County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast lead-alloy cap from a post-medieval powder measure (c. 17th century). It has slightly flaring sides from top to bottom, at one point now squashed inwards, giving a sub-circular base which is open. Where the sides meet the top there are two attachment loops, one on each side, both squashed down against the sides. The top is slightly recessed at its circumference with low concentric ridges suggestive of a centring process. A seam is prominent on the side. The object measures 17.0mm in height, 23.2 by 18.3mm at the base and 18.1 by 17.5mm at the top (excluding the loops). Th…

Record ID: SOM-B8FBC6
Object type: CLOTH SEAL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete two-part lead-alloy cloth seal, the two discs and the connecting rivet intact along with the connecting tab. The central rivet and front disc were stamped with a 'privy' or 'merchant's' mark. The mark has the letters ?P [...] with a knot design above and below within a line border. On the reverse is a are three incuse stamped capital letters arranged in an inverted triangle: V D // I. This was probably a cloth seal used by a weaver, dyer or searcher. The use of a privy mark suggests a 16th to 18th century date; many with incuse stamps are dated to the 17th century.

Record ID: SOM-AEDE4A
Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete medieval to post-medieval cast lead-alloy circular unifaced token of Powell type 3 (c. AD 1250-1800). The token has a raised design of five straight lines radiating from a pellet at the centre to the raised edge on both sides. Around a third of the token has been lost to an old break to one side. Lead tokens had a wide variety of uses and were made locally; they are therefore hard to date precisely and could be Medieval or Post Medieval in date.
