Medieval gold pendant. A rectangular gold pendant with a suspension loop at the top and projecting pins at three of the corners. The fourth pin has been pushed inside the pendant. One side is crudely engraved with the head of Christ and the other with a half-length image of Christ as the Man of Sorrows. The pins are likely to have been designed to hold pearls, which have perished in the ground. Metal analysis conducted at the British Museum established the gold content to be 83% gold.

Description: An incomplete circular gold setting, originally with a domed cloisonné garnet setting. The circular backplate is framed by a thin (0.4mm) outer and thicker (1.1mm) inner beaded wire. The thicker wire is carefully made with narrow even beads, but the thin wire has more oblique beads and many Aquätorschnitte, no doubt reflecting the difficulty of manufacturing such extremely fine beaded wire. Part of the narrower wire has broken away and survives loose. The central cloisonné setting has an outer upright strip which in side view is slightly bent over to retain the garn…

Description: A small circular gold object, probably a pendant. The object has a backplate apparently made from a number of smaller pieces of gold, which is framed by a gold strip set on edge, 1.5mm wide, which runs around the edge to a butted join at the top. Within this is a two-ply twist of gold wires, c. 0.5mm in diameter, which forms an inner frame and also has a joint at the top. Here the twist meets three more two-ply twists which extend from the top edge of the disc vertically down into the middle. This appears to form a neck, as it ends in a raised animal head made from solder…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Coventry
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small worn copper-alloy token or coin that has traces of silvering remaining. The object is too far worn for certain identification, although it appears to bear a bust facing left on the obverse. Although worn, the style of the head appears post-medieval to modern. There are abstract linear markings on the reverse which are reminiscent of designs seen on early Anglo-Saxon sceattas. However, it is much more likely that this is a post-medieval token, particualry given the apparent bust on the obverse. Unfortunately, the wear on the object prevents closer identification.

Object type: PIPE (SMOKING)
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Coventry
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two fragments from post-medieval clay pipes. It is uncertain whether they are from the same pipe. One is a stem fragment, 11.8 mm in diameter with a bore hole of 1.6 mm. The second fragment includes the stem, which has a diameter of 12.2 mm and a bore hole of approximately 2 mm in diameter. This fragment has a small portion of the bowl remaining which rises abruptly from a long pointed spur which is slightly forward projecting. The presence of this spur and the relationship it has with the bowl suggests that the pipe is probably of mid-18th century in date.

Four sherds from what is probably an 18th century drinking vessel, probably a mug. Three of the sherds appear to be Staffordshire 'mottled ware', and have a dark brown lead glaze. Two of these have lateral ribbed decoration and fit together so are clearly part of the same vessel. A third lacks the ribbed decoration but probably also formed part of the same vessel. A fourth sherd has similar ribbed decoration and has a brown mottled glaze, although this is paler and so is probably from a different vessel. It is possibly also Staffordshire 'mottled ware', but may possibly have been over…
