Flint possible edge-polished fragment. A chunk of lentoid section with an apparently curving cutting edge with polishing immediately adjacent to it, but otherwise bearing the scars of covering scalar working entailing hard hammer removal of a small number of large flakes. Though the putative cutting edge is crisp, the object is broken c.40mm behind it. All surfaces, including the putative fracture surface, are identically covered by a dense creamy patina and are iron stained, features suggesting a prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment followed by incorporation in gravels.

Complete early medieval decorated lead-alloy sword pommel of the 'cocked hat' type (c. 500 - 700 AD). The pommel has a shallow depression to the base which is partly filled with organic detriment due to the context of its deposition. The pommel is broadly triangular in shape with a rounded tip and two square faces at either end. The front, back and top faces are decorated with a pattern of a pair of twisting bands in relief. The pommel is in bad repair; one side has been bent out of place and a lower section of the pommel has been shorn off. A dark grey shiny patch at the top of the p…

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…

Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint tranchet axehead from the early Mesolithic period (c.9000 - 8000 BC). The flint is a dark brownish-grey and fairly opaque with elements of the cortex visible. The axe is crudely worked, with a rounded cutting edge, roughly parallel sides and a pointed butt. It has a broadly triangular cross-section. The flint appears to be in the second stage of being worked due to the patches of cortex on its butt and and its ventral and dorsal faces. Also, a soft hammering technique seems to have been used, identifiable by the weak ripple marks and low bulbs of percussion. The broad shape of…

An incomplete copper-alloy Early Medieval strap slide, dating to the period c.AD 850-1000. The strap slide is oval in plan, with wear to the edges where pieces are missing. A central raised ridge runs from the apex to lower edge. This is flanked by ring and dot decoration arranged in an irregular pattern. A incised groove can just be discerned circumnavigating the perimeter. The reverse has a broken projection at the lower and upper apex, and these two projections would have joined to form an integral loop. The reverse is undecorated.

Similar line and pellet decoration is commonly found on medieval spindle whorls. A similar example which has been recorded o…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An almost complete copper alloy brooch of Early Medieval date, late 8th-9th century. The brooch is circular in plan and flat with zoomorphic and openwork decoration. The brooch is decorated with a central 'kite-shaped' cross, the terminals of which are rounded, expanding out over the edge of the circumference of the plate. Each rounded terminal contains a circular groove within which is an undecorated area containing a circular rivet hole. Three of the outer incomplete rivets remain in the holes along with a central rivet while one is missing. It is likely that these rivets when co…

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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 …
