Record ID: YORYM-D6E0A2
Object type: TRIAL PIECE
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A lead pad or trial piece from a die stamp of early Anglo-Saxon (7th century) date. The object is flat and sub-rectangular with rounded corners, and has a worn break to one end. A shallow impression has been made on one side, almost certainly by a die stamp for making impressed foil mounts. The decoration is in Salin's Style II, framed within a tapering sub-rectangular border and with rounded lobes at the surviving end. Each lobe is filled with the curl of the beak of a predatory bird with pointed-oval eyes and no headframe. Interlace is present between the beaks. Beneath the birds' h…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete cast lead spherical vessel with a protruding cylindrical spout, about 8 mm in diameter, that might have also been used as a handle. This might be a miniature lead vessel, representing a larger copper alloy cauldron or round-bottomed vessel, and was probably used as a toy. A variety of miniature lead-alloy kitchen items are known from the 16th to the 18th century (Egan, 1988, 2). The upper edge of the vessel is torn and uneven, so it is difficult to say whether there was another handle or whether this might be a jug with a spout. It may just be the product of melting lead on…

County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Later Early-Medieval copper alloy rectangular mount with a rivet hole in each corner. It is ever so slightly dished to the reverse, while the front carries an apparently devolved interlace design in the form of a sinuous beast with beaked head and oval eye within edges flanking the shape of the mount. The mount appears to be cast, the decoration appearing in relief, the reverse being flat (although now rather worn and missing much of its original patina). There is a small nick in one of the short edges and the remains of iron rivets in three of the four rivet holes. Traces of prob…

A late Early Medival/early Medieval copper alloy unidentified artefact. The artefact is composed of three integral elements which are in a row. Firstly there is a triangular element which has a central circular perforation which has bevelled edges on both faces. The terminal is vertical, flat, and is shaped in the form of two vertical drops joined at the tips. The tips correspond to the perforation on this element. This triangular element has an integral sub-lozenge protruding from the tip which has an oval central perforation, again with bevelled edges on both faces. This element is …

An incomplete cast copper-alloy object, probably the shaft from a pin, a spoon handle, cosmetic implement or similar object of Roman date. It is formed from a flat sheet of copper-alloy that has been rolled to create a tube that tapers towards one end. A seam is visible along one side, which has been reworked in order to hide or disguise the seam. The object terminates at both ends in old breaks making identification of its original form or function impossible. It has a dark green patina with some pitting in places and measures 50.33mm in length, 3.56mm in diameter, and 1.69g in weigh…

A complete knapped lithic implement of Neolithic date. The implement is a petit tranchet arrowhead which is sub-triangular in plan and rectangular in section with one edge shallower than the other. Both surfaces are smooth and extensive retouch is present along the left and right edges. The cutting edge has been formed by the removal of a single tranchet flake. A small notch is present at the butt of the implement which shows signs of retouch suggesting it may have been reused as a spoke shave or similar. The flint is a mid brownish-grey colour with lighter and black inclusions. The …

A fragment of an early medieval Carolingian copper alloy gilded mount of composite construction and of uncertain original extent. The main fragment has no certain original edges; at its centre is a lozenge shape with incurving sides and at the centre of this is a large domed rivet. Within the lozenge shape is a saltire of strip form each arm of which is decorated with a single line of round pits. Within each angle of the saltire is a petal-like form with a void dividing each petal lengthwise. Beyond the incurving sides of the lozenge is a surviving pair of expanded rounded triangular …

A flint tertiary waste flake of probable Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date. The flake is incomplete, the remaining portion having parallel long sides which then converge to a point. This point may be the result of a breakage rather than being an original feature; the other end of the flake also shows evidence of having been broken in antiquity. The dorsal surface exhibits two parallel arrises. The ventral surface has rippling but the striking point has been lost. The flint is a heavily patinated greyish-white with one patch of brownish-grey. Dimensions: 41.2mm long, 22.1mm w…

A flint tertiary flake, probably dating from the Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age. The piece is sub-rectangular in plan and of triangular section, with a vertical arrise at the centre of the dorsal surface. A small portion of the core platform remains, adjacent to which, on the ventral surface, there is a bulb scar. The edges of the flake are irregular, probably as a result of natural wear, and there is no evidence that this piece was ever used as a tool. The flint is patinated, light to mid blueish-grey. Dimensions: 24.9mm long, 15.6mm wide, 5.3mm thick. Weight: 2.32g.

Probably an early Bronze Age anvil stone dating to between c2100 and c1500 BC.. It reminiscent of the Early Bronze Age anvil stones from a smiths grave at Lunteren in the Netherlands; see http://1501bc.com/page/rijks_museum_oudheden/0214038.JPG. It is incredibly heavy for its size (too heavy for the finds scales) and shows evidence of continual impacts that appear deliberately placed. It is as likely that the anvil was used in the production of gold items, as well as copper alloy objects. The iron staining on the face of the stone is probably due to a close encounter with a plough at …

An incomplete cast copper-alloy (with high lead content) or lead-alloy pin of probable mid to late Early Medieval date (Anglo-Saxon). Only the pinhead and a short length of the shaft survive. The head is globular in form being an elongated oval in section with no notable surface design, although there is considerable pitting and corrosion. At the base of the globular head is a collar, a feature which is taken as a key indication of an early Medieval date. Below the collar is a short length of the shaft, due to corrosion it is not possible to discern the shape in section. There ap…

Cast lead alloy toy figure of a rider on horseback, missing his head, and the head and legs of the horse. The figure has been decorated on both sides, with different details of the rider and horse on each side.

He holds the reins in his left hand and reaches out with his right, likely with a sword in his hand, but this is missing. The rider is sitting on a sad…

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…

Broad period: ROMAN
County: Worcestershire

A cast copper alloy and iron Roman folding knife; the cast copper-alloy handle depicts a nude standing figure, possibly female. The handle is sub-rectangular and openwork. An iron blade has corroded in its folded position within a slot in the handle. The blade is hinged on an iron rivet at the base of the handle which is a pedestal. Corrosion product has spread from the rivet across much of the pedestal. The remnant of the blade, as well as the length of the slot, implies that the blade would have been a minimum of c. 63mm long. The handle has a mid-grey/green incomplete patina with s…
