Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast and wrought copper alloy bracelet probably dating to the post-medieval periods (1500-1700). The bracelet is formed from four sub-rectangular (rectangular with rounded corners) sectioned copper alloy strands, which possibly wound around a central core. However, as the circuit of the brooch is complete this cannot be substantiated. The four strands have been wound into a pattern; this is formed from two thicker pieces, (3.6mm thick) and two thinner (1.3mm). The two thinner pieces have been twisted together to form one strand and this has then been wrapped around the central core(?) …

A sherd of earthenware pottery probably dating form the medieval period (1350 – 1500). It is likely that the sherd is from a domestic storage or cooking vessel. The fabric of the sherds is a relatively hard earthenware with a number of small rounded and sub-angular grit, quartz, iron stone and burnt pottery inclusions. The fabric colour of this sherd is mid grey and the outer surface of the sherd is a mottled light orange colour. This two-tone effect has been caused by low temperatures within the kiln and is typical of early pottery. Due to the smallness of the sherd the diameter of …

Two abraded sherds of earthenware pottery probably dating to the later Medieval or early Post Medieval periods (1400 – 1550). Both sherds have a very decayed glaze present; this is a light yellow green colour and is probably a very decayed ‘Tudor’ green glaze. It is likely that both these sherds are from domestic pottery types such as jars or flagons. The fabric of both sherds is relatively soft and both exhibit a two tone (grey inner and orange outer) fabric colour. This two-tone effect has been caused by low temperatures within the kiln and is typical of pottery of this date. T…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete, but damaged, knapped (?), and ground axe head of probable later Neolithic date (2900-2100 BC). The axe is knapped from a mid brownish green black igneous rock, possibly a Gabbro. This rock could be knapped in a similar way to flint to form tools. However, the composition of the rock which forms the axe head is different to that of the majority of stone axe heads from the period. The axe head also has a thin seam of softer material probably a pyroxene inclusion. Pyroxene is common as an inclusion in many igneous rocks but is not often found in stone axe heads. The presence o…

Incomplete copper alloy two-piece bow brooch of Roman date (43-150AD). The wings, spring, pin and head of the brooch are missing. The bow of the brooch is broken below the head and is semi-circular (D-Shaped) in cross section. It tapers along its length and terminates in a pointed foot. The catchplate is present on the reverse of the brooch and extends from a point approximately ¾ of the way along the bow. The catchplate is broken and the pin rest is not present. It is likely that the catchplate was originally pierced; however this has created a weak spot and the catchplate has broken…

Cast copper alloy knife terminal / end-cap of probably early post medieval date (1500-1650). The end-cap is irregular in plan, sub-rectangular in profile, and an irregular hexagon in cross section. In plan the end-cap expands from a faceted rectangular base and terminates in an inverted crescent shaped projection. The base of the end-cap has a horizontal incision which divides the base into two parts. This incision is encrusted with an orange brown corrosion product. This corrosion probably represents where the tang of the iron knife fitted into the end-cap. The main decorative feature…

Denarius of unknown emperor of Roman date (27 BC - 240 AD). The coin is in a poor condition having been abraded in the ploughsoil. This has resulted in the loss of the edges of the coin. The coin is suffering from a laminating corrosion, however this lamination has revealed that the coin may possibly be plated, although the core of the coin seems to be silver rather than the usual copper alloy of contemporary copies.

Small glass vessel (unguentaria, phial or flask) of Roman date (100 – 200 AD). The flask is relatively squat with a sub rectangular shaped body and irregular shaped expanding neck / funnel. The base of the flask is flat but slightly sloped. There is a large concave indentation present on the base; this is due to the manufacturing / blowing process. Each of the four sides of the flask have a small oval indentation, presumably to allow the liquid to be applied in controlled drops. The glass walls of the flask are relatively thick with a large number air inclusions; these are in the sha…

Roman copper alloy bow brooch of unusual design, probably a derivative of a Headstud type and dating to the early 2nd century AD. The brooch employed a spring mechanism secured by lateral lugs at the end of very short wings, which would not have protruded much beyond the head.

The only decoration on the head is a short rectangular cast rib and a moulded oval at the junction with the bow, in place of the headstud. The Bow is at a right angle to the he…
