Object type: HARNESS FITTING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper-alloy strap-mounted harness fitting (terret ring) dating to the early Roman period. Lewis' type 19 'dropped-bar' form. The terret ring is composed of a simple plain oval loop with a thicker sectioned top than base and which has obvious signs of wear to one side. The base of the ring is missing the rectangular attachment loop due to old breaks. Similar strap-mounted terrets are recorded on the PAS database (in particular, records KENT-367219 and SWYOR-6BEF21) as well as in published literature (Lewis 2015, p. 84, fig. 4.1 xix). The dating for these pi…

An incomplete copper alloy decorative mount or fitting of early Medieval date, c. 12th century AD (AD 1100-1200). The object is formed from a sem-circular plate of copper alloy, gilded on the upper surface. The plate has alternating rounded panels of openwork and solid panels decorated with human face-masks. Between the panels are several smaller holes presumably for rivets, two of which survive. These rivets stand proud of the front surface and have been gilded, suggesting that they are decorative rather than functional. Each rivet is cone shaped and terminates with a rounded knop.…

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper alloy furniture fitting of post-medieval date. The fitting is in the form of an equal-armed cros with slightly expanded terminals. There is no decoration visible on the front of the mount. On there reverse of the mount are four sunken hollows at the end of each arm, all filled with the remains of an unidentified substance presumabely to secure the mount in place. The form of the cross and the colour of the metal strongly suggests a post-medieval, if not later date. The mount probably adorned an item of furniture of casket / chest. Suggested date: AD 1500-1800.

A foot / leg from a copper alloy cooking vessel of Medieval to Post Medieval date (c. AD 1400 - AD 1750). The vessel leg is sub rectangular in shape with a D shaped cross section. The foot expands from the leg into a flat, sub-triangular base; the opposing end of the leg narrows but terminates in an old, worn break. It is uncertain what type of vessel this fragment comes from, but Egan (1998) comments that commonly used cooking vessels in the Medieval period include skillets, ewers, and cauldrons. Butler, Green and Payne (2009) illustrate copper-alloy cooking vessels on page 2 an…

A complete lead alloy weight of uncertain date. The weight is circular in plan and plano-convex in cross section, of irregular thickness and with a sub-circular perforation through the centre.

AD 600-1600.

A complete lead alloy cloth seal of post-medieval to early modern date. The cloth seal is a three-part seal wich has been folded closed when it was secured to the bale of cloth (for example).

A complete lead alloy token or tally of post-medieval date. The token has a six petalled flower on one face and initials probably reading HN (N retrograde) and possibly and X on the other. Underneath the main initials is what appears to be an small six-armed cross and possibly a V, although it is far from clear. The use of these objects is uncertain - they could be agricultural tokens or tallies given to workers to 'spend' locally, like trade tokens or the later hop tokens. It has also been suggested that they are game pieces. Lead tokens with initials generally date from c. AD 150…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete and squashed lead alloy bird feeder of post-medieval date (c. AD 1450-1700). The feeder would have had a flat back to allow it to sit up against a cage or other item; the front of the feeder is rounded. This is evident in the plano-convex shape of the base, which remains intact and undamaged. The upper rim of the bird feeder is damaged although a double cast-line acts as minimalist decoration. A single hole near the rim of the reverse of the feeder (the flat back) would have been where the feeder could have been secured to the cage by string. Interestingly there appears …
