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.

County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A cast lead plaque commemorating Napoleon Bonaparte.

The bottom of the plaque is adorned with fleurs running in a horizontal line, whilst the top has a line of larger trefoils, perhaps also intended to be fleur de lis. The left of the plaque is decorated with an eagle with wings outstretched, perched on a rectangular base. To the right of this is a depiction of Napoleon on ho…

Object type: SKILLET

County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
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.

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…

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…
