Record ID: DEV-AEDD76
Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: City of Plymouth
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper alloy palstave of South Western type dating to the Taunton/Penard phase (c. 1400 - 1100 BC). The palstave is in good condition, with the copper alloy surface faded to a dark brown-ish orange with small patches of green patinisation and even smaller patches where the original shiny golden colour of the copper alloy persists. This survival, even to a small extent, is probably due to its deposition in a semi-waterlogged context. The butt is broad and the septum is relatively thick at 9.7mm. On either side of the septem the outer edges gradually rise upwards, creating a symm…

A complete medieval to post medieval writing lead or early form of lead pencil, dating to c. 1400 to 1600 AD. The pencil is rectangular in cross section with rounded corners, and tapers to a sharp triangular point used for writing. At the opposite end the rectangle becomes more flattened, before flaring outwards to form a fishtail shape, with a notched V between two triangular terminals. At the midpoint of the shaft of the pencil are two slender inscribed lines which ring it. LVPL-DFE099 has a similar flared end, but lacks the distinctive v-shaped form of the terminal. NMS-1DF422 is …

An incomplete copper alloy possible livery badge, strap mount or belt fitting of probable Later Medieval to Post-Medieval date, c. AD 1400-1800. The object is formed in the shape of an arrowhead of possibly a variation on a cross. It has a long shank, which is broken at its terminal end, although the remains of a voided area survive in the form of a single slender stem which is incorporated into the shank itself, and would probably have been paralleled on the other side. The shank narrows slightly before broadening into wide horizontal barbs with rounded ends. From the end of the barb…

A complete Iron Age cast copper alloy vessel mount in the form of a boar or pig, dating to c. 50 BC to 100 AD.

A group of six fragments from three different ceramic vessels dating to the Roman period, c. AD 110. All six fragments are high fired orange coloured Samian ware, however they are clearly from different vessels. No remains of complex decoration survive on any fragment, suggesting that they were all from plainware vessels. Four fragments have been restored by the finder to form most of the base and approximately 50% of the body of a single vessel. They demonstrate a consistent firing environment, and are formed of a bright orange fabric with sparse and small micaceous inclusions, typi…

An incomplete cast copper alloy palstave of South Western type dating from the Taunton phase (c.1400-1275 BC) of the Middle Bronze Age.

A medieval Burgandian silver double patard of Charles the Bold (Duke of Burgundy, AD1467-1477) dated to AD 1467-1477. In 1469, following an agreement made between Edward IV and Charles the Bold, these coins were made legal tender in England and remained so for over 60 years afterwards; they crop up in hoards (in steadily declining numbers) until well into Henry VIII's reign. The Burgundian rulers were seen as friends of the English and this is the main reason that this type of foreign coin was allowed to circulate here. The metal is not quite sterling value, so although they were the …
