Humanoid Figurine Found In Wimpole: Man Or God, Roman Or Celtic?

Archaeologists in England have discovered an ancient humanoid figurine but they’re unsure whether it represents a god, or an everyday person. What do you think? The ancient humanoid figurine is finely detailed with a moustache, a short back and, possibly, a mullet hairstyle. Researchers say it offers a unique insight into the trends among native men in Roman-era Britain. However, what is not yet clear is whether this humanoid figurine depicts an ordinary man, or a divine being, as there are symbolic elements suggesting both possibilities.

The tiny 1st century AD humanoid figurine was unearthed in 2018 by archaeologists while they were pre-excavating a new car park at the Wimpole Estate, a country house located within the Parish of Wimpole, Cambridgeshire, England, about 8.5 miles (13.7 km) southwest of Cambridge.

The Meaning Of The Humanoid Figurine Has Been Elusive

An article about the discovery published in The Guardian says the ancient male figure offers “a rare glimpse into ordinary Britons’ appearance,” or, into how they conceived their imagined gods. – Reconstructing the story of humanity’s past
