A copper-alloy artefact of uncertain date and purpose. The piece is roughly pointed-oval in plan, with a pair of opposing, hooked projections approximately one third of the way along its sides.

A number of concentric steps surround the base of the central projection, and only the top and bottom points of the piece are plain. A circular depression is located at the centre of the otherwise flat u…

A fragment of a Late Medieval copper-alloy strap-end or buckle. The surviving piece represents part of the distal end of a strap slot. This slot, made from an upper plate and back plate, is of rectangular section, narrowing towards the distal end.

The upper surfaces of the piece retain much of their original gilding. Length: 16.2mm; width: 22mm; thickness: 5.2mm; weight: 1.53g. Socketed strap-ends and buckles of this form date from the Late Mediev…

Object type: THIMBLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A copper-alloy thimble of probable Late Medieval to early post-Medieval date. The thickness of the thimble suggests it has been cast. The diameter gradually decreases towards the top before angling inwards more sharply in the upper third. The closely-spaced rows of circular punchmarks cover all but a basal band, where a groove extends parallel to the bottom edge. Height: 20mm; diameter: 19mm; weight: 5g. E. F. Holmes suggests that 'heavy duty' thimbles of this form date from the 15th to mid 16th centuries (1988: 1).
