The mount is square in plan, however a corner of the mount is missing. Covering the majority of the upper surface is a circular dome decorated with four radiate ridges forming a 'X' shape. At the apex of the dome is a dome-heads rivet which has been flattened on the reverse. The mount has a border which has been engraved and consists of an irregular way line with an inner irregular 'line'. The upper surface has gilding evident. The reverse of the mount is undecorated and is convex. The thickness of the mount at the edges is 2.78mm, however the thickness of the metalwork at the dome is …

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…

Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint leaf arrowhead (length: 34.1mm; width: 21.9mm; thickness: 6.5mm; weight: 5.14g), dating to the early-late Neolithic period between c. 4000-2200 BC. The arrowhead has been extensively re-touched along the edges and has a rounded but flat base heading up to a point in a tear-drop shape. This example looks very similar to those classified as Types 1A & 2A in Green, 1980, pages 69-70. The arrowhead is in a good condition.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A slightly incomplete and broken hollow-based arrowhead (length: 22.3mm; width: 19.4mm; thickness: 3.4mm; weight: 1.28g), probably dating between 2500-1400 BC. The arrowhead has been extensively knapped with areas of re-touch along the egdes. One of the barbs is slightly incomplete, but it is difficult to identify whether this is a recent break. Many of these arrowheads appear in Ireland and the distributional evidence suggests that some of those found in Britain were either imports from Ireland or local copies. Only one certain hollow-based arrowhead in an associated context occur…

Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two wheel thrown rim sherds of Roman grey ware (thickness ranging from 10.7mm - 15.8mm; collective weight: 41.96g). Both sherds would have originally been part of different shaped vessels. One of the sherds seems to represent a gritty thick straight-sided vessel with small frequent inclusions. The sherd has a slight lip protruding outwards and inwards at the rim, while the other sherd has a smooth curved structure with a significant lip protruding outwards at the rim and expanding outwards below the neck and may represent a small rounded probable bowl. Both sherds have patches of o…

Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small sherd of Iron Age pottery (28.5mm x 27mm, thickness: 9.5mm; weight: 5.54g). A hard and fairly thick probable sand-tempered fabric with a smooth fracture and a small even distribution of quartzite throughout. The outer and interior surfaces are fairly rough and a dark grey, black colour. This sherd is very similar to examples found during excavations at Gussage All Saints in Dorset that have been classed as Fabric A/B. From these other examples, we could suggest that this sherd may have come from a bead rim vessel or a flat rimmed barrel jar. In general, these vessels were…

A small sherd of late Iron Age pottery (35mm x 41mm; thickness: 8.5mm; weight: 14.00g). A fairly smooth, hard and thick probable sand-tempered fabric with large inclusions throughout and protruding out of the surface. The sherd is a light brown/ red colourwhile the inner surface is almost black in places. This sherd is very similar to examples found during excavations at Gussage All Saints in Dorset, particularly the type classified as Fabric A/C (Wainwright, 1979, pages 49-51). From these other examples, this sherd may have come from a bead rim vessel or flat rimmed barrel jar. …

Broad period: ROMAN
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A wheel-thrown base (and side) sherd of probable Mancetter-Hartshill mortaria (54mm x 56mm with a thickness of 11.5mm at the edge of the base; weight: 45.79g). The sherd has a fine-textured and powdery fabric with an off-white core and inclusions of fine quartz and occasional red-brown and white particles grit. The grit seems to be fairly worn which may indicate that the vessel was used to a fair extent. This type of mortaria has its main source at Mancetter and Hartshill on the Warwickshire/ Leicestershire border, where many kilns have been recorded and excavated. Unfortunately, wi…

The whetstone is made of a fine silt stone, possibly from the Welsh borders. In plan the whetstone is an elongated trapezoidal shape. The two long side edges are not quite parallel. The wide lower edge is slightly rounded and abraded, but maybe the original edge. The opposite edge is a broken edge. The upper surface of the stone is smooth and the edges rounded, and tapers in depth towards the lower edge. The reverse is a flat face, but is not a smooth as the other face.

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.…
