Object type: STRAP END
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A damaged and bent copper-alloy plate from a Medieval composite strap-end. The plate has been folded widthways, possibly deliberately, and would originally have been sub-rectangular. At its bottom end the sides angle inwards, terminating in a central knop. The current outer surface displays both file marks and solder and is likely to have been the original inner surface of the plate. Length: 19mm; width: 12.6mm; thickness (total): 3mm. Weight: 1.24g. A range of similar composite strap-ends were found in excavations in London, where their contexts ranged in date from the late 13th to…

Record ID: BH-390F4A
Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Part of a copper-alloy seal matrix, dating from the Medieval period. The top portion of the pointed-oval matrix survives, with the apex loop extending upwards from the flat reverse. Nothing remains of the central image, and the legend is unclear. The break is angled, worn and there is a suggestion of a central piercing. Length: 20.8mm; width: 22.4mm. thickness: 7.8mm. Weight: 5.35g. It is likely that this matrix has been deliberately broken, in order to render it unusable. For other examples of this practice, see PAS records BH-56F3E0 and SUSS-775302.

Object type: BRICK
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Central Bedfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a post-Medieval glazed brick. The sub-rectangular piece retains parts of its flat upper surface and three vertical sides. The central feature of the upper surface is part of a decorative impression in which a wide, straight-sided and flat-bottomed depression flares into a circular terminal with four 'petals' around a central ring. The fabric of the brick is reddish-brown and the surfaces have a black glaze. Length: 115mm; width: 116.6mm; thickness: 58mm. Weight: 978g. The surface design and use of glaze suggest this is a decorative brick, probably dating from the 18th …

A shaped stone weight, probably dating from the Medieval period and produced for weighing down a fish trap. The weight has been carved from local oolitic limestone and is roughly T-shaped.

Much of the surface is covered by a dark stain from its deposition or use. Height: 145mm; width: 92.5mm; thickness: 62.7mm; hole diameter: 18.2mm. Weight: 863.1g. These weights are discussed by Dennis C. Mynar…

A post-Medieval stoneware Bellarmine jug (also known as a Beardman/Bartmaan jug). The body of the vessel is sub-globular, with a flat base and conical neck (damaged).

The typical moulded human mask is situated at the junction of neck and body; it has a ladder-like mouth, 'flower pad' moustache and corded beard. Below this, occupying the centre of the body, are the arms of Amsterdam. A stub of the handle base is visible on the reverse, located at the top of the body. A n…

County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead-alloy cannonball in the form of a solid-cast sphere. The piece is roughly cast and the surface exhibits numerous marks, including linear grooves and shorter, shallow depressions, most of which are likely to be post-depositional damage.

An Early-Medieval copper-alloy hooked tag. The piece comprises a flat-sectioned plate with a pair of perforated lugs at the top and a rearward hook at the base.
