Incomplete cast copper alloy purse bar. The perforated shield-shaped central block is decorated with a lattice pattern on one side and a rudimentary scallop-shell pattern on the other. The side bars are circular in section and gripped by stylised animals' heads at their junction with the central block. The upper surface and sides of the side bars are decorated with a lattice pattern. Microscopic observation suggests that the decorative motifs on both the central block and the side bars are inlaid with niello. The ends of both bars are missing beyond the first perforation of the attachm…

Object type: KEY (LOCKING)
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Cast copper alloy rotary key. The angles of the lozenge-shaped bow are embellished with lugs. The collar between the bow and stem consists of two three mouldings. The octagonal-sectioned stem widens towards the bit. The solid stem is bored at the end to form an off-centre conical socket (depth of socket 24mm, maximum diameter of socket 5mm). The bit is preferentially worn on one side and is cut by one longitudinal and two transverse clefts. Probably fourteenth to fifteenth century in date. An example of Ward Perkins Type VI (1940, 140-141, fig.42, pl. XXIX). Length of key 82.5mm, lengt…

Two piece strap-end with a hinged copper alloy sheet plate and cast copper alloy loop. The undecorated plate is perforated by three copper alloy rivets, two set in the corners furthest from the hinge and one in the centre. The semi-circular loop has a flat back and a central hole (diameter 3mm). It is decorated with a series of punched dot motifs crudely arranged into rows. The central part of the loop is slightly recessed and relatively free of the punched decoration. The end of the loop is furnished with a terminal perforated (diameter 3mm) in the opposite plane to the perforation of…

Part of a copper alloy purse frame with a cast copper alloy rotating suspension loop fixed to the horizontal bar by a rove. Both arms of the short, sub-rectangular sectioned horizontal bar are broken close to the rectangular-shaped central boss. The elongated suspension loop is plano-convex in section with the flat side facing inwards. One side of the central boss is decorated with two diagonal moulded lines arranged to form a "V" shape (cf. Ward Perkins 1967, fig.52.B1). Probably late fifteenth to mid sixteenth century in date. Type B1 (Ward Perkins 1967, 167-168, fig.52). Lengt…

Fragment of a lead, or lead alloy (pewter), spoon handle. The terminal is decorated with a set of double concentric ring and dot motifs. Enough of the terminal remains to suggest that it was of the dog-nose form typical of the eighteenth century. Length (minimum) 37mm, width (maximum) 26mm, thickness 3mm, weight 12.3 grams.

Object type: SOCKETED AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Fragment of a cast late Bronze Age probably bronze socketed axe with a splayed and curved blade. The fragment was apparently broken and distorted in antiquity. Microscopic examination suggests the fragment is encrusted with ferrous and manganese oxide corrosion products presumably derived from the burial environment. Original blade width c.51mm, surviving height of fragment 40.5mm, maximum surviving thickness 13.5mm, weight 66.2 grams. Unfortunately, the fragment is not large enough to determine the specific type of the socketed axe. Socketed axes are a Late Bronze Age type and t…

Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Copper alloy spearhead, tanged, of Type 1B Curved Midrib (following Davis 2012, 33f.) and dating to the Arreton phase of the Early Bronze Age (c.1700-1500 cal. BC) (Needham et al. 1997). The spearhead survives in two pieces, broken across the blade-tang junction. It has a long triangular blade bevelled at the edge, with a rounded midrib and (blade wings with) two distinct steps parallel to the edge of the blade. The central mid-rib is filled, on both sides, with rows of pointille (punched dot) decoration. The tip of the blade is missing and the blade edges are damaged. The junction…

Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Early mid-rib palstave - unlooped with a slight single median rib along each face. The rib is not defined by hollows near the stop, as on some early palstaves. The blade is relatively narrow but has a deeply curved edge. The flanges are leaf-shaped and do not extend along the blade. The stop ridge is undeveloped and is only marginally higher than the surface of the blade. The stop is concave with a shallow 'V' shaped profile. Casting problems have led to damage around the butt resulting in a 'V' shaped intrusion, which should not have effected the usefulness of the axe. The casting sea…

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…

Broad period: ROMAN
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Irregular discoidal perforated stone. Diameter 22.5-24mm, thickness 12mm, internal diameter 5.5mm, weight 8.9 grams. The slightly irregular form of this example suggests that an identification as a spindle whorl may be somewhat problematic and this perforated stone could have been used as a fishing or net weight (cf. Manning et al. 1995, 251).

Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Circular lead, or lead alloy, non-heraldic personal seal matrix, diameter 28mm, thickness 3mm, weight 19.3 grams. The surface condition is poor, despite cleaning, however it appears that the design consists of a central motif of a bird looking backwards with a circumscribing legend, apparently consisting of both Roman capitals and Lombardic letter forms which reads: S' .ANA..he. The loop on the back of the matrix is slightly distorted. Dating of the matrix is difficult because of the poor condition and the difficulties in reading its legend; however, it is probably not unreasonable to …
