human figure (figurine)

Star objects


Wooden human figures like this are incredibly rare, with only six other finds known in Britain. This one was found by chance during quarrying in 1867. It may have been a religious idol, a gift to the gods or even a child’s toy.

This object is on display at RAMM in the Making History gallery.
