A tooth, probably a fox canine, which appears to have a zig zag line incised on the root where it meets the tooth. The double chevron looks like a W. Images of other fox teeth do sometimes show naturally occuring grooves, but none appear to have evenly spaced zigzag lines which appear to have been made by human agency. The tooth is also worn and smooth, perhaps suggesting it has been curated.

A 17th century silver seal matrix. The matrix has a complex openwork handle and a conical hexagonal body. The apex loop is broken. The face of the matrix is oval and measures 14.52mm x 16.49mm. The design shows a tree, or a plant with flowers, with an interlacing root system, between the initials WS. The same initials also appear, inscribed, on the upper face of the seal in opposed positions. On the seal itself the letter S would appear reversed, so that it is unclear if the seal belonged to SW or WS.

The enamel on the pendant does not survive well and the details are not clear. One bird apears to have a green body and the other a red body; both beaks are red. This design is very unusual for a harness pendant.

A worn and bent silver sixpence of William III (AD 1694-1702). The coin is in poor condition with much wear however this is probably purposeful; the left and right sides of the obverse have been bent, forward on the left and back on the right; this indicates that the coin was probably used as a love token. Love tokens are usually made from silver (and occasionally gold) coins, often being rubbed smooth and bent in the fashion seen here. Due to the wear of the coin a more precise issue date cannot be given. Spink (2006) 3525.

Part of a cast lead alloy, toy gun of late Post-Medieval or Modern date, probably AD 1850 - 1900. Only the stock survives; the rest has broken away and is missing. The stock is hollow cast, becoming solid at the break, where the trigger guard would have been. The lower portion of the stock has scrolled floral designs on either side while the upper stock, which protrudes from a mouth-like moulding, is decorated with cross hatching. Toy guns were popular from the late 17th century and some examples even fired. This is probably a late example dating from about AD 1850- 1900. It has a cr…

Large cast copper alloy stud dating from the medieval or post-medieval period, that is c. AD1200-1700. Even though the stud is complete and virtually undamaged it is difficult to date due to the lack of decoration and features. It has a plain domed/hemispherical head which still retains soil and a short, spiky pin with a square cross-section. The most likely date for this artefact seems to be broadly medieval or post-medieval.

The wheel is also made from cast copper alloy, with a crimped outer edge that would have resulted in a rolled zig-zag pattern. The wheel is in good condition with a smooth greenish-brown patina. There is a central perforation that the short 'axle' of the jigger went through and where it was held in place. It is decorated with four simple punched ring-and-dot motifs on each side.

Object type: ROWEL SPUR
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probably Post-Medieval copper alloy spur rowel in the form of a star. It has five oval cross-section fleur-de-lis shaped points extending beyond a central perforation 3.26mm in diameter. Between each point is a decorative groove, all five also in star-formation. Much of the original patina is missing, but where it survives (around the central perforation) it is dark green and smooth. Read suggests a date between 1600 and 1660 for this style of spur rowel (2001, pp.61, 66; no.516). Measures 52.96x47.56x3.35mm and weighs 9.95g.
