  • Thumbnail image of CORN-2D9AE8

Record ID: CORN-2D9AE8
Object type: MULLER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of greenstone cobble, triangular in plan, C-shaped in profile and semi-circular in section. The upper surface is rising at an 80-70 degree angle to the top of the stone, which would have been quite rounded, and the base has been ground flat, with two separate smooth-worn facets on the upper and lower faces, probably from use as a rubbing stone. This is one of a group of cobbles found in the same area, made of various materials, that were used as domestic artefacts such as mullers, rubbers and whetstones. All of these would be at home on a Middle Bronze Age settlement. Unfort…

  • Thumbnail image of LIN-2AD384

Record ID: LIN-2AD384
Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A shield-shaped cast lead weight, perhaps a trade weight, probably dating from the medieval period. The rally record does not record the mass of this object as it exceeded the maximum measurable on the scales. Given that it exceeded 200g, it may be equivelent to half an averdupois/avoirdupois pound. Also known as a 'wool pound', this measurement came into general use in the 14th century. The weight has a raised field in the centre; other examples on this database feature heraldic designs within this field, e.g. YORYM-529DB8.

  • Thumbnail image of LIN-2A7B54

Record ID: LIN-2A7B54
Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A medieval copper alloy mount. The object consists of a flat oval plate with central circular attachment hole and a flat hook, with traces of gilding remaining on the surface. The mount is somewhat similar to hooked tags of Read's class A type 2 (Brian Read 2008: Hooked-clasps and Eyes, p.14), which date to the Early Medieval period. However, the presence of gilding and also the shape of the hook suggest a later date.

Large granite cobble, used as a complete well-worn muller, oval in plan and plano-convex in profile and in section.
