An incomplete cast copper-alloy barrel tap key with a bifurcate handle, which is lozenge-shaped in section, and has an arched bifid terminal on each branch. The key is circular in section. The top 9 mm of the key is parallel-sided, with a slight protruding ridge at the top and two incised lines encircling it at 5 mm intervals above and below. Between the upper two lines, on one side, is a round hole 2 mm in diameter, and between the lower lines there is another round hole, 3 mm in diameter, which are both filled with corroded iron, suggesting that the upper one is a rivet and the lower…

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy double-loop sub-annular buckle which is oval in plan and convex in section with a bevelled underside. The pin bar is inset from the front of the frame and surrounded by iron corrosion product from the iron pin which is now missing. The chape is also missing but would also have been attached to the pin bar. The surface of the frame has a good dark green patina and patches of black lacquer which would have protected the buckle from corroding. The buckle is 22.7 mm long, 19 mm wide, 3 mm in height and 2 mm thick. Whitehead (1996) illustrates examples of similar buckle…

Object type: CAULDRON
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a cast copper-alloy cauldron rim. Trapezoidal in plan, 50 mm long, 29.5 mm in width, 4.5 mm thick and 34 g in weight. All edges of the fragment are broken but there an abrupt change of angle of around 45 degrees across it indicating that it is from the junction of the body with the out-turned rim of the vessel. The curve of the fragment suggests a large vessel with a diameter of around 300 mm, with a possible capacity of 3 gallons. Cauldrons with sharply out-turned rims were widespread and common in the 17th century. Butler and Green (2003) illustrate many cauldrons from t…

Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of the rim of a cast copper-alloy cooking vessel. The fragment is roughly triangular, 43.5 mm long, 32 mm wide, 2 mm in thickness at the rim and weighs 15.5 g. The fragment is bent in plan, so that the curvature is unknown. The exterior surface is slightly pitted, but almost entirely coated in burnt black organic matter from when the vessel was near the fire. The interior surface has a smooth coating of copper corrosion and patches of black organic material around the transverse groove below the rim, which is 5 mm in depth. The rim is flush with the exterior of the vessel bu…

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete cast copper alloy double-loop vesica-shaped buckle frame, with strap bar but the pin is missing. The central strap bar is flush with the frame and narrows from 6 mm to 2 mm in the centre where it has been worn thinner by the pin. The loops are slightly asymmetrical and oval in plan. The frame is angled, becoming wider at the outer edges of the two loops, coming to a point mid-way along the outer edge. The frame is flat on the back with a slightly convex upper face. The upper and lower edges of the frame are pitted and corroded but there is slight evidence suggestive of a sma…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy spoon finial or knop in the form of a female hooded figure draped at the back, with a bundle in front of her left arm, so perhaps a figure of the Virgin Mary holding the Christ child, but the figure appears to have bare legs and is also holding a vessel in her right hand so may represent a more Classical female figure holding a water jug, which has been copied in many media since. The figure is worn and corroded and so small that it is hard to make out enough detail to identify it. Apostle spoons are generally silver or silver gilt with a religious figure forming the…

Object type: SWORD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a cast copper alloy blade, possibly the point from a Bronze Age sword, kite-shaped in plan and lozenge-shaped in profile. The broken end appears to have been deliberately cut to create a pointed apex which may have been to improve hafting if the fragment was re-used as some sort of perforating tool. This break is not typical of the deliberate breaking up of swords into fragments for deposition, which is often clean and perpendicular to the edge (Matt Knight pers comm). None of the original surface remains, as the fragment is so corroded and pitted from being in the sea, and…

Object type: FLAT AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy miniature flat axe head of the Early Bronze Age, c.2200-2000 BC. Sub-triangular in plan, lenticular in section and in profile. At 101 mm in length the axe is slightly over half the size of a standard Early Bronze Age axe from South-west England. It is 43.5 mm wide at the blade end, tapering to 20 mm near the damaged butt end; its maximum thickness is 9.5 mm and its weight 164.45 g. The sides are straight and do not flare outwards to meet the blade edge which is slightly curved in plan. Much of the original surface has been lost and the axe is pitted and abraded thro…

Object type: TRANCHET AXEHEAD
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Bournemouth
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Mesolithic tranchet axe or adze, rectangular in plan, lozenge-shaped in profile, triangular in section at the butt end and lenticular at the slightly wider blade end. Made on an elongated flint nodule which has been flaked from both faces to remove most of the cortex, except for a small patch at the butt end, to produce the outline shape of the axe. Large flakes have been removed from one edge of both faces, mid-way along the axe, resulting in a thinning of the axe at this point, apparently for hafting the axe. At the blade end, the axe has been thinned on both faces by the removal o…
