Object type: STYLUS
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two lead styli of probable Medieval or Post-Medieval date. Both are circular in section and cylindrical in form with a tapering point at one end with the other ends worn and blunt which may have originally expanded into a wedge-shape, used to erase what had been written with the point. The first stylus is 4.3 mm in length, 7.5 mm in diameter and 19.85 g in weight; the second is 62.5 mm in length, 10.5 mm in diameter and 22.6 g in weight. The long, tapered end of the longer stylus is deeply pitted and the surfaces of both styli are coated with an off-white layer of lead oxide. Egan (199…

Object type: DIE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast asymmetric lead die dating from the Medieval to the Post-medieval period. The die is slightly irregular in shape but with well-squared corners and smooth, flat faces with drilled dots to indicate their values. It measures 9.5 mm by 8.6 mm by 7.6 mm and weighs 7.25 g. The opposing longer, wider faces are 4 and 3; the longer, narrower faces are 6 and 2; the short ends are 5 and 1. This pattern does not conform to any of the 16 variants of the 'regular' format illustrated by Potter (1992) and reproduced by Egan in Finds Research Group Datasheet 23 (1997) on p.3, fig.2, in which the…

A Medieval cast copper alloy enamelled heraldic harness hook dating from c.1250-1400. The harness fitting is complete and cast in one piece with a shield-shaped plate above an expanded biconical collar which tapers to a distorted hook.

Object type: THIMBLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy open-topped thimble or sewing ring, now sub-circular in plan as the sides have come together, and rectangular in profile. The surface is corroded and has some iron staining on the exterior, and the circumferences of both the upper and lower edges are damaged but preserve short sections of the original edges: 8 mm on the lower edge and 2.5 mm on the upper edge. The outer face has been hand punched with four rows of irregularly-spaced circular pits or indentations. Egan (2005) on page 132, fig.126, no.648 illustrates a similar sewing ring from Fastolf Place, Southwark…

Object type: SIEVE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a sheet copper alloy sieve or strainer, irregular in plan with all of the edges broken and uneven, but originally part of a circular object. Five complete, circular piercings remain, all between 2 and 2.5 mm in diameter. Remnants of at least four more piercings are visible around the edges and it appears that the piercings radiate form a central area and that their is a curved perimeter. The piercings appear to have all been punched from one face and the opposite inside face has black organic matter on the surface suggesting that it was probably used as part of a kitchen im…

Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy pendent loop, hexagonal in plan and in section and lozenge-shaped in profile with an internal aperture that is circular and 17 mm in diameter. Part of the surface of the outer edge are missing, partly due to the crudeness of manufacture and partly because of later corrosion; consequently, the diameter varies between 24 for the rounded edges and 26 mm for the squared off sides, and the thickness between 3.4 and 3.7 mm. There are patches of what appears to be black lacquer on the surface, which may have been applied to protect the ring from abrasion and corrosion. Bail…

Incomplete cover plate of the box mounted at the apex of a Post-medieval copper alloy stirrup in the form of a scallop shell or crown.

In the centre of the convex upper edge, there is a rectangular knop, 8 mm wide and protruding 6 mm from the edge. This makes the plate look like a crown with a mounted element on top. If meant to depict a scallop shell, then it may indicate links …
