Object type: STYLUS
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Northumberland
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy stylus of probable Roman date (c.AD43-410). The object comprises a cast rectangular section rod, expanding from a worn and blunt tip to a broader flattened spatulate end. Dimensions: Numerous possible styli are recorded on the PAS database (see for example: NMGW-9D99C5, YORYM-29869E, and NLM-071070). The simple form (lacking decoration) and incomplete nature of this stylus leaves few diagnostic features that would allow more precise dating. However, the spatulate terminal (eraser) is indicative of a stylus.

Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy token of uncertain date, possibly medieval (c.AD1000-1500).

Dimensions: Thickness: 2.89 mm; Weight: 1.9 g; Diameter: 13.02 mm The possibility that the token could be an Iron age potin was investigated; however, it does not conform to any known type and is very different in appearance. As such it is more likely that the object is some form of medieval token, of a type not yet definitively ide…
