Cast copper alloy bracelet of unknown age – probably late Iron Age – Roman (100 BC-100 AD). The bracelet is formed from a cast length of copper alloy bar which seems to have been twisted in a vice. The twists for the most part are regular, although a series of stress fractures are evident in a number of places. It is possible that it has been cast – although the mould it was cast from must have been based upon a twisted example. The bracelet is broadly C shaped, with an open edge which is flanked by two bird head like terminals. In cross section is a relative regular oval. The te…

Broad period: IRON AGE
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Incomplete fragment from a cast copper alloy cosmetic mortar (also known as cosmetic or woad grinder) of late Iron Age to early Roman date circa 300 BC - 200 AD. The cosmetic mortar is incomplete - all that remains is the looped terminal and a small part of the grinding surface. The loop is cast integral to the body of the mortar and forms one of the terminals. Unusually for the type the loop has a uniform width and thickness; there is no form of junction where the loop returns and meets with the body of the grinder and no decorative motifs. The loop though the terminal is relatively …

Cast copper alloy fragment of unknown function – most likely to be part of a harness of later Iron Age or Roman date (200 BC – 400 AD). The fragment is cast in one piece; it consists of four circles conjoined on their edges to form an irregular quatrefoil in plan. In cross section the artefact is sub-rectangular. Through the centre of the quatrefoil is an irregular sub-rectangular hole, it is positioned at the junction between the four circles. The hole measures 5.4mm x 3.6mm. Each of the four circles differs in size, although they seem to be ordered with the largest example (diame…

Cast copper alloy pin or stud of probable later Iron Age or early Roman date 200 BC – 200 AD). The stud is complete consisting of a domed bi-convex head which tapers to a slight short shaft. The head is decorated with an incised pattern of a debased spiral formed from incised lines set around a central raised pellet or dome. The pattern is not well achieved being uneven and irregular in design. The shaft is an irregular square shaped section which tapers to a point. The pin is a mid brown green colour with a thick well polished patina which is abraded and laminating. The length of th…

A cast copper alloy ‘miniature’ knobbed terret ring of probable later Iron Age or early Roman date (100 BC - 200 AD). The ring is broadly D shaped in plan, with a D shaped cross section. At the base of the ring is a horizontal bar with an oval cross section. This bar has an old fracture through it and is distorted in profile. The bar itself is slight and much thinner than the ring, it is also slightly offset. The ring itself is thick with distinct angular faces; it is regular in shape forming a regular U shaped arch. The upper part of this arch is decorated with a series of five ev…

A cast copper alloy ring of unknown date, most probably Iron Age or early Roman (300 BC- 100AD). The function of the ring is debatable, but is probably either a belt ring or harness ring. The ring is circular in plan and has a distinct angular sub-triangular cross section; the section has its thickest part on the outer edge of the ring and is narrowest at the centre. The upper and lower surfaces have distinct faceted edges. There is no evidence of either cast or applied decoration and all casting residue has been removed from the surface of the ring. The internal edge of the ring is wo…

A cast copper alloy fragment from the chape of a scabbard of a later Iron Age (La Tène III) sword (c. 200-50 BC). The fragment is irregular in plan and profile with a large fragment of iron passing through the centre of the piece; this iron fragment is probably the remains of the sword blade. In plan the piece is broadly sub-rectangular with irregular edges; in profile it is also irregular. Down the centre of the fragment, on one face only, is a large D shaped ridge. This ridge terminates at the base of the chape in a rounded knop like projection which has been heavily abraded. One o…

Incomplete whetstone of probable Early Medieval or Medieval date (c.800 – 1400). The whetstone is formed from a very fine sedimentary mica rich sandstone or siltstone and bedding planes are clearly visible in the profile. The whetstone is broadly sub-rectangular in plane with slightly tapering sides, and is also sub-rectangular in cross section. The edges are slightly bevelled. A relatively small suspension hole has been drilled in the upper part of the whetstone; this has been achieved by drilling (probably using a bow saw / drill) from both edges which has created an egg-timer shap…

Object type: TOGGLE
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Silver toggle or fitting with globular knop on each side. Narrow body expanding at each end into a globule, creating an overall dumb-bell shape. Globules are of un-uniform size. Copper-alloy and bone examples of similar objects have been dated to the Iron Age, a similar shaped toggle can be found in Read (2005). An Iron Age object of this type is extremely rare. Analysis results of the toggle show that it is 97% silver the rest being copper, with traces of lead and gold; the amount of gold indicates that this toggle is not of Iron Age date, the manufacturing technique correspond…
