Object type: SEAL BOX
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy Roman seal box lid, lozenge-shaped in plan with cross-hatching of lozenge-shaped cells for enamel. Some light blue-green enamel survives in a few of the cells. The four corners of the lozenge shape have knops projecting from them which are now worn. These knops would have originally fitted into notches in the base half of the seal box. The sides of this lid survive, and are at right angles to the lid. Similar lozenge-shaped seal box lids have been discovered in Sutton, Suffolk (see SF-ADC726) and in Aldworth, Berkshire (see BERK-2698F3). Bishop (1996) illustrates a …

County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy Roman disc brooch, circular in plan and flat in profile, with a plain edge. The brooch is decorated with four areas of lentoid openwork defining a cruciform shape with a punched ring and annulet in the centre and on each expanded arm. The rectangular hinge and catchplate survive on the back of the brooch, but the pin is missing. Hattatt (2000) illustrates a flat disc brooch with a cruciform shape alternating with lentoid shapes around a central circle or hub, which he classifies as a Wheel brooch, on page 347, fig.206, no.1137, which is dated from the 2nd century AD.

Cast copper alloy Roman T-shaped hinged brooch with an enamelled stud on the bow. The stud consists of two circular cells, one within the other, with the central cell still retaining the darker remains of some red enamel and the outer cell retaining some fragments of brighter red enamel. The wings are damaged at each end, revealing the copper alloy spindle within, but the pin and hinge that wound around the spindle, in the aperture between the wings on the back of the brooch, are both missing. There are four incised triangles on the head, two on either side of a central band of chevro…

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead spindle whorl, circular in plan and sub-rectangular in profile and section, with a neat circular hole that is 8.4 mm in diameter. Both surfaces are pitted with circular indentations that average about 1 mm in diameter. These are seen locally on ceramic spindle whorls but lead whorls are not normally decorated in Cornwall, but this find is from Dorset and was found with other Roman artefacts. Experimental work with spindle whorls show that flat and symmetrical examples like this work best for spinning and holding the wool. Bishop (1996) illustrates a flat and pitted lead spin…

Tinned cast copper alloy double loop asymmetrical spur or shoe buckle frame. The frame has a flat base and a convex profile in cross-section. The shape of the frame is sub-rectangular and it has a simple, central, narrowed strap bar, flush with the frame. The pin is missing, together with any plate or strap. The inner edge of the rounded end of the frame has been cast into a point where the pin would have rested, but there is no notch.

Incomplete cast lead alloy cloth seal with a stylised root plant on the obverse with five stems with petals on the obverse, perhaps representing the madder root which was used to dye clothing. The reverse has four circumferential grooves on it in one half and the other half is covered by the other disc and folded strip so is illegible. Egan (1995) illustrates a similar weavers or searchers personal seal with a stylised root plant with five roseate flowers on the obverse and an illegible reverse on page 184, fig.33, no.250, which is dated from the 17th century.
