Roman "Crucifixion Spike" Type Nail // Early 1st century AD
A long ancient Roman "Crucifixion Spike" type nail. Roman Britain, c. early 1st century AD. Nice and quite large iron nail. This nail was made within 45 years of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, which most likely occurred in 33 AD. If it were not for the archaeological context of their discovery, these nails would be indistinguishable from the crucifixion nails used in Judea at the time. This nail was part of a discovery found by Professor Richmond in 1961 while excavating a Roman fortress called Inchtuthil in Roman Britain. There is no evidence that this nail was ever used in crucifixion, but it is the exact same type, made at precisely the same time. Extremely well-preserved for iron!
