A cast copper-alloy sub-cylindrical object, possibly a leg from a post-medieval tripod skillet. The object is clearly broken at its widest end and tapers to a point at the other end. Although sub-cylindrical, it is slightly lozengiform in section and one side is rounded whilst the other has a slight ridge. The object measures 72.2 mm long, 21.4 mm wide (tapering to 10 mm), 17.5 mm thick and weighs 78.5 grams. Although it is suggested here that the object may be a skillet leg, it is important to note that no parallel has been found, and the legs from tripod skillets are usually more de…

A cast copper alloy strap end spacer fragment. Only the terminal and two short lengths of the spacer 'arms' remain. The terminal is moulded a knop with a collar.

Object type: BROOCH
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
A broken copper-alloy Roman Polden Hill brooch. The brooch is missing its lower bow and foot. The pin is missing but the sprung mechanism remains in the wings. The wings are semi-cylindrical and have the pierced circular end plates that are characteristic of brooches of this type. There is a rear facing hook above the wings at the top of the bow which held the spring in place. Above each wing, either side of the top of the bow, there are moulded plates, also characteristic of this brooch type. The remains of the brooch measure 29.25 mm long, 19 mm wide across the wings, 16.1 mm thick …

Object type: AMPULLA
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A worn and damaged lead pilgrim's ampulla of scallop shell design. The ampulla is sub-circular and appears to be missing its top. Much of the back also seems to be missing, and it is predominantly only the front face which survies. No handles remain on either side of the ampulla, and it does not appear ever to have had any. Given that the scallop shell design was a ubiquitous symbol associated with pilgrimage generally, the presence of the design on this example does not assist in the identification of the shrine from which the ampulla came. It measures 45.4 mm long, 44.9 mm wide, 4.7…

Object type: DRESS HOOK
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A probable post-medieval hooked tag (dress hook). The copper-alloy tag is ovoid in shape with an oval attachment loop at the broadest end. It tapers towards a hook at the other end, curving towards the back of the object, though the hook is broken and missing. The front is adorned with elaborate cast decoration depicting a central figure surrounded with curvilinear floral patterns. The rear is undecorated and plain. No parallels have yet been found, but based upon the decorative style the tag is likely to date from the 17th to 18th centuries in date. It measures 46.8 mm long, 25.6 mm …

Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A probable lead token of medieval or post-medieval date. The object is circular and undecorated on one side, but on the other has a raised border running around its circumference and a second raised circle in the centre, within which there is a quatrefoil of connected pellets with a pellet in centre.

It measures 33.1 mm in diameter, 3.1 mm thick and weighs 13 grams.

Object type: DAGGER
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A copper-alloy dagger quillon of medieval date. The quillon is lozenge shaped with four faceted edges, tapering towards the terminals. Each end terminates in a multi-faceted knop. The centre of the quillon has a sub-oval aperture through which the tang of the blade would originally have passed. The quillon has a grey patina in the centre which differs from the greener patina at either end, indicating that this would once have been covered, perhaps by leather which would have helped secure the tang in place. The quillon is slightly concaved on one side, and slightly convex on the other…

A cast copper alloy weight. The weight is circular in plan. The upper surface has a lipped rim and two fine low-relief concentric rings in the centre. Within the concentric rings is a low-relief conical. At the 8 o'clock position there is an ewer, the Founders Company mark which shows they have verified this weight. At the 11 o'clock position there is the royal cipher, a 'C' which is surmounted by a crown. The 'C' represents Charles I. At 12 0'clock there is a dagger, which represents the sword of St. Paul.

Object type: INGOT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
Ref.: 2010 T335 (Rec. no. 7168) Surface metal analysis conducted at the British Museum indicated an approximate silver content for the ingot of 94%, the remainder being copper with a trace of lead and gold. This is likely to be a slight overestimate of the silver content of the core metal, as corrosion alters the composition of the surface of the ingot by preferentially leaching out the copper; the ingot weighs 10.23 grams. The ingot appears to have been cast in an open mould as a typical cigar shape with rounded ends and then the upper and lower surfaces were hammered flat, giving it …

County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
The foot and leg of a lead-alloy figurine, in two parts, broken at the ankle. From what remains of the piece, it appears to be in classical style, the foot and leg both bare. The features of the toes and ankle are refined and clearly visible on the foot, the calf, knee and thigh well executed on the leg. Both pieces are solid in section, apart from the top of the leg at the break, where it is hollow. The object has a grey to green external patina and a cream patina at the breaks. The foot sits on a small plate of lead alloy at the front of the foot, apparently soldered, not integrally…

Object type: HARNESS FITTING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Solihull
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A copper-alloy mount, probably medieval in date and quite likely a harness fitting. The mount measures 58.77 mm long. It gradually flares in width from 6.48 mm to 9.5 mm. At the thinner end it terminates in a slight knop. At the wider end it flares suddenly to 18.37 mm, at the same time becoming thinner, almost spatulate. However, it is broken here and it is difficult to determine the extent to which it flared. Traces of gilding are visible on this thin, flared section. The mount has two attachment holes, one at the top at the thinnest end, another in the middle, 23.1 mm from the firs…
