Object type: BUTTON
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Small silver hemispherical element, shank or attachment loop missing. The function of this object is not clear. It has been described as a button fragment, which seems plausible, though the form is unusual for post-medieval buttons of the 16th and early 17th Century reported through the Treasure Act to date. Probably 16th Century.

Small heart-shaped brooch, set with marcasite, which is polished metal cut in a matter so as to resemble a gem. Where the clasp of the brooch touches the outer face, a piece of marcasite is now missing. The use of marcasite in jewellery, as a replacement for diamonds, becomes practised in the late 18th century. The object falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act.

County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Small silver bell, made of two halves cut from sheet and soldered together, pea inside. Engraved decoration all round top half. Whereas similar bells were sewn onto clothing as fashionable accessories in the late medieval period, especially in the 15th Century, bells of this kind were, in the 16th Century, attached to hawks and falcons by means of a bewit; found on collars for dogs and cats; as well as being an element in horse furniture. This bell is probably 16th Century.

Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Gold finger ring with square bezel, within which is set a stone. There is a slight reddish tint to the surface but non-destructive X-ray analysis has confirmed that this ring has a gold content of 89-92%, which is the equivalent of 22 carat gold. The stone, which is badly cracked, has been identified by Raman spectroscopy as quartz and could be referred to as a faintly banded agate. The d-section hoop expands at the shoulders, forming an openwork pattern of three prongs, all with geometric decoration. The ring weighs 8.84 grams. Stylistic features date this ring to 19th-20th centuries…

Two convex sheets: octagonal width 14mm, with roughly engraved rosette in linear border, and round diameter 15 mm; joined by rod, length 7mm; weakly stamped maker's mark (??)OD, in incised double-line border. The item is silver but likely to date from the (?)early/mid 18th-century, and almost certainly post-1709. It is therefore too late in date to qualify as Treasure.

Gold foliate accessory. It is made of fine pieces of gold, is broken in places and is therefore very delicate. Within a small circular recess to the front and bottom of this piece is green enamel. The presence of four loops at the corners suggests that it may have been sewn onto fabrics, though it was more than likely part of a necklace or bracelet. It is in the style of 19th-century revivalist jewellery and therefore is not classed as Treasure.

Surface metal analysis conducted at the British Museum identified the metal as brass, with no detectable precious metal. It is therefore not defined as Treasure under the terms of the Act.

Late Iron Age to early Roman brooch of Nauheim derivative type, made from a flat strip of copper alloy. At one end the strip has been wound into a spring; the chord passes under the bow and is then broken, so that the other half of the spring and the pin are missing. The surviving spring half has two turns and then widens into a bow 5 mm wide, which is decorated with a border groove down each edge. The bow gently tapers again, but the very end of the bow and the catchplate are missing (fresh breaks). Despite being small and flimsy, the brooch seems to be well made. 1st century BC to…

Fragment of narrow copper-alloy bracelet. Although both ends are broken, the curve of the bracelet is still obvious. It is decorated with continuous, slightly oblique, ribbing made up of quite broad grooves which reach right to the edges of the bracelet. The edges are not straight and parallel, but wiggle as if the more fragile edges of the grooves have become more worn than the more robust edges of the ridges. Flat cross-section. Quite corroded, with some parts of the surface missing. Maximum width 5 mm; uncurled length of fragment, 53 mm. Weight 2.12g. Roman, late third or fourth ce…

A fragmentary Roman spoon made from copper alloy with a white-metal coating and dating to the second or third centuries AD. The bowl must originally have been oval, but the far end is now torn away and too damaged to reconstruct its precise original shape. The handle is also incomplete, but appears to gently change from a circular cross-section to a tall rectangular cross-section; it then expands to a curve below, with a circular perforation, and an upper part decorated with V-shaped ribbing. The curved part then extends forward to attach to the back of the bowl in a long tail. Cru…
