Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Medieval iron barbed and socketed arrowhead, dating 13th-14th century. The arrow head has a triangular blade and a circular socket. The blade section tapers very gradually from the socket to the point, with barbs at the socket end which extend over the socketed section. The central spine is subtle and not well pronounced. One of the barbs is damaged and missing a small section from the blade edge. Similar examples on the database are GLO-BF0875, SF-5A266B and LON-ECF872. Dimensions: length: 52.55mm; width: 14.99mm; thickness: 4.74mm; weight: 9.03g.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Late Iron Age to Early Roman Iron early hinged brooch, probably dating to AD 25-70. The surviving fragment comprises of the upper bow, head and partial pin, the lower bow being lost to a corroded break. The head of the brooch survives to a width of 17.8mm, with cylindrical wings retaining an iron axis bar in situ. A hinged iron pin projects from the reverse of the head, sub-rectangular in cross section and truncated by a fresh break. The bow projects from the head with a width of 10.8mm and a sub-rectangular cross section, 5.3mm thick. The sides of the bow are roughly parallel, and …

Object type: JEWS HARP
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: West Berkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete post-medieval iron 'Jew's harp', missing only the tongue. The harp consists of a rounded C-shaped end which extends to two prongs, which would have rested in the mouth. There is a groove on the centre of the rounded end where the tongue would have attached. It is sub-lozenge shaped in cross section. The iron of the harp is corroded with fragments flaking. This object probably dates to the post-medieval period c.1600-1800, but could be slightly earlier.

Iron and copper alloy possible stirrup mount. An iron plate or frame, possibly of trapezoid hexagonal form (cf. Williams' Class A Type 5) or circular with a flattened base, and with a central zone occupied by a sub-rectangular component, whether made in one piece with the outer frame or inserted is uncertain. From the front it might appear as a sub-circular frame with a rectangular plate superimposed. Three flat-headed copper alloy studs [with heads of diameter c.11mm] are set approximately centrally to the putative central plate, and presumably mark its display side. When the object i…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron possible punch. A rectangular section narrow tool, tapering towards an angled point, probably original given light burring at its edges. The broader end, presumably hafted when in use is perhaps broken or disrupted in some way. This might, as it currently remains, have served to drive holes through thick leather, or it might alternatively been a blacksmith's punch for holing iron objects such as horseshoes. The surface condition is good for a ferrous metal object, and the mass indicates substantial survival of the metal core. A Post-Medieval date is therefore inferred. Suggested d…

Iron ring. A plain band of wrought iron, of probably rectangular section, now oval.

Iron and copper alloy possible weight. A possibly cast iron object of a solid flat-based bowl-shaped form with relicts of thin [0.3mm] copper alloy sheathing on its flat base. This appears to have formerly extended further up the sides of the 'bowl', though both its original extent and the overall completeness of the object remain uncertain.

A complete iron horse shoe of late medieval to early post-medieval date (c. 1350 - c. 1700) The shoe has a broad web (46 mm at the toe, 33 mm at the heel) and is 130 mm wide. In overall shape, it matches the late medieval form described by Clark (1986, p. 3, fig. 8). Four nails are in situ in sequence on the branch of the shoe (possibly more are present on the quarter but due to corrosion of the plate surface they are not distinct). There is a calkin on the right heel, none seems to be present on the left. Assuming the calkin to protrude down towards the road surface, the whole plate i…

Iron and silver knife fragment. Wrought iron mid-part of a whittle tanged knife blade, with broken stubs protruding from the ends of a silver sleeve or bolster set between the blade and the handle into which the tang passed. The blade is identified by its thick V section while the tang was of rectangular or square section. The silver sleeve is cylindrical and bears incised decoration overall. This is confined by billeted borders: at the blade end, where the end of the cylinder appears as an unadorned flat surface, this is plain, though limited by a double line border; at the other end,…

A complete iron axe-like object of Post-Medieval date, c.AD 1600 - 1800. The object is sub-rectangular in plan with an expanded blade with a pronounced downward projection. Much of the original cutting edge has been lost to degradation though it appears to have had a gentle curve. The butt end of the axe is sub-triangular in plan and no socket is present. The metal has a mid-orangey-brown patina and is heavily corroded. The object is 216.8mm long, 138.9mm wide at the blade, 69.4mm wide at the socket, 4.8mm thick at the blade, 38.1mm thick at the socket. While the form of this object …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete cast iron probable shot or cannon ball dating from the post-medieval period, about AD 1500-1700. It is a sphere of iron, with a slightly pited and corroded surface, dark brown in colour. It is 39.5mm diameter (1,5 inches) and has a mass of 235g (eight and a quarter ounces). It may have been itended for use in a Serpentine cannon which had a nominal bore size of 1.5 inch diameter, firing shot weighing 0.75 lb, or a Rabinet cannon which fired shot weighing 8oz. Corrosion may have altered the size and weight of this example. Compare SOM-A0A8A2 which cites Blackmore (1990) Arms…

Iron shot. Solid cast ball, with mould line. The mass exceeds the capacity of weighing equipment at the disposal of this reporter, though it does not feel inconsistent with a weight of c.5lbs or 2.3kg. The diameter is probably consistent with the 3½ inch bore of the light field gun known as a Saker or Drake - names drawn from those of hawks and reptiles, and applied to such weaponry in the 17th century. This was among the larger guns which might be deployed in open fighting, and at the smaller end of those used in the defence of fortified places, and on ships. Dr Kevin Leahy has comme…

An iron core in copper-alloy casing Early Medieval weight, dating to AD 850-1066. It is spherical with two opposite flat faces. One face has a circular sunken line decorated with a series of punched annulets; the opposite flat face might have had the same decoration, but the iron corrosion has burts through the copper-alloy coating and covers large part of the surface.

Iron ploughshare, as kindly identified by the finder. A triangular lightly concavo-convex bar with low [7mm maximum] ridges flanking its convex face, which tapers towards a triangular blade springing from its narrow end. The ridges appear to have been differentially reduced by wear. The concave side of the bar is featureless save for two partially blind holes of diameter 11mm at its broader end, which is angled. These presumably attached the share to a wooden beam. The object is covered, and corrosion of the iron perhaps retarded, by a creamy cement-like encrustation overall. The good …
