Three fragments of late medieval - modern (c.1400-1900) bone button or bead making waste fragment. These are worked fragments from a long bone or rib, cut to form flat plates. The shorter fragment has one convex face, presumably from the outside surface of the bone. The largest fragment has a concave complete edge and is curving in shape. The larger, curving fragment (55.2x12.7x5.3mm) has seven incomplete circular holes 6-7mm in diameter, four of which are in two pairs and placed diagonally next to each other. The remainder are in a straight line. The smaller fragment (23.6x19.6x5.0mm…

A Post Medieval pinner's bone dating to the 16th century. This tool is made from a piece of a long bone that at one end has been trimmed and three sides have been roughly squared off. At this end there is one longitudinal grove on each of the squared off sides, on which pin shafts are thought to have been placed while they were being filed sharp. One half of the distal epiphysis is missing. Similar pinner's bones on the database are LON-CEBBB1 and LON-FAB471. Dimensions: length: 167.2mm; width: 35.46mm; thickness: 26.17mm; weight: 122.34g. These are relatively common finds fr…

A Post Medieval pinner's bone dating to the 16th century. This tool is made from the end of a long bone trimmed and roughly shaped. The working end has been shaped to form an irregular square in plan, there are also irregular cutmarks further down the shaft of the bone. At the working end there are an irregular series of longitundinal grooves, on which pin shafts are thought to have been placed while they were being filed sharp. There is some damage and wear to the entire surface of the bone. Similar pinner's bones on the database are LON-4B3233 and LON-93A393 Dimensions: leng…

An unfinished bone or ivory cuboid die, probably of late Medieval or Post Medieval date. The number 6 is indicated by drilled dot marks on one of the sides; the other 5 sides are blank. The die is similar in style to PAS record PUBLIC-96A5C9, but cannot be assigned to one of Potter's variant, due to the missing number arrangements. Bone dice were also used in the Roman period however, so an earlier date cannot be ruled out. The die is irregular in shape and measures 8.5mm by 8.3mm by 8.1mm, and weighs 1.2g.

Fragment of antler manufacturing waste, including the crown and part of the tine of the antler. The antler has been sawn up and this part discarded after use. The interior has been hollowed but is not smooth and still contains a large amount of the inner spongy material suggesting it has not been hollowed out as a socket. The antler is a grey-cream in colour with some orange staining possibly from contact with iron material on the foreshore. Antler is a commonly used material throughout history, especially in the later Early Medieval period. See MacGregor 1985 fig.42 for a demonstrati…

A Post Medieval pinner's bone (15-16th century). This tool is made from a cow or horse metapodial roughly trimmed at one end to a sub-rectangular shape (presumably for ease of holding rigid), and more finely trimmed to a rectangular shape at the other. At this end there are a series of grooves longitudinally, 2 per facet, on which pin shafts are thought to have ben rested while they were being filed sharp. These are relatively common finds from 16th century deposits in London, notably on the sites of former religious houses following the Dissolution (Egan 2005:138). Dimensions: len…

Two fragments of Late Medieval - Modern bone button or bead making waste fragment. These are two worked fragments from a long bone, cut to form flat plates. On the larger fragment there is one complete circular hole and one incomplete circular hole. On the smaller fragment there are one complete circular hole and four incomplete circular holes where discs have been cut from the fragments. This sort of object is impossible to date. MacGregor notes that they are found in Late Medieval to modern contexts (1985, 101). Dimensions: diameter of perforations on larger fragment: 10.06mm; …

A fragment of manufacturing waste or a broken unknown object. The object is formed of a rectangular block that tapers from one end to the other, giving an almost triangular appearance. At the widest end is a rectangular projection on one side. On the side with the projection is a vertical engraved line running the length of the object, with a second transverse line following the edge of the projection. On the projection are four circular impressions, two either side of the engraved line. The back of the object is incredibly rough with saw marks visible on the edge of the object, s…

Fourteen Roman to post medieval perforated oyster shells, probably manufacturing debris from obtaining mother-of-pearl, dating AD 43 to 1700. The oyster shells are unmodified other than the perforations that are handcut.The shapes of the perforations range from square or rectangular to round or oval. The majority are square or rectangular. Twelve of the perforations are square or rectangular, and two of the perforations are round or oval. None of the perforations are in a standardised location on the shell, but most of the perforations are located in the centre of the shells. The size…

Glass Manufacturing waste. A fragment of melted glass or cullet. All edges are rounded by melting, so it will have been subjected to temperatures in excess of 600 degrees centigrade. This makes it impossible to determine whether this was originally window or vessel glass. This object complements other evidence for high temperature processes in the area. The glass is not iridescent but bears a slight whitish surface deposit formed after it was melted, which suggests it may either be of Roman or recent date. Suggested date: Roman, 40-400. Weight: 2.78gms.
