County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete blue glass bead of uncertain date. Less than half the bead has survived, but it appears to have been cyclindrical in shape with a circular cross-section. The edges of a circular perforation can be seen in the centre. The bead is 10.5 mm long, 9.7 mm wide and 4.7 mm thick. It weighs 0.5 g. Glass beads are very difficult to date with any certainty without supporting contextual evidence or diagnostic features.

County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete copper-alloy object of uncertain function and date. The object is broadly T-shaped, with two arms at the top and a long body that turns downwards at an angle of approximately 40 degrees at the end. The body ends in a rounded, abraded break. The object bulges to the front and sides slightly, just above the broken end, probably in some sort of decorative rounded knob. The arms are broadly flat and rectangular but not identical. One terminates in a triangle that points upwards, while the other ends in a small rectangular protrusion below the arm. The ends of both arms seem to b…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of an unidentified copper alloy artefact of unknown date. It consists of a curved length of thin metal, probably part of a larger arc. In cross-section, the metal is angled at about a forty five degree angle, perhaps suggesting the fragment is from the middle of a biconvex object. There are faint traces of a double groove running along the outer face of the change of angle. All the edges are incomplete. The artefact has a dark green patina. It is 30.3mm long, 8mm wide and 2.1mm thick. It weighs 1.84gm. It could possibly be part of a bell, ferrule, or other unidentified object.

County: Surrey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An irregular piece of red, translucent mineral, comparing favourably to red Chalcedony or possibly amber, 41.6mm in length, which appears to have been partially worked. This working consists of a hole drilled into one end, leaving one side split or damaged, possibly due to the hole being drilled off-centre. The other end is broken off leaving a flat face. This object may be waste or discard from a manufacture process, possibly for small items such as beads. Chalcedony was a semi-precious mineral used extensively in Roman jewelry; however stone or Amber beads and associated materials f…

Unidentified object, cast copper alloy hemisphere, oval-sectioned hollow cast, deeper internal hollow at the apex with a tiny perforation (damage or casting fault). A rectangular flat-sectioned lug projects from the flat surface of the mouth, one shorter than the other, both with a rounded and irregular probable break at the end. The object bears some resemblance to sword caps or pommels but its purpose is uncertain. Height 16.5mm. Width 29mm. 17mm thick. Thickness of casting at mouth 2-5mm. Weighs 21.49g.

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Doncaster
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A perforated conical lead weight of uncertain date, from the Roman to post-medieval period, AD 43 - 1900. The weight is sub-conical in shape with a circular base, tapering sides and a tilted domed top. There is a sub0-circular perforation from the apex, slightly curved to the centre of the base. The base of the weight has a ring shaped concavity probably the result of the cooling lead shrinking. The surface of the weight is uneven and it has a well developed white patina. The weight measures 20mm tall, 17.4mm diameter and 75.9g. This mass does not appears to correspond with any known s…

Undated lead alloy, probable weight, 28mm in diameter, 9mm thick with a weight of 52.57grams. The object is circular in form and rectangular in cross section. It has rounded edges and a slight raised lip on both sides. On one side it has also a distinct sub rectangular depression with two linear parallel depressions running along its central area. This may suggest that it had something inlaid into it? or perhaps it is later damage.

County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead-alloy weight of uncertain date. The object is circular with a flat top and base. An irregular central perforation runs through the object and all surfaces appear undecorated. The metal has a light grey/brown patina and is worn. The object is 19.5mm in diameter, 12.1mm thick and weighs 18.1g. The perforation is 8mm in diameter.
