An incomplete copper alloy possible vessel lid of Post-Medieval date, c.AD 1500 - 1700. The object is formed of a convex scallop-shell shaped body and a flat integral semi-circular projection. The shell-shaped body is mostly rounded but gradually tapers to a point on one edge. It is decorated like a scallop shell with fourteen incised grooves radiating from the point to the opposite rounded edge. The flat integral semi-circular projection is attached to the rounded edge, opposite the point, and is angled upwards. Traces of seven decotarive indentations remain on the outer edge of the s…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a copper alloy mount of Post-Medieval to Modern date, c.AD 1700-2000. The fragment is subrectangular in shape and is formed of cast curvilinear openwork decorative strands. A worn break runs along the length of an elongated three-leaved foliate feature. The stem of this feature cruves back on itself. From between the leaf and its curved stem projects a new stem, which connects to a floral decorative element which consists of a collar of five small circles, a body of three large oval lobes, and a trifurcated head. A third stem projects from the centre of the trifurcated fl…

County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a ceramic vessel dating to the early Bronze Age, c.2,400-1,200 BC. The fragment is sub-rectangular in plan and section. Breaks form all edges of the fragment and no indication of the complete vessel form has survived. The pot fabric is black in colour, indicating that it has been highly reduced, and is soft with frequent quartz inclusions. The outer surface of the fragment is decorated with twisted cord impressions forming two parallel lines with several adjacent thinner lines on either side of them, almost giving the impression of cross-hatching. The indentations are cre…

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete stone spindle whorl of uncertain date. The object is made of a flint. It has been shaped through covering, scaled retouching on one side and the edges. The other side retains its natural, smooth surface until it meets the covering, scaled retuching at the edges. A sub-circular central perforation is present. The end of the perforation on the worked side of the spindle whorl is wider than the end of the perforation on the unworked side, suggesting that the hole was drilled from the worked side. The spindle whorl is undecorated. The spindle whorl is 30.2mm in diameter, 11.6mm…

Object type: MIRROR CASE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper-alloy mirror case of Medieval date, c.AD 1150 - 1450. The case comprises one circular disc with a raised edge, the lid portion of the mirror case. The matching lower portion of the case is lost. The disc has one pierced lug projecting from one edge with a fragmentary copper-alloy rivet still in situ. This is part of the hinge mechanism connecting the lid with the lost base. A slightly hooked lug projects from the opposite edge. This combined with a projection on the lost base, would have formed the catch to close the case. The exterior surface of the lid is decor…

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete stone bead of uncertain date. The bead is oval with a very fine central circular perforation running through its length. The fineness of the perforation could suggest machine manufacture, meaning that the bead would have a Modern date of c.AD 1900-present, although the lack of contextual evidence means that this cannot be stated with any certainty. The stone is black in colour with white, mottled discolouration on its outer surface. Slight fragmentation at the narrow ends of the bead reveal the black core of the stone. Dr. Sarah King, Curator of Natural Science at York Museu…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a copper-alloy Bronze Age socketed axehead (c. 1100 - 800 BC). Only the cutting edge remains. The fragment is sub-rectangular in plan, sub-rectangular in profile, and triangular in section. The fragment is hollow with an internal triangular recess tapering to a point towards the cutting edge. The edges and faces of the axehead fragment are smooth and precise. The break is uneven and runs diagonally down the body of the axehead. Unfortunately not enough remains of the axehead to be able to identify it more precisely or attribute a closer date. The metal has a green patina…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper-alloy strap fitting probably of Medieval to Post-Medieval date, c.AD 1400-1700. The strap or belt fitting is comprised of a band which is rectangular in plan and section with a decorative segment. The band is bent into a narrow U shape with breaks at either end, meaning that it is not clear whether the object would have originally been hook shaped or loop shaped. The front of the strap fitting widens into a decorative segment which bears three chevron-shaped grooves, giving the appearance of a feather or leaf. The decorative segment ends in a bifurcated break…

In the centre of the other end, where the oval narrows, is a regular oval hole perforating the object. At one side of the oval perforation the metal sides narrow evenly on top and bottom, forming two terminals which are triangular in profile and rectangular in section. Between the two terminals is a 2mm wide slot stretching f…

A complete cast copper-alloy knife end cap of Post-Medieval date, c.AD 1500-1600. The knife terminal depicts the three-dimensional head of a female, which is D-shaped in section since she is wearing a high, flat-backed bonnet, the reverse of which is plain. To the front the bonnet is set back from the face and protrudes upwards in a crescent. A ridge and groove indicate where the edge of the bonnet meets the face. Crudely engraved facial features are present in the form of two incised rings marking the eyes, a slight protrusion with an incised horizontal line underneath for the nose,…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete ground stone axehead of late Neolithic date, c. 4000 - 2300 BC. The axehead is sub-ovate in plan, narrower at the butt end with a rounded curve to the cutting edge. It has an ovate section. The butt end and cutting edge are damaged, the latter more so. The unpolished nature of the object suggests it was not properly finished. Gabroic, coarse grained, with mica inclusions. The axehead is 99.1mm long, 62.6mm to 39.7mm wide, 37.6mm thick and weighs 400g.

A complete glass melon bead of uncertain date. The bead is sub-pentagonal in plan with a central circular perforation. Five longitudinal grooves in the side give the bead the appearance of a five-petaled flower. The grooves are regular. The glass is blue in colour. The bead is 9.0mm in diameter, 5.0mm thick and weighs 0.4g. The perforation is 2.8mm in diameter. Glass beads are very difficult to date with any certainty. Similar beads have been recorded on the PAS database as NCL-4ABB77, FAKL-0FBFBA, ESS-E50B53, and KENT-0F91BC with Iron Age to Medieval dates. Glass beads, particularl…

A complete glass bead of uncertain date. The bead is circular in plan with a slightly off-central circular perforation. The glass is a dark blue colour. There is a chip and scratch on the outer edge. The bead is 9.8mm in diameter, 4.6mm thick and weighs 0.5g. The perforation is 4.7mm in diameter. Glass beads are very difficult to date with any certainty. They are often thought to be Roman in date though blue glass beads were commonly used in spangles on lace making bobbins in the 19th century. Due to a lack of contextual evidence and any diagnostic features it is not possible to date…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragmentary silver-plated copper-alloy hooked tag of Early Medieval to Medieval date, c.AD 600 - 1150. Reads Class A, Type 1 or 2. The main plate is sub-triangular with rounded sides and an integral hook extending from the pointed end. The widest section of the plate has mostly broken away, meaning that it is unclear whether the complete plate would have been sub-triangular (as Reads Class A, Type 1) or sub-circular (Reads Class A, Type 2). The hook is truncated and terminates in a worn break. None of the hook's curve remains. Traces of one attachment hole are present at one edge of…
