A copper alloy and iron handle probably from a knife of medieval or post-medieval date. The core of the object is iron with an oval cross section measuring 16mm in width and 16mm thick. Surmounting the top of the iron is a worn moulded figure. The figure is holding something small, possibly a baby or a lamb and has its head resting on the top of the baby/animal's head. The figure appears to be seated with one leg crossed over the other. At the rear of the figure drapery suggests a dress or coat. The drapery is not visible at the front of the figure and the legs appear to be bare. The …

Iron unidentified object. A fragmentary socketed wrought iron tool or weapon fragment comprising parts of an expanded socket and a tapered rectangular section blade or point with a wedge-shaped tip. Abraded and corroded, though with reasonable survival of the metal core, which is inferred from the weight of the object. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1500.

County: Lincolnshire

An incomplete, post-medieval, iron rowel spur dating to circa AD 1600- AD 1700. The sides of the spur are D-shaped in section, wider and thicker at their central point, tapering and narrowing towards the terminals. Both arms end in old breaks with the terminals missing. The neck of the spur is circular in section with an incomplete rowel box that curves downwards slightly from the straight neck. The recess to hold the rowel, which is missing, is now filled with iron corrosion. Measurements are difficult, due to the build up of corrosion, but the neck and rowel box are 26mm in length:…

Object type: STUD
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete iron stud of uncertain date, possibly medieval c.AD 1000 - 1500. The head of the stud is sub-square with rounded corners and a D-shaped section. A square sectioned shank projects centrally from the base of the head, tapering to a curved blunted end. The curve of the terminal results in a roughly J-shaped object. The metal has a mid-brown/orange patina and is heavily corroded. The head of the stud is 56.4mm x 51.7mm and 18.1mm thick. The shank is 17.8mm x 16.2mm tapering to 8.5mm x 5.4mm.

An incomplete medieval iron barrel padlock. The fragment includes the circular 'cap' end and part of the internal mechanism. The cylindrical outer casing and locking arm are now missing. The remaining internal spring mechanism comprises three rectangular slots or arms; two are set parallel to one another, while the third appears to be set at a right angle to the other two. The three arms extend beyond the circular cap and curve to form a loop of three arms. Examples illustrated in Egan (1998:92-93) dates these to the 13th to 15th centuries AD. For a similar example see PAS reference …

Post medieval iron spearhead or pike blade? Length: 1200 mm, width: 29 mm, thickness: 25 mm, weight: 178.00 g The object has a triangular form and a lozenge shaped sub rectangular cross section, which becomes circular near its base. It tapers in width slightly to a point and has a prominent ridge running down the centre of each blade. At its base there is a circular opening which has a small circular hole in one side just above its damaged edge, so it appears intact in length. As the object is iron the most obvious date would be post medieval and it may be a componenet of several objects.

Object type: SCYTHE
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron possible scythe fragment. The curved tip from a broad straight wrought iron blade of V section. The size and form are both similar to that of an Anglo-Saxon or Anglo-Scandinavian scythe blade reported by David Haldenby from Cottam, East Riding of Yorkshire. The early scythe had a short wide straight blade rather than the long curved version familiar from medieval and later pictorial sources. The mass of this fragment suggests the good survival of metal, perhaps - if the suggested identification is accepted - arising from its high quality to begin with. Suggested date: Early Mediev…

Object type: HARNESS FITTING

A wrought iron swivel loop with part of its circumference flattened and broadened to form an oval expansion with a central, circular aperture of diameter 8mm. The inner part of the hole is bevelled, and it has a rim on its outer edge. The upper part of the loop is much thinner through wear where a strap or chain was attached during its working life. The object would function as a swivel and use with harness, agricultural equipment, or as part of a hooked swivel for a cooking pot (see PUBLIC-C87BB1) seems likely given the context of the find spot. Suggested date medieval to post-medieva…

An almost complete post-Medieval iron foot patten (c. 1720-c. 1900). This patten has an oval ring, slightly squashed on one side and rectangular in cross-section. It has a raised platform at the heel end where there is a trapezoidal attachment plate and a raised platform at the toe in the shape of a circle with a long, tapering protrusion at the front edge. The trapezoidal heel plate has two iron rivet holes on the outer edge and the toe plate has one iron rivet still present in the centre. Goodall, I (1973:63) comments that the single- and double-riveted raised terminals were charact…

Iron punch. A wrought iron rectangular section billet, tapered slightly towards a [now] rounded end and burred by recurrent impact on its flat head. Lightly bent. The fair survival of the metal core, as shown by its mass, may indicate a relatively recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1800.

  • Thumbnail image of LANCUM-B87E37

Record ID: LANCUM-B87E37
Object type: CANNON BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An iron post-medieval cannon ball, probably dating to the 17th century. It is cylindrical. It measures 95mm in diameter. The size suggests that it was intended to be fired from a demi-culverin, a medium cannon in use during the late 16th and 17th century. Other options might be that it is a ball from a ball mill for crushing minerals or a foreign cannon ball of unidentified type. Blackmore, H. L. 1976. The Armouries of the Tower of London. Vol. 1, Ordnance, 216. London: HMSO. The diameter is 90mm.

Object type: CANNON BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A post-medieval iron cannon ball, dating to the period AD 1600-1800. It is made of iron, which has been presumably cast, although no seams are visible. The ball is dark brown with lighter flecks across a relatively smooth surface, with only light pitting. The diameter is 57mm. This ball is likely from a Minion cannon in use from the mid-16th century through to the end of the 17th, possibly dating to the English Civil War. Minion cannons were typically of a 3 or 3.25 'bore' (diameter of the barrel aperture) firing balls of 2.7/8inches or 3 inch in diameter respectively. This example at …

Object type: SHOT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: County Durham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete cast iron shot or cannon ball dating to the post-medieval period (AD1500-1700). Given its weight (131.8g) and size ( Dia. 34.8mm) this is probably a canister shot, being slightly smaller than grape shot. It could also possibly be intended for use in a Serpentine which had a bore of 1.5 inches (38mm). It probably dates to the 16th or 17th century. The object is sub-spherical, and whilst there are no obvious signs of impact damage indicating use is heavily corroded and such evidence may have been lost. Other, broadly similar examples of this type of artefact have been reco…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron probable drawknife fragment. A wrought iron fragment from a heavy scale tanged tool, very similar to NLM-50FDF2, found nearby, and to which it may join, except in that it lacks the V-section blade noted on that object. A round- ended and slightly expanded tang gives way at a constriction to a bar-like 'blade', though this lacks the V-section of a knife. The forms are very similar and the condition of each is identical. A double-handled form would suggest a tool such as a drawknife or spokeshave. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1800. Length: 113mm, Width: 26.7mm, Thickness: 6.…
