Object type: POWDER MEASURE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL

A post medieval cast lead-alloy powder charger cap of 17th century date. The cap is a sub-circular cup shape, with a flat base and vertical sides, and a lip around the rim. There is a single integral suspension loop at the base, which would have been used to secure the cap to both a gunpowder flask and a bandolier, via a looped cord (Courtenay, 1988, FRG Datasheet 11). The cap is mis-shapen and damaged, with old cracks and splits. The surface is plain and undecorated, with areas of light brown patina. Worn by British infantry musketeers, the cap formed the lid of a gunpowder charger …

Object type: SERRATED IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Early to mid Neolithic serrated implement made from a tertiary flake of pale milky grey translucent flint with small white inclusions. One side and the distal end have been worked into a fine saw. The serration was created by micro flaking (short, parallel, cross abrupt) from the dorsal and ventral sides. The side opposite the serrated edge has a single long, and three much smaller, deliberate removals for 12mm (similar to YORYM-697977). The area between this removal and the proximal has been blunted with invasive, scaled, low angle retouch 4mm inward from the edge. The tip has a high…

Object type: BROOCH
Broad period: ROMAN
County: City of Peterborough
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete copper-alloy Aucissa variant type bow brooch with a rolled-under head and no wings. The presence of early features on this brooch such as the white metal coating on the bow, indicate a very early date so some time within the first quarter of the first centuary AD. This brooch had a cylindrical cover to hold the axis bar or sping. The right cylindrical cover survives in a complete state but the left is now incomplete with only the lower part, just less than half, surviving. The complete cylinder is now filled with corrosion product probably/possibly of copper-alloy. The o…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A notably small post-medieval cast copper-alloy vessel foot and part of the leg. The leg is triangular in cross-section with rounded corners and with a flat back; it is broken off just above a transverse prominent collar with an old break. The foot is small, rounded and seemingly plain. The fragment has a dark-grey patina where it survives following corrosion. Crudely made cast copper-alloy vessels were widely used from c.1100-1800 for serving and cooking. Butler et al (2009, 4) suggest there were four main types of leg used. This is a type C which they suggest was already in use b…
