A copper eight maravedis of Philip IV (1621-1665) of Spain, dated to 1626 to the right of the shield on the reverse. The surface of the coin is heavily clipped and worn so that the numerals indicating the value of the coin are illegible but to the left of the shield on the obverse might possibly by part of a letter B for the mint of Burgos. Cayón (2005) illustrate a similar eight maravedis coin of Philip IV, minted at Burgos in 1625, on p.629, no.5328.

A fragment of the rim of a cast copper-alloy cooking vessel or cauldron. The edge of the rim is internally bevelled so that it is flush with the exterior but stepped on the interior, with a triangular profile, which is 7 mm thick before tapering to 4 mm below. The fragment has a layer of burnt black organic matter on the exterior, but a series of fine, parallel scratches at an angle of about 45 degrees to the rim cut through this layer, suggesting that they are post-deposition. The inner surface is smooth and flat, with some burnt organic matter trapped under the bevelled ridge that pr…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy fragment from the body of a cauldron. All of the edges are broken and uneven and the shallow curve of the wall suggests a large cauldron with a diameter of about 380 mm, that might hold about 7 gallons. The interior of the fragment is smooth and unencrusted. Much of the exterior is covered in a layer of burnt organic matter but has a very fine granular texture, suggesting a date of manufacture of the end of the 17th century, or later. Across the outer surface of fragment is a raised decorative band or 'wire' in the casting, that is 3 mm wide. Below this is an elongated t…

A fragment of a cast lead armorial cloth seal. The fragment consists of a strip, cut or torn across the diameter of a circular seal, 32 mm long, 14.5 mm wide and 1.5 mm thick, weighing 6 g. The fragment is damaged at both ends, so the precise diameter of the seal is uncertain. The front face is decorated with a double-arched St Edward's crown over a Tudor rose, within a ring of pellets. The back face is strengthened by a thicker band of lead, 3 mm wide, across the diameter of the seal. Egan (1994) illustrates a complete circular shaped cloth seal with an apparently identical design on…

A cast copper-alloy double-loop sub-annular buckle which is oval in plan and convex in section with a bevelled underside. The pin bar is inset from the front of the frame and surrounded by iron corrosion product from the iron pin which is now missing.

Fragment of a cast copper-alloy cauldron rim. Trapezoidal in plan, 50 mm long, 29.5 mm in width, 4.5 mm thick and 34 g in weight. All edges of the fragment are broken but there an abrupt change of angle of around 45 degrees across it indicating that it is from the junction of the body with the out-turned rim of the vessel. The curve of the fragment suggests a large vessel with a diameter of around 300 mm, with a possible capacity of 3 gallons. Cauldrons with sharply out-turned rims were widespread and common in the 17th century. Butler and Green (2003) illustrate many cauldrons from t…
