Part of a medieval lead Papal bulla, possibly of Boniface IX (1389-1404) converted into a pendant or bead. An sub-oval section has been cut out of the much larger circular bulla and pierced top and bottom to allow it to be suspended. In cross section it is now slightly curved with the centre raised above the sides. On the obverse the sub-oval has been cut around the head of Saint Paul and the rest of the design and inscription is missing. St. Paul is looking right, he is depicted with straight hair and a long pointed beard. The head is contained within a beaded border, possibly repres…

A rectangular object, probably a mount, cast in copper alloy of probable late early-medieval date (c. 9th/10th century AD). Broadly rectangular, it has slightly concave long sides. Both short ends are slightly ragged with irregular protrusions, it is unclear whether these are unfinished or old breaks. It is probable the object previously continued below the lower edge where there is the stub of a projection which is narrower than the existing piece. A zoomorphic design fills the field which is bordered all around with a plain raised border. Made in sunken low relief the device is a…

A large fragment of a decorated early medieval cast lead alloy disc brooch dating from the second half of the 10th century. Jane Kershaw reports: The brooch carries a variant of the Scandinavian Terslev motif classified by Sunhild Kleingärtner as 'Type 3', with 4 volutes bound by an inner circle, and a central lozenge-shaped field (2007, 62-3, Abb. 10). It differs from the prototype motif in that the ring has additional triangular ring-knot extensions, which fill the space between each volute. In addition, the brooch carries integrally cast pellets both in the central field and…

Small cast lead Viking weight which is rectangular in plan dating from 800 to 1100 AD. The upper surface has been decorated with a thin plate of copper alloy moulding which has a bright green patina. There is moulding on the top of the copper plate which has been gilded, the remains of which can be seen in the grooves of the decoration. The design is of zoomorphic interlacing animals. It could be Anglo-Saxon from around the 6th century or Hiberno-Scandinavian dated to the late 8th/early 9th century likely to have been re-used from a mount. There are several Viking weights known that h…

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Surrey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An unusual medieval cast copper alloy D-shaped buckle with a narrow offset bar. The buckle is flat with a rounded outer edge which is decorated with sinuous double punched lines and with groups of pits in the field outside. There are four vertical panels on the inner edge of the outer frame, one pair acting as the pin seat. The sheet metal pin is made from a different metal. The projecting vertical panels are difficult to parallel as is the extensive use of pucned decoration. A 14th century date seems reasonable.

A very worn, shield-shaped, cast copper alloy pendant decorated with what appears to be a cockerel walking left. The body of the bird is blue with white spots, white tail feathers, a red eye, and a blue wattle. Bifurcating branches in green appear both above and below the bird. The apex loop is broken. The use of white enamel within a field of blue in particular suggest that this may a Limoges product of the 13th century. No gilding is visible but it was probably originally present.

Fragment of an Early Medieval Irish penannular brooch, silver gilt bearing incised decoration consisting of double spiral, a zone of double chevron ribs set within two ribs and a number of gently rounded plain panels. The back is flat and undecorated. This fragment is best paralleled by two plates fixed to the back of the brooch from Killamery, Co. Kilkenny (Youngs, 1989, 99-100, Catalogue Number 80). These show the some decorative element as seen on the Torksey find, the spiral (which is only a single ring on Killamery) the herring-bone like chevron and the plain areas. The Killamery…

Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A cast copper alloy Limoges enamel mount in the form of a slightly domed pointed quatrefoil, with a hollow back and a projecting loop at each internal corner. The mount is decorated with five spiralling buds infilled with yellow, green, red, white and light blue enamel, each against a blue field. The enamel is generally very well preserved, but no gilding is visible and may have been absent. The mount is the product of the Limoges enamel factories in southern France. The mount may have been attached to a casket using small rivets fixed through the projecting loops.

Near complete copper-alloy zoomorphic mount of Medieval date. The mount consists of a three-dimensional probable lion walking on all four legs. The feet are set onto a sub-oval base and beneath this the mount tapers downwards and inwards to form a hollowed sub-conical base, the bottom of which is broken and incomplete. The tubular hollow within this has signs of ferrous corrosion indicating that the lion was mounted onto something made of iron or attached to something else via the use of an iron prong or rivet set into this opening. This conical base has three vertical grooves incised…
