Group of melted silver objects and an old button or weight (listed separately). The silver objects (2-5) were found encased in melted plastic box (1) & associated with other burnt objects as well as the button. It is worth noting that local tradition has it that there was a fire at a nearby hall. It is likely that this material was dumped while clearing up after the fire. None of the silver objects can be identified with any surety. However there appears to be a late Roman coin fused to one of the lumps of silver (5). It is not unreasonable to assume it was a coin attached to a silver…

A small fragment of gold, dished and decorated on the outside of the curve, possibly broken from some kind of vessel. The decoration appears to be a plant design, of probable late medieval date. The inner side is undecorated. The exact character of the object is uncertain. There is no reason to doubt that this object meets the 10% threshold required by the Treasure Act, or that it is more than 300 years old. As such it therefore qualifies as Treasure under the terms of the Act.

Cast blade of an iron axe, the socket end is missing from an old break and the blade is highly corroded. It is rectangular in cross section and triangular in plan. It is quite a small axe and very thick, 22.34mm. Axes do not change a great deal between the Roman and Modern periods and features that can suggest more precise dating, such as the socket shape and the way the blade joins the socket, are missing in this example.

Heavily constructed copper alloy lobed plate with two piercings through which domed rivets pass. Its date and function are yet to be determined with any confidence. At first glance it appears to be a fixing plate for a hinge. However this is unlikely, but not impossible, as both rivets appear complete and there doesn't seem to be a large enough gap for the plate to have been attached to anything wooden. It may have been originally mounted on a book, or been a form of strap end/weight, or some form of mount or fitting. Dates to anytime between c43 and c1900 AD. The length is 60mm, w…

County: Lancashire

A lead or lead alloy sphere of unknown purpose and unknown age. It is highly unlikely to be cannon shot for a couple of reasons. Firstly it does not conform to any known bore of the seventeenth century or later. Secondly, it is not solid lead as it is too light for its size. This latter fact also excludes a lot of the other usual uses for lead balls. The comparatively low weight may be due to the construction of the sphere or it may be manufactured from a lighter alloy. It may be part of larger object. If it is shot it is more likely to be for use in a pre seventeenth century firearm,…

Lead alloy, or lead, perforated circular weight or spindle whorl of unknown age. The weight has a circular perforation. It has an external diameter of 21mm, and the central perforation has a maximum diameter of 6mm. The weight has seen a lot of use and has suffered damage and wear. In the "Finds Recording Guide", Geake (2001, p66) points out that: "The function of lead weights would have varied, from spindle-whorls to fishing weights to trade weights." She adds that spindle whorls should ideally be circular and must have a central perforation (ibid.). It is possible, therefore, tha…
