Object type: HARNESS HOOK
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall

A Medieval cast copper alloy enamelled heraldic harness hook dating from c.1250-1400. The harness fitting is complete and cast in one piece with a shield-shaped plate above an expanded biconical collar which tapers to a distorted hook.

Object type: DIE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast asymmetric lead die dating from the Medieval to the Post-medieval period. The die is slightly irregular in shape but with well-squared corners and smooth, flat faces with drilled dots to indicate their values. It measures 9.5 mm by 8.6 mm by 7.6 mm and weighs 7.25 g. The opposing longer, wider faces are 4 and 3; the longer, narrower faces are 6 and 2; the short ends are 5 and 1. This pattern does not conform to any of the 16 variants of the 'regular' format illustrated by Potter (1992) and reproduced by Egan in Finds Research Group Datasheet 23 (1997) on p.3, fig.2, in which the…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two lead styli of probable Medieval or Post-Medieval date. Both are circular in section and cylindrical in form with a tapering point at one end with the other ends worn and blunt which may have originally expanded into a wedge-shape, used to erase what had been written with the point. The first stylus is 4.3 mm in length, 7.5 mm in diameter and 19.85 g in weight; the second is 62.5 mm in length, 10.5 mm in diameter and 22.6 g in weight. The long, tapered end of the longer stylus is deeply pitted and the surfaces of both styli are coated with an off-white layer of lead oxide. Egan (199…

Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy Osismii type stater, referred to as the 'cavalier' type in De Jersey (1994) Coinage in Iron Age Armorica on page 8, and now known as the 'type au cavalier armé et au fleuron'. The cavalier armé is the rider on the horse, and the fleuron is the motif in front of the horse, with a boar beneath the horse. On the obverse, the head is probably bearded, shown by lots of little dots on the chin, but this one is rather worn in that area. The type is listed as DT 2234 in Delestrée and Tache's 'Nouvel Atlas des monnaies gauloises II', while the most recent detailed work on these …

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete gilt cast copper alloy single-loop buckle with a notched bar moulding and a cast and folded plate. The bar moulding on the external edge rises up above the rest of the frame from 3.5 mm to a height of 5 mm and creates a lozenge-shape in section with a bevelled outer edge. The bar moulding has one central transverse groove which would have been the pin rest, but the pin is missing. The upper plate is very pitted and corroded so that the vague pattern in a band down the middle of the plater cannot be determined. But where the plate meets the buckle frame, it is decorated with …

Cast copperalloy single-looped trapezoidal buckle with sheet copper alloy plate. The frame is 26 in length and 25 mm wide tapering to 19 mm at the narrowed and recessed strap bar. The frame is 4 mm thick and the strap bar is 3.5 mm thick. The outer edge of the frame is expaned into two right-angles with some moulded decoration between them, but the surface is so corroded, it is hard to make out any detail. There is a gap in the centre of the end of the plate which would have accommodated the pin, now missing, around the strap bar. The plate is 33 mm long, 16.8 mm wide and 5 mm thick. T…

County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete cast copper alloy Medieval single looped buckle with its pin missing dating from c.1250-1400. The buckle is broadly oval in shape, with two prominent lobed knops flanking three transverse grooves on the outer edge and a narrowed and recessed pin bar at the opposite edge. The pin might have rested in the central groove, if it was a wire pin, but they are also used for decoration. In total it measures 21.6 mm in length, 17.8 mm in width, 3 mm imn thickness and weighs 2.05g. A similar parallel to this can be seen in Whitehead (1996) on page 22, no.88, which is dated from c.1250-1400.

Incomplete cast copper alloy head of a hound, missing its body or what it was mounted on to. It is not possible to be completely certain what the head is part of and an angled concavity behind the head suggests that it may be part of a knife cap. The head is three dimensional and decorated in the round with moulded eyes and snout and incised linear bands running away from the snout at the top and sides of the head to a transverse groove at the back of the head, which probably represents the collar. Crummy (1983) illustrates a similar cast copper alloy hound on page 143, fig.172, no.42…

Cast lead knob from the lid of a lead tobacco box, sub-triangular in plan, and mushroom-shaped in profile, with the remains of the circular attachment plate, at the base of the knob, that would have been riveted to the lead lid. The remains of the rivet, which also appears to be lead, are protruding from inside the centre of the underside of the plate. The handle has been crudely made and is less decorative than the usual rosette-shaped or oval examples, but the box may have been more uniform in shape and more finished. Tobacco had to be kept moist to smoke so small lead containers wit…

A fragment of the rim of a cast copper-alloy cooking vessel or cauldron. The edge of the rim is internally bevelled so that it is flush with the exterior but stepped on the interior, with a triangular profile, which is 7 mm thick before tapering to 4 mm below. The fragment has a layer of burnt black organic matter on the exterior, but a series of fine, parallel scratches at an angle of about 45 degrees to the rim cut through this layer, suggesting that they are post-deposition. The inner surface is smooth and flat, with some burnt organic matter trapped under the bevelled ridge that pr…

A copper-alloy fragment from the body of a cauldron. All of the edges are broken and uneven and the shallow curve of the wall suggests a large cauldron with a diameter of about 380 mm, that might hold about 7 gallons. The interior of the fragment is smooth and unencrusted. Much of the exterior is covered in a layer of burnt organic matter but has a very fine granular texture, suggesting a date of manufacture of the end of the 17th century, or later. Across the outer surface of fragment is a raised decorative band or 'wire' in the casting, that is 3 mm wide. Below this is an elongated t…

Cast cubical lead die, square in plan, profile and section with impressed annulets in groups of two, within an incised lozenge, and four, on opposite sides, and the six annulets opposite the one, and the five opposite the three. Each of the faces of the die each have a sub-square recessed area within a raised outer edge. The medieval system, according to Ottaway & Rogers, 2002, page 2949, has the arrangement of 1 opposite 2, 3 opposite 4, and 5 opposite 6, which was used from the 13th to the 16th century, so this die likely post-dates that time. The arrangements are also relatively…

A cast copper-alloy open-topped thimble or sewing ring, now sub-circular in plan as the sides have come together, and rectangular in profile. The surface is corroded and has some iron staining on the exterior, and the circumferences of both the upper and lower edges are damaged but preserve short sections of the original edges: 8 mm on the lower edge and 2.5 mm on the upper edge. The outer face has been hand punched with four rows of irregularly-spaced circular pits or indentations.

Cast copper alloy pendent loop, hexagonal in plan and in section and lozenge-shaped in profile with an internal aperture that is circular and 17 mm in diameter. Part of the surface of the outer edge are missing, partly due to the crudeness of manufacture and partly because of later corrosion; consequently, the diameter varies between 24 for the rounded edges and 26 mm for the squared off sides, and the thickness between 3.4 and 3.7 mm. There are patches of what appears to be black lacquer on the surface, which may have been applied to protect the ring from abrasion and corrosion. Bail…

Fragment of a sheet copper alloy sieve or strainer, irregular in plan with all of the edges broken and uneven, but originally part of a circular object. Five complete, circular piercings remain, all between 2 and 2.5 mm in diameter.
