Record ID: SF-832E15
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An unidentified copper alloy object of probable medieval to post-medieval date. It consists of a curved, flattened strip, rectangular in cross-section. One end terminates in an abrupt break and the other in a flat anthropomorphic terminal shaped like a human face. One edge of the terminal has simple notches forming the impression of hair, nose and mouth and both faces are decorated with additional engraved lines forming hair and an eye. A small circular hole runs through the point where the terminal joins the strip and is filled with iron corrosion. The function of the object is uncl…

Record ID: SF-172DA5
Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete Roman to post-medieval lead spindle whorl. It has a flat base and convex upper surface. There are transverse scratches on the curved upper surface, although these do not appear to form letters or any distinct pattern. The metal survives in good condition. Undecorated spindle whorls were in use from the Roman to post-medieval period. The small diameter of the hole may indicate a date towards the earlier of this chronology. Diameter: 31.70mm, thickness: 6.37mm, weight: 38.63g

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An ?incomplete copper alloy unidentified object of probable Roman to post-medieval date range. The object has been moulded to form what appears to be a bunch of grapes with a tapering circular cross-sectioned arm extending from one side. The reverse is flat. This may be an individual mount or part of a larger architectural moulding. The tapering arm may have a break at its tip, but is too worn to be certain. Because of its fragmentary and undiagnostic nature only a very broad Roman to post-medieval date range can be suggested. Length: 36.90mm, width: 22.14mm, thickness: 13.52mm, weig…

Object type: AWL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete and very corroded cast copper-alloy awl or similar tool dating from the Middle Bronze Age to Roman periods, c. 1500 BC-AD 410. The tool consists a circular-sectioned rod with a thickened midsection, tapering to an originally sharp point at each end. Preserved in rather poor condition with a patchy greenish patina, it measures 45.59mm in length, 4.9mm thick at its midpoint, and weighs 3.46g. Awls of this form are difficult to date as they were used throughout a number of periods in an unchanging form. Found on both prehistoric and Roman sites, a wide date range has theref…

Record ID: SF-7488F0
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a copper-alloy unidentified object of uncertain date. It consists of a sub-rectangular main body, from which two oval cro-sectioned arms protrude. The main body has one face marked by a crude stamped cross, while the back face is flat and plain. The longer arm diverges laterally and bears a knob on its inner edge. Both the arms seem broken at the outer end. It might be a metalworking waste from casting process. Possibly a late medieval buckle dating to AD 1400-1450, cf. Egan-Pritchard (2002, p. 103, no. 471). Length: 34.36 mm Width: 32.80 mm Thickness: 3.71 mm Weight…

Object type: BEAD
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper-alloy bead, possibly Roman (AD 43-410). A cylindrical bead with a circular section. The bead is waisted at both ends creating a larger cyldrindrical central section and a collar on each of the bead terminals. The central section has been decorated with an incised line that goes around the whole circumference. This bead likely dates to the Roman period c. AD 43-410 (see: WMID4835) but similar examples on the PAS database have been dated to the Late Iron Age (NMS-C36251), although this beads lacks the ridged edges to the central section of the bead that is often seen o…

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Three separate copper-alloy rings of unknown date. A) This undecorated ring weighs 1.90g. It has an approximately circular shape with maximum external diameter of 25.9mm. The loop has an oval cross-section of 2.6mm width and 2.1mm thickness. B) This undecoarated ring weighs 1.66g. It has a slightly oval shape with external measurements of 26.6mm length and 23.9mm width. The loop has a cross-section that is oval in places veering to circular else where on the circumference. This cross-section has a maximum width of 2.5mm and thickness of 2.3mm. The narrowest point of the loop, probabl…

An incomplete unidentified copper-alloy object of Unknown date and uncertain function. This object is a handle or loop which had four projections. The loop is circular in plan, flat on both faces and bevelled internally on both faces. It has an outer diameter of 17.5mm and an inner diameter of 10.0mm. Between the handle and projection, a collar is oval in cross-section and measures 10.0mm x 9.0mm. There were originally four projections. The existing projection is incomplete and the other three are missing due to breaks. Scars formed by the breaks can be seen where the projections wer…

Record ID: CAM-B04EE8
Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A sub-oval shaped pierced lead object of unknown date, which was probably used as a weight. This artefact weighs 19.59g (0.69oz). The external oval dimensions are 31.7mm x 25.9mm. Both sides are uneven but slightly convex giving the artefact a maximum thickness of 5.0mm. An irregular shaped sub-oval aperture is present at the approximate centre of the object. This measures 8.3mm x 5.4mm. The lead around the edge of this aperture is recessed creating a narrow ledge of c.1.6mm width. If this object was not used to weigh other items and instead was held in place, to something else, with u…

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of copper alloy metalworking debris of uncertain date. Very irregular in shape with a heavily pitted and corroded surface. Undiagnostic debris such as this can only be assigned a very broad Bronze Age to post-medieval date range. Length: 19.35mm, width: 15.10mm, thickness: 7.94mm, weight: 6.92g
