CURATOR'S REPORT Anglo Saxon silver stap-end. Description of find An Anglo-Saxon silver strap-end with four rivet holes, one of them still containing a flat-headed silver rivet. The front of the strap-end is incised with geometric ornament and curvilinear scrollwork resembling floral fronds along the edges. No traces of inlay remain, but there may originally have been niello. The back of the object shows green corrosion traces and is very scratched around the upper rivet hole on the strap-end's body. The appearance of the scratches suggests that this is recent damage. Impressions …

Object type: CLAY PIPE (SMOKING)
Broad period: MODERN
County: City of Southampton
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
The bowl from a clay pipe of modern date in the form of a male human head. It is an elaborate, joined bowl made in a three-piece mould; mould lines are visible on the sides and back of the head. The bearded man wears a close-fitting hat. Unfortunately, the person depicted has been able to be identified, although they have Arabic or Indian associations. It could have been that a maker's mark was lost when the bowl was broken from the stem. The distinctive red clay from which this pipe was made marks it out as being made in France, possibly at the Fiolet factory at St Omer. The large siz…

Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: City of Southampton
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small tertiary flint flake, undiagnostic, and so given a general prehistoric date. It is of a grey brown colour, with some patinisation resulting in a lighter grey patch on both faces, and a darker surround on the dorsal face. There is some edge damage which is estimated to have occured in antiquity, but the flake is in otherwise good condition.

Object type: PICK
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: City of Southampton
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint pick of Mesolithic (or early Neolithic) date, rolled and polished by water action. Both faces are bevelled, but one in a more definite triangular cross-section. There are removals all over the surface of the pick; no cortex is present. The butt is oblique while the cutting end is now rounded due to wear. Both longitudinal edges have been 'battered', a common feature on implements of this type. The light grey flint has become weathered, and in many areas has taken on yellow and orange hues from iron staining.

Object type: RAPIER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: City of Southampton
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An almost complete cast copper alloy Middle Bronze Age rapier. The butt is incomplete and damaged which makes the original shape difficult to determine. Two C-shaped incomplete rivet holes or notches lie in the upper part of the butt, which is where the handle would have been attached. The notches are spaced approximately 24.82 mm apart. Slight shadow (shallowing of the metal) of the handle is visible just under the rivet holes extending centrally to the top of the break. This widest point (49.52 mm) is at the shoulders. The blade extends c. 290 mm from the base of the butt and is ap…

Object type: CANNON BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: City of Southampton
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A post-medieval (c.1590-1690) spherical iron cannon ball of uncertain post-medieval date. The object weighs 970g and measures 63.3mm in diameter. The surface is pitted (some deeper than others) and dark brown in colour, with patches of orange corrosion in many of the deeper pitted areas. There is no apparent damage to the surface.

See full report by A Doherty in Walton and Flynn 2010. "Although all are undiagnostic bodysherds, they are clearly from a closed vessel, very likely to be a jar imitating the classic BB1 everted-rim form". "The excavators reported that the coin hoard was deposited within the vessel, however it is worth noting that perhaps as little as 10-20% of the vessel was recovered and that all of the sherds are from the mid body, with no base, rim or shoulder sherds present. Although the partially complete state of the vessel may be explained by modern disturbance, if deposited upright and truncat…

Triangular-shaped lead object with rounded corners and line decoration. Possibly a palm guard, although the surface decoration suggests it is a trade weight. The inscription is indecipherable, but its style suggests a 15th-17th century date.

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: City of Southampton
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A small flint handaxe of stained flint dating to the Middle Palaeolithic. It is sub-triangular in form. The object has a shallow S-shaped profile. It is covered by removals on both faces; the ventral face is far more intensively worked with far smaller removals than the dorsal. The sides are somewhat battered, while the distal end is broadly straight (this is where the axe would have been held). The removals have been smoothed a little by water action. The ventral face is of a largely orange hue, while the dorsal features off-whites and more brown colours.
