Pilaster Capital. Rectory Farm, Godmanchester 3D Model
This pilaster capital was carved from oolitic limestone and was recovered from excavations near the Roman town of Durovigutum, modern Godmanchester in the 1990s. Origianlly forming the domed top of a niche, it was later deposited in a pond in the 3rd or 4th century AD. This capital, measuring 335mm high, 370mm wide and 470mm shows signs that it was dressed with a broad chisel. It is slightly hollowed to ensure a good fit along the edges with the adjoining block. The front has, on the left side, the capital of a pilaster which projects 105mm from it.
