Record ID: SOM-D37691
Object type: METAL WORKING DEBRIS
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Three amorphous blobs of copper alloy with rounded shapes that suggest they are cooled runs of liquid metal and two posslbe mis-cast pieces or other waste. Of the latter two one is a flat piece of copper alloy with one roughly right angle corner and the opposite edge bent up at c.70 degrees, 22.65grams. The other is a thicker flat piece with again one edge bent up through a curve to 70 degrees and the opposite edge turned down at a right angle, with an irregular break across it, c.19.44 grams. Both have many air bubbles in them, similar to the other casting waste. The other pieces we…

Object type: TWEEZERS
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Copper-alloy tweezers. Tweezers can be difficult to date as they alter very little between the start of the Roman period through to the early Anglo-Saxon period (43-750). These tweezers are formed from a single strip of copper-alloy that has a rectangular cross-section. The strip has been bent in half to form a suspension loop at the closed end. The external surface of the loop has a slight 'U' shaped depression along the centre that stops on both sides before the two sides of the strip come together again. The oval gap created by the loop has a length of 2.76mm and width of 1.32mm. T…

An unidentified copper-alloy object of Unknown date. It is largely made of thin sheet copper-alloy and comprises 27 pieces that are probably all from the same object. The two large pieces do not fit together. Both larger pieces are curved in cross-section and at the front of each there is curving ribbed decoration. The larger piece has an elongated projection terminating in a lug that has two copper-alloy rivets holding a fragment of copper-alloy. On one side of the projection there is a sub-rectangular lug. On the outer face of the projection there are decorative lines of small l…

Object type: KEY (LOCKING)
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A complete but broken into two fragments, late Medieval-Victorian, wrought/forged, rusty iron chest or door key. A medium size, very rusty, relatively plain key with circular bow handle, shank with possible collar and rectangular bit. The heavy encrusted corrosion masks any fine detail but the bit could possibly consist of a nose and two bullets. Badly rusted, irregular encrusted surface but also corroded and broken right through just below the handle. This key could date between 1400-1899. Ref. Keys - Their History & Collection, Eric Monk, Shire Publications 1979, page 13-26 and Dete…

Object type: SLAG

County: Doncaster
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A piece of tap slag of uncertain date from Roman to Post Medieval. It is dense, magnetic and black to purple in colour. It forms a thick plate which is rough and irregular on the lower face, with characteristic runs of solidified molten metal across the top face. This piece is just one small example of the many pieces recovered from the same place. Tap-slag is slag that is 'tapped' from a bloomery furnace. This is carried out during smelting so as to allow the long continuance of the operation. It cools to a solid slag with marked flow lines. There were fewer bloomeries after the…

A complete, Late Medieval-Victorian, wrought/forged, rusty iron door key. The key is large in size, very rusty and relatively plain. The key has an oval bow handle, solid shank with possible collar just before the rectangular bit with possible cleft and bullets. The pin projects a little forward beyond the bit.

Possibly complete, probably late Roman, cast, copper alloy, unidentified object. The object is flat, curled or serpentine shaped with a loop terminal for attachment or to pivot around. It looks as though it could possibly be a broken military hamata fastener, an incomplete fragment once of the serpentine form. This could have served as a fastener for the shoulder section of chain mail with a pair of ornate fasteners attached to the chest. This type of fitting was more evident in the auxilliary forces and cavalry units. The fitting has eleven hand punched ringed annulet decorations, th…

Object type: POTTERS STAMP
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Worcestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A cast copper-alloy object, probably a potter's stamp. The object is 'hourglass' shaped, with flared ends and a waisted middle. It is sub-oval and slightly concvae at one end (perhaps to fit the thumb of the potter), whilst the other end is sub-circular and has an incised cross on it, probably for creating an impression in pottery. What seem to be deliberate crude scratches in the sides of the object may perhaps also have been associated with creating a pattern on the pot. The probable stamp measures 27.37 mm long, 7.16 mm thick in the centre and 10.48 mm in diameter at the incised en…

Object type: PLUMB BOB
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A complete lead alloy plumb bob of unknown date. The object is roughly biconical; it has an elongated circular sectioned shaft with a bulbous perforated terminal at one end; the opposite end of the object terminates in a conical point. It has been decorated with a thick collar at the widest point on the body. A casting seam is visible. The material has a creamy brown-white patina, with some areas marked by a dark brown colour. No close parallel has been found for this design, but a Post Medieval date is suggested based on the similarity in shape to Post Medieval seal matrixes, and the…

Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A incomplete copper alloy object, probably a mount, of Medieval to Post Medieval date, c. 1200-1800 AD. The object has been fashioned from a rectangular copper alloy sheet, pressed with a repeating decoration and silvered or tinned on the decorated surface. The sheet has been pierced on one of the shorter ends with three very small circular holes, with one still potentially holding a fragment of a rivet intact; the other short end has been broken. The decoration consists of a raised series of overlapping sub-rectangular shapes with one trilobed end. A vertical line runs down the centr…

Object type: STYLUS
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
A cast lead stylus of uncertain date. The stylus is circular in section and tapers towards the blunted and worn writing point. The opposite end of the stylus is worn and broken in an irregular shape. The metal is a mid-greyish-white colour and is worn and pitted. The stylus is 40mm long, 6mm in diameter and weighs 8.7g. Stylus' of this type are known to have been in use from the Medieval to post-medieval periods. Therefore, due to a lack of contextual evidence and any diagnostic features it is not possible to date this object any more closely.
