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: WEIGHT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead Weight. Cast discoid weight with bevelled edges, thicker to one side than to the other, grey and unpatinated. The mass does not correspond with recent systems for the measurement of weight, though it does equal 19.7 Viking-Age Scandinavian units of 4.07gms for the weighing of bullion. A discoid form is known for weights of this period, as from Cottam, East Riding of Yorkshire, though the fresh state of the metal must introduce significant doubt as to whether this object saw use at that early date. Suggested date: possibly Early Medieval, 850-950. Diameter: 39.0mm, Thickness: 8.1m…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper-alloy swivel strap fitting of Medieval date. Only one loop survives, the remainder is missing due to old breaks, now worn. The loop is D-shaped in form and section, tapering at both sides in stylised zoomorphic terminals.

Object type: HARNESS PENDANT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Medieval copper alloy horse harness pendant. The item is shield shaped in plan. The front face has a slightly raised surface which possibly depicts a lion rampant. The reverse face is plain. There are no traces of enamel on the surface. The top narrows to a short point- this presumably was the attachment loop for suspension but it has now partially broken away and is worn. This harness pendant is particularly small in comparisson to other pendants, and it is possible that this was used for on a smaller animal rather than a horse (Brian Read, pers comm).

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…
