Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Post Medieval cast pewter shoe or knee buckle dating from AD1660 - AD1720.

The buckle has a moulded decoration on the front. This is formed of four rounded knops at the four 'corners'. The two upper and the two lowers knops are linked to each other by a raised line following the curve of the loops. In the centre of these lines, where the spindle would have attached, is a pointed knop. The …

Object type: BROOCH
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a cast copper alloy brooch dating to the Roman period. The brooch is a Hod Hill type dating between 43 and 70 AD. The brooch consists of the hinge and part of the bow. The pin is missing but there are traces of iron corrosion in the hollow tube that would have held it. The bow is slightly arched and tapers towards the base. There is a transverse break across the bow before the foot meaning that the catchplate is also missing. The bow is undecorated. The brooch measures 31mm in length. A similar example can be seen on the database at SUR-FE6060.

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete cast lead weight or possible spindle whorl of uncertain date. The weight is hemispherical with a flat base, circular in plan and convex top. It has a sub circular hole drilled through the centre. It is undecorated and covered with pitting and scratch marks. The weight has a cream-grey patination. It weighs 21.39g. Lead weights, along with spindle whorls were commonly used from the Iron Age through to the Post Medieval period and are difficult to date with any certainty. Undecorated examples cannot be securely dated without supporting contextual evidence.
