Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Large cast copper alloy double-looped oval buckle frame with a moulded escallop with seven oblique grooves on each outer edge. The original surface has worn away in patches so that the decoration is unclear, but vines and scrolls are common motifs seen on these types of buckles and there appears to be a definite repeated pattern on the upper face of the strap bar. There is a small rounded knop at either end of the strap bar which is narrowed and flush with the frame. The knops are defined by oblique incised lines on either side. The surface is very corroded and pitted and the central s…

Cast copper alloy dress hook or single sharp-hooked clasp with a square attachment loop, with four square attachment holes that are 1.5 mm squared, within it. The clasp then expands into bifid knops which form the upper edge of a moulded scallop shell that has eight raised oblique bands running longitudinally down the face with a central perforation that is 4 mm in diameter and may have been used to secure the dress hook further. The back of the shell is hollow. Below the shell is a recessed transverse band above a raised collar which then tapers into the broken hook, now only 5 mm lon…

Object type: ROWEL SPUR
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy spur rowel dating from the Post-medieval period c.1500-1700. The rowel is in the form of a six pointed star with narrow arms, 5 mm thick, which taper from the centre of the rowel and terminate in a point that is 3 mm thick. The arms are slightly flattened on both sides of the rowel, making them ovoid in section, but there is no other decoration. In the centre is a perforation which is circular in shape and measures 3 mm in diameter. Two of the points of the star are broken. Read (2016) illustrates a similar rowel with six points on p.71, no.510 which is dated from t…

Incomplete cast copper alloy Roman trumpet brooch with blue, red and yellow enamelled inlay. The trumpet-shaped head triangulates slightly to an apex, where there is no evidence of a headplate, but a vertical wire head-loop projects from the back across a hollow circular section to the other edge of the head which would have held the spring mechanism and pin, both now missing. The decoration on the bow is mirrored along the central axis and comprises a lozenge-shaped recessed cell at the apex, with some yellow enamel still within it, above two sets of outward facing C-shaped cells fill…

Silver hammered long cross penny of Edward II (1307-27), Class 10cf3 (1307-1309) with letters 'A' and 'N' with exaggerated serifs (Wood, 1989, p.44). The coin is very worn, but the letter N in ANGL on the obverse appears directly below the point where the two wedges of the drapery meet at the base of the neck, a feature which only appears from the issue of Class 10 onwards. The central fleur of the crown is also very tall, which suggests Class 10cf3 (Withers, 2006, p.36, crown 3).

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a cast copper alloy door knocker, Georgian (1714-1830) in date. The knocker expands in plan to the base, which swells to an ovoid knop on top with two circular lugs on either side, which acted as the handle for the knocker. In profile the knocker curves outwards to form a scroll, typical of Georgian decoration. The knocker is only a third of what it once was, from parallels seen on-line, and would have continued to taper and then terminated in a scroll back on itself with lugs either side as part of the pivot and hinge which was mounted on to the door. The surface of the kn…

A lead papal bulla of Pope Urban IV (1261-1264). The obverse has a pelleted border, and has the raised letters in three lines: VR / BANVS / PP IIII. PP stands for 'pastor pastorum'.

A silver cut half of a voided long cross penny of Henry III (1216-1272), Long cross coinage (1247-1272), Class IIIc (1248-1250) with short beard and pellet-footed 'R'. The obverse inscription begins at 12 o'clock, which indicates that the class belongs to I-III, and on the reverse the inscription reads [A]SO/NG/, which suggests that the moneyer was Lucas (Class IIb-IIIc) and the mint Gloucester. The full inscription would therefore have read LVC/ASO/NG/LOV.
