Object type: HAMMER
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron hammer or hand mattock of uncertain date (c. 43 - 1900 AD). The object is rectangular in plan, with a flat blade at one end and a circular face at the other; it widens slightly towards the blade end. The object is triangular when viewed from the side, narrowing towards the flat end, with a distinctive curve. A rectangular perforation can just be made out towards the circular end of the object, although this is now obscured through the encrustation that covers the surface of the object. The object is red-brown in colour. It is 86.13mm in length, 38.07mm in width and 30.20mm at maxi…

Incomplete iron key of probable medieval or post-medieval date (c. 1200 - 1800 AD). The bit of the key is missing, while the bow of the object is broadly oval in shape and the shank is circular in section. Detailed assessment of the object is obscured by concretion caused by iron corrosion that covers its surface. The object is reddish-brown in colour. It is 81.48mm in length, 36.58mm at maximum width and 51.31mm in thickness. It weighs 73.27g.

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An iron axe, axehead or hatchet of uncertain date possibly Medieval but more likely to be post medieval date (1000 - 1800 AD). The axe is incomplete and only the blade and cutting edge survive - it is broadly sub-triangular in plan with an irregular expanded blade: in profile it is wedge shaped. The socket of the axe is broken and the break is old and patinated- because of the break it is uncertain how the socket was formed. The butt of the axe is lost. The internal face of the socket has the remains of iron impregnated wood imbedded within the corrosion. As the blade expands in width …

Iron nails. Twenty-one fragments of wrought iron nails and nail shanks. Most exhibit a square section which may arise from the flaking of corrosion as much as from their original form. The heads, where they remain, are often formed by a flattening of the broader end of the shank, though one achieves a T-shape, one retains part of a flat rounded head, two have rounded knob ends, and one has a squared end like a bolt. The poor condition will have arisen from repeated disturbance in the plough-soil, though some may also have been subjected to the burning of wood into which they had been d…

Object type: HOOK
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron hook. A wrought iron hook comprising a U-shaped shank of rounded section with a tightly curled loop at one end and tapered slightly towards an expanded and rounded knob at the other; the knob was presumably intended to prevent a load from slipping off the hook. This might have been used for lifting heavy items, perhaps with a strap passing through the U-shaped part of the object. The mass suggests good survival of the metal core, and hence, in an open field context subject to recurrent disturbance, a relatively recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1650-1850 Height: 99.3mm,…

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An unidentified Iron artefact of unknown date. It is in the form of a narrow blade,that is flat on one side and slightly curved on the other side, resulting in a slight thickening in the centre of the blade. It tapers from the centre to a sharp point at one end and to what appears to be a cutting edge at the other, though the absence of any means of securing a haft probably means that it is not an axe and may be part of a larger piece of farming equipment. The artefact now shows the surface corrosion normal on iron artefacts. It is 162mm long, 48.6mm wide and 13.5mm thick. It weighs 303g..

County: North Yorkshire

A metal unidentified object or probably Modern date. It is a sub-rectangular block of a dense gray magnetic metal, perhaps steel. On end is rounded, and the other end is exceedingly worn, tapering in thickness due to wear on the upper face, and unevenly convex across the end. The other edges are bevelled, so the top face is smaller than the bottom, and the sides are carinated, with the carination closer to the bottom face. A circular perforation near the rounded end is filled with a spiral coil of what appears to be similar material. This projects slightly from the bottom face, by abou…

A fragment of an iron and copper alloy knife of medieval or post-medieval date. The fragment consists of the copper alloy guard and the stump of the iron blade and hilt. The guard is broadly rectangular in plan and profile but in plan is narrowed towards the centre. It is a stretched hexagon in cross-section. One edge of one end of the guard has a projecting lip; this feature does not appear on the other end off the guard. The stump of the blade is heavily rusted, but it is thick at on one side than the other indicating that this object was a single edged knife. The lip on the guard is…

Iron knife fragment. Wrought iron blade and tang of a whittle tanged knife with a V-section blade and a rectangular section tang. The tip of the blade is lost to an ancient break, while the tang is chipped at both ends [recent damage]. The whittle tang was the predominant form of hafting from the early medieval period and through the high Middle Ages. The mass suggest fairly good survival of the metal core. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1400 Length: 112.7mm, Height: 16.7mm, Thickness: 6.0mm, Weight: 28.50gms

County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An iron knife blade and tang, possibly dating from the medieval period, about AD 1200 - 1500, but possibly from AD 1350 - 1400. The knife has a whittle tang of square section tapering to a rectangular wedge. It projects at an angle from the blade. The back of the knife is convex. The tip is missing. The cutting blade is also convex, wider near the shoulder. It is 116.1mm long, 30.2mm wide and 6.2mm thick. It weighs 22.6g. Number 113 on page 91 of Cowgill et al (1987) is a broadly similar shape and dates from the late 14th century.

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron strap. A fragment of a wrought iron object with one straight long side, the other long side having a gentle curve. The strap is slightly [by c.5mm] thicker at one end, which bears a drilled hole, possibly a fixing point. The other end is lightly curved. Probably building ironwork from an indeterminate setting. The good survival of the metal, inferred from its mass and good surface condition, could point to a relatively recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1650-1900 Length: 138mm, Width: 43.5mm, Thickness: 12.2mm, Weight: c.230gms
