Record ID: FAHG-BD8643
Object type: BUTTON
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Small solid circular biconvex button, apparently made from white metal (perhaps a tin alloy) but possibly made from copper alloy with a thick white-metal coating. On the reverse are two stubs from a separate copper-alloy wire loop. The button is heavy and globular, and dates from the medieval or perhaps early post-medieval period. A good parallel can be seen in Egan and Pritchard 1991, no. 1388, which was found in a context dating to approximately 1270-1350.

Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Copper-alloy double-looped strap fitting, perhaps a strap-slide (which holds down the free end of a strap). One loop is smaller and rectangular (internal measurements 15 x 5 mm). The other is roughly D-shaped, of the same width as the smaller loop but longer; the outer edge is decorated with a crowned head. The head has a three-pointed crown, a hooked nose, little chin and the top of the shoulders; there is no detail added in the form of eyes, mouth and so on. The head is set so that it is best seen when the fitting is held vertically and on edge; it would have worked very well if th…

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Frame and part of forked spacer plate from a composite buckle, made from greyish copper alloy. The frame is oval, 31 mm wide, and has a pointed pin rest. The pin is made from a greener copper alloy and is wrapped around a constriction between the two forks of the spacer. It has a projecting rectangular lobe at the junction of the shaft and the loop. The spacer plate is of the type illustrated in Egan and Pritchard 1991, no. 325, with two steps from the pin constriction to the long forked arms. Both of the long arms are missing with only short stubs extending from the steps. There…

Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Circular lead seal matrix, 28 mm in diameter and 2 mm thick, with some edge damage. On the reverse is a pierced lug, now bent over. The central motif is an eight-point star made from four engraved lines crossing. The legend around reads * S’ SIMONIS D’ LAVSILL’ (Seal of Simon of Lausill). Lausill is perhaps Lawshall in Suffolk; in records of 1194 this is spelled Laweshell, but in the Lay Subsidy of 1327 it is spelled Lausele. This seal matrix dates to the 13th century.

Object type: STRAP END
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Strap-end made from a single piece of copper alloy sheet folded in half. The exterior is highly polished and has traces of linear decoration, perhaps rouletted double rows of triangles. The attachment end is closed with a single copper-alloy rivet with a neat flat head at either end. One end of the sheet is neatly rectilinear, but the other is more irregular with possibly part of a very small rivet hole. The sheet is 14 mm wide and the strap-end is 11 mm long. The decoration of rouletted double triangles is characteristically medieval, and the construction with a single well-made …

Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Two copper-alloy strap links, perhaps originally swivelling. One has a neatly circular loop, 7 mm internal diameter and 11 mm external diameter. The other has a less neat loop, slightly oval and having some internal wear; it is 13 mm wide externally and measures 8 x 9 mm internally. The loops are then joined by a solid part, a varying oval in cross-section, which has a circumferential groove around it. This groove may represent a junction which has now been corroded solid. Alternatively, as the loops are at exactly right angles to each other, and as there is no swivelling pin visi…

Object type: BOOK FITTING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Incomplete book clasp, made of copper alloy sheet 26 mm wide. The attachment end is missing; the surviving end is narrowed and curled over to form the hook. It is covered with stamped decoration; at the broken end is a circle surrounded by small triangles, resembling a sun pattern. Nearer the hook is a broad transverse band of decoration consisting of three ring-and-dots alternating with two small fleur-de-lis motifs, with raised dots around. This is flanked on either side by a row of beading, then on the side away from the hook there are three large triangles with their points tow…

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified object made from copper-alloy strip. One end is cut straight across, and is slightly flatter and wider. The strip then has bevelled edges, and tapers slightly all the way to a slightly expanded oval terminal. This terminal has a copper-alloy rivet with a slightly rounded head and a large burred-over end; the wider end also has a rivet, with neatly concealed head and neater end. The wider end is bent outwards and then back under and up to form a drop-shaped loop which is nearly closed. The form of the rivet at the wider end suggests a medieval date (probably 14th centu…

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified object made from copper alloy. It is basically shield-shaped, with a straight top and edges gently curving to a point. It is 6mm thick, however, with a flat reverse and curved front, and has decoration which is too three-dimensional to represent an actual shield. The straight top has two grooves which run across at a slight angle, combining to form a wide depression with a central curved-top ridge. Below this, pairs of narrow grooves radiate, curving over the front and down the edges of the object. Again the decoration is asymmetrical, so that the grooves are spaced m…

Object type: STRAP END
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Strap-end made from a single piece of copper alloy. The attachment end has two copper-alloy rivets which protrude from the surface; the end is shaped slightly around them. A shallow groove runs down the length of the strap-end from between the two rivets. The sides of the strap-end are shaped; it tapers slightly, and then has a pair of projections on each side at the terminal end. Between these projections is a third rivet, this time flush with the surface and well concealed; the groove is probably interrupted by this rivet, although as the surface is worn and corroded it is hard t…

Object type: DRESS FASTENER (DRESS)
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Catch-piece from a dress fastener, made from copper alloy. The front edge is rectilinear, with a neatly cut rectangular slot measuring 12 x 4 mm. Behind the slot, the object has a small circular central hole; it then tapers to a point. At the point is a concave curve which looks like the remains of a second hole, in line with the first. Given this, it would seem likely that the object had broken to its present tapered shape, were it not for the fact that scoring lines can just be seen along the edge on both faces. Those on the upper face could be decoration, but as they appear on b…

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pair of copper-alloy tweezers made from fairly thick (1 mm) strip, with an expanded loop. The ends of the arms are both missing (fresh breaks). The loop is corrugated, with three longitudinal ridges and two grooves. The arms flare very slightly, from 3 mm wide near the loop to 4 mm wide at the breaks. They are each decorated with a fine engraved unbroken line down each edge; between these lines are irregular short longitudinal lines which do not form rows. The decoration suggests a medieval date (e.g. Egan and Pritchard 1991, 576, which is late 14th century).

Object type: SPUR
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Neck and rowel box from a gilded copper-alloy rowel spur. The neck is broken at the start of two surviving wide rounded mouldings (old break); there is a much narrower moulding at the junction with the rowel box. The rowel box is angled and narrows sharply; it is crossed by a transverse lobe before swelling out again into rounded terminals which are pierced for the iron bar, which only survives as a stain. The whole object is covered with small punchmarks made by an annulet punch usually held at an angle to produce C-shaped marks. A close published parallel has not been found for t…

Candle-socket from a branched candlestick, with the end of the branching arm. The socket is cast separately in a copper alloy which has now corroded to a very dark green. It is 35 mm tall, and is a cylindrical in shape, slightly flaring towards a maximum diameter of 21 mm at the top. It is decorated with three bands of moulding; a triple band at the top and in the middle, and a double band at the base. Below this it tapers to a projecting stub, with the underside decorated with a circular groove. The stub passes through a hole in the end of the branching arm and is hammered over t…
