A probable flint knapped late Neolithic to early Bronze Age spearhead, c. 2500-1500 BC. The spearhead is sub-leaf shaped, with working all over both faces. Instead of a pointed oval shape as is common to these types, the proximal end has been knapped blunt and straight across, perhaps shaped to fit into a haft. The distal end tapers to a sharp point. One mesial edge has been retouched from the dorsal face with subparallel retouch, while the other mesial edge seems to have been retouched in similar fashion from the ventral face. The quality of the light-dark grey flint material is s…

Overall it measures approximately 82.4 mm long (with damaged arms), no indication as to original width and weighs 30.9 grams. The rowel box is split in half to fit the rowel and one of these small split arms has been bent out of shape as it connects to the n…

Object type: TOKEN

A Medieval or Post Medieval cast lead alloy uniface token, c. 1250-1800 AD. Powell Type 30.

The other side is plain and undecorated. The token has a dark grey colour. Tokens had a wide variety of uses and were easy to manufacture; they are therefore difficult to date specifically outside of secure archaeological contexts. Tokens with simplistic designs are given a general date of c. 12…

Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An incomplete Romano-British cast copper-alloy finger ring with inlaid enamel, dating from the second to third centuries AD. Only the bezel remains with a small thin section on either side where the shoulders would begin. In spite of severe surface erosion on the bezel face, a horizontal raised copper-alloy wavy line is visible, which separates an upper horizontal recessed portion from a similar lower portion. Upon first glance the wavy line seems to be symmetrical, but there is further minute detail underneath a portion of the line, perhaps suggesting that this could be a horse simil…

Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A fragment of a cast copper-alloy Roman finger ring of snake type.

The ring is decorated with a slightly domed 'head' followed by two horizontal incised lines. Further decoration is obscured due to wear, but there seems to be a two incised lines following the inner and outer perimeter of the ring. It is likely that this domed decoration and incised lines was meant to imitate the head of a snake, a popular motif during this …
