Roman Wooden Combs

Roman Wooden Combs

These wooden double sided combs are very common on Roman sites. This particular example is copied from a find from the Roman fort at Carlisle (Howard-Davis, 2009). They can be produced in a variety of woods to suit, but the most common is Yew, and currently I have some very nice and ancient yew in, which has naturally aged to a very dark brown colour (no stain has been used on the example below).
