Object type: DAGGER
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy dagger pommel, probably dating from the early post-Medieval period. The pommel takes the form of a central block with four equally-spaced columns around its perimeter. The rectangular-sectioned tang hole extends vertically through the centre of the block, tapering towards the top. Each of the columns is of pelta-shaped cross section and splays outwards from the base. A pair of grooves extends around the base of the pommel, running parallel to the bottom edge; a second such pair is located near the top. The upper surface of each of the columns has a concave band extendin…

Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a lead-alloy personal seal matrix, dating from the Medieval period. The piece is irregular, but the curvature of the intact side suggests this is part of an originally circular matrix. An unsuccessful attempt was made to read the engraved circumferential legend, and the nature of the central design is also unclear. On the reverse, a rim extends around the edge. Length: 26.5mm; width: 11.4mm; thickness: 3.6mm. Weight: 4.18g. Personal seal matrices of this form became popular in the late 12th century and continued to be used well into the 13th (Harvey and McGuinness 1996: 79).

The dark blue enamel inset in this cell survives largely intact, interrupted only by an internal curve of three raised pellets. A vertical lug projects downwards from each corner of the upper bow.

County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Late Iron Age to Early Roman copper-alloy Nauheim-derivative brooch. The brooch, which has been cast as one piece, is largely intact, but the bow, spring and pin are much distorted. The bow is of D-shaped cross section, tapering at the top, where it has been rolled backwards to form four spring coils and an internal chord. The intact pin extends from the centre of this spring. For much of its length the bow is parallel-sided, but the sides converge at the bottom, terminating in a pointed foot, on the underside of which is an unperforated catchplate with rolled outer side.

A copper-alloy open-frame brooch, dating from the Medieval period. The frame is broadly oval in plan and of flat section. Halfway down each side is a circular collet flanked by a pair of basal grooves. Both of these collets are empty, revealing in each a circular perforation in the frame. The collets interrupt two parallel lines of zigzag grooves that extend around the upper surface of the frame.

A lead-alloy papal bulla of Pope Gregory IX, pontiff between 1227 and 1241. The slightly distorted 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.

An incomplete silver halfpenny of Henry VIII, dating to the period 1526-1547. Tower mint. This would appear to be an unpublished, 'transitional', coin for which the 2nd issue (1526-1544) obverse die has been employed. On the reverse, a ring overlies the centre of the cross; this ring is only listed as appearing on the 3rd issue coin (1544-1547), when it also has a central pellet. It is classified as North 1815/1859 variant. A similar coin is discussed by Mike Vosper (https://www.vosper4coins.co.uk/Ivanbuck/H8.htm; accessed 24.7.15). Diameter: 9.9mm; thickness: 0.7mm. Weight: 0.2g.

A post-Medieval lead-alloy lid from a jug. The discoidal lid is largely intact, but there is some damage to the outer edge. Two concentric grooves decorate the upper surface; these are overlain by the lozenge-shaped base plate of the hinge, the upper surface of which is decorated by a moulded fleur-de-lis. At its outer end this plate extends into a T-shaped thumb-rest which angles forwards. From the back of the junction between the thumb-rest and base plate extends a circular loop, which would originally have slotted between two lugs on the now-missing handle, forming a hinge. Width/…

An incomplete copper-alloy Roman bracelet. The surviving piece would appear to represent approximately three quarters of the original bracelet, which would probably have been of penannular type, with two squared-off terminals separated by a short gap. The bracelet is of flat section, parallel-sided and retains its original curvature. Two parallel grooves, centrally located, extend around the outer surface, with a series of angled incisions in the central space, creating the impression of a ropework line. On either side of this ropework strand is a parallel line of punched rings. A sha…

An incomplete copper-alloy cosmetic mortar, dating from the Late Iron Age to Early Roman period. The artefact is largely complete, but most of the loop has been lost in antiquity and there is a small amount of modern damage to the distal end. The bowed object is of U-shaped cross section, flaring towards the distal end, reaching a maximum width two thirds of the way along, then tapering again and terminating in a moulded lobe. Remnants of the loop project downwards from beneath the proximal end. Traces of an unidentified substance adhere to the surface of the groove; this material is …
