Record ID: CORN-1C863B
Object type: STYLUS
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two lead styli of probable Medieval or Post-Medieval date. Both are circular in section and cylindrical in form with a tapering point at one end with the other ends worn and blunt which may have originally expanded into a wedge-shape, used to erase what had been written with the point. The first stylus is 4.3 mm in length, 7.5 mm in diameter and 19.85 g in weight; the second is 62.5 mm in length, 10.5 mm in diameter and 22.6 g in weight. The long, tapered end of the longer stylus is deeply pitted and the surfaces of both styli are coated with an off-white layer of lead oxide. Egan (199…

Object type: DIE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast asymmetric lead die dating from the Medieval to the Post-medieval period. The die is slightly irregular in shape but with well-squared corners and smooth, flat faces with drilled dots to indicate their values. It measures 9.5 mm by 8.6 mm by 7.6 mm and weighs 7.25 g. The opposing longer, wider faces are 4 and 3; the longer, narrower faces are 6 and 2; the short ends are 5 and 1. This pattern does not conform to any of the 16 variants of the 'regular' format illustrated by Potter (1992) and reproduced by Egan in Finds Research Group Datasheet 23 (1997) on p.3, fig.2, in which the…

Object type: CAULDRON
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of the rim of a cast copper-alloy cooking vessel or cauldron. The edge of the rim is internally bevelled so that it is flush with the exterior but stepped on the interior, with a triangular profile, which is 7 mm thick before tapering to 4 mm below. The fragment has a layer of burnt black organic matter on the exterior, but a series of fine, parallel scratches at an angle of about 45 degrees to the rim cut through this layer, suggesting that they are post-deposition. The inner surface is smooth and flat, with some burnt organic matter trapped under the bevelled ridge that pr…

Record ID: CORN-0EA543
Object type: CAULDRON
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy fragment from the body of a cauldron. All of the edges are broken and uneven and the shallow curve of the wall suggests a large cauldron with a diameter of about 380 mm, that might hold about 7 gallons. The interior of the fragment is smooth and unencrusted. Much of the exterior is covered in a layer of burnt organic matter but has a very fine granular texture, suggesting a date of manufacture of the end of the 17th century, or later. Across the outer surface of fragment is a raised decorative band or 'wire' in the casting, that is 3 mm wide. Below this is an elongated t…

Object type: HARNESS HOOK
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Medieval cast copper alloy enamelled heraldic harness hook dating from c.1250-1400. The harness fitting is complete and cast in one piece with a shield-shaped plate above an expanded biconical collar which tapers to a distorted hook. The hook as been bent open slightly and to one side which would have detached it from what it was suspending. The plate is decorated on both sides with a fine, enamelled representation of a unicorn rampant, facing left, with white (argent) body and red (gules) horn surrounded by green (vert) foliage, with part of the now detached tail of the unicorn visi…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy open-topped thimble or sewing ring, now sub-circular in plan as the sides have come together, and rectangular in profile. The surface is corroded and has some iron staining on the exterior, and the circumferences of both the upper and lower edges are damaged but preserve short sections of the original edges: 8 mm on the lower edge and 2.5 mm on the upper edge. The outer face has been hand punched with four rows of irregularly-spaced circular pits or indentations. Egan (2005) on page 132, fig.126, no.648 illustrates a similar sewing ring from Fastolf Place, Southwark…

Fragment of a sheet copper alloy sieve or strainer, irregular in plan with all of the edges broken and uneven, but originally part of a circular object. Five complete, circular piercings remain, all between 2 and 2.5 mm in diameter. Remnants of at least four more piercings are visible around the edges and it appears that the piercings radiate form a central area and that their is a curved perimeter. The piercings appear to have all been punched from one face and the opposite inside face has black organic matter on the surface suggesting that it was probably used as part of a kitchen im…

Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy pendent loop, hexagonal in plan and in section and lozenge-shaped in profile with an internal aperture that is circular and 17 mm in diameter. Part of the surface of the outer edge are missing, partly due to the crudeness of manufacture and partly because of later corrosion; consequently, the diameter varies between 24 for the rounded edges and 26 mm for the squared off sides, and the thickness between 3.4 and 3.7 mm. There are patches of what appears to be black lacquer on the surface, which may have been applied to protect the ring from abrasion and corrosion. Bail…

Object type: CLOTH SEAL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a cast lead armorial cloth seal. The fragment consists of a strip, cut or torn across the diameter of a circular seal, 32 mm long, 14.5 mm wide and 1.5 mm thick, weighing 6 g. The fragment is damaged at both ends, so the precise diameter of the seal is uncertain. The front face is decorated with a double-arched St Edward's crown over a Tudor rose, within a ring of pellets. The back face is strengthened by a thicker band of lead, 3 mm wide, across the diameter of the seal. Egan (1994) illustrates a complete circular shaped cloth seal with an apparently identical design on…
