Record ID: ESS-633FBE
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lithic flake implement of probable Bronze Age date c. 2500 - 800BC. The implement is composed of dark grey flint with mottled light grey inclusions. The flake is irregularly shaped and was knapped from a larger core or nodule. Despite the long edge being thin and sharp, there is limited evidence of retouch along the edge which would suggest refinement of the working edge. The flake was likely knapped via hard hammer technique as the curving fracture scar on the ventral face suggests that it was removed with significant force and perhaps with limited precision. There is evi…

Record ID: ESS-6038F9
Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Complete lead token of probable post Medieval date (c. 1500 - 1800). The token is flat and circular, with one face featuring a cross hatch design and a central thick, and slightly raised undecorated band. The opposite face appears plain though the raised band is also present. Lead tokens had a wide variety of potential uses such as use as tallies, gaming pieces, tickets, weights, etc. and are believed to have been locally produced; they are therefore difficult to date precisely. Those carrying initials are generally deemed to be Post-Medieval in date (AD 1500 - 1850), those whic…

Complete Roman cast copper-alloy votive model axe. The miniature object features a shaft which bisects a wedge-shaped axe head. The width of the butt of the axe is thinner than the blade tip, which tapers out to form a widened and slightly curving blade edge. The butt is also thicker than the tip, which tapers to a point, forming a triangular shape when viewed in plan (from above). The top of the shaft extends above the butt of the axe, and below the axe where it terminates in an old break. The shaft is sub-rectangular in cross section. The form of the head is similar to example…

Record ID: ESS-E2C1E5
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: MODERN
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a ceramic ornament in the form of a human female head. The precise original function of the artefact is unknown, but it is likely to be modern (post 1800), and part of a decorative or ornamental feature. It has been suggested that the head could represent part of a ceramic candle holder, of the 'circle of friends' type. The item is solid and seems to have been made in two halves, as there is a raised seam running around the head. The material appears to be terracotta. The features of the face including hair, eyes, nose and mouth are incised and are delicately and int…
