Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Darlington

A Roman iron spearhead which can be classified as a Manning Type 3 (Narrow Blade with expansion at its base). The spearhead measures 127mm in length, a maximum of 46mm in width and 3mm in thickness. It weighs 47 grams. There is a great deal of debate regarding the function of standard tips. It seems certain that they are not spearheads as close inspection of well-preserved examples has shown not just that the sides are blunt but that they never had a cutting edge. Marchant 1990 has suggested that standard tips had a decorative function connected with the use of the spearhead as a symb…

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Darlington
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a copper-alloy object, possibly a vessel handle or pierced miniature spear dating to the Roman period. The object comprises the remains of a flat, circular end plate with circular perforation. Only half remains. The end-plate extends to a circular-section stem which is bent. The other end of the stem appears to be broken. The object measures 162mm in length. The end plate has a width of 12mm. The stem has a diameter of 4mm. It weighs 12g. The stem of the object is very long leading to the suspicion that this is a pierced votive miniature spear rather than a spoon.
