Object type: BEAD
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete sub-cylindrical decorated polychrome glass bead, with flattened ends (diameter: 9.1mm; thickness: 7.7mm; weight: 0.87g), dating to the Early Medieval period, probably 6th-8th century AD. The dark blue/black bead seems to have been splashed with a range of colours after the initial monochrome bead was made, including yellow, red, grey/blue and off-white. These colours have been applied irregularly and in no distinctive pattern. The hole which is slightly off-centre in the bead (created by a metal rod when the bead was made) is also of irregular shape, with the diameter being…

An incomplete polished stone axe, dating to the Neolithic period ( length: 75.3mm; width: 37.9mm; thickness: 21.1mm; weight: 82.06g).

A smoothed possible gaming counter, probably made of magnetite and dating to the Roman period (diameter: 30mm; thickness: 13.5mm; weight: 20.43g). This does not seem to be local material, but seems to have been worked/ smoothened to make the purposeful shape.

Two ceramic wheel-thrown rim sherds, dating to the Roman period, probably from the 2nd-4th century AD (thickness ranging from 9.9mm - 10.2mm; collective weight: 22.26g).

The other sherd has an off-white outer surface with a light grey/ blue fill. This sherd has not been fired as extensively as the other, but it also has a gritty fabric with frequent small inclusions.

A ceramic wheel-thrown rim and neck sherd, probably dating to the Medieval period (49mm x 40.3mm; thickness: 12.9mm; weight: 21.76g).

A ceramic wheel-thrown handle sherd of possible Midlands Purple Ware, probably dating to the 17th century AD (length: 34.4mm; width: 50.1mm; thickness: 23.2mm; weight: 33.64g).

Specific forms include jars, dishes, bowls and cisterns. Production centres for this ware are distributed…

Six clay pipe stems with a small part of the bowl remaining, dating from c. 1720-1820 (average diameter of stem: 8mm; collective weight: 20.23g). Each of these fragments has either a complete, slightly broken or missing spur below where the bowl meets the stem. In most examples, they protrude downwards at a near right angle, ending in a smoothed point. Slightly different spur points may indicate that the pipes were made in local and different production centres (Cleverdon, 1995, 13). All these examples are undecorated and are in a slightly worn but fair condition. Made from pipe clay.…

Three wheel thrown coarseware sherds (average thickness: 11-12mm; collective weight: 115.61g) with ridges or scar marks on the lesser glazed side indicating that other vessels were placed on top of or stuck to these vessels during the firing process. The glaze is dark brown - black with the inner fabric ranging from brown - grey to pink, with large gritty inclusions throughout. These sherds could be known as 'saggars' and are hard-fired crude and cylindrical vessels that were used to hold more delicate materials, or alternatively pancheons which are low large dished vessels. These v…

A small wheel thrown possible foot ring base and side sherd of Blackware (49.7mm x 43.1mm; thickness: 3.6mm; weight: 14.81g). There is glaze on both sides of the vessel, as well as blistering at one end, with one hole running straight through the fabric, indicating firing at high temperatures. The fabric is rather hard and reddish-grey in colour and has been glazed inside and out with the lead glaze probably drawing iron from the body. These vessels would have probably been fired inside a pancheon or harder vessel in order to withstand the high temperatures. This vessel dates from …

A small wheel thrown base and side sherd of Blackware (height: 43mm; diameter of base: 43.6mm; thickness: 5.3mm; weight: 21.79g). Probably originally in the form of a small cup with multiple handles, this is a poor quality sherd which has been reasonably well-fired due to blistering near the base. The fabric is rather hard and reddish-grey in colour and have been glazed inside and out with the lead glaze probably drawing iron from the body.
