A copper alloy possible linch pin terminal of Late Iron Age or Early Roman date. It is a socket which is three quarters round in section and tapers from 16.84mm wide to 10.97mm at the apex. A moulded groove filled with a row of beading decorates the rim at the wider end. At the closed end, the socket bends to the side and has a solid terminal which points to the side and is semicircular in section. The flat reverse is open as if there was a separate flat back plate. The socket contains iron corrosion and has red brown patina.The identification of this object is not certain, but it ha…

A cast copper-alloy Iron Age linch pin terminal, which is the foot of the pin. The socketed part of the foot is broken, leaving only a shallow concave area. This would have extended into a larger socket which would have held the iron pin, which has long since corroded away. The exterior of the socket tapers to the terminal, where it curves forward and expands into a flat circular plate. The flat surface is decorated with a central recessed cell for enamel, with two concentric rings recessed for enamel round it. These are divided by bands of raised metal. No traces of the enamel su…

A copper alloy and iron object, possibly a linch pin terminal dating from the late Iron Age. The object is a corroded core of iron, with a copper alloy casing surviving in the middle. The casing is circular in section and in plan is a pointed knop separated from a rounded, bun-shaped knop by groove or waisted area. A double collar below is flanked by similar grooves. The iron core may suugest that this is part of a linch pin terminal, though it is not the typical form. A similar object is SWYOR-5135A4. Alternatively, this object could have a much later date and be a furniture fitting…

A Late Iron Age or Early Roman linch pin foot fitting. The fitting is iron with a thin sheath of copper alloy covering the end. The end of the fitting is flared and slightly dished, rising in the centre to a small, rounded knob. The shaft of the fitting is circular and has broken off just behind the head. The copper sheathing has a dark brown patina. It is 18.4mm in diameter and 17.5mm long. It weighs 12.86gm. This example is a little smaller than others on the database. There is no close parallel on the database but similar examples are SUSS-89C1D7, BH-CE4A95 and a more complete and …

A dome shaped object with a copper alloy shell and an iron centre. The top of the dome has a circular groove round a raised boss. There is a small oval hole in the side of the dome too. The base is slightly hollow, mostly being filled with ferrous corrosion. This object is probably the decorative end of an iron lynch pin dating from the late Iron Age or Early Roman period. Other examples on the database include LIN-3BAC97 and NARC-37A496, but linch pins had much variation. The terminal is dark brown and green with dark orange corrosion. It is 27.19mm in diameter and 11.42mm thick. It …

An iron, but copper plated probable linch pin. The pin is very robust and is 106mm long. The pin is D shaped in section and tapers to a blunt point. It is 9.4mm wide at the thick end. The head of the pin is a separate spherical hollow knop which has a diameter of 14.5mm. There are vertical striations along the rounded side of the pin, and sloping transverse scratches on the flat side. The flat side is more worn at either end and not in the middle. Linch pins were used in the Iron Age and Roman periods to fix the wheels to the axels of vehicles. This probable pin is also probably from t…
