  • Thumbnail image of PUBLIC-B17CAA

Record ID: PUBLIC-B17CAA
Object type: MUSKET BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead musket ball of probable post medieval date. There are two flattened areas on the surface, probably where the sprue has been removed, and the mark left by the ramrod. The surface is covered with thick white patination. The weight (35.8g) and size (18.9mm) are consistent with use in a smoth-bore musket of military specification, and it probably dates to the 17th century, though a later date cannot be ruled out

Record ID: PUBLIC-9D9F17
Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead weight or possible gaming piece, of probable medieval date. In plan it is rounded at the base, which is of c22mm diameter, with an oval projection at the apex measuring 8.5 by 5.1mm; and in section it is in the form of a shallow cone with a slight lean, 15.5mm high, surmounted by a 3.4mm high central trapezoidal projection. As the surface is heavily patinated and generally worn, the detail is obscured, and it is possible that the projection may originally have been higher and would have been perforated to allow suspension. The object weighs 40.03g.

Object type: BULLA
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Possible papal bulla, dating to the medieval period. A 5.2mm thick lead disc measuring c35.5mm in diameter (33.0 - 36.8mm), and weighing 43.4g. Both sides are corroded and covered in thick white patination, and no detail is visible. The dimensions and presence of marks on the circumferential edge where the cord would have been attached lead me to believe this is probably a bulla seal, but it could be something else.

Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy mount of probable post-medieval date. It is hexagonal in plan, with the stubs of two curved attachment spikes projecting from the rear - these appear to have been cast integrally. The outer face is decorated in relief with a 6 petalled Tudor rose inside a tressured border, accentuated by small knops at the points of the hexagon. The surface is badly corroded and if it was originally gilded, as seems likely, there are no remaining traces. Read, in 'Metal artefacts of antiquity' (2001), ascribes 16th or 17th century dates to similar items.

Silver groat of Mary I of England, dating from 1553-4. Very worn, just enough of the legend remains to identify it. It has minor loss and might be lightly clipped as the diameter, at 22.5mm, is a little less than usual. As North 1960

Prehistoric flake of translucent light brown flint, with some original cortex remaining on the dorsal face and a prominent bulb and ripple marks on the ventral. Triangular in plan with a corner missing from the narrow side, and has two facets to the dorsal face. No visible retouch. Probably Mesolithic in date, but possibly Neolithic or Bronze age.

Record ID: PUBLIC-5FE8F5
Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Prehistoric core, a worked nodule of black/brown flint, with some original cortex remaining. The nodule is irregularly shaped and shows evidence of having been worked from different angles at widely spaced intervals, as some of the worked facets have recorticated and some haven't. Some of the removals are of narrow bladelets and are probably Mesolithic in date, but it has probably been reworked in the Neolithic, or possibly the Bronze age. Maximum length 91.5mm, width 63.5mm, thickness 41.0mm; mass 234g.

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Late Neolithic or early Bronze age secondary blade of mottled black/brown flint. It is triangular in plan, and the tip and base edges both show abrupt retouch. There is cortex remaining along the central facet of the trapezoid sectioned dorsal face and ripple marks on the slightly curved ventral side. There is a notch halfway along one side which appears to be intentional. Probably intended as a plano-convex knife, but appears to have been reworked, maybe to be used as a scraper, when it broke during manufacture. Length 36.4 mm, width 21.8 mm, thickness 7.1 mm, mass 5.8 g.

Mesolithic tertiary flake of partially recorticated grey/brown flint with some white inclusions.

Mesolithic secondary flake of grey/brown flint with white inclusions. In plan it is a narrow trapezium with a triangular profile. No retouch visible. Possibly debitage - a fault within the flint has caused a hinge fracture at one end. Length 21.4 mm, width 7.4 mm, thickness 4.4 mm, mass 0.7 g.
