This object is probably a copper-alloy U-shaped padlock bolt from a box or barrel padlock. It has a rectangular split hinge terminal which is filled with corroded iron, this terminal measures 21mm in length and 6mm in width. Immediately after the terminal there is a circumferencial raised ridge, behind this, on the outer edge, there is a small circular projection with a central circular perforation. The shaft is then bent at right angles, forming a U-shape, 33mm in length, the terminal of which tapers to a rounded point. A similar U-shaped padlock bolt has been discovered at Winchester…

Solid copper-alloy end-cap from a knife handle. The end-cap is roughly flat and rectangular, with a concave flare taking it from 12 mm wide at the junction with the iron tang to 15 mm wide at the other end, which has a slight convex curve. It also flattens from 3.5 mm thick at the junction with the tang to 1 mm thick at the other end. Both faces have detailed relief decoration, now rather corroded and hard to make out. In the centre are two cut-outs which together form a drop-shaped perforation around an elaborately shaped central reserved element. Knife end-caps are often oval in cros…

Description: A small hoard of alloy Late Bronze Age metalwork, consisting of three incomplete and fragmentary socketed axes and five fragments of metalworking debris. One axe survives in better condition than the others, complete but for a missing section of the socket. The remaining portion of the socket is rectangular in cross-section and there is a raised rim around its outer end. Further moulding may be visible on each face behind this rim, but this is obscured by damage and corrosion. Extending along one side behind the socket rim is a low, integral, semi-circular loop. There is…

Update: this object can now be recognised as one of the discs from a post-medieval combination lock. Compare SUSS-BF6BE2, SUSS-E23432, NARC-890234, SUR-4E82D6, WAW-04DD90, ESS-32C082, KENT-AFC0C4, LIN-80D373, SF8892 and an example found near York, now in the British Museum (1992,0410.1). They appear to date to the late 16th or early 17th centuries. Original description: Unidentified hollow copper-alloy object, possibly a weight. It is circular, 13.5 mm in diameter, and 5.5 mm thick. One of the circular faces is closed with a key-hole-shaped cut-out consisting of a central circular pe…

Copper-alloy combination lock. It consists of five discs, originally movable, now corroded onto an axle between two outer discs which are joined by an arched hasp or shackle over the top of the discs. All of the discs are 16 to 17 mm in diameter, and well made from dark metal; the axle is of much rougher greener metal and is 5.5 mm in diameter. The loop consists of two projecting struts, 8 mm long and trapezoidal in cross-section; one continues into an arched semi-circle which meets and perhaps locks into the other strut. All but one of the central rotating discs each have six letters,…

Copper-alloy padlock of Winchester type C. The case is basically cylindrical, but is flattened on either side to give a wide facet which does not seem to carry any decoration; on both faces there is a longitudinal groove above the facet. One end is completely closed and the other end completely open; the open end is now blocked with hard pale green copper corrosion. On the underside of the case is a rectangular slot which runs the full width and nearly the full length of the padlock. It is bordered on one end by a decorative terminal projecting downward from the closed end; at the othe…

Strap clasp, with plate, frame and rotating end, all made from copper alloy. The plate is made from a strip folded in half and is now very fragmentary; a single incomplete rivet hole survives at the attachment end. The frame has strongly curved sides, each with a transverse moulding at either end. The rotating end is narrowed along one edge so that it can be wrapped around the outer edge of the frame. It has no bar-mount, but instead there is a quatrefoil of thicker copper-alloy sheet attached by a well-concealed single copper-alloy rivet. Total surviving length, 29 mm.

Frame and rotating end from a strap clasp, made from copper alloy. The frame is basically square, although the sides are slightly outcurved; each side has a small transverse moulding towards either end. The rotating end has a plate made from copper-alloy sheet, which is narrowed to fold around the outer edge of the frame. The wider part has a solid copper-alloy bar-mount attached to it by a single copper-alloy rivet; the bar-mount is set at a slightly oblique angle. The opened-out length is 21 mm, but when the rotating end is closed back onto the frame it measures 14.5 mm.

Frame and rotating end from a strap clasp. The frame is rectangular with slightly bowed-out sides bringing the width to 11 mm. There is a bar at either end, and a transverse moulding across the side at either end of each bar. One would originally have taken a long rectangular plate; the other is a little thicker and narrower and retains the rotating end. This is a rectangular sheet, wrapped around the bar at one end, with a transversely set 'bar-mount' attached with a single separate copper-alloy rivet; it served to hold the other part of the clasp in place. The frame is 14.5 mm long a…

Barb-spring padlock. The case is made from copper alloy, and is a flattish rectangle in cross-section. At one end it is broken, but remains of a vertical division into two spring holes can be seen. Here it measures 8 mm wide by 7 mm tall. It runs straight for a short distance, then flares out to 13.5 mm wide before gently curving back to 8 mm wide and running straight down to the keyhole end. The total surviving length is 27 mm. One face is undecorated, but the other has four crudely engraved longitudinal lines which follow the curving sides. There is also a hole in this face; it is ha…

Copper alloy padlock case fragment. The case is rectangular in section but swells in the centre when viewed from above or below. The bottom face is decorated with incised rocker lines which follow the margins and form a double wave along the centre.

Part of a swivel, consisting of a D-shaped ring and an oval-section swivelling element. The D-shaped ring has a strongly curved part with a stylised animal head at either end; between the animal heads is a narrowed bar.

The shaft would have fitted into a hollow globular central section, with another swivelling element and D-shaped ring at the other end. Both swivelling elements would be free to turn, held by one of the grooves, although the…
