Object type: POT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pottery body sherd with concave profile and dark grey fabric throughout, with mica and felspar inclusions, and iron staining and encrustation on the exterior. The fabric is well fired and the exterior has been burnished. The curvature of the sherd suggests that the cooking pot would have had a diameter of about 200 mm. The sherd appears to be in very well-made gabbroic fabric, well fired and finished. It is from the girth of a cooking pot and remnants of incised lattice around the girth are just detectable. The sherd is of interest because this quality gabbroic pottery does not app…

Copper alloy weight. Cast discoid weight with bevelled sides and a recessed top. Encrusted, probably after burning.

Diameter: 30mm, Thickness: 8mm, Weight: 16.66gms.

Incomplete cast copper alloy single loop spur buckle with an oval lipped frame and an integral triangular plate with an intact central copper alloy rivet. The plate tapers to an extension, at right angles to the plate, that houses a circular aperture, 4 mm in diameter, that would have been used as an eye to hold the loose strap end. These buckles were used to secure the spur leathers on the outside of the foot. The pin is missing but there is a notch for a pin rest in the lip of frame. The surface appears to have been tinned originally but now has patches of corrosion that obscure thi…

Cast copper alloy penannular brooch, oval in plan and in section, with flattened upper and lower faces and flattened and expanded square terminals with faceted lozenges on both faces.

County: Cornwall

Cast copper alloy rim fragment from a bowl or cooking vessel with an internally bevelled rim that is triangular in profile and flush with the upper edge of the vessel. The body of the vessel curves downwards slightly to suggest a reasonably deep straight-sided bowl or a deep straight-sided everted rim, as seen on cauldrons, and the curvature of the rim suggests a diameter of about 280 mm. The bevelled rim itself is 5 mm thick which then tapers to the body which is 3.6 mm thick. There are patches of burnt organic material on the exterior of the fragment, which suggests that the vessel …

Incomplete tinned cast copper alloy trapezoidal shoe or knee buckle with a frame drilled for a separate spindle. The frame has notched concave ends, each with two circular openwork apertures, and notched bifid sides with iron corrosion product built up around them. The spindle is missing but would have been made of iron, which has left the corrosion, and would have held a chape and pin which are also both missing. Whitehead (1996) illustrates a similar example on page 98, no.613, which is dated from c.1660-1720.

Extremely worn enamelled cast copper alloy harness pendant dating from the medieval period, that is c. 14th century AD. It is extremely worn and very thin. The decoration can only be seen in corrosion products on the obverse surface. The reverse was probably undecorated. The loop at the top is worn away except for a fine, thin spike. It is composed of a quatrefoil plate with angular projections bearing an armorial device, the details of which are lost to corrosion but it appears to have contained a crowned capital letter W. Pendants of this type are seen as fourteenth century (Grif…

Cast copper alloy double-loop oval buckle frame with a flat base and a trapezoidal profile in cross-section and a simple, narrowed, central pin bar. The frame has bevelled inner and outer edges and a flat upper face between these, creating a ridge on both sides. Part of the iron pin, which is rectangular in section, survives looped around the pin bar, but it is now surrounded by a lump of iron corrosion product, or iron oxide. Whitehead (1996) illustrates a similar spectacle buckle on page 54, no.310, which is dated from c.1500-1650.
