    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    possibly from a hay fork rope. Couldn't find the same one but something like this.

    It is made of the same stuff as most of the other things I find in the woods around here which I believe is just iron though I'm far from an expert on the subject. It is too thick to be a gasket though, almost but not quite a 1/4 inch from my eyeballs perspective It is going in the electrolysis bucket after the horseshoe I also found is done so maybe cleaning it up will reveal something.

    It reminds me of this used for rescue ropes . but my confidence in this guess is pretty low.

    Looks like an evener for a rope or chain?

    not heavy enough for it to be a hay fork rope attachment. I thought it looked heavier. Would also not be heavy enough for a rescue rope descender. Seems too thick for a gasket though.
