Cast Russian lead cloth seal with the letters: *S P / C T. R H / *177 on one face and *A C* / KAPONI / II I O O* on the other face John Sullivan writes: DATED SIDE: 1. SP: probably stands for St Petersburg and occurs on 16 other seals in my records, all but one from Scotland. The single other one with SP is from Mistley not far from Colchester in Essex, even though it is held in Suffolk at Bury St Edmunds. 2. The date of 177? is likely as seals recovered with dates in the 1770s (91) are the more numerous than in the rest of the 18th century, with the exception of the 1790s (wh…

A group of 43 worked flints, cores and waste flint fragments found in a period of 105 minutes on bare ground on the access strips in a daffodil bulb field. The scatter concentrates towards a bend in a brook with the closest approach foiled by field boundary and country lane. Back from the stream the flints peter out to nearly zero then increase to where the stream is crossed again and the 850+ scatter recorded as CORN-3A0FF2 etc on the other side. The small group recorded here as far as can be seen includes elements from The Mesolithic through to the Bronze Age and is likely another …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy Roman toiletry implement, with an oval spoon bowl at one end, probably an ear scoop or ligula, and a pointed bifid terminal at the other end, which might have been used as a nail cleaner . The toiletry implement is now bent into a V-shape but would have originally been straight. Roman toiletry implements often have multiple functions, with a tool at each end of the copper alloy rod. Bailey (2008) illustrates a similar bronze probe with a bowl terminal on page 25, Fig.C7.14, which is dated from the Roman period. Crummy (1983) illustrates a similar nail cleaner on …

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete cast copper alloy harness fitting with a large circular rivet in the hollowed back of the attachment terminal, which is tear-shaped in plan. The terminal narrows into a recessed section which is oval in plan, beyond which is a raised bifid border, looking like a sepal from the end of the stem of a flower. The handle then tapers to a straight-sided stem which is oval in section, and broken at the end so the the other terminal is missing. The back of the rivet is 15 mm in diameter, so it would have held something of some weight, but the strap that it was attached to could onl…

Cast copper alloy bead, circular in plan and oval in profile, with a flattened top and bottom. The bead has been drilled once cast, so that it has a central perforation that is circular in plan and an hour-glass shape in profile. The initial aperture is 7 mm in diameter and then it narrows to the inner hole which is 4 mm in diameter. The surface of the bead is slightly pitted and damaged around the edge of the aperture but the general patina is a rich green colour and has survived well. Beads with similar plans and profiles have been recorded on this database as dating from the Iron…

Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Slate spindle whorl, oval in plan and flat in profile, with parallel faces, a smooth flat edge, and a slightly off-centre perforation. The perforation is about 6 mm in diameter at the surface of each face, and has been drilled from each face, but has only just met in the middle, exposing a small hole about 0.6 mm in diameter. Both of the apertures are off-centre, suggesting that the whorl would not be quite balanced while used in the spinning process, and perhaps this is why the piece was never completed. Slate is commonly used in the county for spindle whorls as it is light and easy …

Object type: END SCRAPER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
End scraper worked on a flake of grey translucent flint with opaque cream inclusions. It appears to have been a plunging flake from a core as there are parallel scars on the dorsal surface with a hinged termination to one of them. The end scraper scars are parallel and semi-abrupt and work around on to the right margin and finish with a sharp notch. Shaunie found a large deeply concave section granite saddle quern fragment nearby.(632B.1). Butler illustrates a similar end scraper on page 166, fig 70, 5.

Found by Shauney Strick;A large piece of flint for this area which has been flaked off the end of a nodule. Flakes have been removed from the edge of the platform created and have shallowly removed cortex from the dorsal surface. The edge has been heavily abraded in places as though localised deliberate use for a grinding or strike-a-light task. There is an overall water worn appearance. There is fresher abrasion to the tip of the tool and this might be recent plough damage or reuse after the tumbling in water. Butler describes strike-a-lights from prehistoric to Medieval times on page 17.
