Record ID: SF6476
Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Thurrock
Workflow stage: Published Find published
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…

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.

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.

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.

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk

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: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
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…

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.

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.

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.

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
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.

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…

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.
