Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Milton Keynes
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron spearhead, in quite firm condition but with part of the socket including the proximal end missing. The slightly bent leaf-shaped blade is narrow and elongated. Both its faces are flat, i.e. without a midrib. The socket is not split. Extant length 148mm. Width 17mm. The slenderness and the small size suggest the object is not a theatrical object, but that it may be "ethnographic", from somewhere outside Europe. The date is uncertain.

County: Milton Keynes

A roughly C-shape iron object that may have been joined originally into a circle. This consists of two strands of 3mm thick wire that open to make four almost elliptical holes. The finder feels that this object could be a finger ring but although iron finger rings are known from Roman sites these are very different from this example. Despite extensive research it has not been possible to discover what this object is.

Part of an iron lever with a forked end (broken). The lever has a slightly curved handle with a knobbed end. Near the forked end of the handle are two semi-circular plates with a circular rivet through them for attachment to another object. The lever appears to have pivoted on this attachment. There is a short section of straight handle after this point before the lever forms a square, branched terminal. The ends of this appear to be broken. The photograph used for recording is unclear but there may be another circular screw or rivet on the handle below the area of attachment. The fin…

A fragment of an iron padlock slide key with a sub-circular bit. The bit has three rectangular holes. The hole nearest the end measures 11 x 7 mm and the two above measure 8 x 7mm each.
