A curving copper-alloy strip of consistent width, riveted at one end to another fragment of a thinner, undecorated band. The object may be of Roman date, but is too incomplete to be certain. The upper surface is incised with two thin strips of false spiral decoration, these fading out quickly after the rivet at one end and continuing to the break point at the other. The opposite side features a central concave line.

County: Oldham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An unidentified lead object of sub rectangular shape, uniface, the lower side flat and unornamented and the upper side with three large raised domes arranged linearly. Its purpose and age are unclear, although it is possible the object is designed to represent a peasecod. One end of the object is smoothly rounded, whilst the other is rounded until coming to a slight point at one corner. This corner may have been pierced, and there may have been a corresponding hole through the object at the opposite corner. The object is a smooth grey colour, with brown patches.

A Post-Medieval copper alloy pastry jigger, possibly dating from c. AD 1700 to 1800. The item consists of a handle, with a curved, serrated tool at the other end.

A cast copper-alloy Roman brooch, possibly 1st century AD decorated with incised or indented geometric designs. The catchplate, pin and the hinge are now missing.

This flattened area is decorated with a raised triangle that is met on its right side by an arrow shaped indentation. The spine of the stem is decorated with two indented linear areas, each of which contains a geometric zigzag that meet slightly below the head and continue as one down the stem. Ther…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An Iron Age cast linch pin of copper alloy, roughly of 1st century BC-1st century AD date, similar to examples WMID720 and WAW-CEE943 in form on the database. The object is clearly broken and now consists only of the bulbous central section and the flattened disc-like head. oriented vertically and attached to the main body by a flaring neck. The inner part of the disc appears to have been decorated, but this has been corroded to illegibility. The main body is hollow. Linch pins like this one would have been used to secure the wheels of a chariot to the axle upon which they rotate. W…

County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of copper-alloy vessel, probably dating from 1400-1800. The fragment represents part of the rim of a vessel, with a very thin wall terminating in a slightly rounded top tapering to the rim. It is roughly triangular in plan. The curve of the fragment is very shallow, suggesting that the fragment is from a relatively large vessel. The outer surface is rough; it is possible the vessel is unfinished or that the vessel was heated enough to cause the lead to leach out of the surface. The internal surface is noticeably smoother. The inside is heavily patinated dark green. The ou…

A steelyard weight, possibly Roman, of lead with an iron core to probably aid in suspension. The object is bell-shaped, flared at the base but solid, the iron central section projecting at the top.

The object is covered evenly in white and beige lead corrosion products, except for a large gash that may have been cause by ploughstrike.

Object type: MINIATURE OBJECT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy uniface miniature Roman dagger, probably intended as a votive object. The object appears complete from blade to pommel, but is slightly distorted and forms a slow curve to the right when viewed from the upper, detailed side. The miniaturisation of objects is a common occurence in the Romano-British world, although Keirnan (2009) questions whether this shrinking takes place for economic reasons (of not wanting to destroy or waste a fully functioning object) or whether the act of rendering something in miniature itself is part of the ritual process.
