County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A complete Medieval cast copper alloy Limoges style enameled reliquary or cross mount. The mount is anthropomorphic in form and decoration and depicts a head and robed body. The head is moulded in the round with raised upper band, possibly a tonsure, followed by flat forehead, two inlaid blue glass eyes, with traces of the nose, cheeks and chin. While the head protrudes outwards from the surface of the object, the rest of the body is thin and remains relatively flat to the surface, curving back severely at the end. The object would have originally sat flush with the surface of the …

A cast copper-alloy figural buckle, strap mount or related fitting, probably of Medieval date, c. 11th-12th centuries AD. The object depicts a figure of uncertain attribution, perhaps either a half man, half bird creature or even a stylistic angel, with an anthropomorphic head and a stylised 'winged' body with triangular tail. The head has one intact dark blue glass eye, with a prominent forehead, nose and chin. Whereas the head is moulded in the round, with a hollow concave reverse, the wings and tail are flat and styled simply with two sub-triangular wings forming a rough square …

An extremely worn Medieval silver cut short cross halfpenny of John or Henry III (1199-1272 AD). Mint of London; moneyer unknown. Probably North Class 6 or 7, issued between c. 1209-1242 AD. Cf. North 1994, Vol I, p. 222, nos. 974/1-980. There are two pelleted curls on the remaining side of the bust, closed and rounded 'C' and 'S' made by thicker crescents in 'hENRICVS'; however, due to information lost due to cutting in half and additional surface abrasion, a full identification is difficult. It is likely that this coin should be attributed to the latter portion of this period …

A Medieval silver long cross penny probably of Edward I, dated to 1280-1280 AD. Mint of Lincoln. North Class 3, probably c-d. Cf. North 1991, p. 28, nos. 1018 and 1019. Unusually, the coin is complete, including the outer circumferential beaded border. The reverse long cross has been struck in such a way that it has imprinted on the obverse, obscuring some of the detail of the obverse decoration and legend.

A damaged Medieval silver long cross farthing of Edwardian issue, probably of Edward I, 1301-1310 AD. Probably North Class 10. Cf. North 1991, Vol II, p. 34, no. 1058. It is possible that this could be a farthing of Edward III instead; however, due to old breaks on the circumference of the coin, it is uncertain whether the obverse legend included a six-point star. Additionally, the attributes on the obverse of flat bifoliate crown with no jewels, oval face, unbarred 'A' and reverse legend of 'CIVITAS LONDON' instead of other variations suggests that the above identification is …

An extremely worn and possibly double-struck Medieval silver penny of uncertain issuer. Mint of York, probably of Archiespiscopal issue. The penny has been pierced with a double hole from the reverse surface. Due to severe surface wear, a bend in the coin and partial double-striking of both faces, a full identification of this coin is impossible.

Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Medieval or Post Medieval uni-face cast lead alloy token. Powell Type 9. The token is discoidal and has a raised geometric lined grid design with pellets in the interstices on one face. Lead tokens had a wide variety of uses and were easy to manufacture; they are therefore difficult to date precisely outside of secure archaeological contexts. Those with simplistic designs seem to have been circulated for a long period of time and are given a date of c. 1250-1800 AD for this reason. Measurements: Diameter: 17.15mm, thickness: 2.2mm and weight:3.7g.

A very worn and clipped Medieval silver halfpenny of Richard II. Withers Type 1 (North Type 1b), issued between AD 1377-1399. Mint of London. Cf. North 1991 Vol II, p. 63, no. 1331(b). This coin type was determined by identifying certain features, such as Lombardic Ns and either nothing or possibly an annulet on the breast.

An extremely worn and clipped later Medieval silver long cross penny probably of Henry IV, Henry V, Henry VI. Probably Mint of York. The obverse bust has two unclear attributes near the crown, therefore, although the legend clearly begins with an 'h', the identity of the issuer is uncertain.

Object type: CHISEL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A small cast copper-alloy chisel of uncertain date, possibly Roman-Medieval. The chisel is roughly triangular in plan, ranging from sub-triangular to sub-rectangular in cross-section. The narrow end is flat and sub-rectangular and the wider blade-end is flat and sub-triangular. It has an even dark green patina in keeping with objects of this date in Sussex. However, due to insufficient diagnostic features, it is difficult to suggest a specific date for this object. The chisel measures 37.2 mm long, 7.15 mm wide, 4.9 mm thick and weighs 6.6 grams.

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Late Post Medieval rectangular double looped cast copper alloy buckle with drilled frame for a separate iron spindle. The spindle is now missing along with the pin/chape. The frame is plain with a distinct arch in profile suggesting it is from a shoe, knee or hat. The centre of the long sides are expanded downwards into an oval at the centre and drilled through the expansion for the spindle. It measures 40.3mm long by 33.2mm wide and 2.6mm thick. It weighs 6.23 grams. Parallels for this type of buckle can be seen in Whitehead, (2003) p104/105 which he dates from AD 1720 to 1790s.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A cast copper alloy double looped sub-annular buckle, with recessed narrowed strap bar. Some of the buckle plate remains but the pin is missing. The plate is formed from a bent plate, which loops around the strap bar. The bend has been recessed to allow the missing pin to sit there. The end of the plate is damaged with evidence of a broken rivet hole. The frame is uninterrupted; so therefore has no pin recess. The metal and buckle plate metal are a greenish-brown colour. The buckle measures 27mm long, 21.4mm wide, 1.8mm thick and weighs 3.53 grams.The plate measures 20.2mm long …

A copper-alloy nummus of the House of Constantine dating to the period AD 307-361. Probably PROVIDENTIAE AVGG or PROVIDENTIAE CAESS, depicting camp-gate with two towers and star above. Mint unknown. A large break in the coin corresponding to 10 o'clock to 2 o'clock on the obverse and severe surface wear has made a full identification of this coin difficult.
