Record ID: CORN-98653E
Object type: JETTON
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy Anglo-Gallic jetton with geometrical tracery on the obverse similar to that on the window of the vestry at Merton College, Oxford, which dates from c.1310. The pictorial obverse is contemporary with sterling bust jettons dating from c.1280-1343 like Mitchiner p.116, no.243, but the closest reference is the Anglo-Gallic jetton recorded in Barnard (1981) on page 101, pl.II, fig.35, no.35, which is not dated and where the obverse is not illustrated but appears similar from the description.

Object type: AMPULLA
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead pilgrim ampulla or holy water flask with the neck folded over to close the vessel. The ampulla is bag shaped with no evidence for loops at the side of the neck, used to suspend the flask from a cord around the pilgrim's neck. The ampulla is decorated on the front with raised radiating lines that form a scallop shell pattern, typical of ampullae. The scallop shell was originally the emblem of the apostle St. James the Greater, of Compostela, but soon became a generic symbol of pilgrim saints and pilgrims. The back of the ampulla is more corroded but the edge appears to have al…

County: Cornwall

Cast copper alloy rim fragment from a bowl or cooking vessel with an internally bevelled rim that is triangular in profile and flush with the upper edge of the vessel. The body of the vessel curves downwards slightly, in profile, to suggest a reasonably deep straight-sided bowl, and the curvature of the rim, in plan, suggests a diameter of about 240 mm. The bevelled rim itself is 6mm thick which then tapers to the body which is 4mm thick. The interior surface of the fragment is pitted and the exterior surface has many parallel horizontal lines which are the result of turning the bowl. …

Cast copperalloy single-looped trapezoidal buckle with sheet copper alloy plate. The frame is 26 in length and 25 mm wide tapering to 19 mm at the narrowed and recessed strap bar.

Object type: ROWEL SPUR
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete copper alloy five pointed star-shaped spur, comprising of five wide triangular points evenly arranged around a circular hub; two are complete, three damaged. Two points terminate in small rounded knops. There is a circular perforation in the centre for attachment that is 3 mm in diameter. Such spur rowels were used in both the medieval and post-medieval periods, and are therefore difficult to give a more specific date to when found outside of an archaeological context. For further examples of five-pointed star rowels with similar decoration, cf. Read 2001, p.66, fig.42, nos.…

A Group I type greenstone axe head, ovate in plan, lozenge-shaped in profile, and round at the butt end and oval at the blade end in cross section. The cutting edge is asymmetrically curved and the butt end is pointed. All surfaces would have originally been pecked and ground but the majority of the axe is now deeply pitted due to weathering with polishing only remaining on the butt and blade end, on both faces, but more remains on the dorsal face of the blade. The deeply pecked face is marked by lighter areas of abrasion which have been caused by later damage, and there are some patc…
