Medieval or Post Medieval copper alloy foot from a cooking vessel probably dating to AD 1200 to 1650. The foot is trapezoidal in section and with three narrow ribs on the outer surface. The piece measures 60.7 mm in length, 35.2 mmin width, 26.7 mm in thickness and weighs 147.03 g. Cast copper alloy vessels were widely used from AD 1200 to 1700. Legs and feet are the most commonly recorded find and Butler et alii (2009, 4) suggest there were four main types of leg used. This is an example of Type A which seems to have been in widespread use in te medieval period with some examples con…

Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small uniface lead token of post-medieval date (c. 1500 - 1700 AD). The object is a round disc with a design on one side. Unfortunately, the surface is very worn and much of the design is now obscured. What can be seen looks to be a Tudor shield in the bottom right corner of a larger design, perhaps a coat of arms. The object is light brown in colour. It is 11.62mm in diameter, 1.34mm in thickness and weighs 0.8g. A parallel example on the database may be KENT-2A8BBD.

An incomplete, copper alloy, possible token of possibly the Post Medieval period, dating from c. AD 1500 - AD 1800. The token has been broken around the edge, and would have been circular in plan.

Cast copper alloy harness fitting of Medieval date (1250-1400). The fitting is incomplete and represents only one broken element of a larger composite piece. The extant fragment is broadly rectangular in both plan and cross section. In design it is probably best described as a slotted bar which would originally have held a pivoting central spindle upon which enamelled and gilded harness pendants would have been displayed. Only one arm of this bar survives being broken across a pierced oval tab positioned at one edge. From this broken edge the bar tapers in both thickness and width term…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy 'Winchester style' strap end of later Early Medieval (10th - 11th century) date. The strap end is incomplete and the upper and lower faces are lost. The damage appears to be old as the breaks are either corroded or patinated. Originally the strap end would have been rectangular (tongue shaped) with a rounded base and riveted attachment plate. The stepped attachment plate is lost and broken across the rivet holes whilst the rounded terminal has lost its projecting point. A thickened transverse rib separates the rivets from the body of the strapend. The body of the st…

Four Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age flint scrapers, probably dating to c. 3,300-1,600BC. 1. A thumbnail scraper worked from a reused primary or secondary flake of grey-brown flint; cortex covers those areas of the dorsal face which do not exhibit retouch, c. 60%. The flake has no clear point or bulb of percussion, with one facet of the dorsal face at the proximal end and the ventral face much more heavily patinated, suggesting the reuse of an older tool. The dorsal face exhibits long, scalar retouch, abrupt along the left edge, becoming semi-abrupt at the distal end and right edg…
