Beneath these, on all sides is a border of tiny dotted or dashed indents. Around the bottom of the bezel is a slight flanged rim. This is decorated with a running motif of raised hollow squares and solid dashes. The underneath of …

County: Essex

An important and unusual find of an 8th century, silver Anglo Saxon sceat of 'monitascorum' type. Normally this type has 'MONITA SCORVM' on the obverse, but in this case has the 'DE LVNDONIA' inscription of series L instead. Michael Metcalf, Thrymsas and Sceattas' (Oxford, 1993), p. 435 noted one other specimen of this variant at the time of publication, which he described as a 'unique and highly interesting coin'. If the inscriptions are taken at face value this is an ecclesiastical issue ('Moneta Sanctorum') from London, presumably issued for a bishop of London. The coin recorded…

County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of Roman glass prismatic bottle. The clearly defined 90-degree angle on the fragment shows that it is a body sherd from one corner of a square shaped bottle. Apart from the one clear edge, the fragment is irregular to both sides. It is made from a thick, light blue-green glass with a high number of bubbles. The fragment is 34.48mm long, 4.2mm thick and weighs 4.02g. Bottles with square bodies were in use in the 1st and 2nd centuries. They were used for the transport and storage rather than as tablewares. See Cool and Price, 1995, Roman vessel glass from excavations in Colchest…

County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of Roman glass, probably from a conical beaker used for drinking. The glass fragment is colourless, small and irregular. The profile of the fragment suggests it is from the concave bottom of the vessel, perhaps the very centre as there is a central dimple and nipple. The fragment is 1.62mm thick and weighs 0.33g. Conical beakers of greenish glass dominate 4th century assemblages, however there may be evidence that colourless beakers were produced from the late 3rd century (see Cool and Price, 1995, Roman vessel glass from excavations in Colchester, 1971-1985, page 90).

Cast copper alloy mount. The mount is circular in plan and flat in section. One side is decorated with a moulded, slightly raised letter I entwined and passing through the centre bar of a letter S. Around the letters are irregular incised short dashes and lines, not quite cross-hatched, but used to fill the empty field around the central design. The reverse of the mount is plain. There are no signs of attachment to the reverse. The edges of the mount are irregular in places, but the object does appear to be mostly complete. The surface of the mount survives with an even mid green patin…

Cast copper alloy mount, probably late medieval. The mount is subcircular in plan and domed in section with a recessed reverse. It shows a human face of indeterminable gender. The face is moulded with a hairstyle that frames each side of the face. It has a grooved centre parting with two transverse grooves that breaks the top of the hairstyle into three rows. There are incised diagonal lines along the rows of hair which give it a textured detail. The face is moulded with a prominent triangular nose, now slightly damaged. The eyes are formed from incised lentoids with central dots. The …

Complete cast copper alloy late medieval or post medieval knife stop. The stop is an elongated hexagonal in plan and rectangular in section and possibly represents a sledgehammer head. When viewed in profile it has one straight edge and one set on a slight diagonal (presumably the bottom edge?). To both top and bottom faces of the stop are the remains of the iron tang.

Clipped silver siliqua, probably of Gratian (367-83), VRBS ROMA, probably Trier or Aquileia, AD 375-8. RIC IX, c.f. Trier 46b/64a and Aquileia 15b. It is possible that this is a barbarous imitation. The original record states it is base metal, but this might not be the case as the coin is clipped.

This record compromises a large number of pottery vessel sherds from a discrete area, namely an area of domestic dumping from a house of unknown origins that was demolished in 1817. The house is visible as a cropmark under the right conditions. The material was recovered by the landowner during the digging of a water main which prompted further investigation. Helen Walker of Essex County Council kindly scanned the material and provided short notes. A selection of animal bone was also recovered at the same time and is recorded as ESS-17E485. Tray 1 Slip-painted, unglazed sherds of Col…

Cast copper alloy Roman mount, probably a furniture fitting or similar. The mount is circular in plan and domed in section. The bottom of the mount is formed from a circular disc, with a deep circumfral-grooved line. Rising up from the centre of the disk is the main domed body of the mount, slightly smaller in diameter. This is plain. Extending from the top of the dome is a circular sectioned projection or ‘neck’, which flares slightly. The neck then becomes wasted and then terminates in a globular knop. To the flat underside of the mount are the remains of an iron shaft, now obscu…

Incomplete copper alloy Roman ‘T’ shaped brooch of ‘sawfish’ type, now in two parts. This brooch has complete side wings that are cylindrical in shape, with a slot to accommodate the pin shaft. They are now slightly flattened. The wings would have held a hinged pin. The pin is missing, though the wings may hold the remains of the axis bar, which might be evidenced, by a small spot of brown corrosion at one end of the wings. The wings are decorated with two raised vertical lines to either end, these lines being further decorated along their length with a row of incised V shapes.…

Cast copper alloy Roman mount sometimes known as a ‘bell shaped stud’. It consists of a disc that is 18.8mm in diameter and 2.64mm high from which extends a circular shafted ‘neck’ for 2.44mm. The ‘neck’ is slightly stepped having a diameter of 13.44mm. The ‘neck flares out into a wide, shallow bell shape, 6.48mm long and 23.82mm in diameter.

Incomplete cast copper alloy handle from a Roman ‘mandolin’ spoon. The incomplete shaft of the handle is rectangular in section, 2.28mm thick and tapers dramatically from 3mm to 1.64mm at the break point.

There is a small projecting knop on the same plain and thickness at the top of the curve, and at the bottom of the curve is an integral transverse, flange. The projection is where the separate ma…
