Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An unidentified cast copper-alloy object, which may be a dagger chape or an item of personal adornment. A similar 'moustache object' was found as part of the Salibury hoard (I.M. Stead; 1998; no. 117); they are thought to be of early Iron Age date. The object has been cast in one piece and is roughly symmetrical. It has the appearance of a moustache, being crescentic, with a vertical central depression and tapering to a point at each end. The underside is plain, with an oval depression at the centre. It measures 24.8mm in length, 19.1mm in width and 9.6mm in thickness.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.…
