An incomplete bone needle or awl of uncertain date. The fragment weighs 3.26g and has an incomplete length of 63.0mm. At the broken end the object has a sub-oval to 'D' shaped cross-section, the result of the bone having been shaped on both wider surfaces.

Object type: CASTING WASTE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of lead alloy casting waste of uncertain date. The object is sub-oval in plan and is flat. One surface is smooth and worn while the opposite face has a raised ridge, possibly a casting seem. Dimensions: 30mm in length, 25mm in width, 5mm thick, 14.4g Casting waste is very hard to date in isolation. As casting waste represents re-usable metal, it was often retained and regularly turns up in founder's hoards. It can however also be found in isolation. The object has a dark grey patina suggesting a post-medieval date is probable.

Record ID: SF-1D1A06
Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper alloy trilobed socketed arrow or projectile head of uncertain date. The object is triangular in cross-section with three regularly spaced fins, each expanding towards the inner edge and diminishing towards the outer tip. At the inner end there is a short socket, circular in cross-section. Although socketed medieval arrowheads with a triangular cross-section are found, these typically have a longer socket and less pronounced fins than this example (see LMMC, 66, fig.16, nos.8-12). Instead it most closely resembles Iron Age and Roman examples from the southern Mediter…

  • Thumbnail image of CAM-1C72E2

Record ID: CAM-1C72E2
Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead weight of uncertain date. This weight is sub-circular with a maximum diameter of 37.3mm and thickness of 4.9mm. It weighs 45.55g (c.1.61oz). 5.1mm in from the edge is a sub-oval (almost kidney shaped) perforation measuring 4.4mm x 3.2mm. The perforation has an hour-glass profile. The edge furthest away from the perforation is flattened, thus altering the artefact from a circular to sub-circular shape. Lead is a heavy but soft metal and the shape of a lead object can mis-form under it's own weight. It is therefore likely that this artefact was orginally formed as a circular shape…

A copper alloy penannular ring or ear ring of uncertain date. The ring is hexagonal in cross-section and each end tapers to a sharp point. The object has a worn reddish brown to light green patina. Dimension: 25mm in diameter, 4mm thick, 4.0g KENT-62AB1A notes that: Objects of this shape are quite common finds from Roman contexts and are usually interpreted as earrings (Allison-Jones (1989), would classify these as Type 1 common and suggest they are common throughout the roman period. It should be noted that similar objects have however also been found from Early-Medieval contexts, w…

County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete lead alloy object of uncertain function. The object is semi-circular in plan and is flat. On one face two circumferential ridges border the object. The opposite face is rough and pitted with two conjoined large circular depressions which measure 14mm in diameter. Due to its undiagnostic nature it cannot be dated closely however the condition of the lead suggests a Medieval to Post-Medieval date is likely. The object may have functioned as a palm guard however these tend to be D-shaped in cross-section allowing them to sit comfortably in the hand. Palm guards were for us…
