  • Thumbnail image of LVPL-889F97

Record ID: LVPL-889F97
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small copper alloy object that resembles an axle or roller. The object is one piece of metal, but can be understood to consist of three areas that are contiguous; a central shaft and two circular projections of unequal size that emerge from and encircle it. The shaft emerging from the largest projection appears to terminate abruptly, possibly indicating that is continued further or has broken. The other smaller projection tapers smoothly to a rounded end. The entire object follows a slight curve, which may be a product of some action upon it after deposition rather than its original shape.
