Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead alloy bridle boss, or harness mount, circular in plan and plano-convex in profile, missing its rectangular attachment loops for the strap. The boss has a plain raised circle in the centre, with a recessed groove beyond and then two concentric borders: the first is a raised wavy line and the second is a line of raised squares, each with a circular perforation and defined by a recessed transverse groove. The closest parallel on the database is YORYM-9D5048 which is dated from the 18th century. Read (1988) illustrates similar plain centres and multi-roundel borders on lead …

Object type: INGOT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a cast copper alloy plano-convex ingot, sub-triangular in plan and profile, and plano-convex in section. The fragment rises up from its semi-circular outer edge, which is about 10 mm in thickness, to the centre of the ingot, where it is broken, and 27 mm in thickness or height. The two sides which look deliberately waisted may have been filed after sections were taken out of the ingot, and have since worn smooth and corroded to form rounded yet defined rectangular edges. There are also a few pits in the base, side and upper surface, which were probably formed from air pock…

Object type: BUTTON

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pressed and stamped three-part hollow domed gilt copper alloy button with separate soldered attachment loop, embossed with the Royal coat of arms, consisting of a crowned garter with a lion to the left and unicorn to the right, with the legend HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE (the French phrase meaning: "Shamed be he who thinks evil of it") within the Royal Garter. From these details and the size of the button, it appears to be a General Service cap button, which were introduced in 1871 and in use until 1924 when a variety of regimental buttons were re-introduced (Meredith & Cuddeford, 1997,…

Pressed and stamped three-part hollow domed gilt copper alloy naval button with separate soldered attachment loop, embossed with the crown of George III to William IV c.1760-1837 (Meredith & Cuddeford, 1997, 42) over a the 'foul' anchor, where the anchor is entangled with a cable, within linear and ropework borders, and on a background of parallel transverse incised lines. The back of the button is too corroded and encrusted to make out the back mark and only the base of the attachment loop remains. In 1774 a foul anchor surrounded by rope edging took the place of the rose and in 17…

Pressed and stamped three-part hollow domed copper alloy button with separate soldered attachment loop at the back. The front of the button depicts, in relief, the Prince of Wales plume of three feathers within a coronet with the motto ICH / DIEN in a scroll on either side. The three feathers and the motto "lch Dien", German for "I Serve", go back to Edward (1330-1376), the eldest son of Edward III. He was known as the 'Black Prince' because he had his suit of armour painted black, a very unusual thing at the time. He later became the Prince of Wales and the three feathers and coronet…

Cast copper alloy hollow-domed, die-cut, two-piece button with a soldered circular attachment loop at the back. The front of the button depicts the 'Ordnance' shield (Ivall & Thomas, 1974, p.42) with three artillery guns, one above the other, surmounted by a band with three bezants in a row, alternating with piles of shot. The surface of the button is very worn and corroded and would have originally been plated but no evidence of that now survives. The button is probably stamped with the words 'PORTREATH ARTILLERY VOLUNTEERS' from left to right on either side and above the shield, but…

Cast copper alloy two-piece domed button with soldered attachment loop. The face of the button is very worn and hard to make out but the back mark is clear: .FIRMIN & WESTALL. STRAND which operated in London from c.1794-1812. The letters within the seven-pointed star of the Order of the Garter, surmounted by a crown, appear to be D G which stands for Dragoon Guards, with an X above them which would stand for the 10th Regiment which became the Prince of Wales' Own Hussars in 1806. At this time the buttons depicted the Prince of Wales feathers so this button must pre-date 1806. The mott…

Object type: SHOT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast iron shot, spherical in shape, with pitted surface, but with most of the surface iron corrosion product having fallen away since it was found, leaving the original object. The shot is about an inch and a quarter in diameter, or 39 mm, which could have been used by the smaller artillery pieces like the 'base', or small cannon, which was the smallest of the 'standard' list of guns of the late 16th century, at one and a quarter inch calibre, but equally could have been used as grape shot for some of the larger pieces. In the 17th century, during the Civil War, any iron object was us…
