A doll’s head

At Market Lavington Museum, we are often made aware of the history in the ground, just below our feet. We are very grateful to the metal detectorists and gardeners, who share their finds with us.

It must have come as a surprise to dig up this pretty little object. The label says it all really. All we can add, is that it was found in the garden of the Fives Court in Market Lavington. This building, sometimes also known as the Racquets Court, was formerly a sports hall for the lords of the manor, but is now a house.

For more information, see From The Fives Court and The Racquets Court.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
