rather interesting pdf I thought called The sound of magic: Bells in Roman Britain

"Bells are recorded in many published excavation reports from Roman sites, but there has
been no previous study of the British material. This paper explores the significance of bells in
the Roman world from both a ritual and functional perspective. We create a first typology of
Romano-British bells, provide an understanding of their chronology and examine any spatial
and social differences in their use. Special attention is paid to bells from funerary or ritual
contexts in order to explore the symbolic significance of these small objects. Bells from other
parts of the Roman world are considered to provide comparisons with those from Roman
Britain. The paper demonstrates that small bells were used as protective charms and may
have been preferentially placed into the graves of children and young women. The paper
identifies a new, probably Roman type of bell that has no parallels within the Empire,

although similar pieces occur in first- and second-century graves in the Black Sea region."

Thank You, Watermouse, for continuing to update this thread with new and interesting links.

Quote 'Bors': "Where else could you obtain such a vast free amount of knowledge?"

For Bors, and others who've joined the forum in the past 3 years, there's this lengthy and unwieldy forum thread of links worth taking a look at:
viewtopic.php?f=131&t=30454

It hasn't been active since 2015, so it's 'slipped off the radar' somewhat. And inevitably some of the links will be 'dead' , so it's worth trying the WayBack Machine archive, to see if the page has been cached at some point:
https://archive.org/web/
Several of my own posts on there have dead links, I've updated them where possible.

I was just being complimentary to watermouse again for his continual addition of free knowledge as I noticed he is not often thanked for taking the time to put the knowledge up, for others to see for free.

Crikey, Watermouse. You posted up at least 20 links to this and that, which will definitely need to be looked at.
