A cast, copper alloy artefact, purpose currently unknown, probably dating from the medieval period. It consists of a rectangular openwork frame within which is a three dimensional zoomorphic figure of an unidentified animal. It is very worn, so it is not clear if it is a whole animal with four legs splayed outwards, or if it is a crouched animal with four struts connecting it to the frame, or even if it is just the head of a beast. The zoomorphic moulding is significantly projecting and is hollow on the underside. One of the long sides of the rectangle extends outwards into a flat pla…

A possible cast, copper alloy, bracelet, probably either Iron Age or Roman, dating from 800AD - 410BC. It is triangular in section, tapering to broken points at the ends, so it is uncertain if it was a complete circle or penannular. The inside is smooth. The bracelet has a smooth, light green patina. It is 74.5mm long, 60.1mm wide and 6.7mm thick. It weighs 36.56gm. No parallel has been found, so the possibility of other functions must be considered. It seems rather robust, so possibly it was some form of tethering loop.

No parallels have yet been found, but based upon the decorative style the tag is likely to date from the 17th to 18th centuries in date. It measures 46.8 mm long, 25.6 mm

A copper-alloy dagger quillon of medieval date. The quillon is lozenge shaped with four faceted edges, tapering towards the terminals. Each end terminates in a multi-faceted knop. The centre of the quillon has a sub-oval aperture through which the tang of the blade would originally have passed. The quillon has a grey patina in the centre which differs from the greener patina at either end, indicating that this would once have been covered, perhaps by leather which would have helped secure the tang in place. The quillon is slightly concaved on one side, and slightly convex on the other…

A small circular lead alloy weight, with outwardly-sloping sides, suggesting it has been moulded from a cup-type weight. A reverse S surrounded by double-lined border adorns the larger face. The reverse is plain. This is probably a home-made trade weight, and hard to date although it is probably late medieval - post-medieval in date.

Cast iron ring with copper alloy disc cast onto one edge of the ring, which is 21 mm in diameter and 13 mm thick. The disc has the arms of the Duchy of Cornwall, represented by a shield with 15 besants, stamped into it. The iron core in the steel ring is still intact, which suggests that this ring is not very old, as iron corrodes very quickly in the Cornish acidic soil. The substantial size of the ring suggests it might have been part of a chain, perhaps for a gatepost.

A cast copper alloy weight of possible Early Medieval date. It is sub circular in plan, with some straight sides, and rectangular in section. It is 19.8mm in diameter and 8.9mm thick. It weighs 19.59gm. (0.691oz). There are purposeful markings on both faces, consisting of a variety of grooves and possible faint relief markings, which are hard to interpret. Although it is not obviously of any particular date, odd copper-alloy weights can be found in the Viking period, and so it has been tentatively dated to then, supported by other Early Medieval finds from this area. Compare SF6604.

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast lead weight of unusual form but probable post medieval origin. The form is that of a thimble and the pitting to the narrow topmost section is indicative of this having been cast within perhaps a copper alloy thimble. There are neither fixing points nor holes to suggest use other than as a simple weight. The diameter decreases to 12.8mm from 16.37mm. The surface has the typical pale cream patina further discoloured by the reddish soil adhered to the surface.

A hefty lump of cast lead of unknown use but most likely a weight, probably dating from the post medieval but an earlier origin can not be ruled out. In form, it resembles wicker basket with a sub oval plan view and the rounded bottom with a central protruding 'handle'. The 'handle' has been drilled through to afford a fixing option. That 'handle section could be seen as the 'tenon' to form a joint with some other material/handle. As for use, it may be a weight; the lower face has numerous surface marks/dents that may indicate use as a form of pestle. It is now covered with the …

A miniature object in the form of a cast copper alloy axehead of probable of 1st/4th century Roman origin. The axehead may well have been hafted via the cast hole (eye) to the top of the blade. The axe is probably a votive device and whilst it is presumed to be Roman, a later medieval origin cannot be ruled out. The surface has a rough dark brown/green corrosion.

Cast copper alloy blade from a palstave or Middle Bronze Age flanged axe, sub-triangular in plan and sub-rectangular in section, tapering to a point at one end where the blade terminates. The ends of the central ribs survive on both faces of the blade, below the broken end, but the blade above this is missing so there is no evidence of the median ribs dividing a shield shape below the stop-ridge. The blade is broad and only slightly expanded and because the stop-ridge, flanges and possible side-loop are missing, it is difficult to date this fragment. The raised central rib is wide and…

A copper alloy sub-circular section of a purse frame typically of Late Medieval to Early Post Medieval dating (c.1450 to c.1550). Late Medieval purse frames came in several sections. The main part consisted of a purse bar and hanger which hung off the belt. The purse bar supported the main part of the purse. Attached to the purse bar, were one or two supporting (pendent) arms, which would have the bag of the purse sewn onto it, to maintain the shape and increase the durability of the purse. It would have the additional advantage that it would make the purse slightly less su…
