A fragment of a Medieval to Post Medieval cast copper alloy cooking vessel rim fragment dating from AD1250 - AD1850. The fragment is decorated with a thickened band, measuring 5.16mm in width, around the edge just below the rim. The fragment is too small to determine the original diameter of the vessel. The fragment measures 61.12mm in length, 47.86mm in height, 5.86mm in thickness and weighs 62.11g. Butler, Green and Payne (2009: Finds Research Group AD700-1700 Datasheet 41) comment that rim fragments which are found as individual fragments are likely to be from cauldrons or posne…

A cast copper alloy repair from a vessel (pot mend), dating from the Roman to Medieval periods (43 - 1500 AD). One face of the pot med is sub rectangular with a smaller sub circular bar projecting from the centre. The mend measures 29mm in length. No fabric adheres to the mend to indicate what type of vessel it was used to repair. Pot mends of this form are found in both Roman and Medieval periods as a common way to repair broken pottery vessels. Without any remains of the pot it is impossible to date it more precisely.

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.

A fragment of a cast copper alloy, double loop buckle dating to the Post Medieval period (1570 - 1700 AD). The buckle is trapezoidal with a sub rectangular loop.

County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A sheet copper alloy rivet dating between the Medieval and Post Medieval periods (1475 - 1800 AD). The rivet is formed from a sheet of copper alloy rolled into a cone and with the top flattened to form a head. The rivet measures 10mm in length. The function for these objects is unclear, however it is thought that they may have been used for repairing metal vessels. A discussion of these rivets can be found in Egan 2005: 101. Egan suggests that rivets like this were a later form of rivet, which took over from the Medieval folded staples in the late 15th to the mid to late 16th cent…
