Record ID: KENT-AD90CA
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete probable ovate flint handaxe of Lower Palaeolithic date (500,000 - 180,000 BC), Description: The handaxe is incomplete and has a heavily tumbled surface. It was produced via bifacial working with one face being almost entirely destroyed by damage leaving it rough and pitted. The point is rounded and one edge of the remaining face is incomplete also. The flint is the characteristic light brown-orangey 'toffee' colour with some brown to light brown iron staining typical of Palaeolithic flint finds Measurements:79.65mm long, 57.03mm wide, 20.21mm thick and 84.75g in weight.

Object type: CLOTH SEAL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a cast lead armorial cloth seal. The fragment consists of a strip, cut or torn across the diameter of a circular seal, 32 mm long, 14.5 mm wide and 1.5 mm thick, weighing 6 g. The fragment is damaged at both ends, so the precise diameter of the seal is uncertain. The front face is decorated with a double-arched St Edward's crown over a Tudor rose, within a ring of pellets. The back face is strengthened by a thicker band of lead, 3 mm wide, across the diameter of the seal. Egan (1994) illustrates a complete circular shaped cloth seal with an apparently identical design on…

Object type: POINT
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible Mousterian point of Middle Palaeolithic date. Description: The point is roughly triangular in plan and cross-section, with an apparently facetted but end although this is heavily worn. The point is formed by long flaked removals with retouch heavily obscured by patination and recortication but appears to be long scaled low angle retouch. The conchoidal rippling on the flaking is substantial on the dorsal face while the bulb and conchoidal rippling on the ventral side is very subtle, indicating mixed technique used in its production. The flint is heavily patinated white with…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
One loop and the strap bar of a cast copper-alloy double-loop buckle with a trapezoidal frame. The fragment is 20 mm long and 23.5 mm wide, 3.5 mm thick and weighs 4.3 g. The upper and lower frame elements are 2.5 mm wide with bevelled inner edges. The inner edge of the remaining frame is vertical, with a pointed knop on the outer edge and ovoid knops at the corners. The pointed knop has a transverse groove which acted as the pin rest, but the pin is now missing. There are convex lobed protrusions at both ends of the strap bar, which is flush with the frame and trapezoidal in section. …

Object type: SPOON
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of the bowl of a copper-alloy spoon. The fragment is 22.5 mm in length, 21 mm in width, 0.5 mm in thickness and weighs 2.35 g. It consists of approximately two-thirds of the distal end of the bowl of a spoon, which has been torn leaving no trace of its attachment to the stem. The fragment is corroded on both faces with pitting to the inner, concave face. One edge still retains its original curve, despite slight damage, but the opposite edge is more damaged. Originally the bowl would have been an elongated tear shape. Although fragmentary, the bowl closely resembles three Rom…

Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint core of probable late Mesolithic date c.8000-4000BC. Description: The core is very roughly conical. The striking has left substantial conchoidal fractures, which indicates use of hard hammer technology. The removals appear to be quite small and vary in size and direction There is a concave side which may relate to an area of lower quality flint with inclusions and faults which may be why the core was abandoned. The flint is heavily mottled grey colour except for the patch of beige cortex. Measurements: 37.9mm high. 36.7mm wide, 34.99mm deep and 31.68g in weight.

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint borer likely of Neolithic to Bronze Age date. Description: The borer is sub-triangular in plan with three large and dressed striking platform. There is extensive short scaled low angle retouch along the mesal (sides) of the two dorsal faces, with striking coming in from multiple angles, primarily from the dorsal faces on the right side and from the ventral face on the left. The point appears to remain intact although may have been reworked.. The bulb of percussion and the conchoidal fractures are very pronounced which suggests hard hammer striking. The flint is heavily mottled…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy fragment originating from a stirrup strap mount of Anglo-Scandinavian attribution corresponding to Williams' Class A, type 8. Only the very bottom of the mount survives, which originally would have been triangular in form when complete. Each side of the mount demonstrates a 'C' shaped projecting zoomorphic moulding consisting the lower portion of an animal mask viewed in profile- with a pointed snout and lip lappet visible. These flank a plain inner surface on the main body of the mount, the only features visible on which are two circular rivet holes clogged with fe…
