Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Monmouthshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy mount of uncertain date, possibly Roman The mount is incomplete, broken as it narrows to a shaft (with a surviving length of 11.0mm and a weight of 16.0g). The top face is circular (with a diameter of 22.3mm) and has a slight raised border (0.5mm high). At the centre of the face is an irregular ring (5.8mm diameter) with a crude, off-centre cell. No evidence of enamel is evident within either recessed area. A diagonal chord cuts the face, possibly a casting seam. The underside narrows to the break (where it has a diameter of 9.5mm) and is enhanced with a single incised g

Copper alloy anthropomorphic terminal of uncertain date The terminal is in the form of a human head and has broken across the neck (with a surviving length of 18.6mm, a maximum width of 8.6mm, a maximum thickness of 10.4mm and a weight of 7.5g). The terminal is heavily-corroded and the corrosion has removed much of the detail, there are depressions depicting the eyes and a central ridge is evident indicating the position of the nose. Another depression surviving on one side only is likely to depict a ear. The surviving form and style would indicate a comparatively naturalistic de…

Copper alloy decorative mount of uncertain date, possibly post medieval, c. 16th or 17th century The mount is of open-work zoomorphic form, cast in the round and is incomplete (with a surviving length of 33.6mm, a maximum thickness of 4.7mm and a weight of 7.4g). The mount depicts a long-necked bird, possibly standing in a nest at the base of the mount. The bird has its head within the nest and may be feeding its young and a downwards-turned tail (giving a maximum width of 22.0mm). Incised linear grooves defined the detail of the nest and bird's wings but corrosion and wear has rem…

Stone spindle-whorl of uncertain date, Roman to early Post Medieval, c. 100 - 1700 The spindle-whorl is comparatively regular and circular (of 35.8 - 37.4mm diameter and weighing 27.8g) is made from a fine-grained, micaeous sandstone, now with ground surfaces. The spindle-whorl is of sub-rectangular section (13.9mm thick) with near-flat faces. The perforation is central and is circular (7.4mm diameter) with straight parallel sides. There is no surviving evidence of applied decoration to the surfaces. Margeson (1993, page 184)[1] has suggested that the weight of a spindle who…

Copper alloy looped mount, probably of Roman date The cast mount comprises a sub-circular loop on an integral domed base (with an overall length of 40.3mm and a weight of 38.3g). The loop (35.1mm wide x28.6mm high external and 23.9mm wide and 20.2mm high internal) is circular sectioned (5 - 6mm diameter) and is undecorated. There is a slight suggestion of wear facets on the interior of the top of the loop, which if correct, would seem to suggest strap-rubbing. The base is circular and hemispherical (with a basal diameter of 26.2mm and a height of 11mm) and has a grooved border ar…

Copper alloy casting jet of uncertain date, possibly Bronze Age The jet appears to be complete, comprising two-runners and with a sub-rectangular reservoir (36.0mm x 16.9mm), which is of D-shaped sectioned (with a weight of 24.8g). The top surface is flat, with few of the undulations usually observed as the molten metal cooled. The sides generally converge towards the runners although the wider runner is adjacent to one side. The runners are sub-circular and are irregular (with a surviving length of 17.0mm and 12.0mm), possibly suggesting use of a clay gate. The surface has a dar…

The jet appears to be complete, comprising a single-runner with sub-oval reservoir (with a length of 22.2mm, a width of 19.1mm and a weight of 16.8g). The top surface is concave, irregular from the cooling molten metal. The sides converge towards the runner and are also irregular, possibly suggesting use of a clay gate. The runner is of irregular sub-oval section (with a surviving length of 21.5mm and 8.5mm x 8.0mm) and has is narrower beneath the reservoir, possibly through corrosion. The surface has a dark-green to brown patina with areas of mid-green corrosion. The jet has few d…

Copper alloy fitting of uncertain date and function The fitting is of rod from and is complete (with a length of 65.1mm and a weight of 7.9g). The implement is of circular section (4.0mm diameter at the apex, widening to 4.8mm) before a rectangular-sectioned and tapering 'plug' at the terminal (15mm long and 4.4mm x 5.4mm, tapering to 2.9mm x 4.5mm) with a flat end. The other end has a small oval perforation (4mm from the end), presumably for securing or suspending it. No decoration is evident on the fitting. The surface has pale to mid-green patina.

Possible post medieval lead hooked tag of 18th century date The hooked tag is incomplete and distorted, missing the hook (with a surviving length of 21.1mm and a weight of 3.0g). The tag had a rectangular attachment loop at one end, now distorted. At the centre is a circular boss (4.0mm diameter) with cast decoration comprising a raised concentric knurled ring, inside of which are five raised ring-and-dot motifs at the centre. At the base is the stub of the presumed hook, now missing. Iron wire appears to have been contained within the lead and has corroded on to the surface in areas.
