Piece of a bronze bowl

This piece of a bronze bowl was found in a hoard of Roman and native metalwork in Carlingwark Loch in Kirkcudbrightshire. It is one of several Roman objects included in the hoard which dates from between 80 and 200 AD.

The bowl is of beaten bronze.

The Carlingwark hoard contained a mixture of tools, a few weapons, some high quality native craftwork and a few Roman objects, including this example. It was placed in a bronze cauldron, then cast into the loch, probably as a sacrifice to the gods.
