Object type: METAL WORKING DEBRIS
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of copper alloy metalworking debris of uncertain date. Very irregular in shape with a heavily pitted and corroded surface. Undiagnostic debris such as this can only be assigned a very broad Bronze Age to post-medieval date range. Length: 19.35mm, width: 15.10mm, thickness: 7.94mm, weight: 6.92g

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead and iron standing weight of uncertain date. It is conical in shape with a small, damaged iron suspension loop protruding from the apex and a round flat base. Simple weights like this one were used from the Roman to post-medieval periods and as such are difficult to date precisely. Diameter at base: 20.17mm, length: 24.11mm, weight: 29.61g

Record ID: SF-9FEEAF
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy unidentified object of uncertain date. The object consists of a cast spiral with a short circular cross-section stem extending from its outer end. There are three transverse grooves on the underside of the stem. The object is crudely cast and the surface of the metal is corroded. The spiral is similar to those seen on Ross' (1991) Type LXVI early medieval pins, but no cast examples have been recorded. Length: 17.95mm, width: 12.59mm, thickness: 3.18mm, weight: 1.77g

Record ID: SF-9C3A2A
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper alloy unidentified object, possibly an early medieval (Anglo-Saxon) ear-ring. The object is a short piece of wire, circular in cross-section, tapering to a point at either end (one slightly longer than the other). It has been bent into an irregular shape and is slightly distorted in places. Although undiagnostic in its current state, depending on its original form the object may have been a tool or item of jewellry. For example, a number of early medieval rings of a similar construction have been found during excavations, e.g. Elveden (West 1998, 26, no.24.7) and The…

Record ID: SF-1D1A06
Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper alloy trilobed socketed arrow or projectile head of uncertain date. The object is triangular in cross-section with three regularly spaced fins, each expanding towards the inner edge and diminishing towards the outer tip. At the inner end there is a short socket, circular in cross-section. Although socketed medieval arrowheads with a triangular cross-section are found, these typically have a longer socket and less pronounced fins than this example (see LMMC, 66, fig.16, nos.8-12). Instead it most closely resembles Iron Age and Roman examples from the southern Mediter…

A fragment of copper alloy metalworking debris of uncertain date. Very irregular in shape and appear to be waste from the casting process (it may be a very irregular casting sprue).

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead weight of uncertain date. It is disc-shaped with a rounded upper surface and a flat reverse. There is a slght raised ridge in the centre of the outer face, but it otherwise lacks diagnostic features. The surface of the metal is worn and corroded. Simple weights like this were used from the Roman period onwards and as such are difficult to date precisely when not recovered from a dated archaeological context. Diameter: 21.08mm, thickness: 10.00mm, weight: 27.66g

Record ID: SF-1841F3
Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper alloy hoop-shaped strap fitting of uncertain Roman to post-medieval date. It is oval in cross-section and there are mishapen casting seams around the centre. There are signs of wear on two opposite sides suggesting that it functioned as a strap junction. Loops like this one were ubiquitous from the Roman period onwards, changing little in form over time and so are difficult to date more precisely unless found in a secure archaeological context. Diameter: 26.07mm, thickness: 3.64mm, weight: 5.46g

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead bell-shaped object, possibly a weight of uncertain Roman to post-medieval date range. The object is of simple straight-sided shape with a small circular suspension loop extending from the upper end. Both sides have been crushed together. The surface of the metal is heavily corroded. Because the object is made from lead it is unlikely to have actually functioned as a bell. Although lead bells were produced in the medieval period at Canterbury as pilgrim souvenirs (e.g. LON-806D1C, KENT-EC8680, LON-C82858 and LEIC-6F1903) the patina and crude form of this example may sug…

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper alloy probable clasp of uncertain date. The object simply made from a piece of sheet metal with a rounded section at one end and an angular hook at the other. There is a small circular hole through the rounded section. The object is clearly designed to function as a clasp of some sort and is similar in design to those of early Anglo-Saxon date. See for example the group from Coddenham, Suffolk (West 1998, fig.21, nos.17-21). It is, however, much more simple in form and could be of a later date. Length: 15.3mm, width: 7.7mm, thickness: 1.3mm, weight: 0.31g

A sherd of an Iron Age to early medieval shelly ware vessel. The sherd comes from the body of the vessel. Both faces and margins are an oxidised patchy red and brown with a reduced brown core. The fabric is hard and coarse and is tempered with plentiful white shelly fragments (<5mm), occasional fine quartz sand and mica, and there are many voids where fragments have been lost.

A complete lead weight and token/weight of probable medieval or post-medieval date, found in the same location. The weight is discoidal with a mishapen, crude hole through its centre.

Diameter: 15.50mm, thickness: 1.81mm, weight: 3.46g Objects like these were use across a long period of time and therefore ar difficult to date precisely when there are few diagnostic features.
