Record ID: WMID-3F7CE4
Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A lead alloy weight, probably a trade weight. The weight is square and has a male bearded forward facing bust within a circle on the obverse. The reverse is plain. An inscription runs around the side of the bust although this is unclear. It appears to be retrograde and may read JAMES... raising the possibility that this is a mould rather than a weight, although this is currently uncertain. The weight measures 22.82 mm long and 22.23 mm wide. It is 3.65 mm thick and weighs 15 grams.

Object type: BOW BROOCH
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A fragment from a cast copper-alloy Roman bow brooch. Only the head survives and the brooch is in poor condition. The wings were open at the back to hold the pin mechanism and slight moulding above what remains of the wings suggests this may have been a Polden Hill brooch, although this is a little uncertain. The remains of an attachment lug for the spring is visible at the top of the bow. The bow does not appear to have been decorated. The brooch is likely to date to the late first to second centuries AD. It measures 15.47 mm long, 12.97 mm wide across the wings, 8.41 mm thick at the…

Object type: CANNON BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A cast iron cannon ball of probable post-medieval date. The cannon ball is in fairly good condition, though it suffers from some iron corrosion and the surface metal is flaking in places. The cannon ball has a diameter of 75.2 mm, suggesting it may have been shot from either a Minion or Falcon type of cannon, dating from the late 15th to 17th century. Such cannons were in use during the English Civil War, although whether this cannon ball is related to such activity is difficult to say.

Record ID: WMID-82A9C5
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An incomplete cast copper-alloy object of late Early Medieval, Anglo-Saxon date, probably dating to the tenth or eleventh century AD. At first glance, the object appears similar to a strap end. However, a damaged lug on the reverse of the object, and an area of damage on the opposite side where a second lug may also have been situated, suggest that this object had an alternative function. A moulded raised bar which runs horizontally across the front of the object also suggests that this is not a strap end, and it does not fit into any known type. The lugs on the reverse may very possi…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Two worked flints, both probably scrapers. One of the scrapers is largely cortical on the ventral face. There appears to be retouch along the right edge, probably allowing the flint to be used as a scraper. This flint measures 31.3 mm long, 26.25 mm wide, 9.4 mm thick and weighs 8 grams. The flint is an orange to brown in colour. The second flint may also be a small scraper. Retouch has been applied to several parts of the flint around the edges. It measures 18.6 mm in length, 11.1 mm wide, 4.8 mm thick and weighs 0.9 grams. It is an orange to dark brown in colour. The f…

Object type: CHAFING DISH
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A probable fragment from a projecting dish-support from a post-medieval chafing dish. The fragment is anthropomorphic in shape and style and is decorated on both sides with incised lines forming the hair, facial features and dress of a man. The execution is quite crude, although the design is the same on both sides. The fragment measures 40.1 mm long, 19.2 mm wide, 2.75 mm thick and weighs 9.7 grams. This support, along with two others, would probably have extended from the chafing dish much like the figure on a prow of a ship. The chafing dish would have been filled with cha…

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A lead plano-convex spindle whorl. The spindle whorl is 35.86 mm in diameter with a central perforation that is 7.3 mm in diameter. Both sides of the whorl are decorated with a line of circular dots in relief, each within a triangular border formed by raised lines which radiate from the central perforation. It has been noted that the weight of a spindle whorl is demonstrative of the thickness of yarn produced, with lighter spindle whorls (3 - 5 grams) being used for spinning cotton and the heavier ones (30 - 35 grams) for spinning wool (Margeson 1993, page 184). This example wei…
