This is a piece of a post-medieval onion wine bottle that I found at the side of a footpath in a ploughed field during a local walk. Our local archeaologist at Luton museum identified it as the base of a bottle commonly made after the Middle Ages and is, therefore, a real link to the actual people who lived and worked in our area. Because of finding this object I have now become a regular volunteer at the museum.
