Iron metalworking debris. A large oval-ended furnace bottom or bloom [the finder's identification] with a flat top and near-vertical if irregular sides, formed either in the base of an iron ore burning furnace or in a channel cut to receive molten metal from such furnace. The object was retrieved from a reported depth of c.0.9m, and involved the cooperative labours of two people working at arms' length to extract it from the hole. Dr Kevin Leahy kindly comments that the object has the superficial appearance of cast iron, and that this would carry with it an implication of a date af…

Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Denbighshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An iron whittle tanged knife of Roman to Medieval date. The blade measures 93.02mm in length and the tang 13.17mm in length. The tang is incomplete. Each edge is slightly curved with the cutting edge measuring 1.28mm thick and the opposite edge measuring 2.07mm. The knife terminates with a rounded point. The surfaces of the object are uneven due to corrosion. It is mid-brown in colour. The form is of Manning's Roman Type 16, which he says is a long-live type. The form would also be quite acceptable in the Early Medieval period (Drinkall type A) and there are good parallels in Cowgi…

A Roman iron knife blade and a cast copper alloy scabbard fitting, found together. The knife measures 125mm in length, 16.5mm in width and 6mm in thickness and it weighs 33.24g. The scabbard fitting, which came from the top of the sheath measures 35mm x 11.5mm x 8mm and the metal is c. 1.2mm thick. It weighs 10.07g. This type of knife is long-lived, but the scabbard mount probably dates from the earlier Roman period, that is the 1st or 2nd century AD. The knife was tanged with a probably symmetrical, leaf-shaped blade and a tang that the wooden handle was mounted on. Remains of the…

Object type: SPEAR

County: Wakefield

An iron spear of Modern date, possibly a replica or ethnographic piece. It has an angular blade which is a lozenge in section. The neck is sub-square in section and the socket is a rounded square near the neck, gradually changing to oval in section at the end. The socket appears to be of solid construction. An unusual feature, and the one that indicates a Modern date, is a bolt across the socket of which only the hexagonal head and nut can be seen projecting from the sides of the socket. The socket is full of earth and corrosion. When recovered from the gorund, the spear had layers…

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

Iron Possible Hinge strap fragment. Wrought iron strip of rectangular section with a flattened oval end; the object is broken at its other end next to a circular hole of estimated diameter 7mm. This identification was kindly offered by Dr Kevin Leahy. Given there is only a single hole for a nail to attach the putative strap to a door or shutter, and given that the hole is far from its finished end, an alternative interpretation as a tine detached from a tool such as a hay rake or eel spear might also be entertained. The finder's suggestion that this could be a weapon fragment is not…

County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A corroded iron trident-shaped artefact of possible Roman date. The object has lost one of its side prongs. The central prong is enlarged (W.: 15.85mm) before tapering to a point. It has been bent in profile. The tang is solid and tapers in both length and thickness over c. 37mm. It has a rectangular cross-section. The artefact could have acted as a weapon as it seems somewhat over elaborate as an agricultural or fishing tool.
