Record ID: LVPL-DF3823
Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy object, possibly a strap fitting of some type. The design resembles some roman military strap fittings featured in Appels and Laycock (2007) but does not correspond closely to any of them and may possibly date from an Iron Age to Medieval date. The object consists of two plates that are joined and separated by an internal piece resembling a compressed ring with a central supporting bar at its centre. The upper plate is bowtie-shaped and divided into three regions, each of which is roughly centred with a spiral. These spirals appear to be attached as separate elements tha…

Object type: HORSE TRAPPING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A piece of horse furniture for the suspension of a pendant, also known as a pendant mount. The object consists of a plate, tapering to the suspension point at the bottom, and attached to the rest of the harness by two semicircular lugs that are formed from an extension of the top part of the plate. The central area features an octofoil design with each petalloid enclosure filled with small circular depressions. The suspension point, or hinge, at the bottom, still has the remains of an iron pin within it, evidenced by the presence of rust. Ashley (2002) has a few examples of a simila…

Object type: PIPE TAMPER
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A piece of a possible pipe tamper, this section being the finger ring that would attach to the tamping shaft itself. It is of copper alloy and cast, the band being convex in outer prifile and perpendicular on the inner, forming a 'D' shape in cross section. The area that would be a setting in a conventional ring has here a 7mm diameter hole for the probable anchoring of the tamping shaft, in contrast to a similar type (SWYOR-4BBAD6) that has the tamper on the underside of the band and the upper surface mount as that of a signet ring. The crispness of the moulding and lack of deteriora…

Object type: BIRD FEEDER
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A late medieval (AD 1540-1700) lead bird feeder, of similar style to BH-85F197 and LANCUM-901915 The object is a flared rim vessel of roughly 45 mm in height and 72 mm in absolute width, though this is probably not an accurate reflection of its original proportions as it is now compressed and distorted. A flattened back and two possible suspension points may indicate it was attached to a flat surface above the bottom of the bird enclosure, though the base is also flat enough for it to have been freestanding. Egan (2005) notes that similar objects, excavated in London, were in their o…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy buckle of post-medieval date (AD 1660-1720), similar to examples given on pg. 97 of Whitehead (2003), specifically number 599. This design and type were commonly used as knee and shoe buckles. The buckle design is asymmetrical, curved on one side and straight the other, and is drilled to accommodate a central separate spindle. This spindle has an anchor shaped chape, the two arms of which are now reduced.

County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Half of a cast copper-alloy buckle, similar to examples given on pg. 82 of Whitehead (2003), specifically number 511. Only half of the buckle survives, one of the loops being lost. The remaining section consists of the cross bar and the other loop. Details of mouldings can be seen on the loop, resembling foliate or feather-like patterns. Both ends of the crossbar are connected to rounded knops; all mounding is limited to a side that would have presumably been the front.

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cheshire East
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small, cast lead spindle whorl, with a central holed diameter of 8mm. It is of a rounded biconical shape and decorated in the recognisable spindle whorl pattern of one face having an arrangement of radially arranged petalloid rasied areas and the other a series of ridges interspersed with raised pellets. As the whorl is made of lead, this indicates a roughly medieval to post-medieval date. It is very difficult to apply a more exact date though due to a lack of a more complete diagnostic.

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Medieval (1200-1400) strap end of copper alloy composition (as evidenced by substantial greening), with remaining elements of silvering. The object is narrow and thin, tapering from 10mm at the widest surviving part to 7mm at the narrowest. There are two visible plates connected by a pin, though it is clear from the break point at the narrowest end that there were originally two pins and it is at this weak point it has snapped. some compressed dried soil obscures a view of the inside. The upper plate is decorated with a clear border, the area inside of which has remnants of a cross-…

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cheshire East
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead spindle whorl of biconical shape, cast with a hole of approximately 8.5mm diameter at the centre. One side features the recognisable spindle whorl patternation of raised pellets situated within negative spaces delineated by raised radial ridges. The opposite side is partly degraded but resembles the first. There is a nick in the side of the body, possibly caused by plough action. As the whorl is made of lead, this indicates a roughly medieval to post-medieval date. It is very difficult to apply a more exact date though due to a lack of a more complete diagnostic.

County: Cheshire East
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead spindle whorl of biconical shape, cast with a hole of approximately 9mm diameter at the centre. The two sides differ in level of corrosion; the less corroded side features the recognisable spindle whorl patternation of raised pellets situated within negative spaces delineated by raised radial ridges. The opposite side is degraded but may feature petalloid designs. As the whorl is made of lead, this indicates a roughly medieval to post-medieval date. It is very difficult to apply a more exact date though due to a lack of a more complete diagnostic.

Object type: BROOCH

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete Roman gilded copper-alloy disc brooch, probably of about AD 200-350. The brooch is circular in plan, measuring 26mm in diameter, with a central boss made of a dark gemlike material. The boss is conical and measures 5mm in diameter and 9mm in height. The base of the boss is raised 1.8mm above the surrounding surface, giving a total thickness of 19mm for the entire object. A slightly raised rim forms the outer circumference of the brooch and enough gilding survives to recognise a repetitive pattern of "S" shapes just inside this edge. On the reverse, there is some white metal…

A complete lead alloy pilgrim ampulla of costrel type, similar to DUR-694C08 and with a passing resemblance to DENO-4A4151. Ampullae were bought by pilgrims at holy sites and filled with consecrated water or oil. The body of the ampulla is decorated with three shields in rectangular borders on either side. The neck is flanked by two right-angled lug arms with square cross-section. On one side, corrosion has made the design of first two shields unclear. The one on the right contains a "T" shape infilled with narrow diagonal lines. The central shield is topped by an arch of raised dots…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A spherical copper alloy crotal bell of around 32 mm diameter, similar to SUR-6E84B5 but not as ornate. The main body of the bell is a hollow sphere of two halves, the equator marked out by a raised ridge that is probably a remnant of the casting process. The upper half has a rectiliear loop for attachment to a suspension cord, along with two sound holes. The lower half has a central slit, marked at each end by a sound hole, one of which is now blocked. These would have originally allowed the note of the bell to sound clearly outside of the shell.
