  • Thumbnail image of FAKL-6AC519

Record ID: FAKL-6AC519
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Flint blade with retouched notches(short, scaled, abrupt) on both edges. These notches (three on one side and two on the other) are cut through the recortication showing them to have been added to a blade, with a low bulb of percussion, produced at an earlier date. The flint is opaque, mixed grey with an area of cortex at one end. The reuse of an existing flint 'found' flint is a feature of Late Neolithic and Bronze Age lithics. . Length 68mm, Width 25mm, Thickness 9mm, Mass 12.47g.

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Lithic implement combining a scraper and a denticulate blade made on a piece of poor quality, opaqued, mixed white and grey flint with a small area of original cortex at one end. This suggests that the blade, with a low bulb of percussion, had been struck from a flint cobble. Retouch (short, scaled, semi-abrupt) at one end forms a scraper. Coarse teeth were produced along one side using short, scaled, abrupt, retouch. This object is difficult to date but its poor qualitiy suggest that it is late, probably Late Neolithic or Bronze Age. . Length 63mm, Width 31mm, Thickness 12.5mm, Mass 30.30g.

Large hammerstone made from a flint nodule, probably a fossil sponge, roughly spherical with a small projection, with a central hole representing its attachment to the sea bed. Much of the original cortex survives but in a damaged area an opaque, mixed grey flint can be seen. Recortication is light. Substantial areas of the nodule show the results of battering, the surface being covered with rough, hackly fractures. Hammerstones are difficult to date but, if as seems likely, it came from Iford Hill, a prehistoric date seems likley. Diameter 92mm, Height 97mm, Mass 904.1g

Large flint core, cylindrical and used for the production of broad flakes. Multiple striking platforms at at varied angles to each other. Some platform preparation has taken place. A small area area of original cortex survives suggesting that mined flint had been used. The core, while recorticated, has the blotchy appearance suggestive of the flint typical of this site. The form of this core and the nature of its products suggest that it is Early Neolithic date. Length 60mm, Width 53mm, Thickness 42mm, Mass 113.7g

Spindle whorls are notoriously difficult to date, but examples decorated like this one are usually considered to be Medieval, lasting through to the adoption of the spinning wheel in the 16th.

Flint oblique arrowhead, triangular in plan with a hollow base, and lozenge-shaped in profile and section. The base with its slight barbs on either side would have been hafted on to the arrow shaft. There is invasive retouch on both the dorsal and ventral faces, and on all margins and at the distal and proximal ends. The colour of the flint is a slightly translucent mottled orange-brown colour which suggests that it was probably derived from a local beach pebble. The length to breadth ratio is about 3:2 which is common for this type of oblique arrowhead. Bond (2004) illustrates a simi…

Part of a lead alloy Medieval flat seal matrix dating from about AD 1200 - 1400. About half survives. It was a pointed oval shaped with a central motif (probably a star) within a plain incised line border surrounded by a legend of large letters. They read: "[...]HANNIS A[...]" (Seal of John A[...]). A mark in the central field may be a letter h on its side, perhaps the last letter of the legend if the die cutter ran out of space. The reverse is decorated with a cast design of a fleur-de-lis. If there was a handle lug, it does not survive on this piece. The matrix is 19.9mm long, 21.1mm…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead alloy Medieval flat seal matrix probably dating from AD 1200 - 1400. The die face is very flat and it seems likely that the matrix was never engraved with a design or legend. It was a pointed oval shape, but the edges are damaged at one end. The reverse appears to be plain apart from a central riased rib which had a pierced lug at one end, though this has broken off. The matrix is 29.8mm long, 19.6mm wide, 4.5mm thick and 12.64g. An uncut matrix suggests local manufacture or retail, the legend and motif being added at or after the time of purchase.

An incomplete lead alloy Medieval flat seal matrix probably dating from AD 1200 - 1400. Unfortunately, the matrix is scratched, bent and broken and none of the legend can be read. It was a pointed oval shaped with a central motif (perhaps a cross or fleur) within a plain incised line border surrounded by a legend. The letters look to have been large and crude, but none are legible. The reverse appears to be plain and any handle lug does not survive on this fragment. It is 21.8mm long, 20.1mm wide and 2.7mm thick. 6.15g.

However, the fleur-de-lis mark occurs on Seal Top, Slip Top and Triffid spoons and suggest a possible date range of c.1500-c.1650 (Homer 1975). Extant length (excluding a stump of the shank) 65mm.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete post-Medieval fob seal matrix with a glass intaglio (c. 1750-c. 1800). The handle is missing. This is a rectangular setting, frame or holder and in plan it has rounded corners. The edges are slightly raised at the sides and each shorter side a fitting is missing which would have accommodated a spigot that allowed the frame to revolve. The rear face of the frame has regular waffle-like pattern which is similar to that of IOW-696E94 which suggests it is of similar date. The intaglio possibly depicts a potter at a wheel and is made of dark glass. The length is 18mm, the wid…

Georgian two piece shoe buckle of cast copper alloy. It is rectangular in shape with rounded corners and has a moulded curvilinear line around the outer edge of the frame.

It has a loop chape with two spikes and a pitchfork double tongue (Whitehead type VII) c.1720-1770. The frame and chape has a greenish patina, but there is orange rusting at the centre of the chape suggesting that the spindle is iron. The length is 53mm, the width is 50mm and the weight 16.94g.

A silver coin of post-medieval date. The coin is extremely worn rendering all detail illegible. It has been stamped on one side with the letter B and also the initials WP. The latter initials are stamped to the upper left side of the larger B and are upside down in relation to it. These stamped letters on such a worn coin suggest its reuse as a love token. Coins of William III were commonly converted into love tokens and this example is roughly the right size and weight for a sixpence of William III though no detail remains to confirm this attribution.
