  • Thumbnail image of SF-E13BA0

Record ID: SF-E13BA0
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified fragment of copper-alloy sheet with engraved decoration. The edges are now curved (one concave, the rest convex) and it is unclear if they are cut or broken. There is a single wavy groove roughly parallel to the concave edge, with a pair of short grooves running in the same direction to one side, and two rows of short grooves running perpendicular to this on the other side. Neither the form nor the decoration help in assigning a date to this object.

  • Thumbnail image of SF-0FE267

Record ID: SF-0FE267
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified object made from copper alloy. It is flat and decorated on one face only. One end flares out to become U-shaped, with a straight end 8 mm wide. It is decorated with five transverse ridges within a border ridge. At the other end, a very narrow shaft extends from the curved end of the U; this is now bent and corroded, but was originally perhaps circular in cross-section and is now presumably broken. The surviving length is 19 mm. The metal is a greyish copper alloy. Neither the form nor the decoration of this object appear to be of any help in assigning a date or function.

Fragment of cast copper alloy. The fragment is curved, with two parallel bands of rounded convex moulding on the exterior; both bands have damage to them (hammer marks) and between these the metal is rough. The interior has a series of parallel flat facets, striations and hollows, set perpendicular to the mouldings on the exterior. All the edges have fresh unworn breaks, indicating that the metal is quite brittle. The metal is patinated a dark green all over, including the breaks. Length perpendicular to mouldings, 7 mm. Width parallel to mouldings, 28 mm. Thickness 4 mm. It is …

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An unidentified object made from lead. The base is rectangular (20 x 13 mm) with a rectangular projection at each corner bringing the maximum dimensions up to 23 x 17 mm; it is 10-11 mm thick. The rectangular projections continue up the base on the long edges but not on the short edges, giving a tapering effect. The underside of the base has a series of scratched lines forming a rough ziz-zag of perhaps five points, with a line beneath them; the lines are patinated and look as if they might be original. On the top of the base are two tall cones which bend slightly towards each ot…

Unidentified object made from copper alloy and lead. Rectangular, flat and thick, it has six faces; two large front and back faces, two sides, and a top and bottom. One of the larger faces, both sides, certainly the top and also perhaps the bottom appear to have been made from a single piece of dark grey cast copper alloy which increases in thickness slightly from one short edge to the other. The other large face is made from a separate sheet of green copper alloy. There is an oval hole in the centre of this showing that the centre of the object is filled with lead. The hole ext…

Block of possible sandstone, hollowed out cylindrically inside to make a possible vessel. Externally there is a carination close to the base. The rim is missing (surviving height 98 mm) and the breaks are abraded. There are three cracks around the circumference which have been eroded externally to form clefts. Internally the surface is a reddened orangey colour, and externally there is an orange patch close to a blackened patch; the colours appear to have sunk in between the grains of stone, like pigment or lichen. The inside has a curious smell which people tend to describe as 'burnt…

Unidentified object made from cast copper alloy. It consists of a central stem and three side branches; the stem has a central rib on one face and has a fragment of a projecting corner at the base on the other face. The break here is old. The lowest side branch extends upwards and away from the stem in a straight line; the next one is on the other side, and is similar but longer and at a less acute angle. The third is back on the first side and is short and curved. The stem then ends in a point. The object has a hand-made look and a grey, surface-enriched or white-metal coated surface…

Object type: RING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Circular copper-alloy ring, 21 mm in diameter. Rounded in section, 2.5 x 1.5 mm; otherwise featureless, with an even olive green patina. It is comfortable as a finger-ring and could well have been used as such. Dating is difficult as there are so few diagnostic features, but the patina looks of some age.

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Part of one arm of a pair of tweezers. It flares from 7 mm wide at the fairly fresh break, to 8.5 mm close to the bottom; it becomes a little narrower at the turned-in end, but this may be due to edge damage. The arm is flat and the end is turned in at right angles. There is no decoration, and so the fragment is hard to date; it could date to anywhere from the Roman to the medieval period.

Lead pot mend with narrow waist where it would have passed through the hole in the pot. To one side of this it is a neat circle; the other side is much more irregular. Traces of reddish pot survive in the waisted centre, but not enough to date the pot-mend which could either be Roman, medieval or post-medieval.

Chunky copper-alloy unidentified object. At one end is a flattened globular terminal 16 mm wide by 13 mm deep and 13 mm tall, with a side-to-side perforation. This ends in a narrow neck, and below the object flares out again and splits into a front and back plate, each about 4 mm thick and with bevelled edges. Each plate is slightly concave, and they come closest to each other In the centre where each plate has a perforation. Between the plates is iron corrosion and it seems possible that the plates could have been pulled together by an iron rivet passing through the central perforati…

Object type: STRAP END
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unusual and hard-to-date strap-end made from copper alloy. The attachment end is broken off, and the strap-end now consists only of one sheet 27.5 mm long, decorated on one face with five ring-and-dot motifs, tapering from 9 mm wide at the broken end to 8 mm wide at the narrower end which has two curved cut-outs at the corners. Off centre, between the ring-and-dot at the narrow end and its neighbour, is a small copper-alloy rivet which cuts through the ring. This strap-end is certainly post-Roman, and may be early Anglo-Saxon; it is not middle or late Anglo-Saxon, but may be medieval.

Mystery object made of iron and also probably of copper alloy. As far as can be seen, the object consists of a circular-section iron rod, flattened and widened in the centre, bent into a U shape. On the outer curve of the U is some smooth greenish metal, perhaps an elongated copper-alloy plate, with a blob of iron in the centre which may be the remains of a rivet holding the copper alloy on. Although both ends of the iron rod are broken, the most complete tapers to 5 mm in diameter; the centre of the U has expanded to 11 mm wide and 3 mm thick. This is perhaps similar to one from …

Broad period: UNKNOWN

Workflow stage: Published Find published
Copper-alloy upholstery tack with hollow-domed pointed-oval head and remains of square-section spike. The head is carefully made with the convex surface made up of lots of longitudinal facets with some oblique filemarks. It may once have been neatly symmetrical, but now a bit of one edge has been cut away. The patina is a dark greyish black, but there is green below where the patina has rubbed off. The dating of this object is difficult - pointed-oval tacks are known from the Roman period but are also used today. The careful manufacture of this one might indicate a relatively early date.
