  • Thumbnail image of DUR-B9D6B8

Record ID: DUR-B9D6B8
Object type: MACE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: County Durham
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete copper alloy Macehead of Medieval date (AD 1250-1400). The object consists of a hollow cylinder with three rows, each of four pyramid-shaped spikes at the top of the mace. Each of the rows is offset 90 degrees from the adjacent row. As is usual for these maceheads, the upper and lower rows are of half-pyramid-shaped spikes, while those on the central row are of full pyramid shape. Their military function is less than assured. Daubney (A Decade of discovery: Proceedings of the PAS conference 2007; British Archaeological Reports 520; 2010) stated the possibility that they may…

Copper alloy hollow cast knobbed mace head, 58mm in diameter, 24mm high. The shaft hole is 17mm in diameter. The mace has twelve pyramidal knobs in three rows of four, consisting of four four-sided knobs and eight three-sided knobs (half knobs). The mace shows signs of extensive wear. There is no metal shaft extending below the head as in many other European examples. A ferrous corrosion product caps the top of the mace hole, which was probably originally a fitting that secured the mace head onto a wooden shaft. Wood fragments are present inside the hole. The earliest known maces origi…
