A lower fragment from a cast copper-alloy medieval to post-medieval chafing dish drop handle. In plan, the handle frame would have been sub-trapezoidal with rounded corners, the frame is rectangular in cross-section. What survives is the lower part, other than one corner which is missing, with a pronouncedly incurved centre. The frame has a dark-green/grey colour; the breaks are old and patinated. A parallel can be found in illustrated in Allen (1984; fig. 192; ref. 165); it also conforms to Lewis's Type B1 (Lewis 1973, 61-64) given a 15th-/16th-century date.

Object type: BROOCH
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An Iron Age La Tène IBa type brooch dating to the 4th to 3rd centuries BC, incomplete in so far as it is missing its pin. The brooch comprises a sprung head, a curved bow and foot with catch-plate. The brooch has been made in one piece. The head is formed from the top of the bow, which becomes thinner and circular in section forming a thick wire. This coils twice to the left of the bow (when in plan), loops over the top of the head and coils twice towards the centre. At this point the wire has broken, but would have formed the pin. Within the coils is a corroded crude bar in copper a…

Object type: COIN WEIGHT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy uniface weight for a noble. The weight is circular and flat with a raised design on one side only. The design is of a facing ship with fore and aft castles. It is 16.9mm in diameter, 4.1mm thick and weighs 6.28 grams, 96.9 grains. The metal is pitted in places, especially on the lower surface. A full weight noble would have weighed 108 grains between AD 1412 and 1464 (Withers and Withers 1995, 68); the earlier noble had a higher mass. Weights were normally made to the legal minimum weight which was slightly less and can lose weight through corrosion processes. This…

A broken and incomplete figurative copper-alloy mount of medieval date (c. 12th/13th century AD). The mount would probably have depicted a saint full length, by reference to similar items discussed below; only the upper half of the torso and the head survive. The figure is shown facing holding a book in their right hand, through which a rivet hole has been drilled. An old break has occurred below this, largely diagonal, but also having removed some of the right arm. The body of the object is sub-rectangular and convex. The head above is moulded and set forward of the mount. A nose and…

A cast copper-alloy front-piece from two-piece dagger scabbard chape of post-medieval (16th-century) date, broken in two unequal parts.

A post-medieval copper-alloy buckle with separate pin and stud chape surviving largely intact.

A virtually complete copper-alloy clog or shoe clasp of late post-medieval date (AD c. 1790 - c. 1850). The clasp is sub-rectangular in plan with an integral 'anchor'-shaped hook on the lower surface, abraded at one tip. At the opposite end the attachment hook has been broken off. The main body is formed of three groups of transverse bars, one centrally and one at each end, with recessed V-shaped protrusions between the. Each bar is decorated with two transverse grooves which thus create three ridges. These travel the length of each bar with the exception of that at the centre whic…
