Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy anthropomorphic casket or reliquary mount with a rectangular flat plate and a spherical knop at one terminal which represents the head above the plate which represents half of the body to the waist. The knop is 7 mm in diameter and has two circular recesses for eyes and a triangular recess below for a nose or mouth. These recesses would have contained glass, if compared to the examples below, and the plate would have originally been enamelled. The plate is very corroded but there is a border with a moulded wavy line that runs parallel to all of the edges and also para…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete sheet copper alloy rectangular buckle plate, broken at the end which attached to the buckle frame, now missing. The plate has a rectangular aperture at this broken end which accommodated the loop of the pin so it could revolve around the pin bar. The opposite complete end of the plate has two smaller rivet holes, which are mm in diameter, and a larger rivet still held in its hole in the centre of this end of the plate. The rivet was made of iron but has mostly corroded into a larger area of iron oxide on the upper face of the plate, though the back of the plate shows it was …

Cast copper alloy sub-annular buckle complete with folded sheet metal buckle plate over the integral central strap bar surrounded by the corroded remains of an iron pin. The buckle frame is oval in plan and convex in section with a bevelled underside. The end of the buckle plate is rounded and has a single rivet hole which Whitehead (1996) on page 48 suggests once held a single upstanding stud and that these small sub-annular buckles were used as shoe buckles after they came back into fashion around 1660. He suggests this type of buckle dates from c.1660 - 1720 and are contemporary wit…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy double-looped buckle frame, D-shaped in section with a straight inner edge and a rounded outer edge and flat back to the frame. Only one loop and the stub of the second is present. The central strap bar is narrowed and flush with the frame and triangular in section. The pin is missing and there is no actual pin notch but there are traces of wear on the frame where the pin would have rested. There are patches of black lacquer on the upper face and back of the frame, which as a layer would have protected the surface of the copper alloy from corroding. Whi…

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead biconical spindle whorl. Both surfaces of the whorl are decorated with raised pellets, chevrons and lines radiating from the central perforation to the outer edge. The surface of the whorl is in good condition, with most of the decoration surviving, but the edge is worn in places. The central hole, which would have held a wooden spindle, is 9 mm in diameter. This perforation might also have been used to suspend the whorl, which lends itself to the theory that these were used as weights. These whorls are common finds in other regions of the country, but not as common in Cornwa…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete cast copper alloy horse harness pendant in the form of a circle with four equally spaced knops, which would have originally been suspended within a quatrefoil frame, now missing. Between the upper two knops the circular plate extends into an arm with the suspension loop at its terminus. The loop hole is 2 mm in diameter and has broken open, so that the pendant has been divorced from its frame. The plate appears to have had some decoration but the surfaces are too corroded to make out any detail. Read (2001) illustrates horse harness pendants with four lobes or more knops on…

Incomplete sheet copper alloy mount decorated on the upper face with punched dots in for the form of a heart with two eyes at the apex and a trefoil terminal with punched lozenges that appear like ears, so that the whole composition looks like an owl's face. One end of the mount is broken but appears to have had two openwork circles or two attachment loops that would have extended beyond this riveted end of the mount. The rivet hole is only 1.3 mm in diameter and the rivet is missing, or it might have been a sewing hole as the object is so delicate and thin. The mount is also lacquered…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a cast copper alloy Roman Dolphin brooch with just the lower bow, foot and part of the catchplate remaining and missing the main part of the bow, head, wings and pin. The fragment has the remains of worn zig-zag, leaf-like mouldings either side of a pair of central grooves running the length of the bow. The two grooves form the border either side of a moulded cabled pattern down the centre of the bow, which may have originally been enamelled, as on other examples recorded. The brooch looks like a worn version of a similar brooch found in Lanlivery which is a Dolphin-type br…

Incomplete cast copper alloy Roman hinged Dolphin-type brooch, missing the wings, pin and catchplate. There is iron corrosion product within the hollow back of the head of the brooch suggesting that the hinge and pin were made of iron. The head of the brooch has a flat recessed central square which then steps into a lozenge-shape crest which tapers into a triangular neck that is defined by oblique grooves on either side. There are also incised oblique lines on the lower neck and stamped roundels in transverse rows across the raised lozenge, but the surface is also pitted from corrosion…

Fragment of a cast copper alloy dress pin with just the polygonal head remaining and the beginning of the pin shaft. The head is polyhedral in form (a cuboid with the corners cut off), but with a pointed terminus, square in plan and section and lozenge-shaped in profile with twelve faces. The head is 15 mm in height, 9 mm in width and 8 mm in thickness. The faces are corroded but each of the four main faces have a single central punched annulet, but there does not appear to be any decoration on the upper four faces, which would have been seen from above. Beneath the head the shaft is c…

British Museum Catalogue Type: 2790; ABC 2175; Van Arsdell Type: 1290-1, which is dated from 30 BC to AD 10, but current thinking now dates them from the first half of the 1st century AD.

Incomplete silver long cross penny of Edward III (1327-1377), First Coinage (1327-1343), Class 15d (1327-43), issued from 1338 in Reading mint, crown with upright bifoliate side fleurs.

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a silver long cross penny, three quarters of which is missing. The only part of the inscription which survives on the obverse reads DWA R A, which indicates it is a coin of Edward I (1272 - 1307), and most likely Class 10 from the end of his reign. On the reverse the only part of the inscription remaining is LON, which indicates a London mint. The bust is almost worn away, and only the right fleur on the crown is visible, but it appears to be trifoliate, which makes this coin belong to Class 10ab (Withers 2006, 36-37) which dates from c.1300-1305.
