Record ID: SF-F8E0C7
Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Fragment of openwork copper-alloy plate, probably a buckle plate and either late Roman or Anglo-Saxon (seventh/early eighth century) in date. It measures 21.5 mm wide and the surviving length is 24 mm. There are two complete T-shaped cut-outs which are oriented with the crossbars parallel to the long edges and the stems pointing towards the middle of the plate. There is another pair of cut-outs, both probably identical, on either side of the complete pair, but the plate is now broken across both of these and the edges have corroded. The upper surface of the plate is covered with qu…

Object type: PIN
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Copper-alloy pin. The head is a flattened knob, 7.5 mm in diameter and 4 mm thick. Below are two substantial grooves with a narrow ridge in between, and below this it widens to the top of the shaft. The shaft is circular in cross-section and 3.5 mm in diameter at the top. It tapers gently to a stepped break, showing that the shaft was made by hammering together two narrower pieces of metal. The pin is fairly corroded and the break looks quite old. Cool’s type 6, dated to the second half of the first and the second century AD and concentrated in eastern England. Surviving lengt…

Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Copper-alloy finger-ring of Henig II and III/Guiraud 2 type. Only the shoulders and bezel survive; the shoulders flare to the oval bezel, and are decorated with two border grooves forming a V shape; there may also be a transverse groove just beyond the point of the V. The bezel has an oval cell measuring 10 x 8 mm, which retains some brown material - probably fine soil, rather than the remains of an adhesive for the missing setting. One break is old, the other fresh; the fresh break is a little way along what appears to be a parallel-sided hoop 4 mm wide. Roman, first or second cen…

Object type: SPATULA
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Wax spatula handle of Feugere's type A3. The top is hexagonal, with the front and back facets being wider than the four side facets; it tapers elegantly to a narrow waist before flaring out again slightly. The front and back facets then flatten towards transverse ridges; below the ridges the handle flares out more strongly to form a flattened triangle. The lower half of this is split to hold the iron blade - traces of iron survive - and is decorated with a pair of transverse grooves. At the split end, one corner of one face is missing, but otherwise the handle is complete. Spatula…

Object type: PENDANT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Copper-alloy pendant. The loop is broken, but would originally have been wide and circular; the breaks are old and corroded. Below the loop, the pendant is oval in cross-section. At the top is a globular area, then a ridge encircling the whole cross-section, then a long drop-shaped area ending in a small knobbed terminal. It is similar to Oldenstein (1976) no. 413, which he calls a phallic pendant. Surviving length 32 mm, width 10 mm, thickness 7.5 mm.

Object type: MINIATURE OBJECT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Miniature axe made from copper alloy. The blade is almost rectangular, tapering very slightly towards the blade end which is decorated on one face with three transverse grooves. The grooves are visible when the axe is held with the blade to the left and the shaft to the right. The shaft is circular in cross-section; where the original surface survives it is 3 mm in diameter. The shaft is set very slightly in from the butt of the axehead, but as many of the edges are fragmentary it is hard to tell exactly where the original edge of the butt was. The undecorated face has a slight gr…

Record ID: SF9068
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified object. Made from lead, it is roughly circular but all its edges may be broken. It is slightly dished, and on the convex face is a raised circle 13 mm in diameter in which is a relief mark, perhaps a W with a horizontal line through it, or perhaps a pair of Xs. On the concave face, opposite the mark, is a sunken square measuring 3 x 5 mm. It has been suggested that this might be the base of a pewter vessel, and Roman, but no parallel has been found.

Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Copper-alloy mount. It is basically almost circular, 16 x 17 mm, and is plano-convex, with a flat reverse and domed upper surface. Two oval perforations with small stems breaking through the edge turn this into a mushroom- or pelta-shape, the stalk of the mushroom having an expanded base. On the reverse is an integral spike or rivet. The mount itself is 6 mm thick; the rivet increases this to 12 mm. These mounts are not common and it is possible that they are military armour or horse-harness fittings.

Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
One plate from a strap-end, made from very thin copper alloy. It is of the 'lancet-shaped' late Roman type, with a rounded body and flared attachment end, but is very much more flimsy than most. The attachment end is decoratively cut into a curly bracket shape, and has a single central rivet hole. The body of the strap-end has four rather unevenly placed central ring-and-dot motifs, and tapered to a broken point which probably originally extended into a short terminal. On the reverse are extensive traces of solder, running up to a straight line close to the junction between the att…

Workflow stage: Published Find published
Very worn and corroded lid from a jug. The underside is flat, the upper face slightly convex, with a sloping and tapering projection in the centre, probably to help in lifting the lid. All edges are broken, but an echo of the original trefoil shape (covering both mouth and spout) can be seen. There is a broken stub projecting from the centre of a long edge; this was originally a hinge loop to attach the lid to the jug. There is a good parallel from Colchester (Crummy 1983, no. 2049).

Large biconical lead steelyard weight. Its maximum diameter is 40 mm and the lead part is 47 mm long, with a flattened area at either end.

Fragment of probable handle terminal from a patera.

The terminal is convex on the upper surface with a vertical wall to the central perforation which is 5 mm thick. One edge of the terminal retains a fragment of the flat handle itself, which is thin, slightly convex and at least 24 mm wide. All of the broken edges are old and worn.
