Object type: RIVET
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Medieval or post-medieval sheet copper alloy folded rivet, probably a repair for a copper-alloy vessel. The rivet is made from a roughly lozenge-shaped piece of sheet the ends of which have been folded in to meet in the middle and then back out. There are traces of sooting on both faces. It measures 22.6mm by 17.3mm, is 2.9mm thick and weighs 2.91g. A similar rivet is illustrated in Egan's 'Medieval Household' (1998, p. 176, no. 489) and in Egan (2005,101) Fig: 87 where he suggests a long date range of c. AD 1100-1700.

Medieval cast copper alloy pendant loop in a quartrefoil shape. The loop has a short, straight top edge which is thinned relative to the rest and forms the top of one leaf of the quartefoil.

Cast lead vessel repair (pot mend). It is roughly oval in plan and H-shaped in section with two irregularly shaped outer sides, one much larger than the other, joined by a smaller central section. The smaller side is slightly convex and was probably on the outerside of the pot. In the 1.4-1.8mm wide groove created between the outer sides there is a patch of material which appears to be iron pan rather than the original pot, unless the pot was of iron which has completely rusted leaving no metallic material remaining. It is 32.5 mm by 27.4mm, 9.2 mm thick and weighs 30.80 g. Pot men…

Post Medieval cast lead-tin alloy (pewter) circular double faced token of Powell type 2 / 21 (c. AD 1500-1800). The token is broken with c.40% missing and the edges laminated, suggesting a high tin content which also fits with the low weight of the piece.. On one face is a raised design, slightly unclear but probably the initials HP or HB retrograde. On the other is a raised design of a four spoked wheel, four straight lines radiate out from a central ring and dot hub to meet a circular rim all within an outer plain line border.

Medieval to Post Medieval cast lead-alloy circular unifaced token of Powell type 3 (c. AD 1250-1800). The token has a raised design of seven straight lines radiating from the centre to the edge. The back is plain. various indents and flaws in casting such as airbubbles obscure details of the design but the general form appears clear. It measures 18.5 mm in diameter, 4.5mm thick and weighs 7.49 grams. Lead tokens had a wide variety of uses and were made locally; they are therefore hard to date precisely and could be Medieval or Post Medieval in date.

Lead alloy disc, probably the central rivet from a two-part cloth seal or possibly a token. The piece is slightly oval in plan and on the edge there appears to be a suggestion of a thin flat disc, the remains of the back disc, and a thicker squashed rivet but the details are unclear and it could be a mis-cast token. The back is plain. On the front is a raised design of a central vertical, the lower end of which curves to the right; the vertical is flanked by the initials G/B or G/D. The top end of the vertical appears to split and may run off the top of the piece, again suggesting a …

Medieval or post-medieval plain cast copper-alloy double-loop buckle frame. The frame has one surviving oval loop with the stubs of the second, the rest is lost to old breaks. The remaining loop has a flat back and inner edge and angled outer edge. It is badly corroded and varies in width around the loop but this appears to be due to corrosion rather than original. The strap bar is narrowed with a triangular cross-section. The pin is missing. It is 13.8mm long, 18.6mm wide and 2.5mm thick, it weighs 0.85 grams. It is likely that simple forms like this were in use by c.1350 (Egan an…
