Knapped flint flake or debitage, possibly retouched, of probable Mesolithic to Bronze Age date. The flint is a dark to mid grey. It is triangular in plan and section. Around 20% of the surface has the cortex remaining running down one edge. Two possible blades or flakes have been removed from the dorsal face and there is a small bulb of percussion on the ventral face. Crude removals at the proximal end may have removed the remainder of the bulb. There are chips along both sides of the edge which is not covered by cortex andpossible retouching along at the point of the proximal end. I…

A copper-alloy late medieval or post medieval fragment of vessel repair or handle attachment. The piece is roughly rectangular in shape, though with one edge expanding in a curve, and consists of two metal sheets riveted together.

The rivets have been pushed through from one side and is flattened and smoothed on the other, flush with the sheet. They were pro…

County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper-alloy four-way strap junction of post-medieval date. The piece is formed of four circular loops arranged around a central sqaure; one of the loops has broken through. The loops curve into the square's field. The central element is recessed apart from a central pellet, perhaps to take in inlay that has now been lost. While the upper surface is moulded the lower surface is flat. The piece has a red/brown colour with patches of light-green and off-white corrosion product. This, the form and finish, suggest a date for this piece perhaps in the 17th or 18th ce…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete post-medieval cast copper-alloy double-looped buckle frame. Around a half of one of the buckle's loops has been broken away following old damage, with the outer edge gone completely and the sides surviving to differing extents above and below. The pin is also missing. The remaining oval loop is curved in cross-section due to a central recess between the sides of the buckle on the back. This is presumably a result of casting in an open, one-piece mould, whereby the metal has cooled and contracted. At the centre of the outer edge of the complete loop is an angled lobed kn…

Possibly a cast copper alloy awl or tracer. About half the length is square-section (maximum 6mm across) and fairly even in width, the other half is rounded and narows gradually and terminates to a point. there is no obvious waist where the two sections join. 82mm long and weighs 9.4 grams. Plain copper alloy awls are hard to date precisely and this lacks the characteristic central thickening of some Bronze Age examples. Plainer examples are known however and as an artefact they were introduced in the Bronze Age (2150-800 BC) with most being Late Bronze Age in date (1150-800 BC).…

Probably a Late Medieval Venetian silver soldino probably of Doge Agostin Barbarigo (1486-1501). Late type (LAVS TIBI SOLI reverse type). The soldino was known as the galyhalpens (galley-halfpence) as it was brought by the annual Venetian trading fleets. The soldino was about the size of English halfpennies and was popular because of a contemporary lack of small change: soldini in fact occur as English finds more often than proper halfpennies of the period.
