Record ID: LIN-B17DA7
Object type: BELL
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A small iron bell plated with copper-alloy using the 'fusion-plating process', of Bourke's class 1 (Bourke 1980). The bell is corroded but appears to be made from a single piece of iron that has been folded in two; the seam, which is located to the side, is now open and it is unclear whether this was once riveted or simply joined with the copper-alloy brazing metal which also covers the body. The base forms a distorted circle and the body tapers to a rectangular apex. A ring was set in the top of the bell which served both as a handle and for a suspension of the clapper. The forme…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A damaged iron knife. The knife has a tapering integral tang. The back of the tang is flush with the back of the blade. The blade edge is missing, but the shape is elongated and the tip is missing. The knife is now bent at the point where blade meets tang. Possibly Anglo-Saxon, but probably much later.

Object type: STUD
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Iron Stud. Wrought Iron stud with a broad straight-sided domed head and a short pointed shank of rectangular section. The good condition should probably argue a relatively recent date. This object would be apt to the reinforcement of a hefty door; the short shank does not suggest a role in the joining of major structural elements, which would more usually be achieved by carpentry. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1800. Length (overall): 53.6mm, Width (head): 55mm by 59mm, Weight: circa 245gms.

Object type: HAMMER
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A complete Post Medieval cast iron hammer head probably dating to the 17th century. This is a claw hammer head with a rectangular socket for the handle and a conical head at one end and angled split end at the other. The conical head is decoratively case with bands of ridges and grooves along the neck. There are also decorative grooves on each side of the socket, near the edges. The iron is in reasonable condition with a few small areas of rust developing on the surface. There are no visible maker's marks. A similar example is recorded on the database as LON- 94C927, which Tony Pi…

Object type: SICKLE
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Possibly a wrought iron socketed sickle fragment dating from the Earliest Iron Age, that is c. 800-600BC. It would have been part of the Early Iron Age Llyn Fawr metalwork assemblage and contemporary with early iron spearheads, wrought iron socketed axes, copper-alloy socketed axes of Sompting and related types and Hallstatt razors.The fragment is very worn and the surface on both obverse and reverse is pitted and flaky and in need of conservation. The edges of the blade are jagged and the original line is difficult to ascertain. The artefact has a strong midrib along its entire lengt…

Object type: SHEARS
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Half of a set of Medieval to Modern shears. One complete blade and arm survive, along with roughly half of the broader connecting loop. The shears are undecorated three pairs of double notches on the sides of the arm. The shears are covered in iron corrosion and part of the edge of the blade has chipped. Shears are often undecorated or simply decorated and there shape changes little between the Medieval and Modern periods, therefore a broad 1200-1900 AD date is suggested. Dimensions: length: 124.29 mm; width: 16.77 mm; thicness: 11.23 mm; weight 11.84g.

Record ID: LON-A5F7C4
Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An incomplete Post Medieval to Modern iron knife. The knife has a complete scale tang with a, now flattened, round terminal. There are two in-situ rivets through the tang, and a hole for a third, which would have held the scales in place. The scales are no longer present. The tang and the blade are integrally attached by a short solid bolster. The blade itself is broken, so the true length of the knife is uncertain. None of the remaining iron knife is decorated. Scale tang knifes were made from the late medieval period onwards, and the lack of decoration or maker's mark on this examp…

Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A fragment of a Post Medieval iron knife, dating AD 1600-1650. The knife has a long, solid bolster, hexagonal in section, which flattens into a narrow blade. The blade has a straight, worn break across its width, 47.9mm from the bolster. At the other end of the bolster is a pin tang with a worn tip. The rest of the handle is missing. The bolster is undecorated beyond its six facets. A knife with a similar hexagonal bolster previously found on the Thames foreshore is early 16th century in date(Brown 2001, 83), so this knife is likely of a similar date. Dimension: length: 119.38 mm; wi…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An incomplete Post Medieval iron knife, dating AD 1550-1650. The knife has a long, solid cylindrical bolster which flats into a narrow blade. The blade has a straight, worn break across its width. At the other end of the bolster is the remains of a tang which has broken near to its start. The rest of the handle is missing. The bolster is decorated with two engraved sets of four-petalled flowers; one set aligned with each face of the blade. The narrow blade and the bolster/tang configuration suggests an early Post Medieval date, AD 1550 to 1650. Similar examples can be found in Brown (…

County: Gateshead
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A cast iron cannonball of Post-Medieval date, probably dating to 1640 or later. The cannonball is spherical with an even coat of corrosion across its surface. There may be some indication through the corrosion of the flashmarks, from the two moulds from which the ball was cast. The weight is approximated at 2.5kg or 5lbs.

Cast iron shot, spherical in shape, with pitted surface, but with most of the surface iron corrosion product having fallen away since it was found, leaving the original object. The shot is about an inch and a quarter in diameter, or 39 mm, which could have been used by the smaller artillery pieces like the 'base', or small cannon, which was the smallest of the 'standard' list of guns of the late 16th century, at one and a quarter inch calibre, but equally could have been used as grape shot for some of the larger pieces. In the 17th century, during the Civil War, any iron object was us…
