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…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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 copper alloy T-shaped brooch of early Roman date. This Wilsford type brooch is incomplete in as much as it is missing its pin. The cylindrical wings conceal the copper-alloy axis bar for the hinged pin. Their upper surfaces are decorated with two incised lines at each end. The head of the pin has a pointed projection for tensioning, but this is all that survives of the pin (loose). The bow has a D-shaped cross-section and projects forward from the wings. The upper bow has moulded decoration in the form of four ridges with central grooves either side of a central recessed rib. Its l…

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…
