Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Medieval copper alloy seal matrix, dating AD 1200-1400. The object has a circular die and a pointed oval handle with circular perforation to form a loop for it to be hung around the neck. The die is very worn and the inscription is no longer legible, even after impression. There is a thin cross engraved onto the die, though the angle of the arms are not even. There appear to be file marks on the handle, suggesting the object was unfinished as a result of the irregular decoration. The metal is a dark brown colour. No similar examples of the decoration have been found, but similarly s…

County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Medieval copper alloy strap end, dating AD 1270-1400. The object is formed of a rectangular strip that has been folded over, with two rivet holes at each end. At the bend a loop has been formed by widening the gap between the sheets. There are two copper alloy rivets still in place and what appears to be traces of a material within the sheets. There are also traces of gilding in places, suggesting the object would have been more decorative. Similar examples are published in Egan and Pritchard (1991, nos. 749-754) all of which are decorated though none mention gilding. These strap e…

A lead alloy bifacial token that is circular in plan. The surface is very worn and it is extremely difficult to determine any exact patterns, though one face seems to include a series of raised dots around the outside, circling a pattern in the centre. This face has a large groove from the outer edge to the centre caused by what appears to be a sharp instrument. The other face seems to depict a man mounted on a horse in sunken relief, again with a slightly grooved border encircling the design. Tokens were easy to make and distributed widely throughout a large period of time; therefore…
