Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper-alloy fragment from the tip of a projectile of uncertain date (c. 2350 BC - 1600 AD). The fragment is triangular in profile. It has a faceted mid-rib, making the object hexagonal in section, with blades extending to either side. The surface of the object and the edges of the blade are chipped and worn and it carries a shiny dark brown patina. Not enough of the object remains to allow a certain identification, although it is likely to have been from a socketed arrowhead or spearhead. The faceting of the midrib may suggest a later, perhaps medieval date as earlier projectile point…

An extremely corroded cast copper-alloy probable harness pendant, likely dating to the 12-14th centuries. Circular in form with a slightly offset suspension loop, now severely bent. All detail illegible, possibly a central standing figure on the obverse. The pendant fits Griffiths type 5.

Similar examples on the PAS also have a range of dates, the date has therefore been…

Lead possible game piece. A small oval fragment with two moulded cabled ribs in a cruciform pattern, with a deeply impressed line parallel to one of the ribs and cutting the other as it passes over. The object is patinated on this side, but the plain back is grey and smooth. The ephemeral nature of the object and its simple surface marking might be apt to use as a game piece, a class of object often casually improvised from scrap.
