Record ID: NMS-91FB76
Object type: TORC
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete copper alloy spiral-twisted torc dating to the Taunton and Penard 'Ornament Horizon' metalwork phases of the Middle Bronze Age, circa 1400-1150 BC. The present 73mm diameter annular shape is formed from circular-section bronze rod which has been twisted into a spiral. The ends slightly overlap and both have been broken in antiquity. On one of the broken ends the twist and cross-section begins to taper-off suggesting that the break is close to a missing hooked-end terminal. The other end is an abrupt break across full twist and cross-section. The evidence strongly suggests th…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two copper alloy Post Medieval contemporary Nuremberg jettons. Although there is now some edge separation the two jettons are held solidly together in exact concentric register, with the edges of the obverse face feathered around the circumference in an effort to present a single edge . There are significant remnants of a whitemetal coating on the reverse which coupled with the aforementioned features may suggest that this jetton was made to deceive and perhaps be passed off as coin. Based on the faces showing, the two jettons are contemporary as the obverse and the reverse of a Nuremb…

Record ID: NMS-D4EAC8
Object type: NAIL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy handmade nail of unknown date. The nail has a large sub-circular flat head from the nominal centre of which springs an integral square sectioned tapering prong. The flat head is set at an angle of approximately 25 degrees to the horizontal. The oblique angle appears to be by design and not the result of damage and this coupled with the copper alloy manufacture may suggest a specialist purpose such as ship building or a non-spark application. The nail has an even dark green patina indicative of age, and as a handmade example it would predate the industrial revolution.

Object type: FERRULE

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy possible ferrule, bead or ring from the late Bronze Age. The ring was found relatively close to a Bronze Age chisel of Ewart Park/Llyn Fawr date (NMS-523D79) and matches it very closely in colouration and patina. The object is 9.5mm long and annular in cross section with a 17mm outside diameter. One end is flat but the other is curved on its outside edge diameter and slightly lipped internally. The lipping is coincident with a flattened cross section suggesting it has been impacted at these points. With this exception the object has a smooth moulded surface suggesting it h…

Copper Alloy Late Bronze Age socketed gouge. The gouge has a circular mouth (17mm outside diameter) and single raised flanged collar at the opening.

Casting seams are evident on either side of the gouge which are set in the horizontal plane when the flute is placed uppermost. The socket contains extensive remains of the w…

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of lead alloy object. The extant remains appear to have been crudely chiselled from a larger object with linear tool cuts present on both sides, especially around an offset sub-rectangular slot cut through the thickness. It is hexagonal in shape, one side of which has an original thickened half-chevron decorated rim, but the others are cut. All cuts are ancient and heavy blackening of the surface may indicate it has been in a low temperature fire, hot enough to cause slight rounding of some of the edges. Running parallel to the rim edge across the centre of the fragment is a t…
