Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

Two body sherds from pottery vessels, probably ‘tubby’ cooking pots of late Iron Age or Early Roman Date (100 BC – 100 AD). One sherd is broken into two pieces. The fabric of the sherds is a relatively hard earthenware containing moderate Malvernian rock fragments, commonly up to 2.0mm in size and fine quartz sand. Fabric number 3. The fabric colour is a mottled orange grey. The diameter of the vessel / vessels cannot be estimated due to the size of the sherds. There is also not enough of the body of the pot surviving to give an estimation of the depth or overall form/shape of th…

Object type: TANKARD
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete cast copper alloy tankard handle of probable later Iron Age or very early Roman date (c. 150 BC - 100 AD). The handle has an openwork design that is similar to that seen on several tankards and can be paralleled against the design seen on mirror handles. The handle is fragmentary consisting of the upper part only; the break on the lower edge is old and patinated suggesting damage in antiquity. In plan the handle is irregular being broadly sub-rectangular; in profile it is bowed with an even (elegant) curve; the cross section is irregular. The upper bow of the handle i…

Cast copper alloy bead of probable late Iron Age or Early Roman date (50BC-200AD). The bead is cylindrical and cast in one piece with a moulded exterior surface. This decoration is broadly symmetrical with three centrally positioned circumferential beaded ribs which give the impression of rope like pattern. Either side of these central ribs the bead expands / swells and then contracts forming a large swollen ring. At either terminal are raised bands similar to the central circumferential ribs which are similarly decorated. The interior of the bead is plain and undecorated. The bead …

A cast copper alloy fragment from the chape of a scabbard of a later Iron Age (La Tène III) sword (c. 200-50 BC).

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…
