Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL

On one side of the object is a raised motif in the shape of an anchor. On the reverse of the object is a sexfoil motif which is again raised.

A lead ampulla probably dating to the medieval period, c. AD 1350 to 1550. The object has a rounded body and a broad neck and has been flattened, probably through depositional activity.
