Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Gloucestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A medieval lead circular uniface token of Powell type 14, probably dating to c. AD 1200-1500. The token depicts a raised cross. Dimensions: diameter: 15.47mm; 1.64mm thick; weight 2.89g. Lead tokens had a wide variety of uses and were made locally; they are therefore hard to date precisely and could be medieval or post medieval in date. Tokens of Powell's type 14 are thought to imitate medieval pennies, and may therefore be of the same date.

A medieval lead token dating to c AD 1400-1500. The token is decorated on both sides.

The dating is based on the similarity of the crude decoration to a silver long cross penny.

An incomplete late medieval lead pilgrim's ampulla (holy water flask) dating to the period AD 1350-1530. The ampulla is incomplete as the neck is missing. All that remains is the rounded body of the ampulla which has been flattened. The cast marks along the edges are visible. The flattening of the ampulla means that the decoration is not very clear but it appears to have scallop shell decoration (the symbol of pilgrimage) on one side and there appears to have been a decorative motif on the other side. Ampullae were designed to contain a dose of thaumaturgic (magic or miracle) water…
