Object type: SPUR
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete post-medieval cast copper alloy spur. The spur is missing both terminals due to old breaks. The broken ends are the narrowest points remaining, with the sides widening towards the crest and neck. The spur is D-shaped in section with a flat internal surface and a low convex external surface. The neck projects out at 90 degrees to the centre of the sides (the crest) but ends in an old break at the start and appears to be circular in section. It ends before splitting so it is not clear if it is a rowel or prick spur. The spur is 15.6mm by 6.7mm at the crest, 6.6mm y 3.9mm a…
