Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A sub-circular disc-like lead alloy object, probably a vessel repair ('pot-mend') of Roman to medieval date. The vessel mend is crudely made with the remains of a shank on one side - the opposing side is pitted and uneven. These objects are very hard to date without contextual information. Suggested date: AD 43-1500. For comparison see NLM-61DCBD

Object type: SIDE SCRAPER
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint side scraper on a thick flake of uncertain date - potentially the flake could be Palaeolithic but equally it could be later prehistoric. The secondary flake has been hard-hammer struck from a mottled orange-brown flint. There are additional ancient removals / edge damage on the right hand edge of the ventral surface, but there is also modern damage on the same edge.

The blade is broken towards the distal end.

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
The remains of a small socketed iron tool, possibly an axe or chisel or other woodworking tool of early-medieval to post-medieval date. The tool has an unevenly worn crescentic blade which narrows in to the remains of a circular socket. It appears that the small section of the socket retained may be open, a trait often seen on iron objects and weapons of early-medieval date.

Object type: PIN
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy pin of uncertain date. The pin has a broadly plain globular or spherical head with a small conical point at the top, while the shank is quite thick and irregular, being sub-rectangular in section. The shank may have been miscast as there is a hollow down its length, although an alternative interpretation is that this is a decortive furniture fitting and the moulding of the shank facilitated the insertion and securing of the pin in to a wooden object, for eample. It is hard to confidently date this object; It is of a simple, plain form and is most likel…

An incomplete copper alloy pin of uncertain date. The pin has a plain globular or spherical head and circular sectioned shank which is broken and incomplete. There is no obvious collar between the head and the shank. It is hard to confidently date this object; It is of a simple, plain form and is most likely to date from the Roman to early-medieval period, c. AD 75-850.

Record ID: BERK-84A26C
Object type: PIN
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy pin fragment of uncertain date. The pin has a plain globular or spherical head with indentation between the head and the shank, but not a collar as is usually seen. The shank of the pin is short and terminates in a point; it may have been repointed after a break as pin shanks are usually longer. It is hard to confidently date this object; if Middle Saxon it would be similar to Flixborough type 110, or if Roman (which is probably more likely), it would fit in to Cool's Group 2A. Suggested date: Unknown; Early Roman to Early Medieval, AD 75-850.

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead alloy weight of uncertain date. The weight is circular in plan and plano-convex in cross section, of irregular thickness and with a sub-circular perforation through the centre. There is no deocration. These objects are very hard to date and had a variety of uses, from spindle whorls to net and fishing weights. Probably medieval in date however they can date from c. AD 600-1600.

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper alloy awl / leather working tool of uncertain date, possibly Bronze Age but concievably Roman or medieval. The awl is in very good condition with a nice deep green patina. The awl has a square cross section. One end tapers to a sharp point and the other flattens in to a blunt end, similar to a chisel. There are some scratches on the rounded end. Some awls may have been hafted in to a wooden or bone handle however this example was probably used in the hand without hafting as both ends of the awl are useful, practical tools.

Object type: CASTING WASTE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An unidentified copper alloy object, probably a fragment of casting debris from metal working in a mould and comprising a probable well and diagonal runner. The date is uncertain. The object is cone-shaped with a flaw in one side. The top of the casting jet is deeply pitted in places. Although it is not possible to identify the period with certainty, the patina suggests it may date from the Bronze Age to Roman period.

Record ID: BERK-869C5B
Object type: CASTING WASTE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of probably casting waste, probably of Roman or early medieval date. The fragment is tear-drop shaped in plan and convexed on the front, with no decoration visible. The reverse is broadly flat but uneven and with a upright spur reminiscent of a brooch's catchplate. However the poor quality of casting and lack of evidence for finishing suggests that this may be a waste product rather than a formal object. Suggested date AD 43-700.

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A worn and crudely made Roman or Medieval lead weight. weighing 1032 grains / 2.36 oz / 66.9 grams. The weight is conical and roughly cast with a circular base that has a small circular depression off centre. The apex has a hole suggesting it had a loop attachement, so it may have been used with a steelyard scale rather than pan scales, however the weight would have functioned on either.

Record ID: BERK-7C4FE6
Object type: AWL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete and unusually large cast copper alloy awl of uncertain date. The awl has a square cross section, tapering either end, one to a squared pointed terminal, the other to a round-sectioned point. This example measures 100mm in length, over twice the length of most examples recorded on this database. These objects are extremely hard to date without contextual association; they could date anywhere from the Bronze Age through to the Medieval period, however this example could be Late Iron Age or Roman in date due to the patina when compared to other finds from the same area.
