Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: MEDIEVAL

A bifaced lead token. One side of the flan has two characters at the centre in relief. The first letter is probably a 'C' or possibly a 'G' followed by an 'A'. The other side of the flan has an unclear symbol, also moulded in relief. This symbol comprises a hollow square formed of lines over a cross that stretches the full diameter of the disc. Die axis is uncertain. Weight is 6.63g, diameter is 21.9mm, thickness is 2.3mm. This token is probably most likely to date to the Elizabethan period, c.AD1558-1603. See Fletcher, E., 2003.

Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead or lead-alloy uniface token of Medieval to early Post-Medieval date. This artefact was probably cast, having quite a uniformly circular flan with the exception of c.7.4mm of the circumference which protrudes outwards for an extra 2.4mm. This protrusion may possibly be the remains of a casting sprue. The object weighs 1.89g, has a diameter of 16.6mm increasing to c.17.7mm in line with the protrusion, and a thickness of 1.3mm. One side of the flan is decorated in relief. The decorative motif is a star formed of four lines crossing at the centre to produce eight arms with a slight …

A Medieval harness pendant. This artefact weighs 22.8g and is made from copper-alloy with the remains of a white metal (probably silvered) coating over all surfaces.

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete scabbard sheath chape of Medieval date. This artefact is like the one found at Wharram Percy (Goodall 1979) which may date to approximately the 12th Century AD. It is also similar to the chape recorded in PAS database record BUC-ADAD64 & SUSS-CE4E27. The artefact made of sheet metal would originally have had a 'U' shape consisting of a horizontal upper edge and 'V' shaped lower edge to the body of the chape. A single arm would have extended upwards from each end. The 'U' shaped artefact would have been folded in half to form a roughly 'L' shaped final object. The …

Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A bifacial lead token of Medieval to Post-Medieval date. The token weighs 7.24g, has a diameter of 22.4mm and thickness of 2.8mm. Both sides of the flan have a beaded border of pellets encircling two capital letters. The pellets have a diameter of c.2.1mm. One side of the flan probably has a letter A and reversed letter G. This could be the result of the 'G' having been formed correctly on the mould resulting in the tokens being produced in that mould having reversed non-symmetrical letters. Alternatively the characters on this side of the flan might possibly be CA. The other side of t…
