Record ID: GAT-80F971
Object type: PIN
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Isle of Anglesey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable Early Medieval pin head. The object is sub-spherical globule with three circular facets/dips and a flat base. The head has been truncated from the shaft. The shaft break is worn, possibly indicating it was broken in antiquity. The three circular facets/dips were possibly for insets of some kind, eg: enamel. Pins appear to have declined in usage in the late early-medieval period with the most typical type being Anglo-Scandinavian or Irish. Given the location of the find and the style being characteristically similar to Irish pins (Armstrong 1922, 73), it can be tentatively…

Object type: MUSKET BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Isle of Anglesey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable lead Post Medieval musket ball. The object is spherical with two prominent circumferential bands. The ball is white in colour with a mostly smooth patina. The bands running across the ball could have a number of origins: The ball may have been fired. For some, the bands indicate the ball was squeezed against the inside of the muzzle during firing. The bands may also be associated with a specific type of rifle, eg: a two grooved rifle, which can leave a distinctive raised strip around the circumference (Foard 2009, 13). The bands may have formed during the casting proces…

Object type: COIN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Isle of Anglesey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy cartwheel penny from the reign of George III dating between 1760 and 1820. The coin has a raised rim on both faces and is moderately worn. The obverse depicts a bust laureate facing to the right. The obverse rim inscription reads: GEORGIUS III D.G. REX. The reverse depicts Britannia seated to the left. The reverse description is partially faded but appears to read: BRITANNIA 1797. The coin appears to be a second issue (Skingley 2007, 398). During the second half of the 18th century very little silver or copper was minted. Matthew Boulton's 'cartwheels' in 1797 prod…

County: Isle of Anglesey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy trade weight of post-medieval date. The front face of the weight is circular in plan with a raised rim. It has a stamped circle in the center which may indicate it was turned on a lathe. Surrounding the circle are three motifs; a dagger, the shield of St George, and a third motif which is indiscernible but may represent an ewer. The reverse is flat and plain with original file marks. The dagger symbol indicates that the weight was stamped in London. The ewer denotes the weight was approved by the Founder's Company in London. It is not possible to discern a preci…

A flint discoidal 'thumbnail' scraper dating to the Neolithic to Bronze Age period (c. 3000-800). Formed on a primary flake of opaque orangish-brown flint. The bulb of percussion is clear on the ventral face with no apparent ripples. Parts of the cortex are apparent at the proixmal and distal ends on the ventral face. The dorsal face is mostly covered with cortex, though a small section at the distal end shows evidence of retouch. The removals are mainly long, scaled and done at a low angle. The overall dimensions are as follows: 32.18mm in length, 40.73mm in width, 9.71mm in thicknes…

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Isle of Anglesey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy buckle-plate component of probable Medieval to Post Medieval date (c. AD 1200 - 1600). The object shares similarities to the forked spacers of Medieval composite buckles (see Whitehead 1996: 36-7), upon which would have been attached sheet plates. This example, however, is rectangular in plan with the two prongs of the fork joined by a straight vertical bar just before they taper to slightly splayed out sharp points. At the opposite end of the object is a hollow cylindrical bar, which may have been attached to the buckle frame. The hollow recess is now filled…

A complete lead weight of unknown exact date, though could date between the Roman and Post Medieval periods (c. AD 43-1800). The weight is cylindrical in plan with an expanded body and has a central circular perforation running through the middle of the object. Lead weights without any contextual information are difficult to date accurately due to their form and use remaining little changed from the Roman to Post Medieval period. Similar examples recorded on the PAS database include: BH-639BEA; HESH-CEA156; and NARC-F9F7EC. The overall dimensions are as follows: 31.56mm in length, …

Object type: HOOK
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Isle of Anglesey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy hook of likely post-medieval date, possibly part of a swivel hook. The hook is sub-square in section aside from the bulbous base which is sub-oval. The bulbous base of the hook has been truncated. The shaft, extending from the bulb, gradually tapers into a curve to form the hook, terminating at a point. This point may originally have extended further. The hook is possibly part of a swivel hook, however due to the incomplete nature of the find it is not possible to conclusively say. Swivel hooks were used for a wide variety of purposes to hold a variety of items includ…

A copper-alloy jew's harp of post-medieval date. The harp is mostly complete missing only the iron prong that was plucked to produce the note. The object has an oval loop with two arms which taper to a point. The harp is worn with the arms being slightly bent and misshapen. Jew or Jaw Harps have been around for many centuries with the most common found being of 17th or 18th Century date (although medieval examples are also discovered).

County: Isle of Anglesey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Roman copper-alloy coin with considerable wear. The obverse depicts a left facing emperor with beard and no crown. It is not possible to conclusively identify who is depicted due to the coins condition; however they do bear a resemblance to Philip II, 247-249 AD (Sear 1981, 232). The reverse has considerable wear and it is therefore not possible to identify any markings. The margin of the coin, while present, has deteriorated too much to be eligible.

A silver halfpenny of medieval date. The obverse depicts a king, either Henry III, 1216-1272 or Edward I, 1272-1307. The reverse of the coin depicts half of a voided long cross with three pellets in each quarter. Under Henry III the long cross was introduced in 1247 to help safe guard coins against clipping (a common practice at the time) (Mitchell & Reeds 1997, 94). During Edward I rule, long crossed coins came in two variations; Group VI which were crude in style, and Group VII which were more refined. In 1279 long cross coinage was abandoned (Mitchell & Reeds 1997, 97). Th…
