Two late medieval to early post-medieval copper-alloy thimbles, arranged one inside the other. The slightly damaged outer thimble tapers towards its convex top.

Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Milton Keynes
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Part of a lead-alloy personal seal matrix, dating from the medieval period. The surviving piece represents approximately one quarter (the top right-hand quarter of the die) from an originally circular matrix. The bottom part has an almost right-angled bend and an irregular edge, suggesting it has been deliberately snapped; the vertical edge, in contrast, is straight and has clearly been cut with a bladed implement. When printed, what remains of the device shows a figure facing right, possibly mounted on horseback, holding an upright sword in his right hand. An angled slash mark tha…

A post-Medieval stoneware Bellarmine jug (also known as a Beardman/Bartmaan jug). The body of the vessel is sub-globular, with a flat base and conical neck (damaged).

A Medieval copper-alloy strap-end. The object is comprised of two damaged, sub-rectangular plates, the upper of which is decorated with an incised design.

A Medieval copper-alloy single-loop buckle. The frame is trapezoidal, its rectangular-sectioned sides flaring towards the expanded outer side.
