Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Post Medieval copper alloy finger-ring, dating to the 17th century. The object is formed of a single rectangular piece of copper alloy which has been bent to form a ring and soldered at the ends. The decoration on the outer face of the ring is formed by both punching and engraving. The punched decoration may have held enamel or some other setting. This particular example has been squashed so that it is no longer circular. It has a mid-brown pattination across the surface. The decoration consists of repeated motifs that are formed of three irregular shapes that appear to form a twist…

Object type: HARNESS FITTING
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An Anglo-Scandinavian double-ended harness link of 11th century date. The fitting has a central plate with a large circular hole. Both attachment loops are broken but the better surviving loop clearly had three projecting rounded knobs which are typical of harness fittings of this period. On the upper part of the central plate is a projecting animal head of a form which is commonly found on stirruo-strap mounts of Class B. There may be additional cast decoration but if so this is now too worn to interpret. The precise function of this link is difficult to interpret. The large hole is …

Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
Complete cast copper alloy palstave dating from the late Middle Bronze Age probably dating from c. 1500-1150BC. It was part of the Acton Park or Taunton metalwork assemblage of the later Middle Bronze Age and is very probably of Type Wantage (Schmidt and Burgess 1981, 133-134, nos. 801-808. The palstave survives complete but with damaged surfaces and an abraded cutting edge. However, it is otherwise in good condition. The blade appears bevelled and it is very likely that it was originally much wider and larger; with wear and resharpening it had lost its original size and shape. It disp…

Object type: SCABBARD
Broad period: ROMAN
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Copper alloy with gilding possible Scabbard Chape or Fitting. Cast sub-rectangular object, hollow, and now open at both its ends, with sides c.1.5mm thick all round. The sides at one end are now splayed outwards, which, given the thickness of the material, would have required significant force. Decoration, apparently identical on both sides, comprises pairs of horizontally incised lines above and below a fixing hole of diameter 1.5mm, and relict traces of gilding overall. Suggested date: possibly Roman, 43-410. Length: 32.4mm, Width: 28.3mm, Thickness (overall): 6.3mm, Weight: 15.78gms.

Copper alloy possible Sword Hanger fragment. Cast bar of round section which tapers slightly from its broken hollow end which passes through a separate collar of diameter 10.2mm, towards an elongated and facetted terminal surmounting its hooked end. The facets of the terminal bear file marks from finishing. A more prosaic and recent identification, as kindly offered by the finder, might be a coat hook, though traces of finishing on the facetted terminal would not survive the wear to be expected from long use. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, possibly 1500-1650, Length (as found): 70.4mm…

A fragment of a copper alloy Roman finger ring, probably dating from AD 100 - 200. The remaining portion consists of the shoulders and bezel; the hoop has broken away and is missing.
