Mystery object

Anyone would think we were observing the surface of Earth’s moon – but no – what we are looking at is the base of a mystery bottle found beneath the waters of a river.

Martin Richardson is a long-distance follower of Bath Newseum. He lives in Peterborough and writes:

“My name is Martin and i am a keen ‘River Metal Detectorist’.  I travel round the counties detecting in rivers and found a interesting bottle which, I have been told, it is a historical bottle and needs further investigation.

This has been reported to my local Finds Liaison Officer, but they are very busy, and l was wondering if I could send you some pictures of the bottle and get your thoughts on it please?’ 

Let’s see if anyone can Martin!
