Romano-British Ear Scoop 3D Model
This Romano-British ear scoop would once have been part of a cosmetics set. It was found at the back of Victoria Cave, Yorkshire, and probably belonged to someone connected with the Roman army. Soon after the Roman conquest of northern Britain in the AD 70s, people started placing many small objects in the cave, mostly in areas that were dark and difficult to reach. Many Roman soldiers came from places with strong beliefs about caves, and we now think Victoria Cave was the site of a new Romano-British cave cult.
