A cast copper alloy fragment most probably from a medieval 'roller' buckle (1350-1500). The fragment is relatively small comprising a pointed oval hoop from which extends two horizontal bars - one either side . The mid point of one side of the oval has a deliberate worn pin rest / notch. The buckle is a mid grey green colour with an applied black coloured surface - possibly decayed tinning. The reverse face is flat whist in cross section all elements are distinctly triangular. A direct parallel has not been found. The buckle fragment measures 20.9mm length, 14.8mm width, is 2.7mm…

Object type: CLOTH SEAL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast lead alloy cloth seal of post medieval date (1550-1800). The cloth seal is incomplete and broken - almost all detail is lost through corrosion and abrasion. The seal is formed of two discs conjoined by a folded tablike strip. The central spike which would have penetrated the cloth is lost - suggesting that this seal has been deliberately removed before being discarded, The design on the front face is indistinct - possibly being a large A with heavy cross bar and top bar; the reverse face is broken and distorted due to damage. A similar seal has been recorded from Brailles, Warw…

A cast copper-alloy end cap (terminal / pommel) from a scale-tang knife of later medieval or post-medieval date (AD 1400-1600) The terminal is incomplete and one side has been damaged - originally the cap would have been fleur-de-lis shaped with a central domed element which was flanked by two out-turned crescents - only one of which survives. A deep central longitudinal sub-rectangular (V shaped) slot that enabled a tang to be accommodated is present at one end of the knife. This is filled with the remains of the iron tang which is broken but projects. Some of the patina has been lo…

Silver cut half penny probably of King John struck by the moneyer Iohan (Johan) at an uncertain mint - most probably Canterbury but this part of the coin is cut away. From the look and feel of the lettering and portrait this coin is likely to belong to Short Cross Class 5 - struck between 1204-1207 - this is one of the most common classes and Canterbury is also a prolific mint at this time.

The remains of a copper alloy early Roman bronze coin. The fragment is irregular in plan and profile and seems to have been altered by severe uncontrolled heat, creating a metalic blob similar in patina to many early Roman coins; sesterti, dupondi or asses. Due to the distortion a direct parallel has not been found.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible, incomplete cast lead alloy (pewter?), disc brooch of Weetch type 5 and early medieval date (10th century AD). There is some debate as to whether this is actually part of a brooch or possibly a post medieval lead token; due to significant areas of damage it is impossible to be certain of the identification. However, it is the recorders assessment that the diagnostic elements of design and potential fittings on the reverse suggest that this is a brooch. If the artefact is a brooch it would have originally been circular, however due to abrasion and plough damage, it is now mo…

The fragment tapers slightly from the rim, although one edge is heavily abraded. The fragment is a mid green colour with an even powdery patina. This patina has been abraded in several places, probably through movement in the soil. This movement has also damaged the edges producing an asymmetrical shape. In the area…
