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

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

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 …

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 Medi…

A complete lead hanging weight of probable medieval to post-medieval date. The object is rectangular both in shape and cross-section. There is a small square hole through one end and a wheel-like design has been incised on one face. The surface of the metal is corroded and there is damage in places around the sides. Simple weights like these were in use for a long period of time and as such only a broad Roman to post-medieval date range can be suggested. Length: 48.54mm, width: 48.47mm, thickness: 10.21mm, weight: 221.07g

An incomplete copper alloy unidentified object of probable Roman to medieval date. The object consists of two sections - a circular plate with a smaller cylindrical section extending from one end. The plate is decorated with three notches removed at regular intervals around its outer edge and it is pierced with an off-centre circular hole. The cylindrical section is rounded where it joins the plate, encircled by a deep groove behind this and then has a raised ridge around the outer end. There is evidence of a break in the centre of its outer end suggesting that it is a component of a …

A complete copper alloy finger ring of uncertain Roman to post-medieval date. The hoop is D-shaped in cross-section and undecorated. There is corrosion and damage around the edges. Simple finger rings like these were in use for a long period of time and without further diagnostic details only a broad Roman to post-medieval date range can be suggested. Diameter: 20.79mm, width of hoop: 2.44mm, thickness of hoop: 1.67mm, weight: 0.81g

A probably complete copper alloy unidentified object of uncertain date. It is T-shaped, consisting of a long arm, oval in cross-section, with a much shorter, flattened, rectangular section attached to one end. The outer end of the long bar may culminate in a break although this is extremely worn. The surface of the metal is heavily corroded. Because of the undiagnostic nature of the object only a broad Roman to post-medieval date can be suggested.

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.

A fragment of a copper alloy unidentified object of uncertain date. The fragment is roughly triangular in shape with very worn sides and appears to have been part of a larger object originally. There may possibly be some raised decoration on one face, although this could also simply be the result of corrosion. Length: 19.37mm, width: 10.23mm, thickness: 2.27mm, weight: 1.87g

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.

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 …

Description: A complete gold unidentified object of unknown date. It consists of a flattened strip with three longitudinal grooves across each face. The object initially appears to be a loop that has been squashed flat or a cut section of a longer strip, but upon closer examination the sides all appear complete and this appears to have been its original form. It is slightly distorted in places. Dimensions: Length: 18.22, width: 5.78mm, thickness: 1.72mm, weight: 1.62g Discussion: The object may be a component of jewellery or part of another object, but no means of attachment is obvio…

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.
