Object type: MULLER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete fine-grained granite (Roger Taylor pers comm) rubbing stone or 'muller' dating from the Middle Bronze Age. The fragment is trapezoidal in plan, plano-convex in both profile and section and represents approximately half of the original muller. It is broken at about sixty degrees to its linear axis; its remaining length is 110 mm, its width is 153 mm, thickness 60.5 mm and weight 1497.1 g. The break is recent and probably damage from agricultural equipment. The muller was made from a split beach cobble of fine-grained pinkish granite containing crystals of tourmaline, mica, fe…

Object type: HAMMERSTONE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two greenstone spheroidal hammerstones of Neolithic or Bronze Age date. One is more spheroidal, varying between 53.5 mm and 60 mm in diameter; the surface is fairly smooth and naturally weathered, and its overall shape not been modified. There are several patches of damage on the surface, possibly the result of having been used as a hammerstone, as well several more recent areas of damage, probably caused by the plough. The second ball is more ovate, varying between 55 mm and 65 mm in diameter, but has been ground flat on one side, reducing its height on that axis to 53 mm. Its convex …

A Neolithic axehead polisher or polissoir. A utilised quartzite beach cobble probably originating from the Plymouth area and possibly moved to St Buryan by the sea (Roger Taylor pers comm). The polissoir is made on an asymmetrical beach cobble which is ovate in plan, sub-rectangular in section and ovate in profile: 212 mm in length, 414.6 mm in width, 80 mm in thickness or height and 3000 g in weight. One end of the cobble has been flattened by the removal of flake from one end; the opposite, slightly pointed end, has been damaged by use as a percussive tool. The oval areas at the cent…

An incomplete cast copper alloy dropped-bar skirted terret ring. Only the base of the integral ovate terret ring survives at a length of 22 mm, which is circular in section and 6 mm in diameter, and when complete would have been used as a rein guard.

Incomplete silvered cast copper alloy Cornish Type 31 Aesica-variant brooch dating from the Roman period. The brooch is missing the terminals of the wings and of the side arms of the cruciform bow, as well as the pin and the curved hook of the catchplate on the back of the fantail foot, but most of the wings and the cruciform bow, still with its three bossed rivets, 4 mm in diameter, intact at the head, the centre of the cross and the base arm of the cross, survive. The tubular wings still hold the copper alloy axial bar, which can be seen in section at the end of wings where they have…

County: Cornwall

Incomplete cast copper alloy Post-Medieval mount with two integral lugs. The mount has damaged edges so that it looks more diamond shaped in plan but would have originally had a curved edge like the example referenced below. There are two incomplete rounded knops, one at either end of the mount. Both of these are decorated with oblique grooved lines from the edge of the knop, but the original surface is pitted and missing so the pattern is unclear. The back is slightly concave and at either end, behind each knop, there is a worn lug, 2.5 mm in diameter and now only 2 mm in length, whic…

Incomplete cast copper alloy Post-Medieval mount with two integral lugs. The mount is sub-oval in shape with a rounded knop at either end. Both of these are decorated with oblique grooved lines forming a foliate pattern. The back is slightly concave and at either end, behind each knop, there is a worn lug, now only 3 mm in length, which would have extended to a point originally. Read (2001) illustrates a similar mount on p.36, fig.21, no.308, which is dated from the 17th century.

Cast copper alloy hooked mount from a sword belt dating from the Post-medieval period c.1500-1600. The object is one of the three hooked mounts that would have been suspended from a larger mount riveted to a belt. The hooked mount has foliate decoration and a single hook which terminates in a spherical knop that is 5 mm in diameter. The attachment plate of the hook is leaf shaped with small foliate knops at either side just below the hook and at the other end there are two semi-circular cut outs which lead into two larger knops on either side of a pointed knop creating a trefoil termin…

A flint flake, likely an unfinished projectile point. The flake is lenticular in plan, profile and section; it is 39.5 mm in length, 26.5 mm in width, 9 mm in thickness and 8.65 g in weight. The flake is a secondary flake of grey flint with pale grey inclusions, derived from a local beach pebble. There is a patch of grey cortex at the right margin of dorsal face and 13 mm along one edge from this patch is the point of percussion, at the proximal end, with the adjacent bulb of percussion visible on the ventral face. The poor quality of the flint has resulted in irregular fracturing to f…
