Record ID: SOM-844265
Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small body sherd with sparse flat, angular pieces of stone (up to 5-6mm), and poorly sorted moderated quartz sand temper, with some finer material. The piece is broken on all sides. It is shallowly curved in profile. It appears to have a dark-grey slip over a light-grey core. The rough surface, especially internally, would suggest a medieval date, as would thin thin walls, although an earlier date cannot be ruled out entirely.

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy double-looped buckle of post-medieval date (c. 17th century), incomplete in so far as it is missing its pin. In plan, one loop is D-shaped and the other is trapezoidal. The upper surface of the frame is bevelled externally and the underside is flat.

Its mass of 53.34g is c. 6% light of two ounces averdepois, following the 'binary' system of sixteen ounces to the pound effective from c. AD

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A corroded cast copper-alloy double-looped buckle frame of post-medieval date (c. AD 1500-1650), incomplete in so far as it is missing its pin. The loops are of pointed oval form; they incurve towards the pin bar. The pin bar itself is narrowed and terminates in a small pointed knop at each end. The points are central triangular protrusions on the outer edges; one features a transverse groove which would have acted as a pin rest. The frame is bevelled both externally and internally on its upper surface; the former is more gradual. The pin bar is therefore trapezoidal in cross-sect…
