Valentinas Avdejevas, a metal detectorist, discovered a Roman toilet spoon made of silver in the Vale of Glamorgan in South Wales. The spoon, known as a Roman ligula, was a multipurpose tool used to extract perfume or cosmetics from bottles and to apply medicine. Its silver composition suggests it may have been used for its antimicrobial properties. The spoon has been designated as a treasure under the Treasure Act 1996. Another metal detectorist in the same area found a Bronze Age hoard consisting of fragments from two swords and five socketed axes, dating back to 1000-800 BCE.
