An early-medieval silver Merovingian (Frankish) denier, dating from c.675-750 (Belfort 5726-30). Ref: Belfort 1892: 207-8. The reverse of the coin matches those shown in Belfort nos. 5726-30 but the obverse is slightly harder to place, in part owing to its condition. Most akin to Belfort 5726 although this has no cross in front of the face. Many other deniers exhibit crosses in front of the bust. The place in the sequence of deniers is difficult to assess but given that this coin is a little corroded it indicates that the silver content is not high, suggesting the coin should be…

Object type: EWER
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Central Bedfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper-alloy spout from a late medieval ewer. The three-dimensional piece takes the form of a bird with tubular body. The form of the bird is broadly that of an elongated 'S', although the back of the upper neck has a flattened appearance. Damage has occurred at the tail end, by which the spout would originally have been attached to the vessel. The legs, which flank the base of the spout, are incomplete; interestingly, however, one of the lower legs, with a three-toed claw, was found slotted into the base of the broken spout, the claw thus resembling a foreshortened t…

A copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount, dating from the early-medieval to medieval periods. The tapering sub-rectangular mount is decorated with an elaborate pattern of zoomorphic interlace, executed in high relief, with openwork fields.

A probable Anglo-Saxon, Early Medieval, lead alloy sword pyramid; a 7th century fitting from a scabbard strap. Although the term 'pyramid' is generally applied to this form of object due to its shape normally being a square pyramid, this example is in the form of a dome. The mount has a flat circular base with two D-shaped holes extending into the body of the mount and joining to form a tube behind the central bar. The mount is domed with a flat top which is decoated with an equal armed cross outlined with a groove within which are traces of another material, maybe niello. In each ang…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pale grey translucent flint of good quality scraper. Perhaps the tiniest tool seen by this reporter, and of quite uncertain purpose, perhaps a trial piece or a sport. Long parallel flakes are struck from the dorsal side; there is a bulb on the ventral. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the curved end where the bulb is sited; possibly broken at the other. The lack of patina may suggest this object was incorporated into a sealed context shortly after its deposition. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 14mm, Width: 7.8mm, Thickness: 2.8mm, …

A medieval cast copper-alloy heraldic harness mount, dating from c.1200-1350. It is sub-square, the lower edge now curved, perhaps by damage and/or wear. There were fixing holes at all four corners. Three of these holes have been damaged, the outer edges being broken away. The fourth corner is complete and still has a round-headed copper- alloy rivet in place. The reverse is flat and undecorated. The mount has a design of a heater-shaped shield (with flat top and sides curving to a point). The slightly rounded lower edge may be to accommodate the point of the shield. Some blue enamel…

A Medieval lead alloy incomplete openwork pilgrim badge, dating 14th - 16th century.

The frame consists of a triangular headed arch decorated with crockets, and flanked by two trefoil tipped pinnacles (one is incomplete). The lower section of the frame is decorated with a radiated pattern within a beaded border. …

An incomplete quoit headed pin of Middle Bronze Age date (c. 1500 - 1200 BC). The pin comprises a large ring-shaped head with a circular shaft whcih tapers to an old break.
