A tinned copper alloy bridle snaffle bit mount, dating to the Post Medieval period AD1600-1800. The mount is circular in shape with a central dome and flanged edge. There are two rivet holes, one at the top of the mount, the other at the bottom. A beaded border runs around the flange and on the dome there is an image of St George slaying the dragon. St George was one of the fourteen Holy Helpers and was invoked for protection against domestic anmials and against herpetic dieseases. George was born in Palastine during the third century and became a soldier for the Roman emperor Dioclet…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper sword belt hook, circular in plan and semi-circular in profile, with a convex upper surface and a concave underside, and a circular knop at one terminal and a hook at the other. Between the hook and the body of the fitting, there are two transverse ridges on the front and a copper alloy rivet intact on the back. Between the body of the fitting and the circular knop, there is more of a defined groove before a singular ridge, but there is iron corrosion product covering potentially another ridge, which suggests that the intact rivet in the centre of the knop is made of iron. …

Object type: CANNON BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast iron cannon ball spherical in shape with some lumps of iron oxide accretion on the surface, but generally undamaged. Without the accretions, the ball is about 41 mm in diameter or 1.6 inches and so was probably fired from a 16th-century Spanish muzzle-loading swivel gun such as the esmeril swivel gun which had an external bore of 2 inches. These guns were used by the Spanish Armada, particularly on the boat the Girona, and also by the Spanish when they attacked Paul church in 1595 on the other side of bay from where this cannon ball was found. Paul was one of the communities alon…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy harness bar mount with four raised alternating C-shaped motifs on the upper face of the bar and separate iron rivets at the back of the bar at either end which are represented by the iron oxide around each terminal. This mount was probably used as a horse harness guide. Read (1988) illustrates a horse harness guide with two separate iron rivets at either end of the bar on page 185, no.1264, which is dated from the 19th century.

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete cast copper alloy double loop buckle frame drilled for a separate spindle with the detached remains of the iron spindle and the copper alloy unrecessed plate. The buckle frame is sub-annular in plan and D-shaped in cross section with an internally bevelled edge from the base. The frame is undecorated and there are patches of tinning on the surface and iron corrosion product at each spindle hole. Whitehead (1996) illustrates a similar spectacle buckle on page 49, no.283, which is dated from c.1650-1720.

Cast copper alloy double-loop oval buckle frame with a flat base and a D-shaped profile in cross-section and a simple, narrowed, central pin bar. The frame has a bevelled inner edge and a rounded outer edge and a curved upper face between these. There are three transverse engraved lines on each outer edge which could have acted as pin rests. The pin is missing and there is corrosion product in the form or iron oxide on the surface of the pin bar and buckle loop. This suggests that the pin was made of iron. There are traces of black lacquer on the surface which was used to protect the c…

Incomplete cast copper alloy double-loop or spectacle oval buckle frame which has a flat base and a convex profile. The strap bar has a rounded projecting knop at each end and is narrowed and flush with the rest of the frame.

There is a moulded rosette with a central annulet on the outer edge of each loop. The buckle is 45…

Cast copper alloy asymmetrical shoe or knee buckle with a drilled frame for a separate spindle. One edge of the frame is straight and creates a right angle, while the opposite edge is expanded and rounded. The frame is flat with a rectangular profile, with expanded sides to accommodate the spindle. The interior of the frame is bevelled and this is defined by a linear border that follows the curved edge of the frame, about 1 mm in from the edge. There is a corresponding border following the outside edge of the frame, again about 1 mm in from the edge. Between these two borders are a ser…

Cast copper alloy sub-rectangular shoe buckle with a drilled frame for a separate spindle. The iron spindle is still intact within the copper alloy cylinder that holds the chape and the pin, as evidenced by the iron corrosion product at either end of the spindle and on the frame.

The frame has an internally bevelled edge and a stepped everted outer edge so that it b-shaped in section and when viewed from the side, it has a downward curving profile.

Cast lead free-standing weight, circular in plan and conical in profile which still contains the iron rod that formed an attachment loop at the apex of the weight in order to suspend it. The iron shank is corroded and only now protrudes about 7 mm above the apex of the weight, and now measures about 14 mm wide and 9 mm thick, but it is no doubt thicker inside the lead weight. There is also a dimple at the base of the weight, that is 4 mm deep, but not evidence of the iron shank at this end. The weight weighs 494.85 g which equates to about 17.5 avoirdupois ounces or one and one sixth …

An unidentifed copper-alloy object of probable early Iron Age or perhaps late Bronze Age date and of uncertain original extent. The object comprises a short arc which merges into a straight section, with a swelling where the two lengths join. The lower side of the swelling and the two present terminals all have pronounced hollows each of which is orientated along the length of the object. Both terminals expand. The curving length appears plain but is corroded and is possibly decorated with a line of dots. The straight length is decorated on three sides with a band of repeating punched …

Cast copper alloy garter buckle frame that is sub-square in shape with a drilled frame for a separate spindle. The frame has angled corners, creating an octagon. Within the frame the spindle holds a double-spiked tongue, and there are patches of iron corrosion product or iron oxide at either end, suggesting that the spindle within is made of iron.

Incomplete cast iron cannon ball broken in half, probably at impact when it was fired. The ball is 2 and a half inches in diameter or 68 mm and so was probably fired from a 16th-century Spanish Falcon breech-loading swivel gun, which had an internal calibre of 72 mm on average. These guns were used by the Spanish Armada and also by the Spanish when they attacked Paul church in 1595 where this cannon ball was found.
