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…

Fragment of a piece of later prehistoric metalwork, most probably a later Iron Age terret ring. The fragment is irregular in plan and cross section; it curves and tapers slightly from a rectangular sectioned bar to an oval section at an angle of less than 30%. If it were from a terret ring this would fit with the transition from base to loop. The patina is a mid brown colour and has substantially laminated revealing the metal beneath which has corroded. The fragment measures 31.2mm length, 8.7mm width and is 6.9mm thick; it weighs 7.31 grams

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…

Object type: COSMETIC MORTAR
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 …
