Object type: FLAT AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy Early Bronze Age flat axehead, possibly of the Migdale tradition. The axehead is flat on both faces, and both faces show signs of re-sharpening at the blade end. One face has a scar running roughly diagonally across the axehead; this may be a casting mark, or possibly occurs due to later damage. The blade is crescentic in shape. In profile, the butt end of the axe is rectangular with rounded edges. It is not clear if there is a break at the butt end (now worn very smooth), however it is likely that the original overall length was at least a little longer in order for it…

Object type: AMPHORA
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Torbay
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of Roman amphora handle. Amphorae were sturdy pottery vessels which were used to transport and store foods such as olives, oil, and fish sauce. This handle fragment is flat, with two grooves running down the outside face. The fabric is pale buff in colour, with very few inclusions. The whole surface has been water-worn by the sea. Although it is difficult to tell from this worn fragment, it is possible that the amphora was of the Dressel 28 type (also known as Peacock and Williams Class 31). The Dressel 28 type of amphora, dating to the first half of the 2nd Century AD, was wi…

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Elaborate quatrefoil-shaped horse harness pendant. It is cast and made of copper alloy. The suspension loop is complete giving a total length of 40mm. This harness pendant appears to be armorial and possibly shows a lion passant guardant on a black (Sable) square field with red (Gules) fleur de lis springing from each side. It is in fair condition, although the decoration is worn. It is very similar to an example from Reepham in Norfolk (Ashley, 2002). This type of horse furniture dates to the medieval period and this example is probably 14th century. Ref. Ashley, S., 2002, Medieval Ar…

Small cast copper alloy Roman brooch. It is T-shaped, with short wings. Attached to each end of the wing is a small lug, which the spring would have fixed to (now lost).

Cast copper alloy brooch. It comprises a disc or plate 25mm in diameter surrounded by seven projections or lugs (another is lost).The centre of the disc has four arms that curve towards the outer edge. The outer edge has a raised band 1mm wide. The reverse is plain and has the remains of the hinged pin and attachment at one edge.

Cast copper alloy seal matrix, circular and in perfect condition. It has a hexagonal cross-section handle with a trefoil suspension loop surmounted by circular loop.
