Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
One half of a very worn Medieval copper alloy flat pointed-oval seal matrix. Only half remains and the break is very straight, indented from both sides and worn suggesting it was cut. While indents suggest there was a central design, possibly a standing figure or animal, and legend, it is too worn to identify what this was. On the back there is the remains of a worn lug at the remaining point, presumably the top of the matrix. The piece is 21.2mm long, 20.4mm wide and 4.5mm thick excluding the lug, 5.7mm including it and weighs 5.69g. The general form suggests a date of c.AD 1150-135…
