Copper alloy and iron tuning key. A solid D-shaped flat-sided handle, apparently sheathed in copper alloy, but with a ferrous metal core from which projects the stub of a corroded shank of diameter c.4mm, here taken to be the stem around which instrument strings would be wrapped.

Iron buckle. Wrought iron D-shaped or single looped buckle frame. The good surface condition and mass suggest extensive survival of a metal core, implying a relatively recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1900. Length: 39.8mm, Height: 46.6mm, Thickness: 6.1mm, Weight: 18.55gms

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron ring. A wrought iron ring of uncertain purpose; though possibly apt to serve as a nave band for a small wheel, there are many other possible functions for the object. The mass suggests good survival of the metal core, and so a relatively recent date is advanced. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1900. Diameter: 77mm, Band Width: 11.9mm, Band Thickness: 6mm, Weight: 66.88gms

Iron possible knife fragment. The curved tip of a straight-backed blade of probable V section, broken at its wider end. This may be from a small meat knife whose cutting edge is curved through sharpening, or possibly from the end of a scissors blade. The mass points to good survival of the metal core, so a post-medieval rather than an earlier date is suggested. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1700 Length: 45mm, Width: 11.4mm, Thickness: 4.6mm, Weight: 6.03gms

Iron buckle. Wrought iron rectangular buckle frame with an iron pin wrapped around the strap bar. Corroded, with some loss of definition to the frame, whose original section is now unclear.

Cast iron fragment. An iron plate with a rounded outer edge and concave sides, broken diagonally across its narrowest side. The material was tested with a magnet and responds strongly, so must be ferrous metal, though it displays no active corrosion whatsoever. A simple vegetal motif of a five branched sprig appears on the display face in a sunken triangular panel: though this appears as a hammered design, Dr Kevin Leahy kindly comments that it is cast. The back is flat. The object has rounded edges and fracture surfaces, and in this its condition is reminiscent of water-rolled materia…

Iron possible furniture fitting fragment. Wrought iron object with a small rhomboid spatulate flattened end [here of thickness 5.8mm], perhaps a fixing point, and expanding along its curved course, diminishing again in its girth after its rounded midpoint. The form would be compatible with a function as a handle on an item of furniture, perhaps a cupboard door or a drawer, or possibly on an iron bound chest. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1800.

Iron unidentified object fragment. A strip of wrought iron, apparently of rounded section, a feature distinguishing it from an accompanying group of nails.

Iron nail fragment. Tapering wrought iron shank of squared section; the good survival of metal inferred from the mass of the object implies a post-medieval date. The straight shank t may indicate that the nail was deposited while attached to timber which has been burnt or decayed to release it in an unbent form. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1800.

Iron hook. Wrought iron hook, made by bending a rectangular section strip and piercing it with an oval hole at one slightly flattened end; the other end is bent into a blunt hook with U-shaped end. The good survival of the metal core, inferred from the mass of the object, may point to a post-medieval date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1800.

Iron nails. Twenty one wrought iron nails and nail shank fragments, of lengths between 96.5mm and 31.5mm. The square section and ovoid heads, sometimes offset, would suggest these to have been hand made in the medieval or post-medieval periods. The good condition may point to the latter period, while the straight shanks throughout may indicate that the nails were deposited while attached to timber which has been burnt or decayed to release them in an unbent form. One T-shaped nail [first in the second row] may alternatively be a horseshoe nail. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1800.…

Record ID: HAMP-3A97C9
Object type: SHOT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible piece of post-medieval (Civil War) iron shot, likely a casual loss and not fired. It measures 37.5mm in diameter and weighs 136g (to the nearest 2g), which suggests use as robinet shot (which has a bore diameter of c.38mm). Alternatively, it may be from an 18th -19th century lawn cannon or a grinding mechanism in mill use (for more information, see PAS record HAMP-CEFC84). The surface of the metal is worn and fractured.

Iron stud. Wrought iron tapering rectangular section [21mm x 14.8mm] shank with a square domed head with two cut or broken corners and with a wedge-shaped tip. The manufacturing technique is compatible with a medieval or later object, while the good survival of metal evidenced by the object's considerable mass should probably point to a post-medieval date.

Early medieval iron spear head with a characteristic conical split shaft and lozenge shaped tapering blade. The blade has been purposefully bent into a curve, presumably before deposition. The socket is circular in profile, 18.2mm in diameter at the shaft, narrowing to 11.7mm in diameter at the blade and is completely filled with iron corrosion products, although the orginal socket split seam and base are clearly discernable. The blade is bent to 130mm long, with an estimated original length of around 170mm. It has angular shoulders measuring 27.8mm narrowing to a tip of 6.7mm. The pr…

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.
