Object type: ARMLET
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of undatable copper alloy ring or possible armlet consisting of just less than half, with one worn break and one less-worn. The fragment measures 69.44mm in length, 27.47mm in width and weighs 23.59g. The worn break is oval in cross-section (6.91x6.09mm) and has corrosion product on the surface. The other break has less corrosion product and measures 6.90x6.41mm. The surface is dark green in colour with much of the patina lost and pitting probably from corrosion. Although undatable and undiagnostic (given its incompleteness) the condition of the metal suggests a Late Br…

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two incomplete and probably Roman iron hobnails, with broken square-sectioned shafts. One has a conical, rectangular head (9.97x6.06x4.21mm), its overall length is 11.88mm and it weighs 0.81g. The other has a square conical head (8.44x7.83x4.14mm), its overall length is 14.26mm and it weighs 1.16g. The shaft is bent towards the end. Although it is rare for iron nails to survive for a prolonged period, this size and shape conforms to known examples of Roman hobnails.

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of unidentified object of uncertain date, measuring 14.30x13.05x2.50mm and weighing 1.79g. The object is openwork and square in shape, with a U-shaped inward projection on two opposing sides, creating an openwork-H at the centre. To one of the other edges is a broken stump, 3.74x2.50mm. The fragment is just possibly from a Late Early-Medieval (900-1100) copper alloy key, consisting of the bit and small stump of shank only, but not enough survives to give a more certain identification.
