Object type: HORSESHOE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Wakefield
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete iron possible horseshoe of post-Medieval or Modern date, about AD 1600 - 1950. Most of one side is missing. Corrosion obscures any nail holes or fuller, and there is a suggestion of a toe clip, but it is not complete. There is no calkin on the surviving terminal, which is pointed. The web of the horseshoe is uniformally narrow at about 18mm wide. With the lack of evidence for attachmnt, it is possible that this object is part of another artefact such as a chain link, hook or farm machinery part. The object is 117mm long, 98mm wide and 12mm thick. 137.2g.
