County: Somerset

A fragment of a Roman copper alloy bracelet. The fragment is D-shaped in cross-section, being flat on the inside (next to the wearer's skin) and concave on the outside. Viewed from the side it is curved and viewed from the top it is wider at one end than the other. This suggests that the bracelet was originally penannular. The wide end is the abraded terminus and at the narrow end there is an old break where the rest of the bracelet has been lost. The fragment is decorated with four narrow and three wide transverse collars. These are arranged from the centre of the fragment to the ter…

An incomplete Post-Medieval lead alnage cloth seal. The object is a single incomplete disc of an originally two or four-disc seal.

An incomplete Post Medieval lead alnage cloth seal. Originally forming part of a four-lobed seal, the surviving fragment consists of just two discs joined together: approximately 70 per cent of disc 3 and 90 per cent of disc 4. The breaks are old and probably caused by the plough. Disc 4 appears to have a tab extending a few millimetres from the edge opposite disc 3. At the other extremity, on disc 3, a remnant of the connecting strip that joined it to disc 2 survives and is slightly crumpled. Disc 3 is stamped with a design which, by comparison with similar seals, might be a thistle …

The surviving fragment consists a single disc (disc 1) of a two- or four-part cloth seal, with an integral rivet projecting from the reverse.

There is a small circle above the A and traces of anoth…

A post-medieval cast lead powder measure cap, probably dating to the 17th century. The cap has been crushed, with one side flattened pressed in and towards the other. The top appears to have originally been almost circular in plan, however on the side that has been flattened, just less than half of the top surface has been sheared off, most probably by the plough. The remains of one attachment loop is present on the surviving part. On the flattened side of the cap a vertical casting seam is visible.

Body sherd from a small cup, bowl or jar with almost vertical sides. The fabric is mid orange with some fine quartz temper. The exterior is decorated with white slip interrupted by four turned parallel lines at the top and indented ovals with dignal scratches across them below. A yellow glaze over all appears brown on the inside and areas where the slip has been removed. This form of decoration is typical of South Somerset ware of the late 17th to 19th centurys altough the scratched ovals are slightly unusual.

An incomplete medieval copper-alloy bar mount (strap-fitting). The strap fitting consists of a sub-rectangular sheet of copper alloy, tapering into a narrow strip at the bottom, which curves backwards to form a hook, but has seemingly lost its terminal through which a rivet would have travelled for attachment. The bar is flat and is perforated with two rivet holes, one at each narrow end. The hook appears to have been twisted slightly. On the front of the fitting the long edges are very slightly recessed and decorated with finely incised wrigglework. The reverse is smooth and flat wi…

Fragment of a post medieval lead cloth seal. Part of a four-disc seal, the remaining section is the two outer disks of the conjoined pairs joined by the rivet from the back of one disk running through a hole in the other. The discs appear plaina nd the design would probably have been on the inner discs. It measures 15.9mm long by 11.2mm wide, 6.4 mm thick excluding the tab and weighs 3.97g. See SOM-4AEAFC for a complete four-disc seal or similar form. Without the design it is not possibly to date this precisely but most are AD 1500-1800.
