An 1800-year-old stone carving of the head of what probably is a Roman God was found during an archaeological dig at Binchester, Roman Fort. The head resembles Antenociticus, a Celtic deity associated with military prayers in the region. The head was found in the equivalent of an ancient garbage dump, not far from a shrine.
