A copper alloy unidentified object of uncertain date, Iron Age to Medieval. The object is baluster moulded terminal with a broken loop at one end. Adjacent to the loop is a thick beaded moulding of circular cross-section, then a groove, then a larger central beaded moulding, decorated with two shallow circumferential grooves which flank a convex central band. Another groove follows, then another bead matching the one by the loop. The end opposite the loop is hollow, with a cavity of circular section of 5mm diameter, extending at least 13mm into the centre of the object. A smooth olive …

An unidentified Iron artefact of unknown date. It is in the form of a narrow blade,that is flat on one side and slightly curved on the other side, resulting in a slight thickening in the centre of the blade. It tapers from the centre to a sharp point at one end and to what appears to be a cutting edge at the other, though the absence of any means of securing a haft probably means that it is not an axe and may be part of a larger piece of farming equipment. The artefact now shows the surface corrosion normal on iron artefacts. It is 162mm long, 48.6mm wide and 13.5mm thick. It weighs 303g..

A fragment of a ceramic vessel of uncertain date. The wall sherd is an orange red fabric which is hard with a fine texture with sparse, very small gray grit and quartz inclusions. The outer face is decorated with an incuse horizontal line, above which are incuse marks which could be letters. They appear to read KEYC or KEAT but are not terribly clear, and may only be decoration. The sherd is 22.8mm long, 18.4mm wide and 3.5mm thick. 2.3g.

A copper alloy artefact; a loop from a fragmentary larger object, of uncertain date, AD 43 - 1700. It is possibly a fragment of a hook from a sword belt fitting of post-medieval date, about AD 1500 - 1700. It consists of a short length of D-sectioned copper alloy, curved at one end into a loop where it is closed by a projecting transverse ridge on the inside of the loop. The other end curves in the opposite direction to the loop, but most of the remaining portion of the artefact has broken away at this point and is now missing. The outer side of the loop has moulded decoration, consis…

A lead possible weight of unknown date, Roman to Post Medieval, AD 43 - 1800. It is a cuboid of solid lead. One end is concave, and the edges project slightly. The sides are all flat and smooth. The other end is rough and is probably a break, now patinated. The object has a regular grey patina. There is no visible decoration, though natural imperfections in the metal have left slight marks on the surface. It is 16mm long, 12mm wide and 11mm thick. 21g. This object could have been used as a weight, but it appears to be incomplete. It could also be the casting well and runner from metal…

A copper alloy unidentified object of uncertain date. It is a crescent shaped plate of ovoid cross-section, but is rough and possibly unfinished or fire damaged. Projecting from the middle of the concave edge is a stem which is sub-D-shaped in cross-section. It is unclear whether the end is broken or not. The object is 40mm long, 30mm wide and 10mm thick. 26g. It has a pitted grey green patina. The shape is suggestive of Roman crescentic linch pin terminals, but also Post Medieval tap handles. It could also be a foot from a vessel. The damage to this object makes it difficult to date …

A lead standing weight of uncertain date, Early Medieval to Post Medieval, about AD 850 - 1700. The weight is roughly conical, but the base is pentagonal and the five sides taper as they extend upwards. The upper end of the weight is curved to the side and is damaged, making it unclear what shape it was originally. It is 35.1mm tall, 19.4mm wide and 18.3mm thick. 50.3g. This mass is only a little short of two ounces. Compare CORN-6BC1A8 and GLO-F61AB4.

A rolled strip of lead of unknown date, 200 BC - AD 1900. It is a tightly rolled strip of sheet lead which is about 1.3mm thick and 11.9mm wide, now forming an approximate cylinder of 9.8mm wide and 7.9mm thick. 6.6g. It was initially thought to be a possible Roman 'curse tablet'. However, similar objects such as DENO-21D323 have been compared to examples of verified curse tablets / rolls (http://curses.csad.ox.ac.uk), and are now thought to be of more modern date, and to have functioined as a weight, or simply a convienient lead ingot or offcut. Many examples on the PAS database are …

A possible steelyard weight of Roman to Post Medieval date, about AD 43 - 1800. It is a globular piece of lead with iron projecting at one end. The iron is bent into a closed suspension loop, though this is in two pieces now. The lead is oval when viewed from the end with the iron, and sub-circular when viewed from the larger sides. Roman steelyard weights are usually biconical, but weights of other shapes may also be Roman, though the steelyard was also used in the Medieval and Post Medieval periods. The lead has a light grey patina and is dented. It is 34mm long, 21.4mm wide and 17.…

A fragment of ceramic curved tile, possibly a roof tile of uncertain date, Roman to Modern, AD 43 - 1900. It is bright orange and curved in cross-section. It has a hard fabric with a rough surfce, especially on the inner face which could be sanded. There are sparse, poorly sorted inclusions, mainly of grog and grit. It is not obviously made of extruded clay, but a Post Medieval or Modern date cannot be ruled out. It is 60.4mm long, 38.7mm wide and 11.8mm thick. 33.3g.

A copper alloy unideintified object of uncertain date, Roman to Post Medieval, AD 43 - 1700. It is a flat plate with almost all the edges broken. It is roughly D shaped in plan. The straight edge is complete in the middle, but broken at the ends,so this edge was either recessed or perhaps a hinge fitting or a slot perhaps for use as a catch. The curved edge has the broken remains of three large sub circular perforations in three projecting lobes with V shaped notches between them. The holes have diameters of about 5mm. They could have been used for attahment, but are too big to be rive…

An iron unidentified object of uncertain date, AD 43 - 1950. It is probably made of wrought iron as it has the appearance of grain, like wood does. It is a bar which is circular in section at one end, but which quickly flattens out to a thinner rectangular cross-section. At the other end, one side curves inwards producing a knife like shape with a flat back and a pointed tip. This object is not identified as a knife however, because the curved edge is as uniformally thick (about 3.5mm) as the straight back, so there is no cutting edge, though the whole object does taper towards the cur…

A fragment of a ceramic vessel of uncertain date, Roman to Modern, AD 43 - 1900. The shard is an unusual shape and damaged, but appears to be part of the rim and shoulder from a narrow necked vessel with a rounded body. The fabric is orange and hard, with a irregular texture and sparse inclusions of quartz and grit. At first glance the fragment looks like the edge of a tegula or tile, but there are sufficient curves to rule this out. The fragment is 39.7mm tall, 61.7mm wide and 20mm thick. 76.2g.

A fragment of ceramic tile, possibly Roman tegulae, of uncertain date, Roman to Modern, AD 43 - 1900.

Seven fragments of ceramic tile, possibly Roman tegulae, of uncertain date, Roman to Modern, AD 43 - 1900. Each fragment is orange and flat or almost flat, but all are incomplete, so the shape of the edge is not known. They could be roof tile or floor tile. None are obviously made of extruded clay, but a Post Medieval or Modern date cannot be ruled out. The largest fragment is 80.9mm long, 78.1mm wide and 17.1mm thick. 131g.

None are obviously made of extruded clay, but a Post Medieval or Modern date cannot be ruled out. The largest fragment is 113.4mm long, 95.9mm wide and 12.6mm thick. 246g.
