A sherd from a Roman samian bowl. The large, unabraded sherd represents most of the base and part of the wall from a steep-sided bowl. What remains of the decoratively moulded band indicates a continuous palisade design comprising a series of foliate columns, possibly interspersed with festoons. A raised double ring with central groove separates this decoration from a plain band adjacent to the footring. A stamped maker's mark, reading 'OF IĈ§ACRI', is contained within this plain lower band. The bowl displays evidence of burning, both in the form of adhering surface material and in t…

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint arrowhead or point, dating from the Early Neolithic to Early Bronze Age. The piece has been made from a secondary flake and is sub-triangular. Retouch is limited; however, where it does occur, it is generally long, sub-parallel and low angle, although at some points around the edges it is short, sub-parallel and abrupt. The flint is mid grey with a lighter, patinated surface on one side. A concave area at the bottom may represent damage. Length: 56.3 mm; width: 36.8 mm; thickness: 8.1 mm. Weight: 17.39 g.

Object type: BULLA
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead-alloy papal bulla of Pope Boniface VIII, pontiff between 1294 and 1303. The bulla is of typical form, being discoidal and having a vertical perforation, in which the cord for tying up the document would have been located. The obverse bears the relief-moulded heads of St. Peter (right) and St. Paul (left), who face inwards, each surrounded by a beaded curve and probably separated from one another by the shaft of a central cross, although, due to the level of wear, this is not visible. The legend 'SPASPE' ('Saint Paul and St. Peter') extends horizontally above the two heads. On t…

Object type: KEY (LOCKING)
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A post-medieval copper-alloy rotary key. The bow is sub-oval and has two internal projections on its inner side. A ridged collar separates the bow from the stem, the latter of which is of oval cross section and tapers towards its distal end, where there is a right-angled, rectangular bit. Length: 34.4 mm; height: 15.3 mm; thickness: 4.4 mm. Weight: 3.18 g. Similar keys are illustrated and described by Brian Read, who suggests a 16th century date (2001: Fig. 47/pp.67-68, nos. 563-567). This style of key was, however, commonly made for furniture as late as the 19th century.

County: Hampshire

A copper-alloy awl, probably dating from the Late Bronze Age The widest part of the awl is approximately one third of the way along its length; either side of this point, the piece tapers. The longer portion is of rectangular cross section, displays evidence of filing on its surfaces and tapers to a wedge-shaped terminal. The remaining third also has a broadly rectangular cross section, but in this portion the corners have been deliberately removed, probably by filing. The patinated surfaces are almost black in some areas, perhaps suggesting that a coating was applied in antiquity. L…

A post-medieval copper-alloy drop handle from a piece of furniture. An angular hanger with horizontal bar projects from the top of the broadly D-shaped handle.

A small corner fragment of a socketed axe dating from the Late Bronze Age, probably around 1000-800BC. The fragment is long, retaining the corner of the mouth moulding and a smaller moulding below. The surfaces are very worn and slightly pitted. There may be a fragmentary loop/break left on one side.

An incomplete copper-alloy spout from a late medieval ewer. The three-dimensional piece takes the form of a bird with tubular body. The form of the bird is broadly that of an elongated 'S', although the back of the upper neck has a flattened appearance. Damage has occurred at the tail end, by which the spout would originally have been attached to the vessel. The legs, which flank the base of the spout, are incomplete; interestingly, however, one of the lower legs, with a three-toed claw, was found slotted into the base of the broken spout, the claw thus resembling a foreshortened tail…
