Record ID: CORN-46E86D
Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of the rim of a cast copper-alloy cooking vessel. The fragment is roughly triangular, 43.5 mm long, 32 mm wide, 2 mm in thickness at the rim and weighs 15.5 g. The fragment is bent in plan, so that the curvature is unknown. The exterior surface is slightly pitted, but almost entirely coated in burnt black organic matter from when the vessel was near the fire. The interior surface has a smooth coating of copper corrosion and patches of black organic material around the transverse groove below the rim, which is 5 mm in depth. The rim is flush with the exterior of the vessel bu…

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete cast copper alloy double-loop vesica-shaped buckle frame, with strap bar but the pin is missing. The central strap bar is flush with the frame and narrows from 6 mm to 2 mm in the centre where it has been worn thinner by the pin. The loops are slightly asymmetrical and oval in plan. The frame is angled, becoming wider at the outer edges of the two loops, coming to a point mid-way along the outer edge. The frame is flat on the back with a slightly convex upper face. The upper and lower edges of the frame are pitted and corroded but there is slight evidence suggestive of a sma…

Incomplete cast copper-alloy double-looped plain annular buckle. The frame is circular in plan, 18 mm in diameter, 2 mm thick and 2.5 mm in height, and B-shaped in profile with straight inner edge and bevelled outer edge. The central strap bar is flush with both faces of the frame; it is 0.75 mm wide at the edges but is slightly distorted and narrower at the centre, through wear by the pin, which is missing. The surface of the buckle is slightly corroded and pitted in places but there is no evidence of surface decoration. Whitehead (1996) illustrates a similar annular buckles on page …

Cast copper alloy spoon finial or knop in the form of a female hooded figure draped at the back, with a bundle in front of her left arm, so perhaps a figure of the Virgin Mary holding the Christ child, but the figure appears to have bare legs and is also holding a vessel in her right hand so may represent a more Classical female figure holding a water jug, which has been copied in many media since. The figure is worn and corroded and so small that it is hard to make out enough detail to identify it. Apostle spoons are generally silver or silver gilt with a religious figure forming the…

Object type: SWORD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a cast copper alloy blade, possibly the point from a Bronze Age sword, kite-shaped in plan and lozenge-shaped in profile. The broken end appears to have been deliberately cut to create a pointed apex which may have been to improve hafting if the fragment was re-used as some sort of perforating tool. This break is not typical of the deliberate breaking up of swords into fragments for deposition, which is often clean and perpendicular to the edge (Matt Knight pers comm). None of the original surface remains, as the fragment is so corroded and pitted from being in the sea, and…

Object type: FLAT AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy miniature flat axe head of the Early Bronze Age, c.2200-2000 BC. Sub-triangular in plan, lenticular in section and in profile. At 101 mm in length the axe is slightly over half the size of a standard Early Bronze Age axe from South-west England. It is 43.5 mm wide at the blade end, tapering to 20 mm near the damaged butt end; its maximum thickness is 9.5 mm and its weight 164.45 g. The sides are straight and do not flare outwards to meet the blade edge which is slightly curved in plan. Much of the original surface has been lost and the axe is pitted and abraded thro…

Object type: TRANCHET AXEHEAD
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Bournemouth
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Mesolithic tranchet axe or adze, rectangular in plan, lozenge-shaped in profile, triangular in section at the butt end and lenticular at the slightly wider blade end. Made on an elongated flint nodule which has been flaked from both faces to remove most of the cortex, except for a small patch at the butt end, to produce the outline shape of the axe. Large flakes have been removed from one edge of both faces, mid-way along the axe, resulting in a thinning of the axe at this point, apparently for hafting the axe. At the blade end, the axe has been thinned on both faces by the removal o…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint axe dating from the Neolithic period, an elongated oval in plan, and lozenge-shaped in profile and section. Made on a flint nodule which has been flaked on both sides to produce the shape of the axe: a series of regular, large flake scars is visible along both margins and on both faces. The resulting tool is thin at the edges, with a thick ridge along the medial line on both faces and two narrow, curved ends. All of the cortex has been removed by this process. The principal cutting end, or blade, is wider than the butt which is also thin enough to have also been used for cuttin…

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A ficron hand axe of the Acheulean tradition, dating from the Lower Palaeolithic period, originally from the collection of Roy Rainbird Clarke (1914-1963). In plan, the axe is triangular with concave sides, typical of the ficron style of hand axe (Wymer, Mode 2, Type M). Made on a flint nodule the flint has been flaked to remove most of the cortex, except for a large patch at the butt end, producing a tapering axe which is lozenge-shaped in section. The narrow tip has been finely flaked to a point. The surface of the flint is coated with a thick, silky patina which has become a deep or…

A flint bifacial ovate hand axe dating from the Lower Palaeolithic period, originally from the collection of Roy Rainbird Clarke (1914-1963). The hand axe belongs to the Acheulean tradition and is classified by Wymer (1999) as Mode 2, Type K on page 11, fig.4. Made on a large flint flake which has been worked by the removal of flakes around the circumference of the flake to produce a roughout, followed by thinning using a soft hammer to remove shallow flakes from both faces, removing all traces of the original flint cortex. The domed dorsal face has been finished by the removal of a se…

Flint transverse arrowhead, chisel type, triangular in plan, and rhomboidal in profile and in section. The proximal end has had a 'tranchet' flake removed from the dorsal face to create a bevelled edge on this, the longest side of the triangle. The proximal end has been retouched on the left side with three punches. The two margins of the dorsal face have had their entire edge retouched to make it more serrated. On the ventral face at the distal end, there are three fractures emanating from the edge where it has been snapped off. This distal end is the base of the arrowhead, where it w…

Cast copper alloy bridle bit with part of the mount remaining at one end of the eye ring which tapers to half of the snaffle link on the other side. The eye ring would have joined the rein to the snaffle link which was placed in the horse's mouth. The eye ring is D-shaped in plan and section with an aperture that is 14 mm in diameter. The snaffle link is cylindrical and circular in section, with a length of 23 mm and a diameter of 8 mm. The mount is sub-rectangular, having been worn into an oval to the edge of the eye ring, but was probably originally either circular or square in plan …

Incomplete cover plate of the box mounted at the apex of a Post-medieval copper alloy stirrup in the form of a scallop shell or crown. The edges at the side are missing, having been broken off with the bar which would have formed the rear of the box. The moulded plate is formed of six incised radiating oblique lines, above a transvere border. In the centre of the convex upper edge, there is a rectangular knop, 8 mm wide and protruding 6 mm from the edge. This makes the plate look like a crown with a mounted element on top. If meant to depict a scallop shell, then it may indicate links …

Cast copper alloy rim fragment from a bowl or cooking vessel with a 15 mm wide internally bevelled rim that is triangular in profile and flush with the upper edge of the vessel. The body of the vessel curves downwards slightly, in profile, to suggest a shallow straight-sided bowl, and the curvature of the rim, in plan, suggests a diameter of about 300 mm. The bevelled rim itself is 6 mm thick which then tapers to the body which is 5 mm thick. The interior surface of the fragment is pitted from the sand casting process and the exterior surface has many parallel horizontal lines which ar…

A rim fragment from a cast copper alloy cauldron. The fragment is 75 mm in width, 41 mm in height and 3.5 mm thick, widening to 6 mm thick at the rim and a weight of 57.3 g. The rim is out-turned and bevelled on its inner edge with the upper face flat, so that it is triangular in section. The curvature of the rim suggests that it would have been 280 mm in diameter which falls comfortably within the normal range for a cauldron and suggests a vessel with a capacity of between 4½ and 6 gallons. The exterior surface is rough and has patches of black burnt organic matter encrusted on to th…
