~~Early Medieval, Anglo-Saxon iron sword blade fragment. This fragment has heavily corroded with truncated forward and rear ends, the blades are parallel and do no0t appear to taper suggesting that this would have come from somewhere in the middle of the sword. The edges of the blade are corroded and uneven, the spine of the sword appears to be flat although this heavily encrusted in corrosion.

~~Early Medieval, Anglo-Saxon iron spearhead. This has a narrow tapering head that give an elongated lozenge appearance with rounded shoulders the blades on the either side are parallel and terminate in a truncated point, with a low spine running down the centre of both side. The split socket may have been split on both sides, however, corrosion removing elements of the sockets to give the impression that it had a double split remains a strong possibility. The end of the socket is truncated. An attempt was made to classify and date this weapon using the system defined in Bayliss and Hi…

Object type: HORSESHOE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron horseshoe. A thick wrought iron shoe of rectangular section with straight squared and slightly thickened ends to its arms. No discernible fixing holes appear, their positions presumably being masked by corrosion. The mass of the object - beyond the 500gm capacity of the available weighing equipment - indicates extensive survival of metal, and together with the form this points to a relatively recent date. The width and weight may suggest use with a draught animal or plough team. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1700-1900. Length: 148mm, Width: 130mm, Thickness: 17.2mm

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete and heavily encrusted iron arrowhead of probable medieval date. The arrowhead retains its open socket. The head of the arrow is squat but appears incomplete - the squat leaf-shaped balde does suggest a medieval date of c. 1000-1500. Unfortunately these types of object cannot be more closely dated without contextual relationship as the design did not change for hundreds of years.

Record ID: NARC-024703
Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete iron spearhead of Roman date (AD 43-410). The object is in two pieces and is composed of a leaf-shaped blade with a flattened lozenge section. The tip of the blade is missing due to an old and abraded break. The lower end has been broken and separated. The end is heavily corroded and therefore any possible split aspect is not visible. This is a feature typical of Early Medieval spearheads. The blade terminates in and old break with the upper pointed aspect missing. While typologies exist for spearheads these are based on finds from graves and it is likely that this find p…

An incomplete iron spearhead of Roman date (AD 43-410). The object is the mid-section of a lanceolate or similar form. The blade is bifurcated and reminiscent of Bronze Age Lunate spearheads without the midrib. However the overall outline when complete would likely have been lanceolate. The blade terminates in a transverse break approximately half way up the length of the blade. From the lower portion of the blade the integral socket is partially retained. The retained portion of the socket is split and folded. This is a feature typical of Early Medieval spearheads. While typologies ex…

An incomplete iron spearhead of Roman date (AD 43-410). The object is the mid-section of a kite shaped spear head with an angled blade. Socket is only partially retained and therefore any split is missing. This is a feature typical of Early Medieval spearheads. The blade terminates in and old break with the upper pointed aspect missing. While typologies exist for spearheads these are based on finds from graves and it is likely that this find pre-dates them. Length: 52.42mm, Width: 33.03mm, Thickness: 8.20mm, Weight: 15.4g.
