The head and upper part of the bow of a Roman cast copper-alloy initial T-shaped brooch with hinged pin dating to c. AD 60-100. The lower part of the bow, foot and pin are missing to worn breaks. The brooch head has open-ended cylindrical wings containing an iron axis bar for the hinge. One wing has lost its upper half, possibly as a result of corrosion of the axis bar within. The complete wing is decorated with a double transverse ridge moulding towards its top with an incised line within. There is a large transverse slot through the centre of the underside of the head, between the w…

The head and upper bow from a copper-alloy Developed T-shaped brooch of early Roman date. The leg is missing below a central knop due to an old break. Furthermore, only the head of the pin survives. 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; the very beginnings of the shaft have been been to one side. On the upper surface the wing tip are decorated with a pair of transversely incise…

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete medieval cast copper-alloy single looped buckle, missing both pin bar and pin. The frame is oval and angled with a possible central pin rest. The pin bar has been lost in its entireity, with the side of the buckle twisted up at one end where the pin bar would have emerged; it is assumed that the pin bar would have been off set and narrowed. The outer edge is expanded both in width and thickness. The frame has a variable mid-green colour and would appear to be plain.

A corroded but complete cast copper-alloy mount of post-medieval date. The mount consists of two lobes connected by a trio of transverse ridges, all moulded in low relief. On the lower surface there are slight recesses in the lobes. At each end is an integral lug which curves round and overlaps the other by 10.1mm; one lug is set in slightly more than the other, which abuts the edge. The mount's construction and decoration suggests a c. 17th-century date; a similar artefact can be found illustrated in Read (2001, 36; no. 314). This piece is of a variable mid-green colour, with some ar…

The fantail foot of a Roman bow brooch, probably a bow-and-fantail type or Aesica varient (1st/2nd century AD). The brooch has broken at a central circular 'button'. This would have been raised up; the upwards angle as the button connects to the foot seems an original feature and suggests the bow above was also raised. A central setting may have been housed within a double concentric ring moulding that forms the button or this may have been the point from which the bow projected up and out. The foot below is broadly triangular with slightly projecting ring settings at each lower corne…

A small post-medieval cast copper-alloy vessel leg and abraded foot. The leg is trapezoidal in cross-section with rounded corners and with a flat back; the front surface is narrower than the back. The foot is very worn at its base, diagonally in cross-section; it is assumed that this is following truncation as it would be inconsistent with usual wear through use. Just above the break there appears to be a low transverse ridge on the front, above which three longitudinal ridges, those that flank the central ridge curving outwards. The leg is connected to part of the curved body of t…

A notably small post-medieval cast copper-alloy vessel foot and part of the leg. The leg is triangular in cross-section with rounded corners and with a flat back; it is broken off just above a transverse prominent collar with an old break. The foot is small, rounded and seemingly plain. The fragment has a dark-grey patina where it survives following corrosion. Crudely made cast copper-alloy vessels were widely used from c.1100-1800 for serving and cooking. Butler et al (2009, 4) suggest there were four main types of leg used. This is a type C which they suggest was already in use b…

The leg is triangular in cross-section with a flat back; it is broken off just above a transverse prominent collar with an old break. The foot is flared and plain.

Butler et al (2009, 4) suggest there were four main types of leg used. This is a type C which they suggest was already in use by the 16th century and was almost universal in the 17th.

An broken and incomplete cast copper-alloy double-looped buckle frame of early post-medieval date. The frame was formed of two conjoined ovals such that the sides incurve slightly; one of the loops has been lost due to old damage at its junction with the pin bar. The frame is shallowly bevelled externally on the upper surface; the lower surface is flat. The pin bar has a trapezoidal cross-section. It is extended at each end in a rounded knop. The pin is missing. The buckle frame has corroded to a variable red/brown colour with some patches of dark-green patina surviving in a few places.

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper-alloy bifacial coin weight, for the Portuguese 'joe' gold coins, issued between AD 1760 and AD 1773. The value of 18 shillings indicated was equivalent to the 'half joe'/2 escudos coin (Withers & Withers 1995, 55). Both faces are marked with a small S above a large 18 above a small 4 . 14 1/2, all within a laurel wreath. This indicates a weight equivalent to that of 18 shillings. The 4 . 14 1/2 stood for the official weight of the coin (4 pennyweights and 14.5 grains). It has a diameter of 19.6mm and is 3.4mm thick. It weighs 6.85g/105.8 grains. As such it is n…

Between the letters, and with its top slightly above is a stamped rectangle with engrailed sides, probably a local maker's mark. The initials and numbers refer to the weight of the object in pennyweights (P 2) and grains (G 16) and refer to the weight of the gold half guinea. Weights with this design and value were iss…

A copper-alloy button brooch of early-medieval date (5th - 6th century AD), of Class C. This example is incomplete in so far as its iron pin been lost to corrosion; a trace of corrosion product is present adjacent to one of the lugs (now so abraded that one cannot distinguish the pin lug from catch-plate).

An early-medieval copper-alloy strap-end, classified as Thomas's (2003, 2) Class A, Type 1 (Trewhiddle style), slightly damaged at the attachment end. This would date the artefact to around the 9th century AD. The strap-end is flat in profile. The plate expands from a width of 10.0mm the attachment end to a maximum width of 13.5mm at the base of the split. From this point it tapers consistently towards an animal head terminal (W.: 6.8mm). The upper half of the split attachment end survives intact, pierced twice, though neither rivet survives. It has also been bent upwards. The lowe…
