Tube

Description
This metal tube was found during excavations at the Roman site in St Loyes, Exeter, and was conserved by the museum’s conservation team. It is decorated with fine grooves and contained traces of a white powder, suggesting it was originally attached to an object made from lead. While it is known to have been made and used during the Roman period it is not known what it was used for.
