Record ID: BH-002B2D
Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Central Bedfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Medieval copper-alloy hooked strap fitting. The attachment end of the fitting consists of a rectangular plate with convex upper surface and a flat underside, from which projects a pair of integrally cast, circular-sectioned rivets with flattened distal ends. A transverse ridge marks the transition between the base of the plate and the forward hook, the latter of which is of flattened-oval section, tapering towards its distal end, where there is a much wider, rectangular, flat-sectioned terminal. Traces of gilding survive on the upper surface of the heavily corroded object. Length: …

Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Central Bedfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A cast lead-alloy mount with gilded surface, dating from the Late Medieval period. The cast piece takes the form of a stylised sun with six radiating, wavy rays. These rays are of triangular section, tapering towards their distal ends. A suboval perforation is located just off-centre. Traces of gilding survive on the upper surface. Diameter: 35.6mm; thickness: 3.9mm. Weight: 10.93g. Five similar pieces are illustrated by Mitchiner, who suggests they are Yorkist sun motifs (1986: 207). Stylistically similar mounts, albeit with crescentic surrounds, were found in Salisbury, where they…

The point of one of these spikes has been curved. Diameter: 42.4mm; thickness: 3.2mm. Weight: 11.08g.

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A cast copper-alloy pin from an Early-Medieval single-loop buckle. The pin is of 'shield-on-tongue' type; however, the integrally cast, flat-sectioned plate actually resembles a violin. The back of this plate is semicircular; a narrower, concave-sided projection extends towards the shaft, the inner end having a vertical groove in each of its two outer side faces. The shaft is generally of semicircular section, but there is a flattened area on top. The sides of the shaft converge towards the downward-curving tip, the flat underside of which slopes upwards and inwards. A casting seam ex…

Record ID: BH-FFC487
Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Central Bedfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A fragment of a Middle to Late Bronze Age socketed spearhead. The piece represents the tip of the spearhead, the remainder having been lost in antiquity. A conical void extends almost to the tip, creating a pronounced mid-rib on both sides. Either side of this mid-rib, the thickness tapers towards the straight edges. Patches of brownish-green patination survive, but most of the surface is heavily corroded. Length: 50.4mm; width: 19.5mm; thickness: 9.3mm. Weight: 12.19g.

Object type: HOOKED TAG
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Central Bedfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A post-Medieval copper-alloy hooked tag. The object comprises an oval plate with ropework border, surmounted by an inverted-trapezoidal hanger, with a rearward hook at the base. The design on the plate takes the form of a relief-moulded, draped female bust, which faces towards the hook. The hanger and hook are both of trapezoidal section, the latter tapering to a damaged point. Length: 35.4mm; width: 15.7mm; thickness: 2.8mm. Weight: 2.64g. A parallel for this hooked tag is illustrated and described by Brian Read (2008: 94, no. 335). Similar examples on the PAS database, albeit with…

Object type: COIN WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Central Bedfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A post-Medieval copper-alloy coin weight. The weight is cuboidal and double-sided, with the same design on both faces, aligned at 180 degrees to one another. This design comprises four incuse annulets, one located towards each of the two top corners, the other two one third of the way up from the base, with a stamped lion passant below. Length: 16mm; width: 14.3mm; thickness: 4.1mm. Weight: 5.62g. It is uncertain as to which coin this weight has been produced for; however, the style suggests a date of c. 1600 - c. 1800.

A post-Medieval copper-alloy strap mount. The head of the flat-sectioned mount consists of a roughly drop-shaped portion which has a rounded lobe at the centre of its base and is surmounted by a trilobate extension. A relief-moulded pattern of ridges and beaded lines decorates the upper surface, extending into a pair of swirls which make up the right- and left-hand sides of the apex. Traces of gilding remain on the upper surface. Two circular-sectioned rivets protrude from the reverse, one set above the other. The uppermost rivet projects straight backwards; the lower one has been ben…

Object type: DIE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A lead-alloy die, probably dating from the post-Medieval period. The cuboidal die is crudely made, with irregular edges. The numbers are denoted by incuse pellets of various depths and diameters. A conventional layout has been adopted, whereby the opposing faces add up to seven. Possible traces of pink paint adhere to the corroded surfaces. Length: 17.8mm; height: 17.3mm; width: 16.2mm. Weight: 36.34g. According to Geoff Egan, the regular layout is typical of post-Medieval dice (1997: 1).

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Medieval copper-alloy sexfoil mount The mount, which has been stamped from a piece of sheet, has a subconical central portion, at the point of which is a rivet hole. Six grooves radiate outwards from this hole, dividing the surface into six equal-sized petals, each of which terminates in a rounded end with scalloped edging. Diameter: 14.7mm; height: 5.9mm.

County: Milton Keynes
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Medieval copper-alloy single-loop buckle. The frame is trapezoidal, its rectangular-sectioned sides flaring towards the expanded outer side. A moulded pin rest occupies the centre of this outer side, flanked by two transverse grooves which extend to the underside, where they converge, crossing over at their distal ends. The subrectangular plate has been folded double around the circular-sectioned axis bar; this plate is straight-sided and its width decreases towards the non-frame end, where the two sides are held together by a copper-alloy rivet. At the frame end, the now-missing pi…

A badly distorted copper-alloy artefact, Medieval in date and probably representing either an open-frame brooch or an incomplete frame from a single-loop buckle. The piece takes the form of a strip with a series of moulded subcuboidal turrets along its upper surface. These turrets alternate between two different heights, each of the taller ones having an incuse pellet at the centre of its upper surface. The vertical sides of the piece are flat, as is the underside. A groove extends longitudinally on the outer surface, located a short distance below the bases of the aforementioned turr…
