  • Thumbnail image of SF3529

Record ID: SF3529
Object type: RING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Copper-alloy ring, now broken at one point around the circumference. The section is a smooth oval, 3 x 4 mm, and the diameter is c. 24 mm. There is a polished grey-green patina. The break in the ring is L-shaped, and to one side has caused a longitudinal central split. Because of this, it seems possible that the ring was made by hammering rather than casting, and that a line of weakness remains around the centre. The ring looks old, but is not really datable.

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Lead object consisting of an oval ring, 27 x 18 mm, with an 8 mm wide projection coming off the centre of one long side. The projection is 26 mm long, and ends in a chisel-like point with one face corroded and patinated and the other apparently fresh. The entire object has a flat unfinished reverse, and a more rounded shape on the front. It looks a little like a model for a key or similar. Overall length 40 mm.

Record ID: SF3598
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified object made from copper alloy and iron. It is flattish and consists of a disc with a long pointed projection. The disc is 16 mm in diameter and mainly composed of iron, with a depression in the centre which may once have been a perforation. Around the edge of the disc, at least on one face, is a short length of copper alloy which curves around and then projects out to end in what may be a relief animal head. The poor condition of the object means that it is hard to decide even if the animal head is in profile or full-face; it is just possible that it has been subjecte…

Record ID: SF3601
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Fragment of unidentified object made of copper alloy, perhaps part of a decorative binding ring. Part of a hollow cylinder survives, with a thick triangular projection extending at right angles to the cylinder on the outside. The inside of the cylinder has a brown corrosion that is not found elsewhere on the fragment. The cylinder fragment measures 20 x 15 mm (one of the short edges being a probable original edge); the projection measures 7 x 13 mm at base and is 11 mm tall.

Small rectangular flat lead plaque with relief decoration on one face. It is hard to tell what the decoration represents, and whether the object is complete or not. It may not be particularly old.

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk

Small, roughly hemispherical, gold droplet with rounded upper surface and flattish lumpy reverse. The surface is pitted all over. The diameter varies from c. 6 to c. 7 mm and the thickness is c. 4 mm at most. This droplet is undatable; although there is no particular reason to believe that it is over 300 years old, an ancient origin is possible and so it has been recorded.

Copper-alloy ring, circular and of oval section, 21 mm in diameter, and now rather corroded. At one point on the circumference there is a rectilinear moulding which runs around the whole of the section. The moulding is c. 2 mm thick and measures 4 x 5.5 mm. Around the moulding is some thick, well-preserved white-metal coating or, just possibly, solder. Date and function unknown.

Lead alloy disc, 36.5 mm in diameter and 2 mm thick, with a ?copper-alloy tube attached to the reverse, presumably to make the object a mount, and filled with lead alloy. The front of the disc has relief decoration of a triple-strand border around two concentric hexagons both with incurved sides. In the centre of the inner hexagon are six radiating lines. This object has been shown to various curators at the British Museum (Leslie Webster and Susan Youngs of Medieval and Modern Europe, and Gareth Williams and Barrie Cook of Coins and Medals); all agree that it is very unlikely to be a…

Unidentified copper-alloy object in very corroded condition. It is basically a flat piece of copper-alloy strip, now a little bent, 5 mm wide and 2 mm thick, with one end curled over or otherwise made into a solid cylinder 6 mm in diameter and with a perforation through the middle. The perforation is blocked with iron corrosion. This cylindrical loop is not set symmetrically to the strip, but creates one flat face, protruding on the other face. Over the flat face and top of the loop are two broad flutes; this is the only definite surviving decoration, although there may be hints of tr…

Copper-alloy object of unidentified date and function. It appears to have been cast and is fairly chunky, consisting of a ?rectilinear plate, on average 2 mm thick, with most edges broken. A D-section rib runs transversely across the plate and then projects from the centre of one long edge as a 33 mm long rod. The plate's surviving dimensions are 23 x 15 mm; it has one surviving rounded corner. The other long edge is turned down at right angles and then broken. The rod flares very slightly to a maximum 4 x 6 mm at its end, which is complete. The surface is undecorated and rather rough…

Record ID: SF4965
Object type: RING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Very corroded copper-alloy ring, 19 mm in external diameter and 13-15 mm in internal diameter. This is very small for a finger-ring and the ring is also undecorated. The ring is very light, so possibly hollow; but it has an uneven circular cross-section (2.5 to 1 mm diameter) which has not worn through anywhere, so if it is hollow either the void in the centre is very narrow or it was made unevenly. An odd little object of unknown date.

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Irregular perforated weight or spindle-whorl made from chalk. Sub-rectangular with rounded corners when viewed either from the top or the side, it measures 27 x 34 mm and is 15 mm thick. It is either not particularly well made or has suffered some damage, as it has a rather lumpy outline. The circular perforation is a little off-centre and is symmetrically waisted, narrowing slightly to c. 10 mm minimum diameter. Weights like this one are usually interpreted as spindle-whorls, but a rectangular weight would perhaps not make a very good whorl as it would not turn evenly. They canno…

Record ID: SF5225

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
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.

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.
