Bone Spoons

Bone Spoon from South Shields

This particular example is copied from a find from the Roman fort in South Shields (Allason-Jones and Miket, 1984). Unfortunately, the precise dating from this particular example has been lost, though stylistically the object is suitable for the majority of the Roman period. The bowl is oval, the neck round, and the handle flattened out, with diagonal saw cuts decorating the plate, andnotch cuts decorating the edges.

Roman Spoon from Carlisle

This is a small round bowled spoon, based on an example found in Carlisle during the Millennium Excavations (Howard-Davis C, 2009, p 862). These would be very suitable for eating shellfish, as the base material does not taste subtle flavoured food like a metal spoon would.
