40 pieces of lead of various forms. Given the context they came from they are certainly Roman. They appear a mix with some which may allude to casting. Others appear to be for vessel repair and it is possible all the pieces were used or gathered for this purpose. 5 are off-cuts of sheet lead, all show evidence of neat straight cuts on at least one edge and are 1-1.5mm thick. 1 has the distinct cross section of a vessel repair with expanded faces sandwiching a thinner joining section The larger pot mend is 57.3 by 35.1 by a maximum of 12.9mm thick and has repaired a vessel about 3.8mm…

The surface slip is mostly lost but where it remains it appears to be a dark red with any satin finish lost.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Post-Medieval gilded copper alloy openwork mount, probably dating to c. AD 1600-1700. The mount is circular in plan, with a cusped outer edge and openwork voids defining an equal armed cross with a narrower arm in each angle,. The arms of the cross extend slightly beyond the cusped border, whilst a small knop projects from the interstice of the cusps in each angle, in line with the narrower arms. The arms meet at the centre in what is probably a flower or rose, with a central pellet. The overall effect of the mount is a double rose, although it is too abraded to be certain. Two integ…

A single flake of knapped flint of uncertain date. A secondary flake of mottled grey flint, with two small areas of surviving sandy, beige cortex at the proximal and distal ends, covering c. 15-20%. The striking platform is no longer present, although there is the suggestion of a large bulb of percussion. Sub-parallel removal scars are present on the dorsal face, struck from the same direction as the overall removal. In addition, struck from around 45 degrees to the others and cutting through the cortex, are three, small, parallel low angle removal scars, with this edge shows signs of …

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Three flakes of Chert debitage, of probable Later Neolithic or Bronze Age date. All three flakes are of a gritty, brown chert, with two being secondary, and the third tertiary. This latter flake has a single much more heavily patinated removal scar, suggesting the reuse of earlier material. All of the flakes exhibit relatively irregular flake-like removals, on one flake (tertiary) clearly struck from multiple directions. Although the nature of the chert ensures that the bulbs of percussion are relatively diffuse, where they survive there is no small 'lip' below the striking platform th…
