An incomplete, cast, copper-alloy, Roman clapper bell dating to 43-410. It is a hollow cone with a sub-rectangular suspension loop at the top. The bell is decorated with two circumferential grooves and a ridge below the loop. Midway along the body of the bell is another circumferential groove.

Object type: BELL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small cast cu-alloy vessel fragment, probably the upper part of a bell, dating from the late post-medieval or modern period. The surface is corroded and the vessel's original colour and decoration are now indeterminable. It might be the upper part of a bell because of the thinly cast, heavily tinned cu-alloy and also, the hole which is in the centre of the top of the object. This would have been the hole though which the clapper was inserted from the inside. The clapper is now missing. The object could have been a sheep, goat's or small cow bell.

Object type: BELL
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A copper alloy conical-shaped clapper bell with a suspension loop. The suspension loop is 10mm in length and 11mm wide and has a circular impression in the centre of its flat top. Beneath the suspension loop are three tranverse grooves. The lower part of one side of the bell is missing, it is therefore incomplete. The inside of the bell contains a corroded metal deposit, within which the clapper may survive. A parallel for this bell can be found in Crummy (1983, 127 fig 143), although the parallel is slightly smaller in size. The bell is Roman in date and was possibly originally attach…
