Post-medieval white-metal coated copper alloy dress fastener of abnormal form, bearing some similarity to Read 2008 early post-medieval single blunt-hooked clasps of Class A, but without close parallel in both its sub-trapezoidal shape and its decoration, and with a blunt T-shaped hook that might be considered a toggle.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Slightly more than one half of a post-medieval lead alloy button or cloak fastener with a missing loop and a thin bi-convex head moulded in the form of a sexfoil with a central boss, each foil being a deep tear-drop shaped recess flanked by fine cross-hatched moulded decoration.The break has revealed that the alloy has been cast around a very thin sheet of metal (perhaps copper alloy) which, when new, would have shone at the base of the recesses. The casting was not entirely successful as one of the three complete recesses fails to reach down through the thickness of the lead alloy to …

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast lead-alloy penny sized boy bishop token dating to the late Medieval or early Post-Medieval period, c. 1500-1539. This token type can be considered a variant type of Rigold's series III, tokens inspired by profile issue groats and halfgroats of Henry VII. However, his publication (1978) only lists this type in groat sized pieces. The token has been pierced at c 7 o'clock on its obverse face, presumably for suspension. Obverse: mitre within inner pelleted border, ORA PRO NOBIS. Reverse: long cross fourchee quartering shield, SANCT NICHO (the legend beginning at 6 o'clock)

A cordate flint handaxe of Lower Palaeolithic date (500,000 - 180,000 BC), the surface rather tumbled.

The other, flatter, face is rather smooth in a diagonal line from upper left to lower right. Flake removals either side of this are angled towards the edges. The pointed end is a lit…
