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

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…

County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An incomplete cast lead pilgrim's ampulla of medieval date. Length 29.71 mm; width 31.53 mm; thickness 7.45 mm; weight 20 grams. The ampulla was originally hollow in order to contain holy water from a shrine, but is now broken with the sides pushed inwards. It is broken just below where original suspension loops are likely to have been located, and tapers towards a rounded base. One side is decorated with a scallop shell design, a common feature on pilgrim's ampullae. The scallop shell was originally associated with St James of Santiago de Compostela, but during the medieva…

A cast copper-alloy medieval buckle frame. The buckle frame is D-shaped, terminating in a collared knop. It is flat on the reverse and rounded on the front.

Object type: STUD
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A cast copper-alloy stud of early post-medieval date. The stud has a circular head with decoration in relief. This decoration takes the form of a central raised dot surrounded by eight further dots, giving the appearance of a flower. From the bottom of the stud protrudes a square sectioned shank. The reverse of the head is flat and undecorated. It meaures 11.21 mm long and 10.83 mm wide across the head and is 13.16 mm long including the head and the shank. It weighs 1.3 grams. A similar, but more sophisticated example is recorded on the PAS database as SF-2D65A2. That example, identif…

Object type: SWORD BELT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A copper-alloy cast S-shaped belt fitting. The belt fitting has moulded decoration in relief although it is very worn. Both ends terminate in a zoomorphic head, probably intended to represent either birds or snakes. There are two moulded ribs in the centre. Length 40.84 mm; width 23.92 mm; thickness 6.06 mm; weight 10.4. These fittings are often regarded as being from 16th to 17th century sword belts, and certainly such fittings are well known. However, objects with a similar function and design continued to be used into the modern period and differentiating between them is not always…

County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A cast copper-alloy buckle frame from a post-medieval shoe buckle. The frame is ornately decorated with moulded decoration on each edge of the frame.

Object type: DRESS HOOK
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A copper-alloy fastener (probable dress hook) of probable late medieval or post-medieval date. The body of the fastener is acorn shaped and has several circular indentations on the front. The reverse has an integral attachment stud. The top of the object terminates in a projecting loop, probably an eye for linking with a hooked fastener. No exact parallels have yet been found, but it is likely to date from the 15th to 17th century AD. Length 19.95 mm; width 9.79 mm; thickness 2.12 mm; weight 1.4 grams.
