    • Bone toggle or cheek piece (length 9.6 cm). Undecorated with irregular sub-rectangular piercing. A series of clear concentric striations centred on piercing, longitudinal crack appears on two sides of object. Hollowed out centrum. “The Romano-British Archaeology of Victoria Cave, Settle; M.J. Dearne & T.C. Lord, 1998”. Many Roman soldiers came from places with strong beliefs about caves, and we now think Victoria was the site of a Romano-British cave cult. It is currently archived in the Tot Lord collection in Yorkshire.
