Record ID: CORN-843648
Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete cast copper alloy stirrup strap mount of sub-Urnes style, named after wooden carvings in a church in Urnes, Norway, but too worn and incomplete to be sure of class and type (David Williams pers comm). The openwork section of the mount is circular in plan and plano-convex in profile with twelve uneven circular apertures. The four larger apertures around the outer edge of this section may have been used to rivet or sew the mount to a leather strap. The mount then tapers into a narrower neck that has three raised collars, and expands into a T-shaped terminal which appears to b…

Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy rim fragment from a bowl or cooking vessel with an internally bevelled rim that is triangular in profile and flush with the upper edge of the vessel. The body of the vessel curves downwards slightly to suggest a reasonably deep straight-sided bowl or a deep straight-sided everted rim, as seen on cauldrons, and the curvature of the rim suggests a diameter of about 280 mm. The bevelled rim itself is 4.5 mm thick which then tapers to the body which is 3 mm thick. Egan (2005) illustrates a similar example of a bowl fragment with a flared rim and straight-sided body on…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Glass cobalt blue bead, worn and pitted with mottled colouration within the glass. The bead is circular in plan and ovoid in profile, with a cylindrical central perforation and a lip on the edge of the hole, which shows that the molten glass would have been twisted and rolled around a central rod during its manufacture. Crummy (1983) illustrates a similar short oblate bead on page 33, Fig.34, No.562, which is dated from the post-Roman period. Roman beads in stratified local contexts are rare, but examples of blue glass beads have been found at Trethurgy, St. Austell and are illustrate…

Fragment of a cast copper alloy hinged T-shaped enamelled type brooch with just the head and bow remaining.

The bow is angled away from the head at almost a right angle, and has several recessed lozenges or ovoids at the front which probably ori…
