Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Copper-alloy seal matrix with socket, for producing cloth seals (alnage seals). The die itself is circular and 29mm in diameter. In side view, the matrix rises vertically from the die for about 3mm then begins to taper with a slightly concave curve to an open end 19-20mm in external diameter. The matrix is overall 14mm thick and weighs 39.0g. There are two small bumps on the outside, very close to the socket's edge, which are surrounded by iron staining and which may be the remains of iron nails fastening a wooden handle. These are not quite opposite each other; one is above the C in …

Complete toy gridiron with fish, made from a lead/tin alloy (pewter) with a patina which is shiny in patches. The gridiron is basically rectangular but slightly trapezoidal, flaring from the handle end; it has six bars of equal thickness and triangular cross-section parallel to the handle, and a similar transverse bar to either end. The longer transverse bar has a backwards-curving hook to either end, one now crushed. The shorter transverse bar, at the handle end, is decorated with oblique ribbing giving a cabled effect. This bar has an angular U-shaped arrangement at either end as if…

Pointed-oval lead seal matrix, seen at Ipswich metal-detecting club. A scan of the matrix was subsequently made available. The seal matrix has a curvilinear central motif which is hard to identify. The inscription has no initial mark, and appears to read S'AMICIE SAILE, although the last part of the surname is uncertain; the IL could alternatively be an N and the E could be a C. The inscription can be translated as Seal of Amice Saile; Amice is a woman's name. 13th century.

Object type: QUERN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Fragment of a 'mustard' quern made from imported Rhenish lava. About a quarter survives; its diameter is c. 170 mm, it is c. 35 mm thick, and its central hole has a diameter of c. 40 mm. Probably an upper stone, its grinding surface is harp-dressed and the other surface is roughly pecked. 'Mustard' querns are mentioned in inventories and wills from the 17th century onwards and it is thought that these small querns are the ones referred to.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Tip of copper-alloy socketed spearhead or arrowhead, with rounded midrib. The socket extends to about 35 mm from the tip. The blade edges are mostly damaged and worn, and the main break is patinated and fairly worn. There are recent (agricultural?) scrapes to the midrib on both faces. It is patinated medium green, with some paler green patches of corrosive products. One wing appears to be relatively complete; the side is only slightly convex, but there is a convex basal end. This side is only 66 mm long from the tip to where it joins the socket, although this must be an approx…

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Pottery disc, 24 mm in diameter and 5 mm thick, perhaps a counter or playing piece. One face has a large incuse letter D, with VIII in smaller lettering below. The fabric is a fine red earthenware with ferrous inclusions; this type of fabric could have been made almost anywhere in England, so gives little help in identification. The inscription could be deciphered as eight pennyweight, but in fact the disc weighs 4.47g, which is 2.87 dwt. Probably post-medieval.

Record ID: SF9206
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified copper-alloy object. One end has a long pyramidal terminal, tapering from a maximum cross-section of 4 x 3.5 mm. Below the widest point the object then tapers again slightly to a collar, below which its cross-section is circular. The circular shaft tapers quite quickly and is bent into a loop; it ends at a globular terminal. The object is quite worn and corroded, but it appears to be complete, and the bend does not appear to have caused any stress to the metal. Date and function unknown, but it does not appear to be modern. Unbent length c. 45 mm; existing length 23 mm.

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unusual object which appears to be an annular brooch. Four sides of an originally hexagonal frame survive, with a D-shaped cross-section; internally the brooch is circular. In the centre of one side is a projecting human head modelled in the round, with hair cut in a square shape to frame the face. The features are strongly and severely modelled, with big relief eyebrows meeting the top of the flattish triangular nose, lower-relief eyes, cheeks and chin, and a line for the mouth. A short neck connects the head to the frame of the brooch, which resembles stylised shoulders and angle…

Broad period: MEDIEVAL

Copper-alloy openwork mount, perhaps from a strap. It is basically rectangular, 24 x 17 mm, although now slightly bent. A flat frame runs around the outside, thickened at each corner to take a rivet hole; one rivet hole is now broken (old break). Rising from within this frame is an almost three-dimensional lion. The lion is in profile towards the left, with its head turned to look out of the frame towards the observer. Both hind paws and the lion's left forepaw rest on the base of the frame; the lion's right forepaw stretches towards the left-hand side of the frame. All of …

Broad period: MEDIEVAL

Copper-alloy pommel from a medieval sword or dagger. Viewed from the top it is slightly domed and almost circular, with seven slight facets around the edge forming a heptagon with rounded corners. The maximum 'diameter' is 29 mm. Each of the rounded corners is cut off by a broad V-shaped groove, and from either end of each one a similar groove runs at an angle to the centre. The inner facet of each of the outer grooves has a pair of short oblique lines cut into it, and some of the radiating grooves have a fine zig-zag or series of chevrons along the base. There is a space at the ce…
