Medieval circular seal matrix with a diameter of 27mm. Cast in copper alloy this matrix has a ridge on the reverse, which is triangular in profile with a central circular hole for suspension. The matrix has a central lozenge shape, possibly a shield, with a floral design. An incised line borders either side of the legend, however no impression was provided thus legend remains unknown.

Three quarters of a lead circular seal matrix. Missing section is probably the very top of the matrix, meaning that the legend is illegible at that point. Back appears to have been flat and plain, although there may have been a small protrusion at the centre back. Thickened section above may be the flattened remains of the suspension loop. Device: Remains of an eight-petalled compass flower. Measurements: 30 mm x 26 mm; original diameter 30 mm plus.

Two adjoining pieces of a lead circular seal matrix, some 85% of the total. Missing section is the bottom right, but the edge is also damaged at the top left, meaning that the legend is illegible at that point. Back retains evidence of a cast design, possibly a small fleur-de-lys or double loop in the centre. Small raised section above is the remains of the base of the suspension loop. Device: remains of an eight-petalled compass flower, with the breaks being along the flower petals. Measurements: larger piece (almost exactly half of the original matrix); 32 mm x 18 mm; smaller piece:…

The original record had no description. The following description was compiled from the photographs. Copper-alloy seal matrix, flat and pointed-oval in shape. The central motif is a very simple engraved cross with seriffed ends. The inscription around is between beaded borders, and reads * S' PRIS. ROGERI DE. OS. PITAL' The meaning of this inscription is currently obscure but it clearly refers to a Roger of the Hospital. Reaney and Wilson note a Geoffrey del Hospital in Somerset in 1210 (1976, 329, under Spittle). The reverse is flat, with a rib at one end which tapers to a po…

Lead circular seal matrix, damaged across centre due to being folded in centre. Back plain, with no suspension loop remaining; may have been at top originally. Device: in profile, a bird of prey (identifiable by its hooked beak) facing left, its wings are raised as when landing or taking off. The legs are positioned in such a way as to suggest that it is running, which accords with the idea of landing or take-off. Legend separated from device by a line. Measurements: 38 mm diameter.

Copper alloy circular seal matrix, plain flat back with slight raised midrib suspension loop intact at top. Device of a knight on horseback, sword in raised right hand, looking (?) back over his shoulder. He appears to be wearing a rather short mail hauberk, a fully developed 'great helm' and carrying a tapered 'knightly sword' (hilt indistinct). He wears a long surcoat but his horse is unadorned. There is some sort of cuff indicated on the sword hand. The whole is placed above a fleur-de-lys, with what appears to be a crescent between the sword arm and the horse's raised tail. Device …

A flat copper alloy vesica-shaped (pointed oval) seal matrix, reverse with suspension loop intact at top of raised midrib. Device of a "pelican in her piety", i.e., a female pelican pecking at her breast in order to draw the blood with which she feeds her chicks in the nest below her. The nest is set in a tree, whose trunk stops short of the lettering area, ending in a point; the whole scene fills all the available area quite tightly. Device separated from the legend by a neat groove; a similar line marks the outer edge of the matrix face. A third groove at the top of the lettering ma…
