Record ID: LON-599DDE
Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Medieval copper alloy finger-ring, dating 13th-14th century. The object is formed of a slender band with a lozenge shaped bezel. The band appears to have been soldered to the bezel. The bezel has a green glass fitting with a moulded decoration of lines radiating around the edge. The band has been broken and bent out of shape, with some of the band probably missing. The object is now in two parts, though this is recent damage. The metal has a mid-light brown pattination. No published examples are quite like this one, but finger-rings of this shape and style tend to date from the 1…

Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Post Medieval lead alloy token, dating to the 17th century. The token is biface, with a crescent moon on one side and the initials TC on the other. The crescent design can be seen on a token dating to the 17th century (Mitchiner and Skinner, 1985, plate 19 no.177). This is therefore a likely date for this token. Dimensions: diameter: 18.25 mm; weight: 4.04g. Reference: Mitchiner, M. and Skinner, A. 1985. English Tokens C.1425 - 1672. In Challis, C. and Blackburn, M. The British Numismatic Journal Volume 54 1985.

Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Post Medieval iron hooked mount or escutcheon, dating to the 16th century. The object is ovoid in shape with a small rounded projection at the widest end and a hook projecting from the narrowest end. There are two rivet holes, one at either end of the plate, both of which have the heads of the rivet and part of the shanks still in situ. Based on the curviture of the object it is likely from a vessel, with the hook pointing outwards. The mount has a mid-dark grey pattination with patches of light brown and orange on both sides and some light grey concreted material on the back of the…

A Post Medieval copper alloy strap fitting for a sword belt, dating to the early 17th century. This example is composed of the plate, which tapers from the top to the hook. Attached to the hook is a copper alloy ring. The ring has only been crudely finished with a fragment of copper alloy attached where it was attached to the adjoining ring during the manufacturing process. There are also casting flashes that have not been removed with a file. The upper edge of the plate has a pronounced curved projection at each corner. The plate is slightly plano-convex. There are traces of iron …

Object type: COIN
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An Iron Age copper alloy potin, dating 100-50 BC. This is a Class I potin being circular with a rectangular tab projecting on one side. The obverse depicts a stylised bust, formed of three crescents forming the head and nose, with a ring and dot motif in the centre for the eye. None of the crescents meet. On the reverse is a bull, butting left, with a line below and two crescents above. There appears to be a pellet underneath and connected to the body of the bull. The closest exact parallel for this is in Hobbs (1996, no. 705) though none of the early potins are identical. The object …

Object type: PILGRIM BADGE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a Medieval lead alloy pilgrim badge, dating to the 15th century. Roughly a quarter of the object remains, which would have originally been circular in shape. The object is decorated on one side only, with a border running around the edge and a foliate design that appears to form an oval shape just within the band. There appears to be writing within the border, though this is now illegible. In the centre is an image with radiating lines surrounding it, though now it is impossible to discern the central image. Below the radiating lines is an open circle, like the symbol om…

Record ID: LON-57ECBC
Object type: CHAPE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete polyhedral chape, probably dating to the Medieval period. The object is formed of a solid cast polyhedral shape with a small rounded projection on one end and an open flaring shank projecting below. The shank has been broken at the base and there is compacted material within. The object has a dark brown pattination. Similar examples have been found on the PAS database (SWYOR-B1FFB4 and LIN-C71A35), though often made of silver and none have the projection on the top. They can date from the Early Mediteval to Medieval period, though undecorated examples are likely to be…

County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Late Medieval ampulla, dating to the 15th century. The ampulla is circular with a flaring neck that tapers to a circular body and ends in a squared base. At the shoulder are two square handles, attached half-way up the neck and on the body. There are compass drawn decorations on both sides, forming concentric engraved circles. The object has a dark grey pattination and there is white concreted material on one side and in the mouth of the ampulla. No parallels have been found with the squared base, but this type of object tends to date to the Late Medieval period. Dimensions: leng…
