Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An Early Medieval (Anglo Saxon) iron socketed spear head (9th century). The blade is leaf-shaped (tear-drop) and the cross-section is lozenge-shaped with the central mid-rib tapering to the cutting edges. The spear head has a split socket with possibly two nail holes along the edge, although the corrosion makes it difficult to be certain. Dalton (1923:91) writes that the spear was the most common weapons of the Anglo Saxons and in the pagan period it is easily recognised by the split socket, which was beaten out on a mandril but not welded along the edges.

Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A middle Bronze Age copper alloy tip fragment from a spear head (1500-1150BC). There is a pronounced mid rib extending to the tip with the blade wings projecting from each side. There is a rough irregular break across the width. The break reveals that the spear head is solid with no trace of the socket. Jon Cotton suggests this is probably the tip from a side-looped socketed spear head. Dimensions: length: 73.84mm; width: 20.02mm; thickness: 9.02mm; weight: 16.69g. Identification by Jon Cotton, Senior Prehistoric Curator Museum of London.

Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
A gold object, probably a distorted finger ring of uncertain date. Curator's report: A strip of bright yellow pitted gold that has been bent six times forming three rough (un-unintended) loops. The edges of some sections appear to have been worked, being slightly rounded. Discussion: This strip of gold is long enough to have fitted round a small finger but there are no diagnostic features that could provide a date. Conclusion: Due to the undiagnostic nature of the find it can not be securely dated to pre-1708 and as such falls outside the provisions of…

Object type: POWDER FLASK
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Post Medieval lead alloy powder flask cap or measure, slightly squashed (AD1642-1649). The object is cup-like in appearance with an open mouth. At the base extend two C-shaped loops, which would have fastened to the bandolier (belt) with a cord. The flask itself would have contained enough explosive for a complete charge for the weapon. A series of these holders would have been attached to the bandolier. Parallels suggest that this object dates from the period of the English Civil Wars (1642 – 49). For information on small arms accessories of the seventeenth century, see: Court…

Object type: TILE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Medieval fragment of a decorated floor tile (mid 13th century). Originally the floor tile would have been square but now approximately 75% is missing. The upper surface is decorated with a two-colour design picked out in white slip with a lead-glaze. The pattern is very similar to no 1833 from Byland Abbey, Yorkshire dated to the mid 13th century, made in the tilery at Old Byland, Yorkshire (Eames 1980: volume 2). The pattern on the tile suggests the tile was intended to be laid to form a lozenge shape. There is a curved linear arch with a trefoil in the top corner above the…

Object type: WHISTLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Post Medieval pottery base from a German Whiteware: Polychrome bird whistle (1575-1625). The fabric is fine buff with a glossy brown, green and yellow lead-glaze, usually with the brown glaze representing the wings and eyes which are further accentuated by scored outlines. Only the base of the whistle is present in this case but originally the body of the bird would have been in the form of a small splayed footed pot with the head and whistle-tube applied. The whistle outlet is through the top of the head. Dimensions: diameter: 24.10mm; weight: 6.55g. Reference: Hurst, J…
