Object type: HORSESHOE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete wrought iron horseshoe of later medieval date. It has a rounded outer edge and an inner profile resembling a pointed arch. The artefact is highly corroded but generally survives well. The length is 115mm, the width is 117mm and the weight 126.32g. The style and size suggest a draught shoe and probably a dove shoe of circa 14th to late 15th century. Reference Ivan. G. Sparkes, Old Horseshoes, Page 15. This 'later medieval' form can be found illustrated in Clark (1986, 3; fig. 8). Clark, J., 1995. The Medieval Horse and its Equipment c.1150 - c.1450.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper alloy, arrowhead, of probable Medieval dating (AD 1250 to AD 1500).

The central spine or rib is narrow at the tip and broadens along the length of the arrowhead. Two sub-triangular blades expand from either side of the spine; these are relatively narrow. Both blades have been damaged at the edges. The rib is a similar width on both sides of the object. The arrowhead has a dark brown c…

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete and warped fragment from a medieval iron barrel padlock of Goodall's (in Biddle, 1990) Type D dating to the period c. AD 1066 - 1500. The remaining fragment consists of part of the case which is constructed of a series of pieces of sheet iron brazed together. There is a longitudinal strengthening strip visible running down the exterior of the case. The copper alloy brazing fluid has coated the surface of the object, forming a protective layer around the iron plates. Similar padlocks recovered from excavated contexts in Winchester are discussed in Biddle, M, et al, 1990, Art…

County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An iron tanged knife of probable Early Early-Medieval date (c. AD 450-670). The blade is triangular in cross-section, being thickest at the back of the blade (5.4mm) and narrowing to 1.2mm at the cutting edge. The blade back is convexly curved, as is the cutting edge (although shallower compared to the blade back). The tip is missing and the tang (25.6mm long, 4.0mm thick and narrowing from 10.1mm to 5.3mm wide) extends from the centre of the 27.8mm long vertical edge opposite to the missing tip. The knife measures 113.6mm in length, 37.7mm in max.width, 5.4mm in max.thickness and weig…

Object type: WEDGE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An iron axehead or more likely a woodworking tool such as a wedge. The piece is trapezoid in plan and rectangular in section, tapering to the blade edge. However, there is no clear area where the wooden handle would have been attached, and the 'handle-end' is flat which might suggest it was used as a woodworking wedge. Moreover, the metal at the flat-end is rolled over in places towards the blade-end, which would be consistent with the item being struck for use as a wedge. The object is corroded. The date of the item is uncertain, but post-medieval is possible. The height of the blad…

Iron possible knife fragment. The curved handle plate or scale tang and a short part of the blade of a knife-like tool. The blade lacks a V-section and is blunt, with a thickness at its back of 5.5mm and of 2.7mm along its lower edge. The curved end to the tang lends the object a recent appearance, as does the good overall condition of the metal. Suggested date: Post-Medieval to Modern, 1850-1950.

Iron possible plane. Rectangular section object which tapers towards one end when viewed in profile, and with an off-centre round or U-shaped hole of diameter c.17mm which retains an angled blade of width c.14mm. The blade is apparently an insert separate from the body of the object and lies against an angled surface on one side, to the rear as a user would view it. The blade was revealed when mud was cleared from the hole in order to record the object. At first viewed as a simple hammer head, this object lacks the functional divisions characteristic of hammers used for carpentry or th…

Copper alloy and iron fragment, probably dating from the post-medieval or early modern period, 17th-19th century. The iron plate and part of the lock is much corroded, but the copper alloy lock cover is still in good condition. It is undecorated and riveted to the iron plate, probably with another iron rivet at the top. It would have covered the key hole and would have been pushed out of the way to insert the key.

Iron knife fragment. A probably composite object comprising the tang of a whittle tanged knife with the start of its V-section blade, seen as a broken stub at the end of a short iron handle or long bolster of broad ogival section with a flat face corresponding to the back of the blade. At the other end of the handle, the tang appears, and presumably continued into a further element of the handle made of different material. The handle expands slightly towards its putative terminal. One side of the handle bears at least eight closely spaced lines which may represent the position of a dec…

Object type: KEY (LOCKING)
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete iron key for a barrel padlock, dating to the medieval period. The key has a sub-oval loop and a thick shank which is boradly rectangular / flat in cross section. The shank tapers from the loop to the bit, which is curved to a near right-angle from the shank. There are three upright rectangular bits projecting from the shank bit, all of which show signs of use. This example survives in unusually good condition. Similar examples are illustrated in Ward-Perkins (1940:149 figure 45). These are from contexts dating from c. AD 1200 onwards.
