A combined tooth pick and ear scoop has been found during the annual archaeological dig on the Isle of Man.
The tool was found at Rushen Abbey
The unusual tool, which was unearthed at Rushen Abbey, is thought to be more than 800 years old.
Finds assistant Claire Corkill said it was an exciting discovery, and was carved out of bone.
"It's an ear scoop at one end, for cleaning the wax out of the ears, but the other end is a toothpick. It's a really nice find," she said.
"It's beautifully carved out of bone with a spiral design all the way down the handle," she added.
