Object type: TILE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Part of a glazed Medieval tile, probably a floor tile, dating from c. 1300 - 1500. The tile is sqaure in shape though the edges are not entirely straight, which could be the result of damage. Both surfaces are glazed, though one is more heavily glazed than the other, and is a distinctive light brown colour. The surface of the glazed face is not even, and is pitted and rough in places. There is evidence of abrasions on the surface, one of which looks very much like a '2'. The fabric of the tile is a solid orange in colour and has some small quartz inclusions. Because the tile was found…

Fragment of a glazed Medieval tile, probably a floor tile, dating from c. 1300 - 1500. The fragment is a small portion of what was likely a square shaped tile. The fabric is a bright orange and relatively fine with very small mica inclusions. The core is reduced and dark grey in colour. Interestingly, both surfaces are glazed, though only one surface is decorated with patterning. The pattern itself is not known but it is made from a raised ceramic design which may have been decorated with a coloured slip. The background is glazed. Dimensions: weight: 14.8g, length: 46.6mm, width: 23.6…

Cast copper-alloy shield shaped stud of Medieval date, c. 1250 -1400. The artifact is shield shaped and flat on the back. A blunted stud projects from the undecorated back. The surface is decorated with enamel, and is heraldic in design. There is a thick band of red enamel running diagonally across the shield face. Much of the enamel is worn and most is missing. Within it appears to be a diagonal line of three lis. The decoration outside of the band on the face of the shield is very worn. It is probable that studs such as these were used alongside other heraldic harness decoratio…

Cast copper-alloy shield shaped harness pendant. The surface of the pendant is decorated in moulded relief and the pattern is a diagonal cross-hatch across the entire surface, with a diagonal band running from the upper left to the lower right edge (when viewed head-on). There is also evidence of gilding present on the surface. The back is plain and undecorated. There is an attachment stem that rises from the centre of the top edge, and would likely originally have featured a drilled hole, perpendicular to the plane of the pendant face. This hole would have facilitated hanging. Pend…

Sheet metal silver pendant with punched attachment hole. The artefact is circular in shape and flat. The surface has a raised decoration which has been punched or pressed, and shows a cross in the centre with flower-like radiating blossoms surrounding it. The back of the item is plain but shows the impression from the design on the front. It is extremely delicate and the finder notes that it was falling apart soon after it was found. The finder has since secured it in plastic. Please note that this gives a false weight reading. Based on the style of the motif and the manufacture met…

Fragment of a Roman copper-alloy finger ring. Only the collet and empty bezel cup remain. The collet is hexagonal in shape.

Fragment of a copper-alloy and enamel inlaid Roman plate brooch of zoomorphic design. Dating from c. AD 50 - 300. The brooch face is flat and takes the form of a hare or hound leaping to the right. The rear portion of the brooch is missing, as are the ears and front feet of the animal, making it particularly difficult to say whether it is a hare or hound. The snub nose however, would suggest that the animal is more likely to be a hare. The body of the animal is inlaid with decorative red enamel in a series of four slanting lines facing back toward the rear. The back of the animal is …
