Record ID: LIN-19FE66
Object type: BELL
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An iron clapper from a bell. The shank is hexagonal in section and terminates with a swollen terminal also of hexagonal section. The suspension loop at the top is formed by a simple loop with the terminal partially coiled back around the shank. The clapper measures 140mm in length. The width of the shank is circa 11mm. The 'ball' measures circa 21mm in diameter. This clapper, which is likely to have come from a large hand-bell, was found in association with several other bell fragments of probable middle Saxon date, for example LIN-E97BD1, LIN-E86CFC, LIN-D8FC8C, and LIN-4B37F8.

Object type: AXE
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Merthyr Tydfil
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Earliest to Early Iron Age iron socketed axehead, probably of 8th to 5th century BC date The axehead is symmetrical in form and is incomplete, missing part of one face and side and is a small example (with a length of 88.6mm and a weight of 116.5g). The mouth appears to have been sub-rectangular (with a surviving external width and depth of 32mm and 27mm respectively and 3mm - 11mm thick). The socket (56mm deep) is also of rectangular or sub-rectangular form. There is a suggestion of a gentle out-turning at the mouth but no clear evidence for a collar. The sides are moderately straight…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron binding or ferrule. A flat wrought iron strip of thickness c.3mm whose ends overlap at one point, through which a nail or fixing pin passed [now lost]. A second nail of length 34mm passes through the strip on its opposite side. The object was clearly wrapped around and firmly attached to a wooden member of rounded section with an estimated diameter of c.50mm. Given the thin nature of the strip and its relatively good condition a post-medieval date is proposed. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1900. Width: 21.8mm, Thickness (where overlapped): 6.3mm, Length (as found): 69.5mm, …

Iron ring. A wrought iron ring of indeterminate section, with a cracked corroding and delaminating surface. The surface condition argues for an object of some age, though the mass indicates survival of the metal core despite an unsympathetic burial environment. The suggested dating takes account of these features. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1800. Diameter: 75mm, Thickness: 9.5mm, Weight: 63.05gms

Steel and bone penknife. A folding pocket knife with at least two blades confined between metal plates with outer round-ended flat handle plates of polished bone attached by three rivets on either side. The corrosion of the blades and inner fittings is beginning to promote the 'explosion' of the object as its halves are forced apart. Suggested date: Modern, 1900-1940. Length: 87mm, Width: 17.6mm, Thickness: 9.0mm, Weight: 29.06gms.

An incomplete iron leg from a tripod cauldron, dating to the Medieval period (c. AD 1150-1450). The leg is cylindrical in shape tapering to a pointed and slightly flared foot. The end opposite the foot shows an L-shaped break where it would once have been attached to the main body of the cauldron. The leg shows signs of corrosion. The overall dimensions are as follows: 109.08mm in length, 28.3mm in width, 24.07mm in thickness, the object was too heavy for the scales to accurately measure the weight.

Object type: PURSE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete iron purse bar of medieval date, c.AD 1500 - 1650, now quite corroded. Williams Class C. The suspension loop is an elongated oval with an ovate section and expands into a triple banded collar. Below the collar is a narrow circular shaft, around which the purse bar is fitted, which terminates in a bulbous knop. The bar is short and ovate, narrowing to either end from which short circular sectioned arms extend. This object was found on the surface of a plouged field and appears to be the first complete iron purse bar recorded on the PAS database.

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: County Durham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An unidentified, cast iron object, possibly a crossbow bolt or arrowhead. The object is sub-cylindrical in cross-section. It is 55.30mm long and 14.90mm in diameter at its thickest point and weighs 31.91g. There is possible evidence of a narrow point of square sub-section although this may be incidental due to corrosion. The object has an orange-brown patina but is so badly corroded and delaminated as to make accurate identification impossible.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron unidentified object. A probably round section wrought iron bar with a sharp turn at one end, probably forming a narrow open loop [now filled by corrosion] through which passed a curved iron object of diameter c.4.5mm, probably one end of a light chain link. The mass of the object suggests fairly good survival of the metal core. The other end is broken, or has at least lost flakes of corrosion; its tapered form might suggest this is close to the end of the object, though this could equally result from its post-depositional breakage. A function related to the suspension of another o…

Iron and copper alloy unidentified object. A wrought iron shank of round section, tapered towards each of its [surviving] ends, and with seven apparently D-section bands of copper alloy of width c.3.5mm slipped over its middle part. Some sharp spurs project from under these, and may represent an outer layer which is otherwise lost. One of the ends appears bent or angled. This may have served as a grip for a tool or implement, though a gas supply fitting might share most of these characteristics. The mass indicates good survival of the metal core, and hence, probably, a relatively recen…

Record ID: HAMP-A280DA
Object type: CANNON BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A post-medieval spherical iron cannon ball of uncertain post-medieval date. The object weighs 430 g and measures 50.4 mm in diameter. The surface is pitted and brown in colour, with patches of orange corrosion in many areas. H. L. Blackmore (1976, 392ff.) suggests that this ball might have been fired from a post-medieval 'falconet' cannon. As this type endured from the later 16th century through the following century, with slight fluctuations in its diameter and weight of shot, a relatively wide date range is offered, c.1575-1700.

A complete late Medieval iron annular shoe buckle still attatched to leather strap, dating to the 14th-15th century. The buckle is circular in both profile and section, with the pin attached by a hinge. The leather strap is conected to the buckle either side of the buckle pin. Similar buckles are illustrated in Egan & Pritchard (1991:57) where they are described as shoe buckles and they were excavated from contexts dating late 14th - early 15th century and in Egan (2005:34) dated 1650-1700, however this is described as residual. Egan (2005:34) writes "shoe buckles are first contin…
