"And the four bare walls stand on the seashore. a wreck a skeleton a monument of that instability and vicissitude to which all things human are subject. Not a dwelling within sight, and the farm labourer, and curious traveller, are the only persons that ever visit the scene where once so many thousands were congregated." T.Lewin 1867
