An incomplete, possibly cut, cast copper alloy object of uncertain use and date, but potentially either later Early-medieval or a post-medieval revival piece. The object is flat but is curved like a horn with a squared terminal 16.7mm wide, while the thinner end is 7.4mm wide. This end is broken. There is a sprue of metal bent up and curved from one edge, which does not appear to have any decorative features and seems to be another element of the object. Both faces of the 'horn' are intricately decorated with scolled leaves and vines with a beast at the wider terminal; each beast is …

A fragment of brown glass weighing 1.22g with a curved length of c.20.0mm. The fragment has a D shaped cross-section and 'nicely' shaped (as described by Dr Kevin Leahy) irregular transverse fractures at each end. The inner surface of the curved length is flatter and the sides and outer curve have a more pronounced convex surface. The width and thickness varies, having a width of 4.7mm and thickness of 2.7mm at one end. The fragment then increases to a maximum width of 6.3mm and thickness of 3.8mm before reducing to a width of 5.2mm and thickness of 3.0mm at the other break. Use of a …

County: Cambridgeshire

A fragment of stone, which has divided specialist opinion. It is not possible to confirm that this piece of stone is definitely an artefact and at least one specialist considers it to be a water smoothed pebble of igneous stone, possible glacial erratic pebble from boulder clay deposits, that has a plough struck spall removed from one side. Other specialists feel that this could possibly have been an axehead, probably dating to 2000-1500BC. Alternatively speculation as to whether it is a Palaeolithic handaxe has been muted. Both suggestions agree that it is not possible to determine t…

A copper alloy-stud of uncertain date, cast, with a slightly convex circular head which is 21.48mm in diameter and 3.04mm thick. The plate has suffered some abrasions to its circumference. Located centrally on the reverse of the head is an integral shank of circular cross-section, which tapers slightly to a flat end; it has a maximum diameter of 7.35mm and is 17.83mm long. There is little diagnostic information with which to date this stud. Overall, the stud is 17.83mm long, and weighs 9.6g

Copper alloy Unidentified Object. Cast fragment with a flat back. The reddish tint below an abraded surface patina is a feature of many objects of Anglo-Scandinavian date. Dr Kevin Leahy kindly comments that, rather than being a distressed artefact fragment, this may be a fragment of casting spillage.Suggested date: Unknown, 40-1800. Length: 18.8mm, Width: 13.4mm, Thickness: 2.2mm, Weight: 1.58gms.

An incomplete and undatable copper alloy unidentified object, consisting of a rectangular plate (14.27x17.22mm) from one edge of which extends an arched arm, expanding into something flatter at its other end, although only a tiny fragment of this survives. At this point to the reverse however is a curving hook, in the same plane as the arm, but curving first backwards then forwards again. The tip is worn and it is uncertain if it is a break or not. Behind the plate, just before the arm extends, is a rectangular projection extending at right angles and broken at its end, possibly acros…

An apparently complete copper alloy unidentified object, probably Early-Medieval to Medieval in date (c.400-1500) and with no obvious breaks. Measures 30.08x14.03x2.91mm and weighs 3.93g. The object is flat and curving in profile, with one crimped end, tapering and thickening to become D-shaped in cross-section (5.23x2.91mm) though apparently not crimped to hold anything - there is a very slight opening only. The object is otherwise rectangular in cross-section with the opposite end measuring 14.03x1.42mm. The sides narrow to c.13mm, whereby they thicken (2.76mm) and taper sharply i…

Iron spearhead with an elongated leaf shaped blade which appears to narrow then widen again to broad projecting points (ricasso) above the socket. The blade is pointed oval in section with a slightly thickened centre but no midrib. It is 35.5mm wide at the widest point and 26.6mm at the narrowest section above the projecting points. This narrow section is damaged but does appear to be an original feature although the alternative, that it originally continued straight before curving out to the projecting points, cannot be ruled out. It is 30.8mm across at the points and 3.5mm thick. Th…

A complete iron axehead of uncertain date. The axehead is of the bearded type being sub-rectangular in plan with an expanded blade with a pronounced downward projection. Much of the original cutting edge has been lost to degradation though it appears to have had a gentle curve. The socket of the axe is deltoid in plan with two sub-triangular projections from the bottom edge which would have stabilised the axe on the wooden shaft. The metal is a mid orangey-brown colour and is heavily corroded. The axehead is 158mm long, 126.5mm wide at the blade, 71.3mm wide at the socket, 3.2mm thi…

A copper-alloy finger ring with gilded and incised decoration. The ring is of 'D-shaped' section, the width and thickness gradually increasing from the back of the hoop to the bezel. At the centre of the bezel is an oval setting containing an unidentified black substance with areas of white 'crust'. Both shoulders are decorated with an incised triquetra motif: three interlinked pointed ovals. On one side of the ring, the central pointed oval is particularly well executed, extending to beyond halfway along the hoop, its inner space incised to resemble a feather. The remaining portion…

A fragment of a wheel thrown ceramic vessel of uncertain date. The fragment is from a shallow cup or bowl with an orange fabric of a fine, hard texture and an orange-red slip which is still glossy in places. The fragment is decorated with a medial strip flanked by narrow borders. Within the strip are four curved arches each with three vertical lines within. This decoration is unusual as it has been scratched into the slip, removing it down to the level of the original fabric, rather than moulded or stamped. The piece is believed by the recorder and Finds Advisor Kevin Leahy to be Ro…

A cast copper alloy ingot of unknown date. The ingot is sub-rectangular in plan and cross section; it tapers from a relatively thick narrow end to a thinner thicker one. The upper surface has a series of incised slightly diagonal lines applied to it. These lines are heavily patinated and form almost a deliberately delineated measure; however, the lines have been applied at random and are irregular in nature. The sides of the ingot are regular and it is possible that they have been hammered to that shape. The metal surface has a deep thick brown coloured patina which is much abraded and…

Four cast copper alloy ingots of unknown date. The ingots are all similar in form being broadly sub-rectangular in plan and faceted; each ingot has a different number of sides but all seem to be deliberately hammered or cast. The long sides of each ingot taper and expand forming a number of pre-defined smaller ingots; in shape they are similar to a string of beads or string of sausages. The space between each ingot seems to have a square shaped cross section, suggesting that each miniature ingot was of a predesigned functional size. Each ingot is a mid brown green colour with an even, …

A large piece of possible exotic worked stone, of uncertain date and function. It feels to be lighter than if it was made of metal, and heavier than if it was ceramic. It is dark grey / black and very fine grained with rounded (vitrified?) inclusions which have a lustrous silver shine. The matrix is hard and irregular, but can be crushed with a thumbnail. The piece is curved in one plane only. The outer face of the curve is pitted and has a groove across it. The inner face is much smoother though it still has rounded bobbles visible. The broken edges appear black in colour, but have s…

A cast lead unidentified object of Unknown date. Length: 34.0mm; 27.8mm and 8.8mm thick. Weight: 25.81g. The object is sub-trapezoidal in plan and the longer sides flare outwards and are also slightly concave. The narrower end, which has a width of 11.8mm, has a slightly convex top and appears to have been hammered. The opposite end has an evenly curving profile. On one face, at the centre, there is a triangular depression. The opposite face also has a depression close to the narrow end. It is unclear whether these depressions are accidental features or whether they have been create…
