Roves, Popham Colony, ca. 1607

Contributed by Maine State Museum


Roves were metal pieces used like washers. They were used in shipbuilding and together with the caulking iron remind us of the success of the Popham Colony and the construction of the pinnace, VIRGINIA. They were commonly found in the central part of the Popham Colony's storehouse.
