The guys- Matthew and his guys- are in the process of putting new fencing in round the garden- and this object came out of one of the post holes they dug.|
It seems to be made of glass- and was presumably part of some sort of decorative scheme. No, I don't think it's Roman (wish it were) but what on earth was it? We're getting lots of brick out of the same patch of ground so it's fairly obvious that there was once a building there, but- given that our property was never anything grander than a farm- it's unlikely to have been anything but a cowshed or a barn. Would a cowshed have had pretty walls or floors involving the use of sea-green glass tesserae? Doesn't seem likely, does it?
