Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A fragmentary copper-alloy object of medieval date, probably a mount or binding strip (c. 12th-13th century). It consists of a length of strip of D-shaped cross-section interrupted by an open ring. The front of the strip is decorated with moulded transverse grooves which creates ridged decoration; the ring is plain. The ring is located off centre on the strip suggesting that it is a broken fragment, though the breaks are old as each end is smooth. The object has a dark-green patina over red-brown metal. The object is 48.5 mm long, 13.1 mm wide at the ring, up to 4.8 mm wide at the …

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a copper-alloy ingot of probable late Bronze Age date, c. 1150 - 600BC. Part of a plano-convex (bun) discoid ingot possibly suggesting the production in a bowl furnace rather than a mould. The upper is flat and the bottom is convex. Only a small section remains with a part of the original edge and very worn irregular breaks on the other sides. The section of the outside edge is too small to idenify the complete diameter. The ingot is pitted likely due to a mix of impurities in its matrix and the uneven natural material used to create the bowl in which it was cast. The f…

Copper alloy rectangular bar shaped ingot of uncertain, probably Early Medieval date. The bar is roughly square in section, tapering slightly in width and thickness from one end to the other. The ends appear either complete or possibly cut neatly in antiquity. Two of the long faces have a series of transverse hammer dents creating irregularly spaced ridges and grooves. Similar ridging is seen on the wider end of another face while the forth face is mostly corroded, obscuring most details but may have had similar hammer marks. The piece is 60.7mm long, 11.4mm by 11.1mm at the wider end…

Fragment of a possibly zoomorphic copper alloy Medieval buckle or possibly brooch frame. The frame is roughly oval with a straight, recessed bar and probably a recessed pin rest. Almost all of one side remains and is moulded seemingly into the shape of a quadraped, leopard or dog, with their back legs by the strap bar, body ending in a double transverse collar at the widest point (the shoulders), very worn but possibly projecting head and front paws reaching forward to clasp the pin rest. Due to the amount of wear however this identification is uncertain. The fragment is 19.8mm long, 1…

Sub-spherical fired clay bead of uncertain date. The bead is circular in cross section and slightly flattened top and bottom with a circular hole 3.0mm in diameter running through it.

One end of a rectangular sectioned whetstone and a non-joining end fragment which may or may not be from the same stone. The larger piece narrows and thins to a sharp point at the complete end.

One end of a rectangular and rectangular secetioned whet stone with a drilled circular hole through the remaining complete end.
