Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead pan weight, circular in plan and trapezoidal in profile with a flat top and sides that expand slightly to the base. The upper face has an incuse tower with three turrets and above it are stamped 'IIII' for four ounces or four Roman unciae, the origin of the word ounce, which equated to 108 g. The weight weighs 109.9 g or almost 4 ounces averdupois. The underside is marked with an indistinct triangular impression and there is a deep linear transverse groove just beyond this which appears to be later damage. See WMID-796032 for a similar lead pan weight with four 'IIII' incuse…

Cast copper alloy trade weight, circular in plan and biconical in profile, The upper face has a raised tower between three pellets, one on either side and one below, with a raised circular border all within an incuse circle. There is also an incised cross above which touches the edge of the circle, but looks more like an 'X'. The weight weighs 45.35 g or 1.6 ounces avoirdupois or 1.5 troy ounces. The sides of the weight have been filed down to makes it less heavy, which has created the chamfered edges, so it may have originally been a 2 ounce weight. The tower or castle is a common mot…

Cast copper alloy one-piece button, circular in plan and domed in profile with integral drilled shank, dating from the middle of 17th century. The convex face has engraved decoration with a lozenge-shaped central motif bordered by small pellets, surrounded by four flower petals alternating with stylised stamens of stalked cups enclosing pellets, and all within a ring of pellets around the circumference edge of the button.

Incomplete cast copper alloy mount in the form of a stylised acorn with an integral suspension loop for suspending a sword scabbard from a baldric. The mount is missing its sheet copper alloy backplate that would have been riveted to the hollow back through the small rivet hole, 1 mm in diameter, just below the pointed terminal, in order to mount it on to the leather baldric. The suspension loop would have had a pendant that would have attached to the sword belt or scabbard. The mount is plano-convex in profile with four chamfered longitudinal sides that follow the curvature of the mou…

Cast copper alloy hooked mount from a sword belt dating from 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. The suspension loop is still attached to the hook but broken where it would have joined the central mount. 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 o…

Cast copper alloy dagger guard with two quillons on either side of a central block, dating from the 16th to the 17th century.

An incomplete copper alloy purse bar with a central boss that is square in profile but more ovoid in plan with convex faces and straight sides which narrow to the arms. One face of the boss is decorated with niello cross-hatching and the other face has radiating lines in the form of a star. The boss has been drilled and fitted with a swivelling suspension loop that would have been circular in profile but is now broken, showing the arms are hemispherical in section. The boss tapers to zoomorphic heads on either side which look like beasts gripping the extended side arms in their mouths.…

Fragment of a cast copper alloy spur dating from the Post-medieval period. The short sides, which are hemispherical in section, have been broken beyond where the spur would have attached to the boot. The neck is oval in section and quite short but droops in a continuous, elegant, curve in profile. In plan the neck is waisted and widens to a straight rowel box with rounded expanded terminals. The rowel is missing but there are traces of iron reside in one of the suspension holes. Read (1988) illustrates a spur with a similar drooped and expanded rowel box, but with a longer neck, on pa…

Cast copper alloy cauldron leg, sub-triangular in plan and plano-convex in section. The attachment to the curved vessel body still remains, and the leg then tapers evenly to a transverse collar and then to the foot which has worn to a rounded end. The outer face of the leg has five vertical ribs, varying in width from 7 mm at the edge, to 11 mm in the centre, which terminate at the transverse collar which divides the leg from the foot. The foot might have originally also been ridged, but it is now so worn it has lost its claw-like terminal. The back of the leg is flat and has been deli…

Fragment of a cast copper alloy receptacle leg and foot from a cauldron, square in plan, L-shaped in profile and plano-convex in section at the broken edge and trapezoidal at the base. There is a larger central rib, 8 mm thick, running vertically down the centre of the leg, from the broken upper edge to the tip of the foot, and a thinner rib, 6 mm thick, on either edge of the foot. The foot is flat and undecorated and the base is flat with some recesses of wear. The 'toe' of the foot is not in the usual curved claw form but instead has a straight rectangular chamfer from the upper edge…

Incomplete copper alloy cauldron leg, rectangular in plan and profile and plano-convex in section where the collar has broken away from the foot. The leg has parallel sides with five moulded ribs running vertically from the broken upper end and terminating at a bulbous, transverse collar. The back of the leg is flat. The junction with the body of the cauldron is missing whilst the base of the collar is pitted with the foot having previously worn away, probably through use. The back edge of the collar, where the cauldron would have been in contact with the ground, is slightly rounded. T…

Incomplete copper alloy cauldron leg, sub-rectangular in plan and in profile and sub-triangular in section, with sides tapering slightly from the top towards the now-missing foot. It is decorated with a single, moulded, central rib. Part of the body of the cauldron is still attached to the upper end of the leg and there appears to be a pattern of cross-hatching on it that would have been created by textile or mesh applied to the cauldron interior when it was molten at the surface. There are also patches of black organic material adhering to the leg which would have been burnt on when t…

Cast copper alloy horse harness pendant in the shape of a shield with the heraldic arms of a horizontal 'file' with three vertical points 'gules' (red) in chief (top) over three chevrons gules, graduated in size from top to bottom, with six motifs 'vert' (green) between the chevrons. Much of the red enamel survives on the pendant, but the green patches are incomplete and difficult to identify. The suspension loop is circular in profile and complete. The three chevrons have been previously identified (Gilbert, 1838, Vol.III, p.316) as the arms belonging to the Lambaron family (Pascoe, 1…

Fragment of a cast copper alloy spur bar and terminal, bent in profile and hemispherical in section where the bar is broken. There is a figure-of-eight terminal at right angles to the bar, with three circular rivet holes in a row, to attach to the boot. The central rivet hole is smaller and 4.6 mm in diameter and the outer two holes are 5 mm in diameter. There are two transverse moulded bands between one of the rivet holes in the terminal and the beginnings of the bar. The surface of the spur bar and terminal has partly corroded away but there does not appear to be any more decoration.…

A chert semi-circular scraper, sub-oval in plan and plano-convex in section and in profile. Made on a primary flake of greensand chert, derived from a Devon beach pebble, with a thick layer of coarse cortex remaining on most of the dorsal face. No striking platform was formed prior to the striking of the original pebble directly on its corticated surface. A very small bulb of percussion is visible at the proximal end of the otherwise flat ventral face. The distal end of the dorsal face has been retouched by the removal of a series of around 10 very steep pressure flakes, exposing the c…

A flint serrated blade, crescent-shaped in plan, plano-convex in profile and triangular in section. Made on a tertiary conchoidal flake of fine-textured, unpatinated pale brown flint with no cortex remaining. A very small area of the striking platform remains at the proximal end and conchoidal ripples are clearly visible along the full length of the ventral face terminating in a hinge fracture at the distal end. The dorsal face bears the scars of removal of several earlier flakes and has been thinned at the proximal end by the removal of 4 or 5 shallow, longitudinal flakes, and retouch…
