The Southbroom Figurines
Southbroom, Wiltshire

This tiny statuette of Mercury is one of eight bronze deities unearthed at Southbroom in Wiltshire in the early 19th century. They date from the 3rd century, but their style indicates a strong Celtic influence that was still dominant in Britain. Unusual attributes may actually indicate that some depict otherwise unknown Celtic gods. The figurines may have been used in a household shrine of some sort.
