Cast lead piece, probably a plain weight.. It is conical with a circular base, tapering sides and an irregular, broken top. There are numerous cuts and indents in the side. It is 49.8mm tall, 23.3mm in diameter at the base; it weighs 96 grams. Plain lead weights were made locally for a wide range of uses. They are therefore hard to date accurately and can be Roman - Post Medieval in date although most are from the latter part of this range.

Rim fragment from a copper alloy vessel, probably of a type used for cooking. The fragment is 39.7mm long, 43.7mm wide, 3.6mm thick in the body and weighs 34.3 grams. The rim flares outwards at an angle of 120 degrees to the body and has an uneven edge. The rim is 10.4mm wide at the widest 4.2mm thick. The curve of the rim suggests the original vessel had a diameter of 24cm. There are traces of sooting on the outside, suggesting a cauldron or other cooking vessel.

A cast copper alloy pot leg and foot fragment. 45.1mm long, 30.7mm wide, 21.4mm thick and weighs 101 grams. The fragment is heavily worn but appears to be angled at about 60 degrees. The back is plain. The front has two vertical grooves creating a slightly tri-bobed appearence; just below the top is a raised horizontal band with a semi-circular profile. The top is smooth with slight grooves rather than broken and has a central raised, rough section that may have held a rivet. There appears to be traces of sooting on the foot, this, and its size, suggests it may come from a cooking vessel.

Post Medieval copper alloy token farthing minted for William Smith of Steyning, Sussex in 1667. Williamson Vol 3. p.1182, Sussex No.165. William Smith was a mercer. There is a reference, in Sussex Archaeological Collections 19 p.95, to a William Smith of Steyning who had an estate worth £20 seized by parliment in 1655 because the owner was either a Royalist or a Catholic (the ordnance covered both). This may or may not be the same person as issued the tokens but Williamson suggests it is.

Half of a cast copper alloy token or coin. The item is a disk with a prominent raised design of a bust on one side. The break is old and patinated. The remaining half appears to have a blank reverse and there is no inscription on the obverse. While the style of the bust, from what can be seen, appears classical without the upper half of the head it is hard to be sure and classical style busts were also popular in the 17th to 19th centurys. It does not apppear to be a coin and may have been a token of some type. Lead tokens with imperial busts of probable Roman date are also known e.g. …

Medieval cast lead-alloy circular uni-faced token. The token has a raised design of square topped shield with a chequey pattern on one side. The reverse of the token has an raised five petalled flower. Above the shield is a piercing through the token, possibly secondary. It is 22.1mm in diameter, 3.1mm thick and weighs 6.14 grams. A number of familys bore a chequey coat of arms including the locally prominent de Warrene family (in use 1066-1415). Lead tokens had a wide variety of uses and were made locally, they are therefore hard to date precisely. The piercing and use of a coat of a…

Post Medieval cast lead-alloy uni-face circular token, 1500-1850 AD. The token has the raised initials TP on one side. The reverse appears to have a raised pellet towards one edge but this could possibly be a casting flaw. The token measures 18.2 mm in diameter, 1.9 mm thick, and weighs 3.84 grams. Lead tokens were locally made and had a wide variety of uses; they are therefore hard to date precisely but those with initials are thought to be Post Medieval in date.

Cast copper alloy stud attached to a broadly rectangular copper alloy sheet rove. The stud has a flattened sub-circular head and a blunted, twisted shaft of square cross-section. The rove is closely fitted to the head of the stud and the centre is convex. The metal is dark red-brown in colour with patches of off-white and light-green corrosion product. The date is uncertain although it is probably Roman or Post Medieval in date; this is supported by finds made in the vicinity. The rove is 13.5mm long, 11.0mm wide and 1.1mm thick excluding the stud shaft, 11.7mm including. It weighs 2…

A corroded cast copper-alloy Roman strap mount often described as 'vulvate' as the central motif is thought to imitate a vulva. The mount is sub-rectangular in form with a central raised oval boss (14.6 by 10.1mm). The short ends are squared off while the longer ones curve outwards slightly. The boss features a central longitudinal incision along most of its length. The lower surface is slightly concave towards its centre, either side of which two integral, fungiform studs would have protruded; one is now broken and vestigial. A direct parallel can be found illustrated in Bishop (199…

Copper alloy composite Medieval strap end. The strap end consists of two outer plates separated by a forked inner plate. There is a copper alloy circular rivet at the strap attachment end and a further circular rivet just above the protruding acorn-shaped terminal. The acorn end is very simple with the protruding knop and a small sub-rectangular collar. No further decoration is visible. There is a mid whitish-grey corrosion product in-between the two sheets of copper alloy which make up the strap end. In London strap ends of this form were found in contexts dating from 1270-1450 (…

Cast copper alloy strap end made of a single strip folded in half widthways at the end. In shape it is a simple rectangular with rounded corners, some of the rounding may be from wear. There is a single rivet which appears to be cast integrally with the front and then roughly hammered flat after going through the strap and a hole in the back plate. The strap end is highly corroded obscuring any decoration but there are traces of gilding. While strap ends made of a piece folded widthways are known from the Medieval period the use of an integral, crude rivet is unusual. It is…

The broken bowl from a cast copper-alloy 17th-century post-medieval spoon. The handle and the majority of the bowl are missing, both from old breaks. The handle is rectangular in cross-section; on the lower surface it tapers to a point at its junction with the bowl. The surviving section of the bowl is shallow and has been bent upwards at the extant terminal, with breaks to each side. There is evidence on the bowl for a circular makers mark, central on the upper surface, which is now unclear but possibly a (Tudor) rose (as with SOM-7C2A26 on this database). The lower surface is plain.…
