Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An iron axe, axehead or hatchet of uncertain date possibly Medieval but more likely to be post medieval date (1000 - 1800 AD). The axe is incomplete and only the blade and cutting edge survive - it is broadly sub-triangular in plan with an irregular expanded blade: in profile it is wedge shaped. The socket of the axe is broken and the break is old and patinated- because of the break it is uncertain how the socket was formed. The butt of the axe is lost. The internal face of the socket has the remains of iron impregnated wood imbedded within the corrosion. As the blade expands in width …

Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Telford and Wrekin
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A heavily eroded and probably miscast palstave axehead of Middle Bronze Age date (1500-1300 BC Needham Period 5 Burgess's Metal Working Stage VIII and IX). The axehead is smooth and water worn being broadly a pointed oval shape in plan and irregular in cross section. The butt and blade are incomplete both having rounded edges. It is possible that the axe may have been broken in antiquity and then been eroded through water / abrasion to form this shape. Alternatively the axe may have never been the standard form and been discarded shortly after being miscast. The upper and lower blade …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An elaborate cast and enamelled copper alloy pommel from a small sword or dagger of Medieval date (1150-1350). The pommel is broadly rectangular in plan and profile; in broad shape it is a stylised crown with a broad central lis and two bi-foliate side fleurs, the details of which are picked out within an openwork design. The right hand fleur is lost due to an old patinated break which is flush with the body of the pommel. The petals of the lis and side fleurs conjoin. A small sub-rectangular cast hole (measuring 5.7mm x 3.8mm) is present on the upper edge positioned at the peak of the…

Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper alloy champlev√© enamelled mount - most probably from a casket or reliquary chest of high medieval date (c. AD. 1150-1250). The style of the mount is not as elegant as that known from Limoges and it is possible this may be an English or another continental piece in the same style. The plate is flat and rectangular; in profile it is bowed slightly, possibly by movement in the ploughsoil but probably by being levered from the wooden casket. The two ends of the mount are both broken and the breaks are patinated suggesting the damage is in antiquity / old. Four rivet holes ar…

Object type: SEAL MATRIX

County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A near complete but eroded cast copper alloy pedestal / pendant seal matrix of medieval date (1250-1400). The die is broadly circular in plan whilst the reverse pedestal rises to a suspension loop. The body of the matrix is a pedestal formed from six irregular tapering sides. At the apex would have been a moulded band surmounted by a single loop. This is lost and the pedestal is distrorted - the break is however old and patinated suggesting the damage occurred in antiquity. A larger oval scar is present on one face of the pedestal and it is likely this obscures a mark which would have …

An incomplete cast copper alloy tankard handle of probable later Iron Age or very early Roman date (c. 150 BC - 100 AD).

The handle is fragmentary consisting of the mid-section / handle only; the breaks on the upper and lower edges are old and patinated suggesting damage in antiquity. In plan the handle is irregular being broadly sub-rectangular; in profile it is bowed with an even (elegant) curve; the cross section is irregular. The upper…
