Dea Senuna


The hoard of Roman-British temple treasure discovered at Ashwell in 2002 provides fascinating new insights into the ritual of Roman religion. This is the first full publication of the Ashwell treasure since its high profile discovery in 2002, and features a detailed, highly illustrated discussion of the beautiful gold and silver votive plaques as well as the figurine of the previously unknown goddess Senuna. It will be essential reading for anyone with an interest in Roman religion, especially in Roman Britain, as well as historians and archaeologists.

Reviews & Quotes

"In sum, this is a scholarly publication of significant merit and will be of wide interest for many years to come, not just to Roman scholars but also those interested in the archaeology of ritual and religion, feasting and the curation of ancient artefacts in the past. The high standard and success of this publication is a testament to the expertise of the two authors: one a highly regarded local archaeologist, and the other, one of the most well-respected museum curators of his generation."
