County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy decorative fitting of uncertain function and date The fitting is fragmentary, missing the apex (with a surviving length of 18.3mm and a weight of 10.6g). The circular base is complete (with a diameter of 20.6mm and a thickness of 1.1mm) and has a narrowed rim, enhanced with crimped marks, now mostly lost. Above the rim, the fitting widens (to a maximum diameter of 22.2mm) before narrowing below the break (where the fitting has a diameter of 9.8mm). The fitting is decorated near the base with repeating semicircular mouldings. The interior is as-cast. The surface has a d…

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…

Lead weight of uncertain date, probably medieval to post medieval The lead weight is of suspension type with an integral loop at the apex and is complete (with a length of 40.1mm). The loop is rectangular-sectioned (4.4mm thick and 13.3mm long) with a central, circular perforation (5.8mm diameter) and is now slightly distorted. The body of the weight is sub-circular with straight sides, diverging towards the base (with a minimum diameter of 11.7mm and a maximum of 19.8mm). The base is flat and has four perforations, which appear to emerge on the sides, above the base. These may h…

Copper alloy pan-weight of uncertain date The weight is circular and is rectangular sectioned (with a diameter of 15.5mm and a thickness of 3.3mm). The face is decorated a concentric ring and inner depression, possibly turned. The reverse is flat and has three punched indentations, possibly in a triangular arrangement. The surface has a mid-green patina with file marks evident on the underside. The weight now weighs 2.92g, equivalent to 0.103 ounce and it is possible that the weight was a one-eighth ounce weight under the Mercantile, Avoirdupois or Tower systems (equivalent to 3…

Object type: TAG
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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.

Copper alloy bar ingot of uncertain date The ingot is of consistent sub-rectangular form (with a length of 34.9mm, a maximum width of 16.9mm, a maximum thickness of 9.5mm and a weight of 31.2g). The ends are irregular but it is now unclear whether they have broken more recently. The upper face has been hammered with transverse lines forming grooves. The reverse face has a small number of weaker punched linear marks. The surface has a dark-brown patina with areas bright-green corrosion.

Copper alloy decorative terminal, possibly from a pin of Roman date The object is fragmentary, represented by the damaged terminal; a shaft fragment (with a surviving length of 33.4mm and a weight of 3.4g). The top of the terminal was conical (with a basal diameter of 7.0mm) and is heavily corroded, with a differential corrosion, beneath which the terminal is of faceted-globular form before a moulding above the top of the shaft. The shaft is circular sectioned and gradually widens (from a diameter of 2.8mm to 5.0mm) before narrowing slightly towards the break. The surface has a d…

Copper alloy blade, probably a blade edge fragment from a Bronze Age axe of indeterminate type and date The axe is fragmentary, represented by the blade edge only (with a width of 46.5mm, a surviving length of 12.8mm, a maximum surviving thickness of 6.7mm and a weight of 9.6g). The break occurred in antiquity and there is no socket base evident. The blade is convex between the tips and the blade edge is asymmetric, possibly through wear at one end. There are a number of nicks along the blade edge, however it is unclear whether these are contemporary with the use of the axe or occurr…

Stone button of uncertain date The button is sub-circular in plan and pointed oval in section (with a diameter of 14.5mm - 16.0mm, a thickness of 5.5mm and a weight of 2.4g) and appears to be made of a fine-grained black shale. Both faces are convex and have been polished to achieve the form. One face has two small parallel holes (of c. 0.8mm diameter) drilled through, from just above the edges. The line of the channels has been crudely scored into the surface above each channel. No other decoration is evident. The surface is abraded chipped. The 'button' is unusual and is difficult …

Object type: PERFORATED OBJECT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Discoidal perforated stone. Diameter 24mm, thickness 14mm, internal diameter 5mm, weight 12.5 grams. Although conventionally identified as spindle whorls, perforated stone weights like this example could have been used for other functions such as fishing or net weights (Manning et al. 1995, 251). Roman spindle whorls are usually made from sherds of pottery; however, examples made from lead, brass coins, jet, bone and stone are also known (cf. Wheeler 1930, 106-107; Manning et al. 1995). A close parallel is recorded from Roman Aldborough (Bishop 1996, 32, no.173, fig.17); however, alth…
