Cast lead-alloy weight, probably a spindle whorl dating from the medieval period, that is c. AD1200-1500. The weight is circular, with a large perforation in the centre that held the spindle. The surface is very worn. Unlike many other spindle whorls of the same date range, this example has a very distinct moulded decoration: There are five moulded flat knops on the outside of the whorl with incised (probably also moulded) lines between each two knops. Lead weights like these are common finds, but only rarely from excavated contexts which is why date and origin are difficult to pin…

Record ID: LANCUM-A45E02
Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Probable enamelled copper alloy mount or stud, possibly late Iron Age. The artefact has been affected by corrosion and on the undecorated face this corrosion may have removed all trace of any mounting that may originally have been there. The decorated face consists of a raised eight rayed cross, star, or flower, within a raised circular border. The rays are grouped crudely into pairs and the resultant cells were originally flooded with enamel, the residue of which is present in the form of a dull orange deposit. Hard to date with any certainty but likely to have been produced between c…

Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: ROMAN
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Large and heavy Roman silver finger-ring set with an intaglio. Most of the lower part of the hoop is missing, but is of rectangular profile which expands and swells to triangular shoulders and flat ovoid bezel. Around the top of the ring is a collar of gilding. The intaglio is a pale orange carnelian engraved with a figure of Victory crowning a standing figure of Mars with his head turned the right, unusually away from Victory. The surface of the ring is very tarnished, suggesting that it has been out of the ground for some time. Discussion: no good parallels can be found for th…

Post-medieval cast copper alloy spoon bowl with an oval perforation. The bowl is a pointed oval shape in plan and the stem was attached in a form of 'rat tail'.
