Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron spearhead of probably late Medieval date. The blade is complete and a broad leaf shape with convex curved sides widening evenly form the point to the rounded base of the blade. A rounded rib runs from the socket about half way along the length of the blade on both sides; the ribs thicken towards the base but appear solid. The blade is otherwise flat and even in thickness. Due to the level of corrosion it is hard to identify the width of the sharpened edges, if any. The socket is conical and tapering, continuing the line of the ribs but only hollow until it meets the blade. The end…

A large forged iron horseshoe of probable seventeenth century date. The shoe has a deep fullered groove with turned down calkins and is deeply concave to the hoof side and convex to the ground. Both branches are equal with probably four nails to each branch. Five corroded nails are in situ but it is unclear if they are T-shaped, but with a fullered groove it is probable. Usually there are nails to the toe section as examples illustrated in Ivan G, Sparkes, Old Horseshoes. page 19. The weight and size suggest this is probably a draught shoe. Length of shoe: 146.02 mm.
