Record ID: CORN-935380
Object type: POT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pottery body sherd with an oblique line of single twisted cord-impressed decoration running across the left side of the exterior of the sherd. The sherd is made of gabbroic clay that weathers over the gabbro outcrop on the Lizard in Cornwall. The fabric has inclusions of pale felspars, dark augite and mica, and is orangey-brown on the exterior and on the interior of the sherd, and throughout the core. This gabbroic fabric and type of decoration are seen on comparable local Grooved Ware vessels, dating from c.2900-2400 BC (Henrietta Quinnell, forthcoming). Anna Brindley in Cleal and …

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy fragment of a flanged blade from a socketed axe, semi-circular in plan, triangular in profile and lozenge-shaped in section. The blade edge is worn and incomplete so that it is only flanged on one side. The broken edge reveals an oblong aperture which is the end of the socket for the haft or handle of the axe. The original surface has mostly corroded away and there are patches of light green bronze disease. There is not enough detail to precisely date this fragment within the Late Bronze Age, but some comparanda are offered below. Pearce (1983) illustrates a simila…

Object type: SOCKETED AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy fragment of a collar from a socketed axe, semi-circular in plan, B-shaped in profile and in section. The collar is quite substantial at about 12 mm deep and 9 mm thick, and there is quite a deep indented area below it before the body of the axe begins with a raised ridge. Along this ridge at one side of the axe is the remains of the base of the side loop, which has worn into a point. The surface is pitted and some of the original patina remains on the collar but the projecting sections have become worn and corroded and there are patches of light green bronze disease.…

Incomplete silver denarius of Hadrian (AD 117-138), [HADRIANVS] AVG COS III P P which dates the coin to c.AD 134-138 within his reign, but the reverse is worn and the original surface missing, so it cannot be defined, apart from a central figure standing right with a tall structure to the right, perhaps a parazonium, or perhaps another figure but they are too close together for ADVENTVS AVG type.

Silver Republican denarius with most of the original surface now missing, and some corrosion product which appears as raised pellets and curved lines which suggest that the surface may have been exposed to some heat in the past. The coin is too worn to be able to identify it within this period and likely dates from c.211-27 BC.

Broad period: ROMAN
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Silver Republican denarius with only four letters left on the obverse NIVS and a bare head facing right with curly hair and no beard and a defined angular mark at the base of the neck. So perhaps it is a denarius with the head and legend of Marcus Antonius, or Mark Antony (83-30 BC), but must date from at least the time of the Second Triumvirate with Octavian, established in 43 BC. The closest parallels that the recorder can find are on coins from the east, c.32-31 BC, with small lettering behind the head, and the best example of these is illustrated in BMC, Republic III (1970) on Pla…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Sheet copper alloy mount or escutcheon plate in the form a flower with a central raised roundel and four trefoil petals in a cross formation. One of the central petals in one of the four groups has broken away so that it is flush with the other two petals either side. This broken edge may have originally been extended to form an arm of a handle for a drawer or as a decorative mount on an item of furniture. The back of the mount has an open circular hole, which is about 6 mm in diameter, where the mount has been punched from behind to form the central roundel on the front. It does not …

Cast copper alloy, likely brass, knob terminal from a door or drawer handle, circular in plan and semi-circular in profile. The fitting is in the form of a daisy with a central raised dome. The dome is defined and bordered by two concentric rings which are surrounded by twelve petals that form the flower. The back of the fitting has a raised circular setting with a central hole, about 5 mm in diameter, which has several ridges to take the securing bolt, now missing, that would have fixed the knob to the door or drawer. Bailey (1993) illustrates similar examples on page 20, Nos.47 & …

Incomplete cast copper alloy dress hook fastener with the hook end having been bent straight and the loop end broken and missing. Two pointed projections are all that remain of the base of the attachment loop. The body of the fastener is circular in plan and domed in profile with a larger central raised pellet and six smaller pellets around it, representing a six-petalled flower, with six larger pellets alternating with these, as the larger petals, all within a border of smaller pellets. Bailey (1992) illustrates a similar example on page 30, No.12, which is dated from the 16th cent…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy jews harp, with bevelled edges so that it is lozenge-shaped in section, which flattens out as the body extends into the tapering arms. At the apex of the loop there are two parallel grooves where the iron tongue would have been attached originally. This small lyre-shaped musical instrument was used by holding the frame between the teeth and striking the iron tongue with the fingers. They were used from the Medieval period right up to the 18th century, but the earlier ones are often forged iron, are decorated with punchwork or engraving, have 'barleytwist' loops, and …

Object type: BUTTON
Broad period: MODERN
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy button, circular in plan and flat in profile, with a central circular setting which contains a blue glass stone. The stone has since been chipped so that it almost looks hexagonal, but was originally more facetted. The upper face of the button also appears to have a pattern of cross-hatching involving groups of five parallel lines at right angles to each other and overlapping to look like textile, but most of the original surface has corroded away. The back of the button has an oval attachment loop, now 5mm in length, which was probably originally circular but has si…

Object type: SPUR
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete cast copper alloy spur with only one terminal remaining, the other side having been broken in antiquity. The sides of the spur have been bent outwards and the terminal has been bent back towards the side that it would have originally been in line with. The terminal is an enclosed sub-rectangle in profile and this type is often found paired with a circular terminal on the other side in Medieval examples, such as on iron prick spurs; but the style of the moulded neck and rowel box suggests that this spur dates from the Post-medieval period and so there would probably have bee…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy rim fragment from a large bowl or cooking vessel with an internally bevelled rim that is semi-circular in section and flush with the upper edge of the vessel. The body of the vessel curves downwards slightly to suggest a reasonably deep straight-sided bowl or a deep straight-sided everted rim, as seen on cauldrons, and the curvature of the rim suggests a large diameter of about 320 mm. The bevelled rim itself is 4.7 mm thick which then tapers to the body which is 4 mm thick. Egan (2005) illustrates a similar example of a bowl fragment with a flared rim and straight…

Cast copper alloy receptacle leg, probably from a small cauldron or skillet, triangular in plan, profile and section, with a large central mid-rib, flanked by a slightly narrower rib either side, and tapering from the triangular fragment of the body of the vessel at its upper end, to a pointed end at its foot. The back of the leg is flat and the end of the foot is worn, particularly on one side from use wear, so that it looks deliberately narrowed or pinched. Read (1988) illustrates a similar example on page 96, no.596, which is dated from the 13th to the 17th century. Butler & …

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a cast copper alloy bowl, from the base of the rim, following the curvature of the body of the bowl and tapering towards the base where it has broken away from the vessel. The curvature in profile shows that the bowl would not have been very deep, perhaps 120 mm in depth. The the curvature in plan suggests that the bowl would have been about 260 mm in diameter. Egan (2005) illustrates a similar example of a bowl fragment with a curved body on page 99, Fig.85, No.443, which is dated from c.1550-1600.
