Object type: BUTTON AND LOOP FASTENER
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Wakefield
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An Iron Age Button and loop fastener of cast copper-alloy, with some remaining enamel. The object consists of a central cast body recognisable as a single piece button and loop, though the loop is now broken and only two small stubs remain. The front is circular and has a circular, flat bottomed groove that probably incorporated enamel at one point, though this has been subsequently lost except for possible small traces. Only the central section, separated by another, smaller raised circle of copper-alloy, retains an amount of red material.

An opaque light blue globular glass bead of unknown date, Iron Age to Modern, 400 BC - AD 1900. The object is 9.2mm in diameter, has a length of 7.4mm and weighs 0.79g. The central perforation has a diameter of 3.3mm. The bead was formed from a spiral of molten glass, visible as a slight spiral ridge. Glass beads are problematic to date. Whilst often considered to be Roman (see, for example, LON-00CE9C, and SWYOR-F91EF7) or Early Medieval, beads of this form have been in use from the Iron Age through to modern times, for example 'in spangles on lace making bobbins in the 19th century'…
