A lead fragment, possibly from the tip of a leg of a small cast vessel, possibly a posnet or skillet, of probable post-medieval date. The object is abraded, but seems to be formed from two conjoined ribs, giving an overall D-shape section, there is no well defined foot, the object tapers to a simple blunt point. The surface texture would indicate sand casting. Butler and Green (2003) suggest that this simple form became common in sand cast 18th and 19th century skillets. Length 19 mm, width 18.1 tapering to 11.2 mm Weight 10.4 g

County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy book clasp of medieval date (c. 1350 - c. 1450). The object is formed of a flat semi-eliptical plate with a central circular rivet hole. The strap fitting element of the clasp is missing. From comparison to similar objects (e.g. ESS-7B2A4D, DENO-0D92E8, DENO-D04BE4) this would probably have been a strap bar held in two loops. The terminal is also missing, only a small segment remains, extending 2.5 mm from the plate and showing evidence of a drilled hole. The surface of the plate has 14 incised dots, more or less equally spaced around the periphery. These …

Object type: CLOTH SEAL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete post medieval lead cloth seal (c. 1500 - c. 1700). The object is the rivet disc of probably a two-disc set, there is an old diametic break and approximately one third of the disc is missing. The disc shows a steep sided crown with three interior crosses, over what appears to be the initials T N - this interpretation is not certain because most of the letters are missing due to the break. It is possible that this is an alnage seal of Thomas Napper, who appears in the alnage tables for Gloucestershire in 1689. The reverse of the disc is undecorated and has the flattened riv…

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead perforated weight of probably Post Medieval to Modern date, about AD 1500 - 1900. It is flat and rectangular in section, and an elongated octagon in plan. There is a keyhole shaped hole through the weight at one end (rounded at one end and narrower and rectangonal at the other); it is not clear whether it was always intended to be this shape, or whether it has been worn by suspension on a loop or rope. The edges and corners of the weight are worn and rounded. This may be from water damage, since the weight was found near a river. This has led to speculation that the weight may h…

A copper alloy armlet or bracelet probably dating from the Later Bronze Age, about 1000 BC - 800 BC. It is a penannular loop with flared, expanding terminals. These are close together, leaving a gap of only about 4-6mm between them. Each terminal is circular and the ends are concave or hollow. The inner face of one terminal is rough and corroded and has gravel adhering to the concretion. The outer sides of the terminals are straight, flaring from the armlet hoop to the widest point of the terminals at the very end. The hoop is mainly D shaped in cross section and varies in diameter. It…

A heavily worn and incomplete gilt copper-alloy heraldic horse harness pendant of Medieval (AD 1300-1400). Description: The pendant is quatrelobed with angular projections between each lobe. The design taking up much of the central area appears may be a highly worn heraldic shield of arms. The heraldry design or 'blazon' is uncertain, with three elements in chief, possibly flowers, with a cover element towards the bottom of the shield, possibly ermine. Due to the wear it is not possible to be certain. The shield is in the common 'heater' form with angular top corners, in this case mak…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a cast lead armorial cloth seal. The fragment consists of a strip, cut or torn across the diameter of a circular seal, 32 mm long, 14.5 mm wide and 1.5 mm thick, weighing 6 g. The fragment is damaged at both ends, so the precise diameter of the seal is uncertain. The front face is decorated with a double-arched St Edward's crown over a Tudor rose, within a ring of pellets. The back face is strengthened by a thicker band of lead, 3 mm wide, across the diameter of the seal. Egan (1994) illustrates a complete circular shaped cloth seal with an apparently identical design on…
