A fragment of a foot ring from a cast copper-alloy ewer, flagon or candle holder. The fragment is 75 mm in length, 30 mm deep or wide and 2 mm in thickness and weighing 22.2 g. The fragment has been flattened, with a height of 15 mm, and twisted but the curvature suggests a diameter of around 100 mm. The underside is rough and pitted from the casting process and the outer or lower edge is worn through use. The lower band is 13 mm deep and decorated with six incised vertical lines forming a 13 mm wide central band with two pairs of narrower bands, 4 mm wide, on either side. When the foo…

A rim fragment from a cast copper alloy cauldron. The fragment is 123 mm in width, 51 mm in height and 3.5 mm thick, widening to 5 mm thick at the rim and a weight of 161.9 g. The rim is out-turned and bevelled on its inner edge; the outer edge is flattened, partly by filing away the surplus metal after casting. The curvature of the rim suggests that it would have been 280 mm in diameter which falls comfortably within the normal range for a cauldron and suggests a vessel with a capacity of between 4½ and 6 gallons. The outer surface is rough and mostly covered in black burnt organic m…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Schist spindle whorl, circular in plan and biconical in profile with a central perforation that is 9 mm in diameter and 9 mm deep and slightly waisted in profile. The centre of the whorl is 9 mm in thickness and it tapers to a narrow edge which is on average about 4 mm thick. The schist is grey in colour with small specks of reflective mica and darker platy elongated minerals which could be hornblende or graphite as these are typical inclusions. The edges of the whorl have broken away through wear or damage, as the schist fractures along its planar layers. The surface is pitted and cra…

Fragment of a cast copper alloy buckle frame, with two ogival edges on either side of a triangular protrusion, that suggest that these form part of the exterior of one loop. The frame extends outwards and may have terminated in ovoid knops, now missing, seen on trapezoidal buckle frames. The original surface of the fragment has mainly worn off but there is a deliberate longitudinal linear groove, typical of asymmetrical buckle frames, in the upper face that appears to continue along the length of the frame. At the back of this part of the frame there is a patch of black lacquer which s…

An incomplete cast copper alloy Roman enamelled developed T-shaped hinged brooch. The terminals of both wings in the cross bar have mostly corroded away and a small central recess on top of the head suggests that it may have once had a head tab. Inside the tubular wings are the remains of the iron spindle and between them at the back of the head the copper alloy hinge survives that would have attached to the pin, now missing. The bow tapers down towards the foot which is now lost along with the catchplate. The front of the bow has a recessed central diamond inlaid with red enamel that …

A cast copper alloy Moroccan one falus coin. The obverse has a raised design of the Star of David with a pellet at its centre. The reverse is worn and corroded but there appear to be parts of the letters of the mint above the numerals 12 in the centre. The broken ends of the casting sprues are still present to either side of the coin showing it was made from a strip of brass. Minted in the reigns of Abd Al-Rahman II or Muhammad XVII, between AH 1238-1290 or AD 1822-1873. Besly (1997) illustrates an example of a similar 3 Fals coin dating from 1286 or 1869-1870, on page 41, no.113.

A base silver contemporary copy of a silver Roman denarius of Hadrian (AD 117-138), dating from the period AD 134-138 (Reece period 6). PIETAS AVG reverse type depicting Pietas draped, seated left on throne, holding patera in extended right hand and sceptre in left. Mint of Rome. Copying Cf. BMC Vol.III, p.327, pl.60, fig.13, no.690; RIC II, p.370, no.260d. The coin appears to be a copy, judging from the lettering, particularly the misshapen O in COS on the obverse and the V of AVG on the reverse, which is of curiously curvy style, and would not happen on a genuine coin (David Holman…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete cast copper alloy Roman seal box, lozenge-shaped in plan with an enamelled lid, a circular hinge which allowed the lid to be raised from the base which extends into the neck and head of a zoomorphic terminal. The upper plate of the lid is decorated with a central diagonal cross of blue enamel which divides four lozenges of red enamel. There appears to be a pattern within each lozenge, but the surface is quite pitted so it is unclear whether these are divided cells for the enamel or just corrosion. The hinge at one end of the box is perpendicular to the lid, and an extension …
