Copper-alloy leg from a medieval or post-medieval cooking vessel, perhaps a cauldron or skillet. This is a short rectangular-sectioned leg with a bevelled base resulting in the bottom of the leg forming a narrow edge. The leg has broken at the junction with the body of the vessel, and rises to become expanded, with a concave upper surface. The patina and corrosion of the fragment suggests burning, as would be expected with a cooking vessel.

Record ID: NMGW-3FD605
Object type: BULLA
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Incomplete papal bulla, probably dating to the 13th century. The bulla has broken along the centre, at the point where the cord passed through. The obverse is of the standard form, depicting the bearded head of Saint Paul pictured beneath the legend S P A. The reverse is difficult to determine because of the fragmentary nature of the bulla. The top line would appear to end in a rounded letter E, the middle row ends with the letter S, with a vertical or near-vertical stroke preceding the S, possibly an I. The bottom row ends with the characters I I I I. The bulla is in generally good c…

Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Plain ring which is cast from a copper alloy and has a near plano-convex section with its inner edge being flat while its outside consists of a raised central cordon with a distinct medial ridge and short flanged edges. The flanged edges of the ring are badly damaged but show no sign of preferential wear which could be expected of the ring was an item of harness. It is large for a finger ring, having an internal diameter of 21.5mm and an external diameter of 28mm; however, the inside is worn smooth in a manner consistent with the wear on a finger ring which has been removed and replac…

Object type: HARNESS MOUNT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Copper alloy quatrefoil mount which was fixed by four rivets, one set in each corner of the mount. Two of the separately cast copper alloy rivets remain intact. The surface of the mount is quite corroded and only traces of the presumably heraldic enamel design which was applied to it survive. The design apparently consisted of a passant lion on a coloured background which extended to the edges of the mount. Traces of a V-shaped motif rising from the lion's back are visible; however, it is not certain what this motif originally represented. The loss of much of the original surface, comb…

Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Fragment of a cast lead alloy (pewter) pot leg from a vessel such as a skillet, ewer or cauldron. The lower part of the leg and a central ridge survive. Pot legs of this type were used during the medieval and post-medieval periods; however, a close parallel, albeit cast in copper alloy, is provided by pot legs recovered from early sixteenth century deposits in Norwich (Margeson 1993, 93, no.565, fig.58). Length (minimum) 33mm, width 22mm, weight 23.0 grams.

Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Oval, copper alloy (probably bronze) seal matrix with a broken perforated lug for suspension. There is considerable wear or corrosion around the edges of the seal resulting in incomplete letter forms. Dimensions 28 x 15.2mm. The image is of the lamb of God (Agnus dei) with pellets on the body representing the fleece, and a tall cross bearing banner (unclear) which are all symbolic of Christ the sacrificial lamb. The matrix is inscribed S. henrici---na-dis (Lombardic script, with some Roman letters, for example N), reading "The seal of Henry..". The matrix probably dates to the mid or …

Discoidal spindle whorl - stone (sandstone - dark red brown colour). Diameter 34-35mm; diameter of perforation 9mm; thickness (minimum) 10mm; weight 12.9 grams. One face of the spindel whorl is split, possibly by plough damage, and the surviving face is marked by the plough, although this may be a knife mark. Probably either medieval or later in date.

Record ID: NMGW3215
Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Pot mend of a steeply sided vessel, crudely cast. Unusual metal type - microscopic examination suggests that it is a heavily leaded copper alloy which may have a tinned surface. Most pot mends are made from straight lead alloys and that this example has been made from a leaded copper alloy suggests that it may be a mend for a copper alloy vessel rather than a ceramic pot. Close dating is not possible but a medieval or post-medieval date is most likely. Dimensions 100m x 44mm x 4-8mm.

Probably part of a cast copper alloy strap-type box mount. The mount is cast in copper alloy (probably bronze) with a central perforation and what appears to be a tapering terminal or knop but is where the mount has been broken. It is gilded on its upper surface and decorated with four probably white glass, rather than pearl, beads inset into the four corners of the main plate. Microscopic examination suggests that the underside of the mount was not gilded. Length 34mm, width 11mm, thickness 3.5mm, weight 3.9grams. Although it has not been possible to find a close parallel in the arch…

Object type: HARNESS PENDANT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Enamelled, shield-shaped horse harness pendant. Type I (Ward Perkins 1940, 118, fig.38). The pendant is cast in copper alloy (probably bronze) with an integral suspension loop, which is now slightly twisted. It is decorated with a heraldic device of a lion rampant possibly with a double tail on a background of blue enamel. Although ancient enamels can change their colour as a consequence of burial, microscopic study shows that blue was the enamels original colour. Microscopic examination also indicated that the unenamelled surfaces of the pendant were probably gilded. Traces of this p…

Cast copper alloy vessel foot. The foot has a rib on its external surface and tapers to a rounded point. The upper part of the casting is missing. Vessel feet are not uncommon detector finds (Bailey 1997, 36). Although examples which terminate in turned-out bases or paws are the most common type, examples with rounded tips are not unknown. Surviving length 79mm, max width (surviving) 35mm, max surviving thickness 16mm. Fifteenth to seventeenth century probably [i.e. Late Medieval - Early Post-Medieval]. Parallels: Lewis 1978, 36, no.45 (skillet); and Lewis 1978, 32, no.38 (Cauldron)

Copper alloy outer case for a set of nested weights. Circular, with six external vertical ribs on cup and similar projections (poorly preserved) on lid. Maximum external diameter 40mm; internal diameter 36mm; internal depth of cup 17mm; maximum height 24mm. In its present condition (with corrosion around lid) it weighs 96.07g. There is ring-and-dot decoration around the rim top, and it is likely that the missing weights were similarly decorated. Probably fourteenth century in date.
