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…

The fabric of the pottery sherd is relatively soft and is of a uniform red / orange colour. There are a number of angular and sub angular burnt broken pottery incl…

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…

Incomplete fragment of cast copper alloy enameled decoration probably dating to the Roman period (50-450 AD). The fragment is an irregular oval shape in plan and slightly bowed (C shaped) in cross section. It measures 16.1mm length 14.4mm width, is 3.4mm thick, and weighs 2.23 grams. On the upper side of the fragment is an enameled design consisting of a circular ring of blue coloured enamel. This ring encloses a central circle. This circle has lost its enamel; however, it is likely that it would have been red or possibly white in colour. At the centre of this inner circle is a further…

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…
