A copper-alloy Roman zoomorphic plate brooch in the shape of a rabbit shown in profile. The rabbit is depicted seated with compact, rounded body and proportionally small head. The fore and hind paws seem to be truncated, but would not have been that prominent to judge from comparanda. The eye is formed of a punch and a small ear extends behind the head. The body is corroded and pitted; it is pitting that seems visible rather than recesses for enamel found on similar brooches. The lower surface features a broken and abraded double pin lug at the centre of the rabbit's rear, and a a…

Object type: SPUR
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy spur rowel in the shape of a five-pointed star. The arms are flattened oval in cross-section. There is central circular perforation through the body of the rowel through which the rivet attaching it to the spur would have travelled (Dia.: 3.3mm). Small grooves between the points around the hole help delineate them. The artefact is of a red-brown metal small patches of dark-yellow corrosion product. Such rowels are undiagnostic and a wide medieval to post-medieval date is therefore offered; similar examples can be found illustrated in Read (2001, 66; refs. 505-507).

A medieval cast copper-alloy forked spacer which would have been part of a composite strap end, dating to the late 13th/early 14th to the early 15th centuries. The front and back plates are missing. The spacer has two rectangular arms, square in cross-section, both of which seem intact and are of slightly varying lengths. The two arms meet at the bottom with the inner sides curving in to the middle in a U-shape and the external sides taper to a series of three rectangular collars moulded in the round, the central of these slightly wider than those above and below. Below these co…

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A broken and incomplete medieval cast copper-alloy buckle frame missing its plate, pin and much of its frame. The frame was oval before old breaks halfway along one side and just before the outer edge respectively. The outer edge is offset and recessed in the centre to take a sheet roller with central low groove which survives in place. The outer edge has large rounded knops flanking the recessed centre. Egan (2007, 86) suggests that this type (Meols Type 11) dates to the medieval period (c. AD 1250-1400).

A Roman copper-alloy lower part of the bow and catch-plate of a brooch. The upper part of the bow, the head of the brooch and pin are missing due to an old patinated break. In cross-section, the bow is rectangular with rounded corners; it generally has flat upper and lower surfaces. The bow is elongated trapezoidal and tapers gradually from the point of the break (W.: 5.9mm) to a width of 3.5mm at the foot. The foot is simply squared off and decorated with two transversely incised grooves; the leg above is plain. On the lower surface the solid catch-plate survives well. It is broa…

A copper-alloy finger-ring with integral key dating to the earlier Roman period. The hoop is broadly circular and D-shaped in cross-section, being flat internally (int. dia.: 17.2mm max.). There are no shoulders as such and the bezel is only slightly thicker than the hoop. As with such artefacts the bit protrudes at right angles to the bezel such that the key element lay flat on the finger. The bit begins with a trapezoidal base that is decorated with a pair of transverse grooves. Above this is a recess each side to a narrow waist before the main sub-triangular upper element. The tria…

An incomplete large Roman cast copper-alloy developed T-shaped brooch dating to the late 1st to early 2nd century AD. The pin, lower part of the bow and the foot are missing following old damage. The head has two hollow cylindrical wings with flattened upper surfaces. They held the axis bar for the hinged pin. The axis bar survives in part, largely corroded, made of iron. Between the wings on the under side of the head is a slot in which the pin would have hinged. On the underside of the wings behind the slot is a thickened patch which may have helped retain the pin in use. R…

A post-medieval copper-alloy trade weight from the reign of George III or IV. The weight is circular with a wide raised rim on the top. It is 28.8mm in diameter by up to 5.8mm thick and weighs 19.55 grams, 0.687oz. It has probably lost weight through corrosion and damage and was originally a three-quarters of an ounce weight. It would have originally been part of a set of weights and bears official marks showing it was made in London and verified by the founders' company allowing it to be used in markets and shops as an official weight. A crowned letter G (for George) is located at …

A cast copper-alloy fragment: possibly a dish support from a late medieval/early post-medieval chafing dish. The object tapers to a point at one end.

A copper-alloy Roman probable initial T-shaped brooch, incomplete in so far as it is missing its pin (later 1st-century AD). The brooch survives well, only having suffered some post-depositional abrasions and slight pitting. The head has tubular wings, flattened slightly on their upper surface. They are apparently plain. The axis bar is largely obscured by the wings, but is can be said to have been made from iron judging by orange corrosion product both at the wing terminals and within the pin slot. The hinged pin is missing. The upper bow emerges from the wings initially at a…
