Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: St. Helens

A piece of copper-alloy morphologically similar to the shape of a flat axehead, possibly casting waste from a manufacturing process. The object is roughly pear shaped in silhouette, with a rough texture that appears to be partly from corrosion and partly from the natural grain of the metal.

A complete copper alloy object of uncertain date and function. The object consists of a long hook, measuring 85mm in length before it curves, tapering in width to a rounded point. The hook is circular in cross-section. At the top of the object the hook expands and flattens to form an integral loop. The loop has an internal diameter of 14mm. The object has a mid-green patina and is undecorated. It is in fair condition. Dimensions: 85mm in length, 20mm in width (at the loop), 8.60g. The exact function of the object is unknown however the form and lack of decoration suggests it…

An incomplete copper alloy object, probably dating to the Early Medieval period. The object is rectangular in plan and cross-section. One long edge is incomplete due to ancient breaks and has a slight rectangular projection in the centre. Along the opposite long edge is a pierced sub-oval projection, which projects at a right angle to the body of the object. The front of the object is decorated with a rectangular recessed panel. The panel is infilled with transverse decoration of ridges and grooves and is gilded. To the rear of the object two circular possible rivet holes are visi…

An lead alloy object of uncertain function. The object is circular in plan and is D-shaped in cross-section. The flat face is rough and uneven with no visible pitting. Due to its undiagnostic nature it cannot be dated closely however the condition of the lead suggests a Post-Medieval date is likely. The object may have functioned as a palm guard however there are no diagnostic features. 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.

An incomplete copper alloy object of uncertain function, probably dating from the medieval to the post-medieval period. The object is sub-circular in plan with a wide rearward projecting hook at one end. At the opposite straight edged end of the object are two rounded projections which curve inwards and may have joined. The majority of the surface decoration has been obscured with corrosion however where the corrosion hasn't taken hold gilding is visible on each face. At the junction between the hooked tab and the body of the object is a double moulded inverted V-shaped ridge. A…

A copper alloy object of uncertain date and function. The object is U-shaped in plan with zoomorphic duck or bird terminals. Extending down from the centre of the object is a circular-sectioned shaft, measuring 3mm thick, which appears to be hollow and is soil filled. The birds are each identical with open mouths and rounded beaks and circular annulet eyes. At the top of each head is an undulating raised ridge. The back of the bird's heads appears to have once joined each other at this ridge. Surrounding the eyes the surface is stained red, this may possibly be the remains of degraded…

A copper-alloy unidentified object of Unknown date and uncertain function. This 'Y'-shaped hollow object has three cylindrical arms. One arm is longer than the other two and each arm swells towards their terminal ends.

The object is narrowed in the centre which is decorated by a transverse band measuring 3mm in width. Each end of the object is decorated with a grooved saltire cross (or X). The lower face of the object is undecorated. It has a light green patina an is in fair condition. The patina and decoration suggests a medieval to post-medieval date, c. AD 1400-1700. The exact function of the object is uncertain however it may be a vessel handle or decorative frame. Dimensions 65mm …

A copper alloy object of uncertain function probably dating from the medieval to post-medieval period. The object is conical in plan with a thickened central body which tapers at each end in width towards a break. The central body of the object is decorated with three circumferential ridges. Each end narrows in width measuring 8mm in diameter where it terminates. The object has a mid-dark green patina. Although the function of this fragment is uncertain the patina and condition of the metal suggests a medieval to post-medieval date. Dimensions: 25mm in length, 24mm in width, 42.3g

An incomplete lead alloy impression of a coin. The impression in the object is of a penny of George III, (1760-1820). The legend reads GEORBIUS III D G REX; surrounding the laureate bust of the king facing right. The reverse of the object is undecorated. The object has a raised rim. The object has been bent and the edges damaged probably due to the plough. It has a dark brown patina beneath which is a dark grey surface where it has been damaged. The object may have been used for forging coins and so will presumably have been made while the coin itself remained in circulation. It…

The object is flattned at the back with several scratches and nicks on the surface. It tapers towards the top where it terminates with an oval opening or neck. The object has a mid-brown patina. It was suggested due to a similar form that the object could be an ampulla however the lack of decoration, handles and the shape of the 'bowl' make this unlikely. Another possibility based on the angle of the object is a lead alloy covering for a foot of a large…

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 cast copper alloy unidentified object, possibly a decorative pin or mount, of later medieval or post-medieval date (1400-1700). The object is broadly sub-rectangular in plan with flared 'heart shaped' terminals at either end and is probably complete. It has a sub rectangular cross-section. The central part of the fitting is thickened and a vertical hole has been drilled from the upper-lower edge. The hole is central and is oval. A circular sectioned pin remains within the hole, rising up from the top of the object before turning back on itself (rearwards), tapering downwards and ter…

A cast copper alloy object probably dating to the Roman period of uncertain function. The object is pelta shaped in plan and is incomplete. Each end of the object curves round forming an incomplete oval but terminates with recent breaks. It is unclear whether each 'arm' would have joined or remained separate. Either side of the object is an incomplete perforation the edges of which are bevelled on either side. At the centre of the wider end of the object is an incomplete projection which terminates with an ancient break. This may have formed a decorative knop or an attachment loop. …
