Fragment of a cast vessel handle or mount. The mount has two drilled attachment holes either side of a gently curved end. The beginning of the possible handle is defined by a low moulding present only on the upper area of the fragment. The handle has a ‘D’ shaped cross section, which becomes narrower as it approaches the broken end.

Object type: LUG (HANDLE)
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Monmouthshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Probable handle fragment of copper alloy of uncertain date and broken at both ends. The piece has three ribs; one central rib and one each side, one of the side ribs is more pronounced than the other two ribs. The fragment begins to expand past the ribbed area and this section seems to be defined by an incised line at each end, and contains punched chevrons and diamonds, possibly originally filled with black enamel. This end possibly has an area with a concave profile, possibly suggesting the recess to take a pin for a hinge.

Sheet copper alloy strip, broken or cut along three of its sides, with one of the ends being bent prior to breaking. The outer complete edge exhibits a slight curvature and suggests the strip may have been curved. The piece is crudely decorated with a series of linear chisel marks forming two lines running along the strip. There is a further more continuous linear depression running along the broken or cut side.

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Carmarthenshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
NMGWPA 2002.92.1 (EF2272) – Flint pebble with central void. A cortical flint pebble of interesting form. The central hole, while appearing man made has a natural cortical skin, suggesting it is a geological phenomenon. The ‘point’ of the object exhibits a number of impact fractures, but there is no evidence of systematic working, ruling out the object as a Prehistoric tool (awl or knife). The flint shows evidence of water rolling. The object was found in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, and was likely to have been picked up on or near the coast. There are concentrations of beach peb…

Lead pan weight of uncertain date The weight is complete (with a length of 18.5mm). Both faces are circular (with a diameter of 14-15mm). The sides are concave, producing a minimum diameter of 12.2mm). One of the faces has the suggestion of an incised design, possibly a star within a circular border. The weight weighs 25.0g, which is equivalent to 0.885oz. The weight is not diagnostic and is difficult to date the weight of 25.0g is broadly consistent with a 1oz weight of Medieval and post medieval systems.
