c.3rd/4th Century A.D. A decent segment from a Roman redware terracotta roof tile excavated in London. This robust segment features a section of ridging which would have locked the tiles together. The tile was probably from the roof of a vill or temple. This item is just one of a number of assorted Roman artefacts excavated from the same site in London c.1939 and hails from an Amateur Archaeologists own private collection amassed during the 1930's and all the items also once formed part of a Museum display as various display signage and labelling accompanied the collection. All items in this particular Roman group were unearthed at a depth of 24 feet below Western Union House, 22 Great Winchester Street, London during re-inforcement work to a basement air raid shelter. Jug intact and whole with some old repairs to neck and handle otherwise in nice condition. A good sized and nicely provenanced segement of Roman roof tile from Britains capital, 100mm long x tall x 67mm wide and 52mm high.
