Object type: BUTTON
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A circular lead/tin alloy button, cast in one piece, with an integral undrilled shank on the reverse. The edge of the button is very worn and all that remains of the shank is a slight lump in the centre of the otherwise flat reverse. The convex front is decorated with a cast floral motif. A very similar button can be seen in Read's 'Metal Buttons c. 900 BC to c. AD 1700' (2005, p. 59, no. 223). This example has been dated to the 16th century. Dimensions: 16.5mm (maximum diameter) by 3.73mm (maximum thickness) Weight: 3.24g

Object type: HARNESS MOUNT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An elaborate horse harness pendant suspension mount, cast in copper alloy in several pieces and gilded. The pendant suspension mount is somewhat distorted but formerly consisted of an 'M' shaped mount, approximately 40mm wide by 45mm high, from which hung three separately cast pendants. The two outer pendants, both shield-shaped and around 28mm (including the suspension loops, which are turned through 90 degrees) by 17mm, survive in situ. The central pendant is missing, but a parallel (see below) suggests that this was a small bell rather than another shield. The mount would have been …

Object type: HOOKED TAG
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An early-medieval cast copper alloy dress hook. The very thin plate (0.85mm thick) is oval (12mm by 11.3mm). Close to the edge opposite the hook, there are two small circular attachment holes, 2.3 and 2.5mm in diameter, for sewing the tag onto cloth. The pointed hook is 8mm long with a slight bend at the end. It is slightly thicker than the plate. The hooked tag is very worn with only small patches of the original surface left. One side of the plate is decorated with a engraved ring of dots, parallel to the edge. These are now very faint.

County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper alloy single looped palstave axehead of later Middle Bronze Age date (Taunton tradition).

Object type: DRESS FASTENER (DRESS)
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Part of one half of a probable sheet copper alloy two-piece dress fastener, probably of seventeenth century date. The fastener would have formerly had three holes for sewing onto cloth, one at the distal end and one on each side. Just one of the side holes survives intact. The end hole has broken off entirely. Because the hook or loop at the proximal end is missing, it is not possible to say which half of the two-piece fastener this object represents. The engraved decoration on the front of the fastener consists of a tall flower with stem and side leaves, and ring and dot decoration ar…

A cast copper alloy strip bow brooch, probably of 1st century AD date. The hinge is entirely missing, as are the foot and catchplate. The head contains a central slot for the missing pin.

The foot from a cast copper alloy bow brooch, probably a T-shape or trumpet brooch, of first or second century AD date.

Immediately above and below the knop is a small horizontal ridge and above and below these is a further ridge with contracted centre, making four ridges in all. The lower part of the bow, which has a slightly convex front, tapers to a rounded forward projecting foot, 3.66mm in width and 1.51mm thick. Behind the foot is the sh…

Object type: SPOON
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
The bowl and part of the stem of a Roman cast copper alloy spoon. The tip of the bowl is damaged, but overall the bowl is pear-shaped (although slightly more oval at the stem end than typical examples).

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset

The spherical head of an openwork cast copper alloy pin, probably of 16th century date. Some traces of gilding can be seen. The pin head appears to have been cast to imitate the filigree work which is seen on other pins of this date, which are often made from precious metals. The sphere is divided into two hemispheres by one band of 'filigree'. Each hemisphere is formed from three circles of 'filigree' and each of these in turn is made of three smaller circles. In the centre of the smaller circles and in between the larger circles there are tiny sub-rounded decorative bosses. There are…
