A cast copper alloy link of uncertain date - most probably post medieval - or function. The link is cast in one piece being formed of two annular rings conjoined by two horizontal bars. The rings and bars are all rectangular in cross section. Casting flashes / seams have been removed by filing and it has a mid green brown coloured surface patina. The link seems to have little practical use and is not designed for harness or any function which would have placed it under strain. Given the casting methods and fisnihing a later medieval or more probably post medieval date is preferred. T…

A dressed rectangular block of mid yellow coloured coarse micaceous sandstone -the upper surface has been carved and a irregular worn oval shaped depression is present.

Two relatively thick fragments of stone (slate) roof tiles formed on a mid-grey coloured micaceous silt stone with clear banding / bedding planes. The upper surface of each of the tiles has a neatly cut cross with wedge shaped terminals. Both the crosses have been cut by hand using a small cold chisel with the profile of the cut being distinctly wedge shaped. The presence of the crosses has been noted on other roof tiles and probably represents either a local 'roofers / masonary mark' or a local tradition of cutting crosses into roofs as a sign of protection / superstition (stopping th…

Object type: SHOT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead alloy shot / ball of probable post medieval or early modern date (1600-1800 AD). Due to the size and weight the ball is most likely to be from a small carbine or pistol. The shot is sub spherical in shape with an uneven surface and a clear casting seam from the mould is present; there is no evidence of the shot having been fired. It is a mid-grey colour with an abraded patina. Similar shot has been dated to the later post medieval period however the date range should extend into the early modern period as similar projectiles were used in firearms throughout this period.

A large assemblage of late post medieval ceramic dishes / plates and chargers comprising more than 75 sherds of cream and orange fabric (late) staffordshire slip wares. These date from the period c. 1680-1800 and were discovered on the site of an old cottage / croft. Within the assemblage there is no pottery which predates 1700 and likewise there is no pottery which postdates 1820. Importantly. within the material provided by the owner there are no creamwares or transferwares which dominate pottery assemblages of the period 1750-1900. With this in mind it is most likely that the croft …
