County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount of late early-medieval to medieval date (c. late 11th century AD). This tapering pear-shaped mount can be classified as a Williams Class A, Type 10A mount, based on its decoration in the English Urnes style. It is solid, of a hollow convex form with a common right angle flange at its base (Type A, Williams 1997, 25), solid and offset at the sides.The base of the mount's front has been perforated twice, with the two iron rivets surviving corroded in situ. Opposite the base is the rounded apex loop which similarly retains an iron rivet corroded…

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A post-medieval cast copper-alloy double-looped buckle, incomplete in so far as it is missing its pin. The frame is formed of two oval loops with a central narrowed strap bar of trapezoidal cross-section. Possible traces of iron corrosion product at the strap bar suggest that the pin was made of iron. The frame is 'D' shaped in section with a flat back and rounded front. There are projecting circular knops at the outer corners of the frame on both loops and rounded knops at the top and bottom of the strap bar. The pin is missing. It measures 35.4mm long, 24.2mm wide and 2.6mm thick. I…

A damaged and incomplete cast copper-alloy mount, possibly a propeller shaped belt stiffener of late Roman date. The mount consists of a central circular element (diameter 16.4mm) flanked to one side by a sub-rectangular tab. There is a transverse break at the circumference of the roundel where a possible equivalent tab might have emerged. The roundel is decorated with longitudinal ridges, those towards the edge curved to follow its shape. The grooves between are decorated with incised rocker arm. The tab begins with a transverse ridge, beyond which the main field has two longitu…

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A damaged and incomplete copper-alloy post-medieval buckle plate. The plate was formed of one copper-alloy sheet, cut and bent over on itself. It is broken in half, at the point where it would have looped round the buckle frame. From the broken point it continues with plain rectangular tabs on either side before narrowing to a waist of 7.7mm. The squared off terminal is flared out at 11.9mm wide. In addition to this hole at the terminal there is another hole central with the widest point; neither rivet survives. No decoration is visible on either surface. The metal is a general…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A post-medieval cast copper-alloy (latten) spoon bowl, detached from the stem following old damage. The bowl is sub-oval with a wider, more squared off end near the stem (the shoulders) and fairly straight sides. There is a maker's mark of I spoon R?, punched on the front of the bowl near the stem. This latter has been broken at its junction with the bowl. There are extensive traces of a white metal coating on the bowl's interior. The bowl shape is consistent with a latten trifid spoon in latten dated c. 1680 by Homer (1975, 46; ref. f), thought it is similar to the slightly earli…

Object type: THIMBLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A medieval sheet copper-alloy domed thimble with sloping sides, now squashed. There are multiple circular drilled or punched pits in slightly irregular concentric circles on the sides and top. Just above the base, below the pits, is an incised line. The thimble is 25.15mm long and 17.2mm wide in its squashed state; it weighs 5.15g, but this weight included mud. The thimble is probably late medieval in date (AD 1400-1500). It was probably used for light duty sewing (Egan 1998, 265).

A copper-alloy late medieval annular buckle frame with central strap bar. The outer face of one side is decorated with incised grooves, forming lobes in between.

Medieval cast copper-alloy impersonal seal matrix. The matrix has a pointed oval face with a central design of a lion rampant standing right within a line border encircled by the legend. The legend appears to read * PROTA[...]R[...]. The legend starts with a star. The matrix has a central ridge running up most of the back which would have terminates in a loop; this last has been lost following an old break. This object 19.75mm long by 14.7mm wide and 3.3mm thick; a weight was not captured on the day.

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Medieval or post-medieval plain cast copper-alloy double-loop buckle frame. The frame has two oval loops with bevelled outer and inner sides on the front; the back appears flat. The strap bar is narrowed with a triangular cross-section. The pin is missing but dark orange corrosion product at the pin bar shows that it would have been of iron. It is 24.9mm long, 20.3mm wide and 2.2mm thick, it weighs 3.0 grams. It is likely that simple forms like this were in use by c.1350 (Egan and Pritchard 1993:22, 82-3, cf no.332), and they continued into the 17th century.

Object type: BUCKLE

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Medieval cast copper-alloy buckle frame missing its plate and pin. The frame is oval with an offset and narrowed strap bar and offset outer edge recessed in the centre to take a sheet roller which survives in place. The outer edge has knops flanking the recessed centre. The upper and lower sides have a convex outer face. The frame is 19.5mm long, 4.75mm thick and 24.05mm wide and weighs 4.53 grams. Egan (2007, 95) illustrates a very similar example, no.590. He suggests (ibid:86) this type (Meols Type 11) dates to the medieval period (c.1250-1400 AD).

Medieval cast copper-alloy vessel leg, c.1300-1500 AD, probably from a ewer (water jug). The leg has an elongated D-shaped cross-section with a rounded front and flat back. It has an old irregular break at the upper end. The oval foot projects forward and has a rounded end. It is 35.2mm tall, 23.3mm wide, 12.8mm thick; it weighs 38.06 grams.
