Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron buckle, as kindly identified by the finder. Wrought iron single looped rectangular or trapezoid frame; varying degrees of corrosion leave its orientation uncertain and the appearance of a square section probably arises from loss of metal surface to corrosion. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1550-1700 Length: 28.5mm, Height: 29.4mm, Thickness: 2.5mm, Weight: 4.22gms

Object type: CANNON BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A corroded cast iron sphere, possibly a post-medieval cannon ball of 75.45mm diameter (c. 3 inches) and 1630g.  The diameter corresponds to the Imperial measurement for the second smallest 17th century cannon, the Saker, which was approximately a 3 1/4 to 3 3/4 inch bore. The name "Saker" derives from a bird of prey, and this medium sized cannon could have been manipulated relatively easily. They were popular during the Civil War, particularly during sieges. The form was suspended in the early 18th century after the formalisation of cannon sizes under Borgard, when …

Iron spanner, as kindly suggested by the finder. A large wrought iron object with a passing resemblance to an outsize key. The ‘bow’ is of angular quatrefoil form with concave faces between straighter edges; the stem is of rectangular section, and terminates in an E-shaped ‘bit’ with angular sides to its central leg and rounded outer edges to the others. The finder, a farmer, kindly suggests this is a 19th-century spanner for the removal of a wheel hub, though the distinct configurations at either end may hint at a range of related functions. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 180…

County: Worcestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An iron spoon likely post-Medieval in date. The spoon is covered in rust with some Verdigris patina over parts of it, suggesting that it was originally an iron spoon coated with a copper alloy. The spoon is bent in various places along the handle and the bowl, resulting in the bowl facing backwards and being relatively flat. There is a thin tear in the bowl around 9 o’clock in the current position it is in. There are letters stamped on the handle towards its end point, which appear to read “ON” or “NG”. The rest of the legend has been worn away. The…

A large piece of iron tap slag of uncertain date, probably Roman to Post Medieval, about AD 43 - 1600. It is dense, magnetic and black to purple in colour with some rusty patches. It forms a thick plate which is rough and irregular on the lower face and sides, with characteristic runs of solidified molten metal across the top face. Both ends of the piece are broken. In cross-section it is D shaped. Measurements are; length 1694mm, width 1035mm, thickness 453mm. Tap-slag is slag that is 'tapped' from a bloomery furnace. This is carried out during smelting so as to allow the lon…

Object type: SPEAR

County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An iron implement, possibly an Early Medieval socketed spear dating from AD 450 - 1000. It has an open split socket which is U shaped in cross-section and has a square peg hole. The socket tapers to the solid neck which is square in cross-section. The neck continues to taper to a point. It is uncertain if this is a break or whether the object is complete. It is 143.9mm long, 22.7mm wide and 16.4mm thick. 77.9g. It is unclear whether the pointed end is a break and the object would have continued into a spear head, perhaps one similar to WAW-71A829, or whether this is the intended…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Flintshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Unidentified object of probably post medieval date (c. 1600-1800AD) possibly an iron nail with its head covered in lead. The shaft is corroded and has been bent over to form a loop. The lead head is semi-spherical with a flat top. The lead covering may have helped to slow down corrosion in exposed positions. Head length: 16.3mm; head width: 13.5mm; height: 17.8mm; weight: 10.05g There are a number of similar examples recorded on the PAS database, including LIN-A9E255, SUSS-D9ED76, NLM-6B0777, NLM-9784DB and NLM-77889A.

Object type: BELL
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An iron hand bell of probable Early Medieval date, AD 700 - 1100. It has a rounded rectangular opening at the base, and tapers to the top so the two main faces are rectangular and the sides are triangular. It was made by folding a sheet of iron, so there is a seam down the centre of each side. There are two broken projections from the top, which were probably part of a ring handle; one can be seen extending into the inside of the bell too. The clapper is missing. The surface is rusted and has lumps of corrosion. There is no visible copper surface, so it is not possible to say if the b…

A Post Medieval small iron probable cannon shot, probably dating from AD 1550 - 1900. It is spherical and has evidence of some corrosion on the surface. The ball is 60.6mm in diameter and weighs 923g. The size and weight suggest that this could be for use in a cannon such as a Falcon which had a 2.5 inch bore and fired a 2lb ball. There is no evidence of impact.  See the finds recording guide for further detail on cannon balls: https://finds.org.uk/counties/findsrecordingguides/shot/. It should be noted that there are other uses for balls of this size such as in a crushing mill.
