Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Probably a cast copper strap mount also called a 'pressure tectonic' dating from the late Iron Age or early Roman period, that is c. 100BC-AD200. The artefact is nearly complete and in very good condition. It is of roughly triangular shape with a flat top and three large spikes on the underside. One of the points of the triangle terminates in a break, but there is no further damage or breakages on the other side. Opposite the break, the other two points of the triangle terminate in two ornamental knops with carved or incised crosses on the circular tops. Below, the copper alloy is qui…

Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An Early-Medieval to Medieval copper-alloy mount. The mount is sub-oval in plan, narrowing towards one end. The underside is concave and the domed upper surface is decorated in high-relief moulding. This decoration takes the form of a pair of birds, aligned back-to-back on the longest axis of the mount, the heads at the wider end. Each bird has a slender, curved body, pointed-oval wing and exaggerated tail with squared end. The legs are heavily stylised, each pair separated by an inverted-V-shaped notch and terminating in an overly large, upturned foot. The birds are depicted as if…

Object type: MICROLITH
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Central Bedfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Mesolithic flint microlith. The piece is sub-triangular, with a horizontal break (possibly deliberate) at the wider end. A longitudinal ridge extends down the centre of the dorsal surface, creating a triangular profile. Blunting appears to be confined to the longer side, where it has occurred along the entire length. The point has been cut off, removing the bulb-of-percussion, the original position of which is indicated by the direction of the ripples on the ventral surface. The flint is patinated and bluish-grey. Length: 25.4mm; width: 12.8mm; thickness: 2.1mm; weight: 0.62g.

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy and iron early-medieval bridle fitting: a cheekpiece. Curving plate with a rectangular loop at the top and a possibly openwork arrangement of ten apertures, mostly sub-circular. Extensive ferrous corrosion suggests this was attached to an iron object. Degraded moulded decoration comprises possibly zoomorphic terminals at the ends of the plate, apparently with long tongues projecting from the gaping jaws of beasts; vertical groups of ribs, and a possibly devolved beast head or mask ornament below the loop. David Williams here kindly identifies a projecting animal head (a l…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Toffee coloured clouded and opaque flint. Knife. Narrow rod shaped blade. Four very long parallel flake removal scars on the dorsal aspect confer an angular plano-convex profile; very faint rippling on the ventral side shows where the flake was detached from a core. Some slight abrasions along the edge have been smoothed. Though the object has a glossy surface overall, possibly a result of curation in antiquity, the context could equally suggest this appealing finish to be the result of wave action. Kevin Leahy kindly comments as follows: 'An interesting object. Without retouch the…

Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a probable cast copper alloy horse harness boss of early medieval date. The decorative style appears to be Salin's Style II. The circular collared setting appears to be filled with a separate rivet which projects from the back; this can be paralleled on some of the disc brooches illustrated by George Speake (Kevin Leahy, pers.comm.). The complete object appears to have been circular with art of the circumference surviving. The central design may have been in the form of a cross. Late sixth/seventh century. It is not clear that the object is gilded.

County: Derbyshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy pin of Early Medieval dating (AD 720 to AD 850). The pin consists of a globular head with eleven (11) spiralling grooves around the surface. This is often referred to as 'Wrythen' style. A small circular depression is present at the top of the head. A small circular collar is present at the base of the head. The shaft is incomplete, with the tip missing. It has a circular cross section. A narrowing is present at one point on the shaft, but this is probably post mortem damage, which has resulted in a lateral bend in the shaft. The pin measures 49.0 mm i…

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete copper alloy buckle plate of 9th-century date. It is made from a single thin sheet of copper alloy, which tapers from a wider to a narrower end. Both ends are incomplete. At the wider end there are two sub-rectangular projections with a rectilinear slot in between; this may be the remains of two hinge loops to attach the plate to a frame. At the other end are two incomplete circular rivet holes. Between the rivet holes is an engraved sub-triangular shape, two sides concave and the other convex, which may be related to the 'fan-shaped' motifs found on 9th-century strap-en…

Object type: BALANCE
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy and Iron. Balance fragment. Central beam and one hinged arm from a tiny balance. The arm has a bulbous end, perhaps to permit tied attachment of a pan. A separate pin of diameter 1.5mm and length 3.8mm joins arm and beam. Ferrous corrosion at the centre of the beam suggests provision for the suspension of the set of scales. Dr Kevin Leahy kindly suggests this may be of Roman date, though no other material of that date was reported with it. Suggested date: Possibly Roman, 40-400. Length: 27.9mm, Width: 6.7mm, Thickness: 4.9mm, Weight: 2.12gms.

Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint pickaxe, probably dating from the Mesolithic period (c. 10,000 BC to c. 4,001 BC). This would appear to be a double-ended implement, with a pick at one end and an axe-like blade at the other. Most of the surface of the original nodule has been removed, but one side in particular retains a significant portion of its cortex. The narrowest point is at the pick end, where the surfaces have been deliberately sloped to point, which exhibits signs of wear. The sides gradually diverge from this point, the implement reaching a maximum width approximately one third of the way…

Copper alloy Pin. Cast slightly tapering pin of round section with a flat openwork head with engrailed edges and a balanced curvilinear composition, possibly abstracted from the popular motif of a hand grasping a fruit or pearl. On one side - the better preserved - a collar is provided at the base of the head by a horizontal series of tiny and closely spaced punched dots of diameter c.0.5mm; similar dots also form a border motif for the open parts of the head, probably on both sides. The shank is bent through 90 degrees at its mid point, a feature of hair pins sometimes thought to rel…
