Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a tinned cast copper alloy buckle frame, annular or shuttle-shaped in plan with a drilled frame for a separate spindle to take the pin and chape. The hole for the spindle survives in the centre of the outer border of the frame, but the spindle, pin, chape and rest of the frame are all missing. The frame has an inner and outer border with an interlaced, openwork, floral design. The outer border has a row of single stamped annulets and the inner border is like a mask with two eyelets on either side of a central rosette. There is evidence of tinning on the upper surface of th…

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…

Cast copper alloy leg from a small cauldron or large skillet, sub-triangular in plan and plano-convex in section. The attachment to the vessel body still remains, and the leg then tapers evenly to the foot which is worn to a rounded end. Three wide ridges remain on the outer face of the leg, varying in width, which terminate at the transverse collar which divides the leg from the foot. The foot would have originally also been ridged, but it is now so worn it has lost its claw-like terminal. The centre of the outer face of the foot still projects outwards, however, representing the arc…

Cast lead pilgrim ampulla or holy water flask, almost rectangular in shape, with a short neck flattened closed to seal it. The ampulla is slightly waisted with angular loops, on either side at this point, to suspend the flask from a cord around the pilgrim's neck. It is decorated on one face with fleur de lis and lattice within a shield, surmounted by a two concentric circles with radiating lines between them. On the opposite face there are four fleurs de lis beneath an arch of lattice work which has triangles and crescents above it, perhaps part of a crown. These ampullae were bought…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete cast copper alloy Aesica-variant brooch, likely another Cornish Type 31 (Bayley, Butcher & Tyacke, 2011), judging from the length of the crossbar, with long narrow wings, and the form of its junction with the bow, at the head where there is a perforation for a stud, and a circular plate bow with a central perforation, again missing its stud. There are two slight projections or knops on either side of the disc plate, which might have held studs, creating a cruciform shape typical of the Cornish Type 31, but the thin and flat plate is not typical of the type. The fantail foot…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy palstave or flanged axe blade, trapezoidal in plan, rhomboidal in profile and rectangular in section, at the broken end. The opposite blade end tapers to a rounded and damaged edge in profile. The blade is broad and incurved or inturned, instead of flanged, at the cutting edge and has the remains of what might be the tip of a moulded 'V' or shield at the broken end, but this is made more pronounced by corrosion, and it does not extend any further down the centre of the blade. On the opposite face there is a large cavity near the broken edge which was probably where a…

Copper alloy mining workers pay cheque token or tally with the words: PAY CHECK stamped in the legend around the number '7' on the obverse of the token. The reverse is blank and the token has been perforated for suspension. These tallies were used as part of a system for ensuring the correct pay by 'checking' in and out of the workplace prior to machines being produced for this specific purpose. 'Checks' were often 'holed' for hanging on boards. In mining, for example, a number on the check was personal to each miner and prior to going down the pit, the miner would give one of his tal…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Broken cast copper alloy bit from the end of a soldering iron rod, square in plan and section and rectangular in profile, which was used for tinning or soldering in order to repair copper alloy vessels and other items. There is some iron corrosion product at the broken square end of the bit, which is where a steel pin would have been connected to the copper bit. The other end of the steel pin would have been connected to a wooden handle. The copper bit tapers to a pointed end which has been flattened and rounded through heating and use, to apply a lead/tin alloy solder. The material a…

Cast lead fishing weight, lozenge-shaped in plan, plano-convex in profile and triangular in section, with tapering ends, which have been pinched and perforated with ovoid holes to suspend the sting at either end, around the protruding rectangular knops. This weight was most likely tied into fishing nets, due to its size and shape, and these are commonly found in Cornwall, but are difficult to date.

Object type: AXEHEAD ROUGHOUT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete axehead roughout made from a gabbroic greenstone cobble that is finer grained and more doleritic than other examples from this area. The interrelationship between the weathering, fracture and possible grinding of the cobble are very complex. The butt end is rounded and damaged, and the blade end has completely worn away so that the roughout is now waisted and narrower at the blade end, where it tapers to a point in profile. Half of the ventral face is also missing, where a section has sheared off and left a stepped projection towards the butt end of the roughout. Several fl…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Broken blade end of an axehead roughout of coarse gabbroic greenstone, U-shaped in plan, lozenge-shaped in profile and oval in section. There is a defined yet damaged cutting edge at the blade end, and the entire surface is deeply pitted and weathered. The roughout is broken in half so that the butt end is missing. This is one of a group of 14 stone tools described as 'potential axes' that have been found on Clodgy Moor or Trungle Moor in Paul parish. A few of these have distinct areas where grinding has been carried out to start a blade. The remainder have a broadly axe-shaped outlin…

Fragment of gabbroic greenstone cobble, triangular in plan and in profile and circular in section. The piece is broken at one end and tapers to a point at the other, to form a conical shape, similar to the pointed butt end of an axe. The surface appears to have been ground into this shape, rather than weathered, and there is a large spur projecting from the broken end at one edge, which seems to have formed naturally into two concentric protrusions. This is one of a group of 14 stone tools described as 'potential axes' that have been found on Clodgy Moor or Trungle Moor in Paul parish…

Weathered cobble of greenstone, oval in plan and ovoid in profile and section. There is rough working over the whole of the surface of the flat oval shape which may have once been an axehead roughout, and has since been broken and weathered. One end tapers more to a rounded point, but there is no clear blade or butt end. The ventral face is more flat, mainly through weathering, while the dorsal face is more pecked. This is one of a group of 14 stone tools described as 'potential axes' that have been found on Clodgy Moor or Trungle Moor in Paul parish. A few of these have distinct area…

Weathered cobble of metamorphic slate deriving ultimately from the granite aureole, which has been shaped into an axehead roughout, now broken. The roughout is rhomboidal in plan, and lozenge-shaped in profile and in section. The blade end tapers to a point in both plan and profile, so the cutting edge is missing, and the butt end has broken off. The ventral face is more ground down, mainly through weathering, while the dorsal face is more flaked and damaged.
