Broad period: MEDIEVAL

An unidentified lead object, possibly a mould, roughly rectangular in shape and with a central suken area. The design is situated in a sunken circle, part of which has been destroyed by damage to the main lead slab. At the centre is a curving serpent-like design with a tassel of four parts as a tail and an S shaped body, leading to a possible head. This may only be half of a two-part mould, maybe for the creation of tokens or coin-like objects. There is also the possibility this was used for impressing a design into butter.

A lead spindle whorl of probable medieval date due to material and style of decoration. The shape is biconical discoid with differing patterns between the two sides.

The other side features a radial arrangement of crude roughly ovoid shapes, each containing amorphous pellet like designs. The diameter of the central hole is 8mm, and the distance from the edge of the …

A swivel mount possibly of medieval age, cast of copper alloy. The object consists of a loop of 23mm diameter at its widest point, in turn attached to another smaller loop rotated 45 degrees axially.

A small medieval metal 'hedgehog' mount of copper alloy. The object is shaped almost like a fan or a truncated ping-pong racket, though the overall form is considered to be zoomorphic and to be a representation of the head of a spined animal. Other examples with much more clearly bestial features have been recorded on the database, but thisn particular example is quite abstract. One side is convex and deeply cross-hatched to form crude diamond shapes, representing fur or spines, with a smooth, rounded knop below them functioning as a nose. The other is concave and has a projection r…

An unidentified copper-alloy object, possibly in the shape of a scallop shell. The upper convex surface is incised with numerous small circles, some of which have retained what appears to be gilding. Radiating ribs, originating at what would be the hinge of the scallop shell, can be seen. At the read, projecting from the hinge, are two small tine-like pieces, the left one (if the hinge is pointed up) is twice as long as the right. The underside is free of markings, being relatively smooth. The scallop as a religious symbol is associated with St James and the camino de Compostela, and…

A lead-alloy spindle-whorl, possibly of medieval date, coated in a layer of lead corrosion products. Spindle whorls are a spinning technology developed to allow for the preparation of even threads for the creation of cloth or other textiles. The object is roughly circular, and pierced through the middle to form a flywheel shape. The edges and inner hole are surrounded by a raised encircling border, and between them is a depressed area which may possibly have been decorated with raised linear patterns but is now too degraded to be legible.

An incomplete lead ampulla, the neck and both handles being missing, though the stump of one remains at the left of the severed neck. The surface of the object is covered in a layer of powdery lead corrosion. The front is moulded in a series of curvilinear rays giving the impression of a bivalve shell, possibly a scallop, which is often a symbol asssociated with connections to St James of Compostela. The reverse is scratched and pitted and any deliberate marking is obfuscated, but it is possible the back was plain. The design is similar to PUBLIC-B3E28A and NMGW-600111
