Abstract


An attempt to clarify when and where at Helmsdale the remarkable group of copper alloy bowls and strainers were found. The bowls are described and discussed, along with the results of analysis of their composition. It appears likely that the bowls consist of a mixture of Continental and British pieces, some manufactured in the later second century AD. Others may be later than this and it is quite possible that the group was not deposited until the third or perhaps even the fourth century AD. Au
