An incomplete copper alloy Roman zoomorphic brooch in the shape of a hound, dating to AD 100-300. The brooch comprises the head of the hound and part of the upper body, but the fore limbs, hind legs and pin are missing. The triangular catch plate survives on the reverse of the hound's head. A tiny amount of bright blue enamel survives in the area of the hound's eye, and in two bands on the body, giving it a possibly pied appearance.  The hound itself is represented as a lightweight hunting dog with an extended slender snout and muzzle, and a markedly exaggerated long ear…

Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy mount dating to the early medieval period, c. AD 1000-1100. The mount is petite and incomplete, comprising an openwork area of a larger zoomorphic mount, possibly from harness or for decoration. There are two circular apertures at the lower part of the broader tongue-shaped mount, which also has a small proturbation extending from it which is pointed oval in shape and may be intended to represent an ear. There are then two small extending prongs above the apertures which give a slightly bovine appearance. The upper surface of the mount is decorated wit…

Object type: BUTTON
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy button dating to the post medieval period, c. AD 1500-1700. The button would have originally been circular in shape and flattened in section. Approximately 50% of the button now survives. It is an openwork design, composed of three large apertures in the centre and four smaller circular apertures which are preserved in full. Between these is a swirling design which is composed of laureate style leaves and circular rings. It is reminiscent of Read (2016) No's 231 and 275 which are dated from the 15th to 17th centuries. Measurements: 26.1mm diameter,…

County: Devon

An incomplete late Iron Age to Roman copper alloy Hod Hill type brooch dating to AD 40-80. The bow of the brooch is present, with one of the upper parts of the hinge, although the other is missing. It preserves the waisted shape of the bow with the bulbous lower terminal and upper flaring plate. Similar examples to this fragment are illustrated by Hattat (2000: fig 181-2) described as Hod Hill brooches dating to the 1st century AD. Bayley and Butcher (2004: 15) support the dating of this form to be between AD 43 and 75. This fragment is too small to arrive at a comprehensiv…

An incomplete late Iron Age to Roman copper alloy probable trumpet shaped brooch dating to AD 100-150. Only the bow of the brooch survives, but the characteristic flared "trumpet" shape is present at the terminal of the bow which is fairly suggestive of its type. It is also slightly exaggerated in its bend, flaring upwards and downwards sharply to give a triangular impression when viewed from the side. Measurements: 38.9mm length, 7.8mm width, 4.9mm thickness, weight 5.93.

An incomplete late Iron Age to Roman copper alloy probable initial T-shaped brooch dating to AD 100-150. Only the bow of the brooch survives, with no trace of the wings, catchplate or pin. The bow itself is broken at its upper end, so there is no clear suggestion as to its type, although it is likely to be a south western variant on a t-shaped brooch. Underneath the upper part of the bow is a rectangular raised section which is decorated with three horizontal incised lines. The terminal of the bow is sharply pointed and almost spiky in appearance. Measurements: 35.4mm lengt…

The bow itself is broken at its upper end, so there is no clear suggestion as to its type, although it is likely to be a south western variant on a t-shaped brooch. There is a large chunk of the upper part of the bow missing which disguises its initial shape and position. The surface is also markedly corroded.

County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small copper alloy ingot of uncertain dating, possibly a rod ingot of Roman date, c. AD 100-410. The object is tongue shaped, rectangular with a rounded end and one slightly more squared end. It is rectangular in section. There are faint striations visible on the metal, which may suggest hammering has taken place across the surface. It is similar to other examples of ingots from the Roman (and to an extent the Early Medieval) period, including LON-D4EB08, WMID-0B0D27 and LIN-A513B2. Measurements: 49.5mm length, 11.1mm width, 5.7mm thickness, weight 19.41g.

A small assemblage of flint artefacts dating from the Neolithic period, c. 3000-2000 BC. The assemblage is comprised of two core chunks, a fragment of debitage, and a small blade. The two core fragments and the scraper are both secondary flakes with large areas of whitish cortex remaining. The core chunks are formed of a mid-dark grey flint, with large areas of lighter patinisation visible on the interior surface. The debitage fragment is almost translucent and pale grey in colour. The blade is a tertiary flake, largely covered in a distinctly whitened patina. It is recta…

A fragment of a medieval to post medieval ceramic ridge tile dating to 1350-1650. The fabric is very coarse, red/pink with a dark grey core in places and with crushed shell and large sooty black inclusions in addition to gravel temper. The underside is convex where it would lie on the ridge itself, with an angular crest (four-sided pyramid) as its apex. This fragment comprises the end piece of the ridge as it has a closed side which is solid for display. It is unglazed and there are no signs of knife slash marks present. There are possible letters or designs on the outer facing p…

A complete copper alloy nail dating to the medieval period, c. AD 1300-1600. The nail shaft is cylindrical while the head is damaged but appears pointed oval in shape and flattened in section. The shaft is formed from a curved single sheet of copper alloy which tapers to its sharpened point, forming a subtle cone. Comparable examples can be found in KENT-C65D77, SUSS-8B93A5, WILT-6FB182 and NMS-BODBE7. Measurements: 33.5mm length, 17.9mm width, 8.4mm thickness, weight 4.25g.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete early medieval zoomorphic buckle dating to the 10th-11th centuries AD. The majority of the buckle frame is missing, only the decorative zoomorphic terminal and a hint of the buckle loop survives. The loop would have been D-shaped and single looped from its surviving elements. The zoomorphic terminal is in the Ringerike style, taking the form of a beast with large almond shaped eyes and pointed snout, possibly vulpine. There are traces of ears which are pinned back against the beast's head. There is a shallow hollow on the reverse, under the animal's jaw. T…

An incomplete medieval or early post medieval copper-alloy rove dating to the period c. AD 1400 - 1600. The rove survives, but the rivet is now missing, as demonstrated by the gaping aperture in the centre of the rove. There is also damage to the side of the rove which interrupts the original rounded shape of the upper part of the fitting. There is a cylindrical shaft emanating from below the head and the damage has exposed the central channel of this. It is extremely thick and robust in form, suggesting it was used in an area of high wear. Rove and rivet fittings are known from …

Object type: FURNITURE FITTING
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy post medieval possible furniture fitting, dating to AD 1700-1800. The object is formed of rectangular plate with rounded corners, in the centre of which is a circular aperture. Attached to this are two extending arms which rise and flare away from the plate, with rounded terminals which nonetheless remained flattened in section. At first glimpse this object was assumed to be a form of swivel or strap fitting, but on closer inspection it seems more likely to be related to forms of post medieval furniture fitting such as SWYOR-461949, which has a ver…

An incomplete copper alloy late medieval to early post medieval swivel, likely from a leash, dating to c. AD 1400 to 1600. The object comprises the upper part of the lower D-shaped ring of the swivel, with its broad pointed oval shaped plate and small stubs where the ring would once haave extended. This has an aperture in the centre where it would once have been attached to the next element of the connecting piece. For a more complete version, see DEV-46E2DC and NLM-B4D3B5, which has other elements surviving. For a very similar version with extensive discussion, compare the…
