The eyes are marked by incised dots, the forehead and nose are separated by a steep step and, behind the eye of each animal, are two converging lines. The possible wings also bear converging lines and the animals' bodies m…

A complete knife scabbard chape, probably from an eating set, of Late Medieval to Early Post Medieval dating (AD 1400 - AD 1600). The finial involves a pointed knob at the end, which leads to a circular protrusion with ring and dot knops at the cardinal points. Followed by a a twisted column before another circular protrusion, again with ring and dot knops at the cardinal points, which then leads into two joined triangular chapes, the top one of which is smaller than the bottom. The smaller chape may have housed a pricker, the larger chape would have housed the knife end. Object …

Object type: HOARD
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A total of 91 items were recorded of which 86 are early Medieval and, with three possible exceptions, probably relate to the hoard. The finds recorded consist of 38.85g of gold and 100.90g of silver, including the 79.13g cheek piece, 5004 . It must be recognised that these figures include both earth and garnets and will be reduced by cleaning and that the descriptions of the metal alloys are based only on visual examination, not analysis. The finds include a block of earth which appears to contain gold, 5091. The preliminary x radiographs suggest that this contains a single, folded, s…

Record ID: WMID3512
Object type: PIN
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Pin of possible Roman date, The head is globular with flattened upper and lower faces, it is seated centrally on the shank which has three grooves as decoration below the head. The shank then tapers, undecorated to a blunt point and is slightly bent at the mid-point at c. 170°. The pin has a brown/green patina. Dr Kevin Leahy writes: While mouldings beneath the heads is a feature of Middle Anglo-Saxon pins the multiple mouldings/grooves on this example are more a feature of Roman pins as is its tapering shank. On balance it is best assigned to the Roman period.
