> Whilst excavating the possible site of a 7th century Cistercian
> monastery, I found a blackened wooden cylinder (may have been fire
> damaged or charcoaled) approximately 1.5 cm diameter by about 2cm
> long. On one ended was incised either a double tanged fish hook or a
> stylised tree together with a fish set parallel to the fish hook
> shank/tree trunk. Any ideas what it might be?
A float, perhaps?
