Rude Roman knife from Lincolnshire to feature on ITV show
A rather rude relic unearthed in Lincolnshire will feature in a ITV television show tonight.
A Roman knife handle was found in Grantham back in 2008.
But it stunned the metal detector enthusiast who found it - who quickly realised that it formed the shape of three naughty figures romping.
The knife is on display at The Collection in Lincoln.

It depicts three figures in an erotic embrace - but one is holding a severed head.
It will feature on episode two of Britain’s Secret Treasures, featuring some 'naughtier' historical items.
Archaeologist and county council finds liaison officer, Adam Daubney, along with curator Antony Lee, will appear on the show.
Mr Daubney said: “This is a unique find for Lincolnshire and highlights just how rich in history our county is.”

The episode will air tonight at 8.30pm on ITV1.
