Object type: TANKARD
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper alloy tankard handle of probable later Iron Age or very early Roman date (c. 150 BC - 100 AD). The handle has an openwork design that is similar to that seen on several tankards and can be paralleled against the design seen on mirror handles. The handle is fragmentary consisting of the mid-section / handle only; the breaks on the upper and lower edges are old and patinated suggesting damage in antiquity. In plan the handle is irregular being broadly sub-rectangular; in profile it is bowed with an even (elegant) curve; the cross section is irregular. The upper…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper-alloy linch pin terminal of later Iron Age or early Roman date, -150 BC - AD 150. The linch pin terminal is a tapered cylindrical shape being circular in cross section - in broad terms it can be described as 'vase' shaped. The base of the terminal is a disc that supports the body of the terminal on its upper face while its lower face reveals the corroded remains of the copper alloy projection being broken flush to the base. Despite the corrosion, it is clear that the shaft was oval in section rather than square or rectangular. The body of terminal tapers in a …

Cast copper alloy votive model probably of a miniature wheel dated to the Late Bronze Age or Early - Middle Iron Age (1000-200 BC). The wheel is broadly sub-circular in plan with a drilled and filed internal division forming four radiating spokes. The rim of the wheel is oval in cross section; however, it varies in thickness around its circumference. This variation is accentuated by areas of adhering iron rich soil / iron pan from the wetland burial environment. The spokes merge with the centre of the inner edge of the wheel. Each of the four spokes is circular and arranged evenly aro…

A cast copper alloy fob, hanger, or dangler of late Iron Age (pre-Roman) date (100BC - AD 80). The fob is incomplete being broken across the external outer frame and also the projecting shank extending from the centre of the reverse; these breaks are old and patinated and the surfaces are unworn.

A silver Armorican stater of the Coriosolitae (Type II) dated to around 56 BC Reference: ABC 70 Images of the coin were sent to Dr Philip de Jeresey who writes: This is an Armorican type stater and it is in fact precisely the same type as the coin illustrated as ABC 70. It's a stater of the Coriosolitae, the final type in the series (rather confusingly known as class II), generally dated to c.56 BC. It has been suggested that this was a confederal Armorican issue, struck by the Coriosolitae on behalf of the coalition of Armorican tribes fighting Caesar. They are the commonest Armori…

Cast copper alloy end-looped cosmetic mortar (also known as cosmetic or woad grinder) of late Iron Age to early Roman date circa 100 BC - 200 AD. The cosmetic mortar is heavily eroded but has a plain slightly bowed profile with a loop at one end and a plain tapered / pointed terminal at the other. The loop is cast in one piece - there are traces of a grove around the lower edge giving it the impression of being wrought rather than cast. The mortar is sub-triangular (U shaped) in cross section. It has an elliptical or sub-oval plan with both end terminals tapering to blunt points. On t…
