A copper alloy object of uncertain date and function. The object consists of a central solid rod with striations on its outer surface. Wrapped around the central rod is an indistinct rounded piece of copper alloy which may be zoomorphic in nature or perhaps in the form of hands clasping the rod. Examined from one angle the clasping copper alloy appears to be a pig, and a frog from another angle while from the front of the object it appears to be clasped hands. The uncertainty of the decoration and incomplete nature of the object makes it difficult to identify correctly and date. Th…

A copper alloy and gilded fitting of Medieval date, of uncertain function. The object consists of an arm, which is D-shaped in cross-section, and a semi-circular incomplete 'frame'. The arm flattens towards its terminal end where it turns at a 90 degree angle and terminates with a rounded end which is pierced with a regular circular hole. The hole has an internal diameter of 3mm and probably held a rivet. Towards the other end of the arm is a large rounded 'bossed' rivet which remains in-situ. This measures 4.5mm in width and 5mm in height. The arm then separates and narrows forming a…

Two non-joining fragments of an unidentified cast silver artefact. The fragments are rectangular and curved in form with a wedge-shaped cross-section. Both fragments are broken at each end. The concave inner faces are plain and the convex outer faces are decorated with Trewhiddle style ornament. Fragment 1 (left side of image) shows a crouching beast inside an arched panel or arcade, its head looking backwards and biting its own tail, which laces up from beneath its body. Probable remains of niello are visible around the creature's tail and hind legs. To the right of this panel is…

County: Sefton

A lead alloy object of uncertain date and function. The object has a flat base, bulbous body and long tubular neck. At the top of the neck the object flattens out forming a rim. The mouth of the object has been damaged. A circular hole runs through the length of the object and its use as a vessel would therefore be impractical. The hole measures 4.5mm in width. Above the base of the object the lower body is decorated with two transverse rows of grooves in the form of rope-work. Possible functions for the object may be as a votive offering representing a vessel, or a toy. The light …

A copper alloy unidentified object of possible Roman date. The object is irregular in plan and may be in the form of an animal such as a dolphin or a dragon. The object has a curved and pointed 'head' from the top of which is a triangular projection. Behind the 'head' is a circular hole measuring 4mm in diameter for attachment. The object has a triangular arch at the back and curves round where it terminates in a possible tail. The 'tail' is encrusted with a brown corrosion, probably iron, and what appears to be the remains of an iron rivet attached. The surface of the object is …

A lead alloy object of uncertain date and function. The object consists of four conjoined oval projections each with a raised central pellet. The outer edges of the object are undulating and the rear is uneven and irregular. The object appears to be an unfinished peace where the edges have not been filed down and the ovals left un-separated (if they were intended to be separated) however its function is unknown. Another possibility is that it a cast jet with the runners removed and therefore is casting waste. The object has a smooth mid-white patina. Dimensions: 54mm in len…

A copper alloy object of probable Iron Age date of uncertain function. The fragment is curved in plan and profile and is concave. The outer face of the object is decorated with a raised cast V or sub-triangular shaped platform. The outer face of the object is faceted. The object has a smooth light green patina and is in very good condition. Although a parallel is not currently known for this object an Iron Age date has been tentatively suggested based on the patina and condition of the fragment. An object which is similar in profile is this Roman linch pin cover HESH-E8A306, https:…

A lead alloy object of uncertain date and function. The object is sub-triangular in plan and flat. One face is crudely inscribed with the number 12. The opposite face is undecorated. The object may have been used as a gaming piece or counter however this is not certain due to its undiagnostic nature. The object has a mid-white patina.

An incomplete lead alloy object of uncertain function. The object is semi-circular in plan and is flat. Each face is undecorated, rough and pitted. Due to its undiagnostic nature it can not be dated closely however the condition of the lead suggests a Medieval to Post-Medieval date is likely. The object may have functioned as a plam guard however these tend to be D-shaped in cross-section allowing them to sit comfortably in the hand. Palm guards were for use by a leather worker to protect the palm whilst stitching. Bailey (1995, 64-65) dates such objects to the 17th century onwards…

A lead alloy object of uncertain function and date. The object is D-shaped in plan and is rectangular in cross-section. One face of the object appears to show a moulded representation of a stag's head facing left. However the stag is not well defined and may have occurred by chance due to wear and corrosion as opposed to being an intentional motif. The rear of the object is undecorated. The object has a mid-greyish brown patina and is in poor condition. Dimensions: 20.93mm in length, 27.15mm in width, 5.58mm thick, 9.6g.

A piece of gold probable casting waste of uncertain date. The object is irregular in plan and consists of a thin sheet of gold. The object is ridged with a curving pattern which is likely to have occurred when the liquid gold flowed onto an uneven surface and solidified. The gold does not appear to be purpose made with a deliberate pattern. The rear of the object has a dull gold colour and has the appearance of being pressed. The outer face is a brighter gold. The edges of the object are thin and sharp, and have been folded over in places. Due to the undiagnostic nature of this fi…

An unidentified object of possible modern date. The object consists of a curved sub-oval piece of wood, one edge of which has been covered in copper alloy. The wood is cracked and frayed due to drying out and the copper alloy encrusted and corroded. Seven circular rivets attach the copper alloy to the wood. The object is possibly nautical, though its size suggests perhaps from a smaller vessel rather than ship. Possibly the copper/bronze tipping of an oar blade, a fitting off a cutter or lifeboat? Although found within a blue clay layer the rivets suggest a more modern date.

A copper alloy zoomorphic unidentified object probably of Post-Medieval date. The object is C-shaped in plan and sub-triangular in cross-section. It consists of a curved outer frame which terminates with an animal head at one end. The opposite end is broken but is likely to have featured an identical terminal. The terminal is in the form of an animal, possibly a snake or a dog with moulded rounded ears and ridged brows. The eyes are no longer visible and the jaws are open wide. The object has a mid-grey patina. A similar example recorded on the database is Oakden, V (2015) LVPL-5AC…

These projections are rounded and very regular appearing to be complete. …

A cast lead alloy unidentified object of uncertain date. The object is circular in plan and conical. There is no decoration on any face of the object. The edges are smooth and rounded. The object may have functioned as a gaming piece or weight, however due to its un-diagnostic nature this cannot be certain. Alternatively it may have been formed as casting waste. The light cream patina is suggestive of an early date however objects such as this were in use from the Roman through to the Post-Medieval period.
