  • Thumbnail image of LVPL-344F9C

Record ID: LVPL-344F9C
Object type: RING
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy ring probably dating to the medieval period. The object is circular in plan and hexagonal in cross-section. The ring varies in thickness where the object has worn, probably due to wearing against another connection. It has a mid-brown patina. Notes: Plain rings of such proportions have often been suggested to be Medieval or Post-Medieval harness rings (Geake 2001, 74), though they are typically un-diagnostic.

  • Thumbnail image of LVPL-33E3A4

Record ID: LVPL-33E3A4
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An lead alloy object of uncertain function. The object is circular in plan and is D-shaped in cross-section. The flat face is rough and uneven with no visible pitting. Due to its undiagnostic nature it cannot be dated closely however the condition of the lead suggests a Post-Medieval date is likely. The object may have functioned as a palm guard however there are no diagnostic features. Palm guards were for use by a leather worker to protect the palm whilst stitching. Bailey (1995, 64-65) dates such objects to the 17th century onwards.
