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.

Roman cast copper-alloy Colchester derivative Dolphin type brooch with hinged pin dating to c. AD 55-100.

Incomplete cast copper alloy Roman brooch of initial T-shaped type. The head has two short, tubular wings with a central slot in which the pin head hinges.

The head of the pin is a copper alloy plate, with a piercing to allow the wire within the wings to pass through, securing it in place and allowing it to hinge. This plate …

Twenty sherds of Roman Poole-Wareham Black Burnished ware (BB1), 100-410 AD, sixteen body sherds and four rim sherds. The sherds mostly have dark inner and outer surfaces and a slightly lighter inner core; some have re-oxdised to shades from mid-orange to mid-grey from later burning others appear lighter as the darker surface has been lost. A few, mostly the rims, still have traces of burnishing but most are highly abraded with the original surface worn away. The fabric is fairly coarse, with the distinctive cods-roe fracture. It is tempered with abundant rounded quartz (less than …

Seven cast lead vessel repairs (pot mends). All have the characteristic H-shaped section with two irregularly shaped outer sides, one larger than the other, joined by a smaller central section. None of them retain any of the original pot in the grrove created between the outer sides. Total weight 70.04 grams. Pot mends of this form are found in both Roman and Medieval periods, as a common way to repair broken pottery vessels. The lack of any vessel material left in the groove means they cannot be dated directly but they are likely to be Roman given the other material on the site.
