Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy spectacle or double-loop buckle frame with bevelled inside edge and flat back so that it is semi-circular in section. The pin bar is also bevelled on both sides and therefore narrowed, but it is flush with the frame with a recessed groove at either end where it meets the frame. The frame is decorated with oblique lines which change angle as they move around each loop, creating a rope effect. The pin is missing but the original surface remains, although with some scratches and corrosion. Whithead (1996) illustrates similar spectacle buckles with oblique engraved lin…

Object type: SIEVE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete sheet copper alloy sieve or strainer, circular in plan with irregular circular punches or perforations roughly made from one face. The roundel has been irregularly cut out of sheet and its edge is uneven where sections have broken off or been torn away, leaving open perforations. The object has been hand-made and was perhaps used as part of a kitchen implement or as a drainage filter and looks to be Medieval in date. A similar example was found at Hellesvean, St Ives, excavated from houses dated from the 12th century (Preston-Jones & Rose, CAJ 25, 1986, 146). Egan (2005…

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy rim fragment from a bowl with an everted beaded rim that is sub-square in section as it has been flattened on its upper, outer and lower edges. The body of the vessel curves downwards slightly to suggest a reasonably deep bowl and the curvature of the rim suggests a diameter of about 200 mm. The rim itself is 4 mm thick which is twice as thick as the body of the vessel. Egan (2005) illustrates a similar example of a bowl fragment with an everted rolled rim on page 98, Fig.85, No.441, which is dated from the late 15th to the early 16th century. Ottaway and Rogers …

Folded sheet copper alloy nail or tack with a flattened ovoid head in plan, and triangular in profile, with a shaft that tapers to a point. The sheet has been folded around to form a cone shape, with one layer overlapping the other at the head and down one side of the tack. The outer edge of the head has worn away, the top layer more than that underneath, where it is starting to separate. The upper face has two triangular indents where it may have been lightly hammered, pressed or punched. Presumably used for shallow connections or small repairs, due to its size and strength. The fi…

Copper alloy seal matrix with a circular die and upright handle. The handle of the matrix is hexagonal in cross-section, and tapers and then widens to a hexagonal collar below a suspension loop that is lozenge-shaped in profile with a circular perforation. The circular die (face of the seal) depicts a heart in the centre that is being clasped by two hands with cuffs. Between the wrists is a four-petalled flower and the heart is bordered by foliage on either side. The inscription is set between two simple ridged lines and reads *PRIEVE SV E PLEIN D'A which can be understood as PRIEVE SV…

Cast copper alloy open-top thimble or sewing ring flattened on one side so that it is now D-shaped in plan and rectangular in profile. The external face of the hoop has four irregular horizontal and concentric lines of large sub-square, almost circular indentations which vary in definition due to the level of corrosion. The flattened side is more worn and the rounded side more corroded with patches of bronze disease. Read (1988) illustrates a similar example on page 76, No.436, which is dated from the 15th century.

Cast copper alloy heraldic harness pendant, shield-shaped in plan, with a rectangular suspension mount that still retains its two rivets. The face of the shield has a pattern of four alternating pronounced and recessed horizontal waves with bulbous projections or 'nebuly' (from the Latin nebula or cloud) defined by four incised lines running horizontally across the shield. The surface is quite corroded but still has evidence of enameling in the form of the blackened recessed squares alternating with those with a more green patina. The enamel may have been red on a background of possib…

Fragment of a cast copper alloy ingot or 'cake', oval in plan, and almost triangular in profile and section, but with an uneven base from the solidified lumps of molten metal. The side and upper surface are smoother but still have circular pits. The molten copper alloy would have been poured into a mould with a slightly rounded base, echoing the curvature of the side and upper surface, and allowed to cool until it was solid. The undulating lower surface represents the formation of air pockets, with troughs beside where the molten metal would have run away. The colour, texture, shape a…

Cast copper alloy ingot or 'cake', oval in plan, and almost plano-convex in profile and section, but with an uneven base from the solidified lumps of molten metal. The upper surface is smoother but still has many deep circular pits. The molten copper alloy would have been poured into a mould with a slightly rounded base, echoing the curvature of this upper surface, and allowed to cool until it was solid. The undulating lower surface represents the formation of air pockets, the largest one of which seems to have burst. The colour, texture, shape and formation of the ingot suggests that…

The back of the ampulla has a circular stamp, following the curvature of the body, with a crescent wi…
