Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Four sheet copper alloy rivets, c.1300 - c.1700:

- three "paper-clip" rivets, 12.5 x 9mm, 15.5 x 11.5mm and 23 x 12.5mm. Such objects were most commonly used for the repair of metal vessels. Most are likely to date to the medieval or post-medieval period, but some are earlier, such as examples from Late Saxon contexts at Flixborough (Rogers, N. in Evans and Loveluck 2009, 115-7).

- unused rivet or nail of rolled sheet, length 29.5mm, head diameter c.9mm.
