Record ID: NMS-A720C9
Object type: STIRRUP
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Late Saxon copper alloy stirrup-strap mount of Williams 1997 Class B, Type 4, with remains of an iron rivet in the angled flange. The type, with its scalloped edges and mask has a predominantly East Anglian distribution. This example is odd in its narrowness and in the emphasis given to the hair. In addition, whereas eyes are normally prominent, here it is uncertain whether eyes are depicted. What is present might quite well be part of the hair. Height 43.5mm. Width 23.5mm. Weight 17.16g. 11th century.

A sub-triangular object made of copper alloy. The edges are very worn and the original edge is uncertain. The profile is flat and does not have a central mid-rib or lozenge shaped cross-section, which would be usual for Bronze Age arrow heads or daggers as has been suggested for this object. Recorded tentatively as a possible arrow head, its lack of diagnostic shape or patina means that a broad date range of Bronze Age to Medieval has been recorded to enable greater range of specialist input. There is a dark green patina shows through some lighter corrosion.

Cast copper-alloy strap fitting of Medieval date. The main body is formed of a upper rectangular slot with a circular hole beneath. An integral lower arm curves back 180 degrees on itself forming a hook with a keyhole shaped space between itself and the body. Where the arm reaches the top of the main body it turns sharply at right angles to almost close the gap between the returning arm and the upper body. The rectangular slot would slide onto a strap and the arm probably retained a purse, sword or similar hanging accoutrement. The front face of the hooked arm has extensive chevron and…

A cast copper alloy weight probably dating to the Post-medieval period. It is simpler in form to a lead spindle whorl and probably used in the same way. The weight is circular and domed in shaped, with a convex base and a circular perforation through the centre. There are no markings on the weight. Similar to YORYM-36C325 The diameter is 18mm and the weight 3.81g.

A complete lead alloy weight or spindle whorl of probable medieval date. The object is broadly circular in plan and cylindrical decorated with raised lines and pellets. There is a circular aperture through the centre of the object which may suggest this is a spindle whorl rather than a weight. It is decorated with raised pellets. These types of objects are hard to date as their appearance remained unchanged for many hundreds of years. However it is likely that this spindle whorl is of medieval date (AD 1200-1500). Helen Geake writes: "Dating of lead whorls is difficult. The drop spindl…

On one, a flower with six pointed oval petals, meeting at the remains of a central pellet. This one's casting is reminiscent of tokens that can be firmly dated to the Post Medieval so a general date of c1600 to c1800 AD is suggested. There are a number of biface tokens on the database that combine variations on the flower & grid patterns.

County: Worcestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy pin, dating from the Roman period. The pin has been cast in one piece and is complete, although the shaft has become distorted. The head is of circular section, with a vertical outer face and convex upper surface. Two grooves have been incised at the top of the circular-sectioned shaft, which tapers to a point. This is a common form of Roman pin, close parallels being nos. 214 and 215 from excavations at Baldock, Hertfordshire (Stead and Rigby 1986: fig. 54). The dating evidence from Baldock suggests that pins of this form date from the 2nd century onwards (ibid. 128).…

SIlver, Medieval, complete, Penny of Alexander III of Scotland (AD 1249 - AD1286), dating to the period AD 1280 - AD 1286. Issued as part of the Second Coinage, Long cross and stars reverse type. Initial Mark: Cross Potent. Mint: possibly Berwick. Spink No. 5054 , page 18. Diameter: 19.9 mm Thickness: 0.6 mm Weight: 1.0 g Spink (2003) argues that the number of points on the stars, in total, can identify the mint, this example has 24 points in total and would suggest Berwick on Tweed as the mint. This coin is missing part of the legend to the right and the bottom of the reverse.

An thickening in the centre of the strap bar suggests the remains of a copper alloy pin, originally bent around the strap bar before extending to meet the roller. Now only a small fragment remains, close to the strap bar. It measures 25mm long and 18mm wide. Griffiths, Philpott and Egan (2007: 84) illustra…

Post Medieval copper alloy double looped buckle with integral strap bar and missing pin. The buckle is formed of two broadly 'D' shaped loops with triangular expansions in the centre of the outer edge and concave top and bottom edges. The strap bar appears circular in section and slightly widened in the centre. An area of orange staining around the strap bar could indicate the pin was made of iron, although it is possible that this is a muddy deposit. It measures 30mm long and 18mm wide. A parallel is shown in Whitehead (2003; 55), no. 318 dated 1500-1650 AD.

A complete copper-alloy strap end, probably of Roman date (c. AD 43-410). It has a rectilinear split end and is parallel-sided; the split end has a single, centrally placed circular rivet hole. The terminal is decorated with a single bold circumferential raised moulding above an ovate knob which is conical beneath. The metal is a mid brown in colour. Compare SF-19FAB0 and NMS-175DC1, and strap-ends without the moulding and with more prominent rounded knobs, such as LIN-3606A4. All of these strap-ends are difficult to date, but parallels from Chapman 2005 are cited on the record of SF-19FAB0.

There is a small circular casting sprue. Lead tokens had a wide variety of uses and were made locally, they are therefore hard to date precisely and could be Medieval or Post Medieval in date (1250-1850 AD).
