Record ID: SOM-372D02
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Unidentified iron object. The small object is very similar to an early Roman brooch in form, with a 'T' shaped head, and curved body. However, the foot is formed where the end of the object is rolled inwards, almost in a spiral. There is no sign of a catchplate or similar. This, and the fact that the object is made from iron, suggest that it is unlikely to be a brooch of this date, despite the other similarities. However, due to heavy errosion it is difficult to see any features of the object apart from its basic form, making it difficult to identify it further. Length: 33.1mm, Wid…

Part of an unidentified iron (coated with copper alloy) object. It consists of a long bar, circular in profile, which goes upwards slightly at the very tip before culminating in a teardrop section, which extends downwards at a slight angle. Through this section is a very regular circular hole. The upper half of the other end appears to have attached to something else. Close to this break an integral, roughly semi-circular, loop extends downwards. The metal is brownish-red in colour with a few small patches of greenish copper alloy in places on the surface. A similar object can also …

Treasure case 2009 T141. Decorative silver arrow head terminal, made from thin silver sheet and therefore a purely decorative element from some larger ensemble. Perhaps the arrow attribute of a silver figure of a saint such as St Michael? Late medieval or early modern, perhaps 16th Century. As such, due to its age and precious metal content, this object qualifies as Treasure under the stipulations of the Treasure Act 1996.

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small fragment of copper-alloy, possibly from an axe or similar implement. The fragment is wedge shaped, with a sharp, rounded edge on one side and straight, rough, blunt edges on all other sides, suggesting that it has indeed broken away from a larger object, which may well have been an axe. However, beyond such suggestions, its small size makes it impossible to draw any definite conclusions about what this object may have been and to what period it dates from. Length: 18.50mm, Width: 7.87mm, Thickness: 3.46mm Weight: 1.50g

Unidentified copper alloy object, with tinned outer surface. The object is roughly ‘V’ shaped, with two ‘arms’ extending upwards. At the base of these is a break. The object is slightly concave below and convex above. It has a rounded ridge running along the edge of the inner part of the upper surface. Below this and just above the break is a small oval groove containing three dots and a little line. The metal is in poor condition, with brown and green pitted sections in places.

Treasure case 2010 T277: Not Treasure, returned to finder A small incomplete gold ingot of uncertain date. The object is sub-rectangular in shape, though crudely formed. It is rounded at one end, with a rough break at the other. It survives in fairly good condition apart from a few scratch marks on each face. B ecause of its undiagnostic nature, the find cannot be securely dated to pre-1710 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996.

A cast copper-alloy mount or brooch in the shape of a horse and rider going right with an integral attachment on the back. The horse's head is short, only ears and nose detail are clear. The legs are now incomplete due to an old break. The tail can be distinguished from the body and it hangs parallel to the back of the horse. The rider is wearing a helmet or hat with a brim which comes to a rounded point at the top and a long cloak or coat which flows over the back of the horse. The rider's arm, which stops at the neck of the horse, and bent leg are both clear details. The back is fl…

Roman or Post Medieval cast copper alloy circular mount. The mount has a raised border and inner circle both emphasised with an incised line running around their inner side with a concave border between them. Within the inner circle the mount rises gradually at first then more abruptly to a domed centre. The back is plain but rough and concave with the deepest point in the centre. The edges are damaged at several points with old breaks that have distorted the shape slightly. There is no evidence of attachments. It is 36.4mm in diameter and 7.4mm thick, 1.4mm thick at the edge and weig…

Lump of solidified melted copper alloy material from of high temperature working. The lump has numerous solidified air bubbles suggesting it was brought to a full molten heat. However in less fully melted sections their appears to be the remains of circular copper alloy disks which were melted to create the lump. The designs on the disks are not clear. Most are only visible in the sides as the remains of stacks but a few could be measured and range from 13.8 to 11.2mm in diameter and are 1.0 to 1.2mm thick. The lump is 46.4mm by 32.7mm by 18.1mm and weighs 52.91 grams. It is clea…

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete, cast lead alloy spindle whorl. The spindle whorl is flattened biconical with a broad central ridge around the centre. The hole through the object is large (11.6mm diameter) and off-centre. The spindle whorl has a small break on one edge due to the metal corroding and laminating. The diameter of the spindle whorl is 26.6, and it is 14.3mm thick and weighs 31.02g. Plain spindle whorls and weights were cast locally in lead from the Roman period onwards and are hard to date precisely although most are late Medieval - Post Medieval.

A lead item formed of two truncated biconical elements attached together, both flat at the top. A median ridge on the exterior is visible, filed down in places. A large circular hole at a slight angle travels through the centre of the object measuring up to 14.9mm in diameter. The surface colour of this object is greyer than white suggesting a relatively recent date, although an earlier date cannot be ruled out entirely.
