Record ID: BERK-9AAB4D
Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy double looped, or 'spectacle' buckle of the early post-medieval period. A little over half of the buckle is retained; the integral strap bar is missing the pin but iron corrosion suggests an iron pin. The frame is plain and undecorated. Similar buckles are illustrated in Whitehead (1996, no 317) and are dated to c. AD 1500-1650.

Object type: STRAP END
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy plate from a composite strap end of medieval date. The plate would have originally had a matching back plate with a forked spacer between the two plates. The plate is broadly rectangular, narrowing towards the terminal that has a very small projecting knop. There are two rivets located centrally at either end of the plate. Egan & Pritchard (1991:142) illustrate similar strap ends (nos.653 & 664), which are dated from c.1270-1350.

Record ID: BERK-9A854C
Object type: AWL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper alloy awl or leather working tool of uncertain date. The awl has a square-sectioned centre which tapers to a fine point at one end while the other end narrows into a flat chisel-like end. It is assumed that one of these ends would form a tang however either end would function well as a leather or possibly a woodworking tool. Most awls like this are dated to the Bronze Age however the form and function of awls changed little in 3000 years, therefore they could date to anywhere between the Bronze Age though to the medieval period. The patina on this example suggets a p…

Record ID: BERK-996FDA
Object type: COIN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A worn copper alloy halfpenny of George III (AD 1760-1820) dating to AD 1799 (ship issue) and minted in Birmingham (Soho). The coin has been altered into an object resembling a cogged wheel; the outer edges of the coin have been pinched out of the obverse in nine places. This gives the effect of a cogged wheel or circular saw blade; all of the pinches run in the same direction. It is unclear how these pinches were formed, possibly by brute force (hammering) or by heating the edge of the coin to make the metal more malleable. Its use is unclear. Spink (2006) 3778.
