  • Thumbnail image of HAMP-1F6A8F

Record ID: HAMP-1F6A8F
Object type: BUTTON
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete post-medieval lead alloy composite button, missing its loop. It is biconvex in shape and hollow, with two blow-holes to the reverse. The front half is decorated with cast radiating lines from a central pellet. The spaces between the radiating lines are decorated with, alternately, a vertical line of pellets and raised transverse ribs forming a ladder effect. The button measures 16.5mm in diameter, 14.7mm in height and weighs 5.26g. Cf. LON-719EF2 and Read, 2005 (111), which the author suggests a late 16th-17th century date for.

A perforated conical lead weight of uncertain date, from the Roman to post-medieval period. The weight is conical in shape with a sub-square central perforation of 4.7mm by 4.3mm at the top and 5.9mm square at the base. The base of the weight is flat apart from some metal displaced by the boring of the perforation. The top of the cone is slanted. The surface of the weight is rough and has a well developed white patina. The weight measures 22mm tall, 21mm diameter at the base and 34.8g. Compare YORYM-86C4A5 and DUR-11F3F6.

Record ID: HAMP-1EBDD3
Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A post-medieval lead circular double-sided token, dating to c. 1500-1850. The token has raised bust on one side within a raised edge; it is uncertain in which direction the bust is facing. The reverse has a raised letter A placed off-centre; it has no raised edge. Lead tokens had a wide variety of potential uses such as tallies, gaming pieces, tickets, weights, etc. and are believed to have been locally produced; they are therefore difficult to date precisely. Those carrying initials are generally deemed to be post-medieval in date (1500-1850), those which seem to mimic medieval penn…

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Barnsley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead alloy possible spindle whorl of unknown date, Late Iron Age to Post Medieval. It is of Walton Rogers form B1 with two flat faces and straight sides, though the faces on this example are rather uneven, tending towards biconvex. The central aperture is only 3.4mm diameter, casting some doubt on this object's function as a spindle whorl. It may be another form of perforated weight. The lead has a smooth light grey patina. It is 22.4mm diameter, 7.6mm thick and 18.47g. See Walton Rogers (2007) Cloth and Clothing in Early Anglo-Saxon England, which suggests that whorls of this form a…

County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probably complete mount or fitting of Early-Medieval date, c.AD 470 - 570. The object comprises two rectangular terminal panels joined by an integral rectangular stem. Both panels have raised rims within which is zoomorphic decoration of Salin Style I. The upper half of the beast is retained in one panel, the lower portion in the second. The reverse is flat and undecorated with no evidence of any fixings. Casting flashes are present around the edge of the object where the metal has run during the casting process. This suggests the piece is either mis-cast or unfinished. The metal …

Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Doncaster
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead alloy token of post-Medieval date, about AD 1500 - 1800. It is uniface and the design is of a cross formed from two crossing rectangles with a raised outline, thus forming a square in the centre. The cross is bordered within a square raised line, and further raised lines cut across the corners, making an octagon. This fits into Powell Type 3, 12 or 14. The token has suffered some bending, causing stress lines in the patina, which is dark grey. It is 33.5mm diameter, 2.2mm thick and 14.68g.

A medieval (1350-1450) copper alloy composite buckle, incomplete in so far as it is missing its pin. The object comprises an oval lipped frame (the outside edge forming a triangular point at the centre) and an integral forked spacer plate. The internal measurements of the frame are 10x10mm and there is a transverse groove on the inside edge behind the lip (presumably a rest for the missing pin).

Object type: BRACELET
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Complete copper-alloy ring, possibly a Roman bracelet dating within the period c. 43 - 410 AD. The object is formed from a pointed-oval band. Surface detail has been fully obscured by harsh corrosion and wear from deposition near salt water. As a result, the surface is rough, with a patchy green and light brown patina and it is impossible to tell whether the band would have sported moulded decoration of the type commonly exhibited by bracelets of Roman date. Identification is therefore based on the form and size of the objects, which bears similarities similarly tentatively dated examp…
