  • Thumbnail image of SF8839

Record ID: SF8839
Object type: PADLOCK
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Fragment of curved sheet, made from corroded iron interleaved with copper alloy. On the outside of the sheet are two copper-alloy bands running around the curve, one 4 mm wide and one tapering from 7 mm to 5 mm wide. The proportions and degree of curvature are right for this to be part of the case of an iron padlock which has been brazed together and coated with copper-alloy. The copper-alloy strips are unusual, but may be for reinforcing or purely decorative. Iron and copper-alloy padlocks date to the medieval period.

  • Thumbnail image of SF8415

Record ID: SF8415
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Iron object which looks very like a Roman vessel mount. It is drop-shaped, and curves from side to side as if to fit around the curved side of a vessel. At the broader end the object turns towards the convex face through a little over 90 degrees to form a thicker angled platform; this could perhaps have been part of a handle attachment. The iron is in good condition but is laminating slightly at the edges, showing that it is made from wrought iron. Such vessel mounts are normally made in copper alloy and have a loop at the wider top.

Record ID: SF7871
Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Iron spearhead, now incomplete. The blade is broken only about 30-35 mm above the junction of the blade with the neck. The blade is a long thin pointed oval in cross-section, 36 mm wide at the break. The solid neck appears short, although without an X-ray it is not possible to tell with certainty, the split in the socket appears to extend almost up to the start of the blade. The socket is about 140 mm long, and the split is 15 mm wide at the base. The external diameter of the socket is 22 mm at its base and the internal diameter is 17 mm. The overall surviving length is c. 195 mm

Record ID: SF7243
Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Iron arrowhead. Although it was probably originally socketed, the socket is now missing leaving only a relatively long solid tapering cylindrical neck below the blade. This neck is 10 mm in diameter at its lowest surviving point. The blade has straight sides and may originally have had small barbs as the lower corners are also incomplete. The blade is a pointed oval in cross-section, 5.5 mm thick at most, and is a maximum of 14 mm wide. The total surviving length is 45 mm; the blade makes up 28 mm of this.

Record ID: SF6620
Object type: HAMMER
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Small iron hammer-head. In the centre is a sub-rectangular hole for the insertion of a handle. One end is conical and flares to an oval end measuring 13 x 16 mm. The other end is wide and flat and slightly downwards-curving, shaped like a large chisel or miniature adze. Not scanned due to its fragility. Date unknown.

Record ID: SF6292
Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Iron and copper alloy object, probably a copper-alloy mend from an iron vessel. The copper alloy forms a sheath, wrapping right around two faces of the rectangular-section iron fragment and coming a little way down a third (wide) face. At first sight it looks like a rim mend (cf. Egan 1998 fig. 135) but the wider faces are not curved along their length - instead, the complete shorter face is curved. It seems therefore more likely to be the flat handle of an iron skillet which has been largely encased (all apart from perhaps the bottom face) in copper alloy, and with one long side no…

Record ID: SF5250
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Mystery object made of iron and also probably of copper alloy. As far as can be seen, the object consists of a circular-section iron rod, flattened and widened in the centre, bent into a U shape. On the outer curve of the U is some smooth greenish metal, perhaps an elongated copper-alloy plate, with a blob of iron in the centre which may be the remains of a rivet holding the copper alloy on. Although both ends of the iron rod are broken, the most complete tapers to 5 mm in diameter; the centre of the U has expanded to 11 mm wide and 3 mm thick. This is perhaps similar to one from …
