County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete cast copper alloy sword belt hanger, missing its hook at one end, with openwork decoration in the form of a trefoil plate with three apertures: two teardrop-shaped and one heart-shaped. The plate then narrows to a bifurcate collar, and then tapers slightly to a bar which is rectangular in plan, profile and section, and broken at its terminus. There is a rounded knop beyond the ovoid plate, which probably extended to encompass a rivet hole at this end of the hanger, and there may have been another attachment plate at the opposite end where the hanger tapers and is broken.

Cast copper alloy uniface circular coin weight of a half noble.

Withers (1995) illustrates a similar circular coin weight with the ship and two lions on page 19, top r…

Late Neolithic to early Bronze Age olive/grey flint plano convex knife, knapped on a secondary flake.

On the dorsal face the first phase is invasive, scaled, and low angle. The second dorsal phase is long, sub parallel, and low angle. There is also subsequent retouch to keep the edge sharp but this is more variable in character. The first phase of retouch on the ventral face is covering, scaled, stepped, paralle…

A copper alloy 'beehive' thimble of two piece construction. It consists of the rolled decorated tube and a plain domed top. The decoration does not appear to be machined. It consists of seven bands of a cable motif, each going in the opposing direction to the two bands adjacent to it. There are remnants of what appears to be a gilded finish in the pattern. The top appears to have had a white metal finish, possibly silvering or tinning. The rim of the thimble has been largely lost, leaving an uneven edge. Dating has proved problematic due to the lack of a convincing parallel. Overall s…

Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Roman copper alloy finger ring with a glass or rock crystal setting. There are remnants of an applied finish, possibly niello or tar. The loop is incomplete. The construction and form of the hoop and bezel suggest a Roman date though an exact parallel is yet to be found. The possibility that it is a Post Medieval imitation of a Roman form cannot be ruled out. However it was discovered in an area with a history of late Roman finds and it seems reasonable to give it a date of between c200 and c410 AD. The length is 22mm, width at bezel 9mm, maximum thickness (bezel & setting) 5mm, ho…
