Copper-alloy disc, 27 mm in diameter and 4 mm thick. In the centre of one face is a circular boss 8 mm in diameter, surrounded by a broad groove. There is a border around with relief decoration of eight stylised leaves, probably derived from acanthus leaf ornament. The other face is flat and undecorated with no apparent means of attachment. The decoration looks broadly neo-classical and so the object is probably 18th century, but its function is uncertain. 19.24g.

Unidentified object made from copper alloy, in form very similar to the 'lyre-shaped' buckles used in the 15th century. It is openwork and roughly oval in outline. One end has a basically rectangular perforation and the other end has two oval perforations; these combine to form the 'lyre' shape. One of the short edges of the rectangular perforation (nearest the ovals) is incurved and has rounded corners. Beyond the two oval perforations is a terminal, now probably incomplete, formed from two back-to-back scrolls with a triangular perforation in between. There are two other areas o…

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.

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.

Unidentified object made from bone, ivory or antler, with ring-and-dot decoration. It is biconvex in cross-section, with one face being slightly more curved than the other. One end is basically rectangular, 32.5 x 27 mm, and each long side of this rectangle has a central V-shaped cut-out flanked by semi-circular cut-outs. Each face is decorated with 19-20 unevenly spaced ring-and-dot motifs. One corner is certainly complete; from this, a long rod extends parallel to the long edge of the rectangle, increasing the length of the object to 85 mm. The rod is 6 mm wide, and is mainly pa…

Unidentified object made from copper alloy. It consists of a long rod, 3.5 mm square in cross-section and with the corners bevelled; one end is broken and the other end terminates in an animal's head and a junction with a second missing element. There is a gently curving bend both downwards and sideways before the break, which has apparently caused no stress to the metal; it is hard to see if this is original or not, although the fact that the terminal end is also slightly downcurving might indicate that at least part is original. It is perhaps easiest to describe the decoration fro…

Record ID: SF9177
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified object made from copper alloy. It is basically 5 mm square in cross-section, although the corners have been cut off leaving narrow facets. Two of the facets have fine transverse lines across them. One end is cut off at a slight angle, leaving a lip on one edge as if the cutting instrument were lifted off too quickly. The other end isa stubby cone. The object appears complete, but is only 15 mm long, so although it looks like a pencil it is rather short for this purpose. It is well made, and now has an even dark brown patina. Date and function unknown.

Fragment of cast copper alloy. The fragment is curved, with two parallel bands of rounded convex moulding on the exterior; both bands have damage to them (hammer marks) and between these the metal is rough. The interior has a series of parallel flat facets, striations and hollows, set perpendicular to the mouldings on the exterior. All the edges have fresh unworn breaks, indicating that the metal is quite brittle. The metal is patinated a dark green all over, including the breaks. Length perpendicular to mouldings, 7 mm. Width parallel to mouldings, 28 mm. Thickness 4 mm. It is …

Gilded copper-alloy oval disc, now very corroded, measuring 39 x 35 mm. Very slightly convex, it is decorated on the outer face with a border of circular stamps, running all of the way around the edge and enclosing seven transverse rows of similar stamps. There are no stamps at the top - at least one if not two rows are missing - and here there is a roughly cut, or perhaps worn, oblique oval hole. This seems to have neater edges on the reverse, and so may have been cut from this side. The decoration dates it to the medieval period. This object is about the right size for a horse-h…

Unidentified object. Made from lead, it is roughly circular but all its edges may be broken. It is slightly dished, and on the convex face is a raised circle 13 mm in diameter in which is a relief mark, perhaps a W with a horizontal line through it, or perhaps a pair of Xs. On the concave face, opposite the mark, is a sunken square measuring 3 x 5 mm. It has been suggested that this might be the base of a pewter vessel, and Roman, but no parallel has been found.

Narrow copper-alloy spike, circular in cross-section and tapering from 3 mm in diameter at the wider end. A transverse slot 2 mm wide has been formed near this end, pushing the metal out slightly to either side. There is also a tiny projection from the centre of the wider end. Although it is now worn and corroded, there are traces of gilding on the surface. The wear and corrosion make it difficult to tell if the wider end is original or broken; the projection may suggest that it is original. The condition has also revealed some fine longitudinal ridges which may be the result of t…

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified object made from copper alloy. It is the shape of a modern split pin, with an expanded loop 11 mm wide. The cross-section at the loop is 5 mm wide and flat, but as the loop tapers into the shafts the cross-section becomes narrower and thicker before flattening again to the now bent and distorted points. Length as now bent, 44 mm. The condition of the metal is peculiar; pale grey with orange patches, it looks almost like iron but does not react to a magnet. Date unknown; possibly modern.

Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified copper-alloy object, perhaps a box or vessel fitting. At one end is a flattish loop 12.5 mm in diameter with a central perforation 7.5 mm in diameter; the top of this loop appears to be externally worn. An arched bar springs from the base of this loop, hexagonally facetted in cross-section; this flares slightly from 6 mm wide at the top to 8 mm wide at the bottom. The arch bends for a little longer at the bottom than at the top, meaning that the loop cannot have been used to fix the object to a flat surface. The bar then turns a right angle and becomes slightly convex…

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified object made from copper alloy, rectangular and flat, measuring 22.5 x 19 x 3 mm. It is decorated on one face with a lowered border around four rectangles; the rectangles are divided by pairs of V-shaped grooves which cross in the centre to form a tiny pyramidal central boss. The reverse is undecorated. Both faces are very rough, due to corrosion bubbles or encrustations. The edges are equally rough and corroded and may possibly be broken. There is no means of attachment and the function and date of this object is unknown.

Unidentified object made from cast copper alloy. It is a truncated cone, the larger face 30 mm in diameter and concave, with a decorative groove close to the edge. In the middle is a projection, also a truncated cone, with a ridge around it; the projection is quite short and ends in a flat perforated lug reminiscent of a button loop. The smaller face of the cone is about 12 mm in diameter; it appears to be hollow, and almost completely filled with a grey material which may be decayed solder. The cone is 10 mm thick but the perforated projection increases the total thickness to 14 m…

Unidentified object made from copper alloy. It is basically T-shaped; the horizontal bar of the T is roughly rectangular (23 x 8 mm), thin and flat, with a broken rivet hole at each end. To one side of the middle of one of the long sides (which is slightly outcurved) is a projecting bar, trapezoidal in cross-section, which runs down to join a similar bar. The junction is circular in cross-section, 5.5 mm in diameter, and is decorated with two circumferential grooves above a slightly expanded rounded end. The top of the second bar appears to be broken, so the object could originally…
