A copper-alloy 'moustache', so named because of its shape, a sort of comedic, droopy moustache of Iron Age date, c. 750 BC - AD 43. The object is cast in one piece comprising a swollen body which tapers towards the pointed terminals. The centre of the body has a circumferential recess which appears to have been made by gouging into the metal, presumably while still malleable. The object is decorated with alternating ridges and grooves, running slightly diagonally in the line of the shape of the artefact, to either side of the central recess. The metal has a dark green patina and is w…

Copper alloy cosmetic mortar. Large cast mortar from a two-piece cosmetic grinding set. The object forms a shallow banana-shaped trough of maximum depth 1.8mm with a rounded terminal handle at one end; the other end is lost. The form is a slightly irregular curve which, given the thickness of the casting, is probably an original and intentional feature. The edges of the trough in which materials would be ground is markedly smoother and more highly polished than the base of the trough itself; the terminal is also glossed by handling wear. The published typology for these objects (Jackso…

Broad period: IRON AGE
County: West Sussex

A complete cast copper-alloy ring-headed pin dating from the Early Iron Age (c. 800-600BC). The pin has been formed from a single piece of circular-sectioned copper alloy, which tapers to a sharp point at its terminal end. The very head of the pin has been formed by bending one end around on itself so that it touches the top of the shank, which itself bends around in a heavily kinked and slightly elongated 'S' shape. The head of the pin demonstrates decoration in the form of two sets of transverse notches (4-5 in each), which are located at the junction of the open head with the shank …
