UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT

Unique ID: WILT-B72C77

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A copper alloy unidentified object probably dating to the period AD 410-1700. The object comprises a sub-circular disc which is pierced through the centre. The edges of the disc appear to be damaged. The piercing is encircled by two incised lines. Around the central circular lines, there are four circles evenly spaced with an incised circle around each and with the centres hollowed out. In the field surrounding the four circles, are randomly punched dots. The back has evidence of the central piercing and other punched dots, although these do not seem to align with the four outer cirles on the front and they are more numerous. The patina of the object is dark green.
