Archaeology Notes

NT63SW 90 c. 61 30

NT 61 30 Metal detecting around Maxton produced a Romano-British trumpet brooch, a fragment of a Norse silver ingot, and a lead weight. The plano-convex bar ingot (70.8g) has been cut up, and bears nicking to test the silver quality. The weight (50.1g) is biconical. Declared Treasure Trove (TT 40/02 and 42/02) and allocated to Scottish Borders Museums, where full details are held.
