St David’s Day
Tumblr media
In honour of #StDavidsDay here are the wonderful Penbryn Spoons, which were found in 1829 beneath a heap of stones inside the Castell Nadolig hillfort, near Penbryn in Ceredigion, Wales. The pair of cast bronze ‘spoons’ date to the Late Iron Age (c. 50 BC–AD 100). They are extremely rare with only ten pairs known from Britain.
Wide and shallow, with short decorated handles, they are thought to have been used for divining (telling the future), with liquid dripped from the spoon with the hole onto the other.
