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.

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 …

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…

Unidentified object made out of copper-alloy sheet. It consists of a rectangular plate, 12 x 21 mm, and a broken projection which extends from the centre of one of the long edges. The plate is undecorated and curved slightly along the long axis. It has two empty rivet holes in the corners of the long edge opposite the projection, and a third rivet hole blocked with iron just by the base of the projection. On the concave face each hole has a surrounding patch of iron corrosion. The projection tapers from 5 mm wide as it emerges from the plate to 4 mm wide at the break. It is bent,…

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…

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…

Unidentified object made of lead alloy, flat and oval with relief decoration on one face. The decoration is now hard to read, but appears to be relief lines making up a square divided unevenly into four, with blobs in some of the quarters. Unknown date and function.

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 …

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…

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…

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 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…

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.

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.
