Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete post medieval glass bottle dating to the period c. AD 1750 - 1850. The bottle consists of the collar, the neck and a small portion of the shoulders. The collar is irregularly shpaed and has been rolled over and pinched to form an irregular triangular cross-section. The neck of the bottle exhibits a series of diagonal striations in the glass which would have been caused during the manufacturing process. The neck expands into the shoulders which terminate in an old break. The remaining portion of the shoulders suggests that the bottle would have been relatively straight-si…

A cast copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount of late early-medieval to medieval date (c. late 11th century AD). This tapering pear-shaped mount can be classified as a Williams Class A, Type 10A mount, based on its decoration in the English Urnes style. It is solid, of a hollow convex form with a common right angle flange at its base (Type A, Williams 1997, 25), solid and offset at the sides.The base of the mount's front has been perforated twice, with the two iron rivets surviving corroded in situ. Opposite the base is the rounded apex loop which similarly retains an iron rivet corroded…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy late Medieval or early Post-Medieval sewing ring. The ring has fairly straight sides, angled outwards and slightly more flared towards the base. The base has a thick, slightly projecting rim around the outside. This, together with the thick walls and the absence of any folds around the base, suggests that the object is cast rather than stamped. The indentations are arranged in concentric circles, and appear to be made by hand, as most are slightly deeper on the upper side. It survives in good condition, but is fairly worn and a few holes have appeared where the indentation…

Copper alloy late Medieval or early Post-Medieval sewing ring. The ring has misshapen sides, which are roughly angled so that the base is slightly wider than the top. The method of manufacture is difficult to determine. However, the short size and thick walls, with the absence of any folds around the rim, suggests that it may have been produced through casting rather than stamping or hammering, though Holmes (1999, p.1) points out that the two methods are often very difficult to tell apart. The indentations are arranged in concentric circles, and appear to be made by hand, as most are …

Incomplete copper alloy mount of Post-Medieval date. The mount is ovoid in shape, rounded to the front and concave to the reverse. The wider end terminates in a small, slightly pointed knop. The other end tapers slightly to a break. Here an unknown portion of the mount is missing and there is a large crack running from this through the top of the main body. There are no visible signs of attachment. It is similar in design to a number of sword belt fittings shown in Read (2001, p.42) and also in shape to several flat belt fittings that he illustrates (ibid. p.34). He dates all to the 17…

Complete copper alloy two-piece button of Medieval to Post-Medieval date. The button is solid and biconvex in shape. A few tiny traces of gilding remain around the shank on the reverse and on the upper surface. The shank consists of a separate loop of drawn copper alloy wire embedded into the button on the reverse. Read (2005) shows several similar examples on pp.21-23, all of which he dates to c. late 13th to c. mid 14th century, although he points out that this style continued in use into the early Post-Medieval period.

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete copper alloy late Medieval to early Post-Medieval buckle frame. The frame takes the form of a five petalled flower. Each petal has bevelled inner and outer edges and a small groove between it and the next one. The upper surface may be decorated with multiple incised transverse lines, but these are difficult to make out because of erosion. The reverse is flat and undecorated. There is a thin central bar. The pin is missing and orange erosion around one end of the bar suggests that it was probably iron. Whitehead (2003, p.47) dates these buckles to c.1450-1550. Length: 25.…

Incomplete copper alloy Medieval rectangular buckle frame. One of the shorter sides is wider than the other and has a transverse groove on the outer edge and a notched pin rest on its upper face. The longer sides are flanged, becoming deeper towards one end. These deeper sections have drilled holes on both sides, which would have held a separate spindle. This is now missing, as is the pin. Three similar examples shown in Whitehead (2003, p.89, no.552-554) have an arm extending from a separate central bar that curves around beyond the frame and would have locked in place using the trans…
