Record ID: BH-287094
Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Medieval copper-alloy folding strap clasp. A piece of folded sheet copper-alloy has been attached to the vertical outer side of the trapezoidal frame. A larger piece of sheet (now damaged) has been folded around the inner bar of the frame, creating a plate of two equal-sized, subrectangular sides, with a central strap slot between. A single copper-alloy rivet, located at the non-frame end, joins the two sides of the plate together. Both sides of this plate have been folded back towards the underside of the frame. Length: 15.5mm; width: 12.9mm; thickness: 5.8mm. Weight: 1.93g. …

Object type: SEAL BOX
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
The lower half of a Roman copper-alloy seal box. A lozenge-shaped arrangement of four circular perforations occupies the central area of the flat-sectioned base, which is now distorted but would originally have been oval. The perpendicular side has two opposing cut-outs, located halfway along its length, through which the binding cord would have been passed. A small aperture, situated adjacent to one of these cut-outs, is likely to be a casting flaw. The hinge comprises two rounded lugs, separated from one another by a gap, each with a circular perforation for the now-missing bar. …

Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A largely complete Roman ceramic vessel. The vessel is of flattened-subglobular form, with a flat base and a straight rim with angled inner surface. A circular-sectioned spout (probably foreshortened) angles upwards from a short distance below the rim. The fabric is yellowish-grey and heavily sand tempered. There is a small amount of damage to the body of the vessel. A mussel shell which survives within the pot is likely to be the result of the depositional conditions - the object was recovered from material dredged from the river Ouse - rather than being a Roman insertion. Off-whi…

Object type: BATTLEAXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
A ground stone battle axe, probably of Scandinavian origin and dating from the Neolithic period. The axe, which survives intact, is of flattened-oval section, tapering to a wedge-shaped, downward-curving blade. The cylindrical socket is located close to the butt of the axe, where there is a rearward, hammer-like projection of circular section. The tool has been made from a medium-textured grey stone with a strand-like structure. Orangey-brown deposits on the surface of the implement are probably the result of the tool having been deposited in a wet environment. Length: 147.8mm; width…

Record ID: BH-83ACED
Object type: PURSE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Part of a Medieval to post-Medieval copper-alloy purse frame. The piece is of 'V-shaped' section, broken at both ends, and has been wound into a spiral. The incuse word 'GLOR[IA]' can be seen on the outer surface, with a repeating pattern of spirals to its left. A single sewing hole punctuates the otherwise plain inner face. Length: 60.1mm; width: 7.5mm. Weight: 10.7g. This is an example of part of a London Museum Type A purse frame (see Ward Perkins 1967: 162 - 167). The purpose of the deliberate adaptation into a spiral is uncertain; however, it seems likely that the piece …

Record ID: BH-837BE7
Object type: BELL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A lead-alloy bell, dating form the Medieval to post-Medieval periods. The heavily damaged chamber has been cast in two pieces and would originally have been roughly spherical. The rounded loop is on the same alignment as a central casting seam, as is the dumbbell-shaped aperture at the base. Width: 16.5mm; height: 19.5mm; weight: 3.27g. The size of this bell suggests it was probably for use in falconry. A close parallel is PAS record BH-465137, from Shillington, Bedfordshire.

Object type: BELL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Medieval to early post-Medieval copper-alloy bell. The damaged bell chamber is of flattened-spherical form and has a central join at which the two sheet-metal halves meet. On one side, two irregular perforations flank a damaged central area, at which point the loop would have been attached. The other half of the bell is badly dented and the object as a whole is corroded. Diameter: 23.7mm; height: 19.7mm. Weight: 6.94g.

County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A copper-alloy single-loop buckle with integral plate, dating to the Medieval period. The frame is sub-trapezoidal, the converging sides extending smoothly into the plate, which terminates in a grooved scallop-shell design. The frame is of rectangular section; the plate has a convex upper surface and a flat underside. A corroded remnant of the iron pin survives, located within a perforation at the inner end of the plate. A circular-sectioned rivet projects downwards from the underside of the plate's scallop-shaped end. Traces of gilding remain on the upper surfaces of the piece. …

Object type: HARNESS RING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A copper-alloy ring, possibly from a harness and probably dating to the Roman period. The ring has a lozenge-shaped section, and is slightly irregular, with a damaged outer edge. The sloping inner surfaces display evidence of filing or wear. Diameter: 21mm; thickness: 3.1mm. Weight: 2.63g. Several similar rings were found in a hoard of late Iron Age to Early Roman metalwork at Camerton, Somerset (Jackson 1990: Pl. 14, nos. 147 - 162). The patination of this example is consistent with a Roman date.

Object type: HOOKED TAG
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Part of an early post-Medieval copper-alloy hooked tag. The upper surface of the circular plate is decorated with the image of a human head, executed in high relief, probably facing outwards, its details lost to corrosion and wear. The underside of this plate is concave. A remnant of the integrally cast hook projects upwards from above the top of the head. There is no trace of the hanger. Length: 16.9mm; width: 11.5mm; depth: 2.6mm. Weight: 0.8g. Similar hooked tags are illustrated and discussed by Brian Read (2008: 92 - 93). The recorder suggests a date of 16th to 17th centu…

Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A badly distorted Roman copper-alloy finger ring. This is an example of a 'snake-form' penannular finger ring. The hoop is of rectangular section, flaring into a pair of inward-facing snake heads. Both heads have a near-right-angled bend, which is a deliberate feature. There are possible traces of incised facial features. Width: 28.9mm; maximum height (terminals): 13.5mm; weight: 2.37g. Snake-form jewellery appears to have been introduced into Britain in the 1st century AD and continued to be used throughout much of the Roman period (Johns 1996: 44). A close parallel for this…
