Cast copper alloy asymmetrical knee or shoe buckle with a drilled frame for a separate spindle and traces of tinning. The buckle is shield-shaped with one square end and one pointed end. The frame is D-shaped in section, chamfered around the inner edge and flat on the back. The frame is thickened in the middle of each arm to accommodate the holes drilled to insert the spindle, which is missing. The spindle was probably made of iron as there are patches of iron oxide on the frame around the holes. There are also patches of tinning on the front and back of the frame. Whitehead (1996) il…

Silver long cross penny of Edward IV (1461-1483), second reign (1471-1483), probably Durham mint. The coin has been clipped so that the legends are missing, but the obverse has a V to the right of the neck, which suggests it is an episcopal issue of Bishop Dudley of Durham (1476-1483). The bust is identified as Edward IV by the shape of the head and crown and the V. The crescent shaped hollow at the base of the neck is illustrated on a penny of Bishop Dudley in Spink (2007) on page 196 no.2123, which has a D to the left of the neck and V to the right. No.2122 (also Bishop Dudley at Dur…

County: Dorset

Copper alloy Anglo-Gallic jetton with geometrical tracery on the obverse similar to that on the window of the vestry at Merton College, Oxford, which dates from c.1310. The pictorial obverse is contemporary with sterling bust jettons dating from c.1280-1343 like Mitchiner p.116, no.243, but the closest reference is the Anglo-Gallic jetton recorded in Barnard (1981) on page 101, pl.II, fig.35, no.35, which is not dated and where the obverse is not illustrated but appears similar from the description.

Object type: AMPULLA
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead pilgrim ampulla or holy water flask with the neck folded over to close the vessel. The ampulla is bag shaped with no evidence for loops at the side of the neck, used to suspend the flask from a cord around the pilgrim's neck. The ampulla is decorated on the front with raised radiating lines that form a scallop shell pattern, typical of ampullae. The scallop shell was originally the emblem of the apostle St. James the Greater, of Compostela, but soon became a generic symbol of pilgrim saints and pilgrims. The back of the ampulla is more corroded but the edge appears to have al…

Cast copper alloy rim fragment from a bowl or cooking vessel with an internally bevelled rim that is triangular in profile and flush with the upper edge of the vessel. The body of the vessel curves downwards slightly, in profile, to suggest a reasonably deep straight-sided bowl, and the curvature of the rim, in plan, suggests a diameter of about 240 mm. The bevelled rim itself is 6mm thick which then tapers to the body which is 4mm thick. The interior surface of the fragment is pitted and the exterior surface has many parallel horizontal lines which are the result of turning the bowl. …
