Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Copper-alloy finger-ring, now missing much of the hoop. The hoop has two breaks, one very fresh and one fairly fresh; it is biconvex in cross-section and a minimum of 4 mm wide. The surviving part shows that the ring was originally fairly large; the surviving dimension across the hoop is 29 mm. The bezel is oval, raised above the hoop, and measures 12 x 13 mm. It is engraved with two initials which are hard to decipher. When held one way up, the central initial is a double-barred A with the left-hand stem (on the impression) vertical and the right-hand stem curved. There is a sma…

Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Small copper-alloy belt mount. The centre is a domed rounded lobe with decoration of four horizontal grooves; vertical grooves run between the first and third of these, forming two rows of cross-hatched squares above a single horizontal groove. To top and bottom are smaller slightly rounded lobes, also slightly domed, each with a separate copper-alloy rivet. Similar mounts from London (Egan and Pritchard 1991, 1160-3) come from contexts of the second half of the 14th century.

Object type: HARNESS PENDANT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Large copper-alloy horse-harness pendant, decorated with gilding and enamel. It is a trefoil shape with the loop at the top between two lobes. At the corners, and at the angles between the lobes on the sides, there are smaller trefoil projections. Although the pendant is very corroded, the decoration can be partly reconstructed as follows. A border of red enamel outlines the trefoil shape of the pendant just inside the edge. There is a slightly skewed central stem of reserved metal, with triangular thorns, which splits into two just below the loop and curls outwards and downwards,…

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Gilded copper-alloy buckle plate. Rectangular, it measures 37 x 28 mm, and has a pin slot and frame recesses. The plate folds under at the hinge loops to form a short underplate. There is a rivet hole at each corner; the two nearest the hinge loops are matched by two in the underplate, and one of these retains a copper-alloy knob-headed rivet. The plate is very corroded, and the only decoration surviving is an engraved line (made either by linking punchmarks, or by rocking the engraving tool) which divides the hinge loops from the rest of the plate.

Object type: HARNESS MOUNT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Copper-alloy harness mount with heraldic decoration. Quatrefoil in shape with small right-angled projections between each lobe, it is now corroded and no enamel survives. The relief areas of copper-alloy consist of three crowns, one in each of the side lobes and the lower lobe, with an arrow in the middle pointing downwards. The feathers of the arrow can be seen in the upper lobe and the point is within the lowest crown. Off-centre on the reverse is a sturdy integral rivet. The arms are those of the Abbey of Bury St Edmunds, and the mount was presumably fixed to one of the abbey's…

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Socket from a candle-holder of branched double-socket type. 19 mm in diameter, it has a cylindrical part 23 mm long which has three panels of decoration; two recessed convex mouldings and a simple groove at the base. The socket then tapers and has another groove, before flaring out again. There is a stub on the base which looks as if it has been hammered down; this stub would have passed through a hole in the branch of the candle-holder.
