Record ID: SOM-ACC964
Object type: RING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy ring with hexagonal cross section and slightly uneven thickness and width of unknown date. The object is undecorated but has long striations around its outer face, probably from filing or wear, and with two areas of wear where the ring is thinner. Diameter: 27.4mm, width: 4.0mm, Thickness of loop from: 4.6mm, to: 3.3mm, Weight: 7.13g. Such rings are largely undatable and can be as early as Iron Age, but it is most likely a Medieval to Post-Medieval horse harness ring, possibly to link two straps given how it is worn in two places.

Object type: STUD
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper alloy decorated stud, possibly Roman. The head of the stud is broadly circular, with a mostly flat top. In the centre of the top is a slightly raised circle upon which is an incised circular line border 10.31mm in diameter. Within the border is an inscribed eagle, with outspread wings, the tips of which meet the circular line border but do not ingress upon it. The back of the head is slightly convex towards the integral shaft which is complete. The shaft itself is rectangular in section, thinning along its length to a flattened and slightly expanded rounded point. …

Object type: COSMETIC SPOON
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An unidentified copper-alloy artefact. The widest part of the artefact is located a short distance below centre, where there is a cylindrical moulding with a simple grooved and ridged moulding at either end. A rectangular-sectioned bar projects upwards from above this moulding, tapering towards the apex, where it terminates in what appears to be the remains of a loop. Projecting below the cylindrical moulding is a flat-sectioned piece which decreases in thickness as it flares towards the distal end, where longitudinal grooves divide the surface into three segments, the central one …

Record ID: HAMP-4DC041
Object type: BUTTON
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A solid cast copper-alloy button with a thick tin coating, uncertain in date, either medieval or modern. It is circular in plan and domed front and back with a definite carination between the sides. There is a scar at the centre of one face, with two depressions, for a seperate narrow copper-alloy wire loop. The button is similar to an example illustrated in Egan and Prichard (1991, 274; fig 178, no.1388) which is from a context dated c. AD 1270-1350. Use of large numbers of such buttons was fashionable in the mid 14th century, however similar small buttons were also popular in the…

Record ID: HAMP-3161D5
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An artefact of uncertain function consisting of a lead core capped with a sheet copper-alloy dome at one end. The main leaden element is corroded and abraded, but broadly cylindrical and is able to sit on its flat, sub-circular base. The other end is shallowly domed and covered with copper-alloy sheeting, abraded at its circumference. At its summit it appears to be perforated, although this is unclear, as is its purpose. The object may have acted as a weighted terminal to something rather than a weight in its own right. The copper alloy cap has a variable mid-green colour.

Record ID: HAMP-311393
Object type: STUD
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragmentary stud with copper-alloy globular head and beginnings of an iron shank, possibly Roman in date. The head is broadly spherical. The iron shank seems to be circular in cross-section; the exact way these two elements are joined is obscured by corrosion. From the weight the head appears solid and is 12.5mm in diameter with a flattened top. Below, the corroded remains of an iron shank, c. 2.7mm diameter, are vestigial and corroded. Similar large spherical headed studs or nails are recorded in Crummy (1983, 115; fig. 116) from Roman contexts, although those had copper alloy sh…

Object type: TILE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two fragments of ceramic building material, both roughly quadrilateral in form. They both have oxidised surfaces, one light orange, the other mid orange. They both feature yellowy inclusions and seams from where the clay has not been mixed fully. Respectively, they measure 55.9 by 48.7 by 12.0mm and 74.55 by 36.6 by 12.4mm; a combined weight is given below. They are plausibly medieval in date given their thickness, although a Roman date ought not to be ruled out.

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two circular cast lead alloy disc weights of uncertain date. Both weights have an incised cross with smaller diagonal lines projecting the same direction from each arm on one face, possibly representing windmill sails and an incised 'V' on the other. 1) 30.6mm in diameter, 3.9mm in thickness and 18.27g, 2) 28.6mm in diameter, 2.9mm in thickness and 13.44g. Weights sych as these were cast locally in lead from the Roman period onwards for a wide variety of uses and are hard to date precisely although most are late Medieval - Post Medieval
