Record ID: NMGW3182
Object type: RAPIER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Swansea
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Tip of a slender rapier, which has been reworked and used as a short dirk. There are no ridges or ribs visible on the blade, which has a slightly flattened but rounded cross section. This suggests that the artefact was once a Group IV rapier (Burgess & Gerloff 1981, 62). It is not possible to assign this reworked artefact to individual type within the overall group since diagnostic features high up the blade and on the original butt have been lost. The top of the blade fragment has been reworked by flattening the blade, though without splaying it. A new butt was created by inserting t…

Record ID: NMGW3106
Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Swansea
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Fragment of a large iron vessel (cauldron?) consisting of a separately forged leg, plano-convex in section and with a decorative outer longitudinal ridge, and part of the vessel's base. Dimensions of surviving portion of the vessel's base 96mm x 72mm, vessel thickness 6mm, length of leg 45mm, weight 276.4 grams. Although cast iron vessels of this form were used until the early twentieth century the longitudinal ridge on the leg is similar to those decorating late medieval and post-medieval copper alloy vessel legs suggesting it may be of earlier date.

Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Swansea
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Crudely cast, slightly waisted, copper alloy vessel leg. Length 41mm, width 28-33mm, thickness 18mm, weight 77.4 grams. Identifying the vessel type that this leg is from is not possible. Presumably it was either a cauldron, skillet, jug or ewer. Close dating is equally difficult as the form of the legs like this did not change from the medieval period until the seventeenth century (Read 1995, 95).

Several cast copper alloy vessel fragments including the basal end of two vessel legs form different vessels but both plano-convex in section and with decorative outer longitudinal ribs; cast copper alloy rim fragments from four different wide and steep sided vessels (probably cauldrons); and a cast copper alloy rim fragment from a wide and steep sided vessel which includes an integrally cast suspension loop, the upper part of which contains a pronounced wear facet.

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Swansea
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Freestanding discoidal crudely cast lead, or lead alloy weight decorated with a cross motif. Diameter 23-25mm, thickness 6.5mm, weight 23 grams. Lead weights such as these could have performed a variety of functions such as unofficial weights and measures used by traders and merchants. Dating them is difficult, excavated examples range in date from the medieval period to the nineteenth century.

Object type: BUTTON
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Swansea
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Lead, or lead alloy (pewter), slightly domed button with a large attachment loop. The button is decorated with a moulded quatrefoil design. Diameter 14mm, weight 5.8 grams. Although lead is a soft metal, and therefore inherently unsuitable for use as a button, the ease with which it could be moulded ad its relative cheapness led to it being used for such a purpose (Bailey 1997, 38). Study of the flash lines on this example suggest that it was cast in a three-part mould. Comparable lead buttons are known from thirteenth century contexts in London (i.e. Egan 1991, 274, no.1376, fig.178)…

Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Swansea
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Complete cast copper alloy vessel leg. Part of the apparently integrally cast body of the vessel remains attached to the leg. Length 78mm, width 16-17 mm, weight 115.2 grams. Medieval to post-medieval. The surface of the leg is preferentially blackened in comparison to the inside of the vessel body; this "sooting" is a common phenomena and is due to oxidisation of the outer surface of the vessel through exposure to the cooking fire.

Cast copper alloy rim fragment from a wide and steep sided vessel (probably a cauldron). Surviving vessel depth 37mm, thickness 3.5-4.5mm, weight 42.1 grams. Medieval or post-medieval in date. Medieval cast copper alloy vessels are discussed by Egan (1998, 161-169); several post-medieval examples are noted by Margeson (1993, 90-94).

Object type: SCABBARD
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Swansea
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Cast copper alloy chape consisting of a U-shaped socket which is connected to an incomplete perforated terminal through a waisted constriction. The front of the chape is perforated by two small rivets which would have attached it to the scabbard. Part of the back and the lower terminal of the chape are missing. Much of the original surface is lost; however, there are traces of linear ornament on the terminal of the chape. Height 39.5mm, width 22mm, thickness 6mm, weight 9.8 grams. Chapes are terminals for leather scabbards which accommodated swords or daggers. Copper alloy chapes are …
