Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL

A square, copper alloy coin weight of postmedieval date.

Object type: COIN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
An incomplete copper alloy coin of Philip IV of Spain (1621-65), revalidated to 8 maravedis. Probably issued 1624, although not certain as the date is situated to the right side of the shield on the reverse which is illegible due to corrosion. A similar, though smaller type was issued in 1625 and 1626. In the 1630s – 1650s period these coins were countermarked to revalidate them. The countermark usually consisted of a figure 8, or VIII in a small circle and sometimes a second mark, which gave the date. This coin has a letter B below the VIII, which would seem to indicate that …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Prehistoric - Post Medieval rounded stone (Highland granite) object possibly a grinder or a smoother. The stone has been worked to form a globular shape with one surface slightly flattened, possibly through use. Jon Cotton and Geoff Egan suggest that it may be a grinder or have a use in the laundry process but it is a little small to be a linen smoother. It is impossible to assign a date with any degree of certainty. The stone could have been deliberately brought to London for manufacturing or it may have arrived in London as ballast and then be modified. Dimensions: diame…

Object type: SHOE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Post Medieval fragments of a leather shoe (late 18th – 19th century). The fragments include the vamp (front upper), two pieces of the sole, the cupping from the heel (U-shaped piece) and the inner sole. There is an iron rivet still present in the cupping. The shoe probably was a low-cut slip-on shoe possibly with a stacked heel. The heel and the back of the upper are missing as well as the rest of the sole. Based on the size the shoe was probably for a female or a youth. All the fragments are from the same shoe. The inner sole has wear depressions and there is an oval per…
