Cast copper alloy Early Medieval key, dating from the pre-conquest period up to c.1200. It is incomplete, the bow being broken. It would have been oval in shape but more than half is missing. It meets the stem in a point with a broken internal element suggesting the bow may have been openwork. The stem is very short, it has a sub-circular cross-section and is hollow; it is broken slightly at the end. The bit is a rectangle, protruding at 90 degrees from the stem. It is openwork with a central rectangular perforation into which project two teeth/prongs above and two below, facing each…

A copper alloy key dating from the Medieval period. The bow is lozenge shaped with rounded knops on the corners. It has a semi-spherical base, which then leads into a two-pronged section. The lower prong appears complete and has a octagonal cross-section. The upper prong has broken close to the handle. From more complete examples it is likely that this prong would have continued on to the bit. For reference see number 29 in plate XXX (p140) of the London Museum Medieval Catalogue (1940). Keys of this style fall into Ward Perkins' type V and probably date from the 13th or 14th century…

Cast copper alloy knife end-cap of post-medieval date. It is sub-rectangular and flat with a rounded upper edge, and narrows slightly towards the broken end. The broken end has a thin protrusion which presumably would have attached this part to the rest of the handle. It is an openwork design with a thin strip down the centre and possibly a double-headed eagle in the middle below a small incomplete cross. Both faces of the object are decorated with what appears to be foliate style design but this is unclear due to corrosion and wear. There are several similar examples on the PAS data…

County: Northumberland
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Medieval copper alloy rectangular strap fitting with central bar and missing its pin, or alternatively a possible strap loop. Most likely 14th century. It is sub-rectangular in plan with a scallop on the outer edge (width of scallop- 10.86mm). It has been squashed slightly out of shape. The central bar is not in the middle, meaning one section is larger than the other. There has been some discussion on the PAS FLO Forum as to whether these objects are buckles, as none have been found with a pin and the height of the axis bar would make it rather clumsy. More likely is that they are s…

Lead Medieval papal bulla, of Calixtus II (1119-24). Obverse; CAL/XTVS/[PP II] Reverse; [S]PA/ SP[E]; Worn heads of SS Peter and Paul facing each other Tim Pestell kindly added this information on the bulla 'Calixtus II, elected 2nd February 1119, consecrated 9th Feb and who died on 14th December 1124 (the lettering on Calixtus III's bulla is slightly different). As such this is an important bulla because it is one of the earliest found in Britain. There are three British papal bullae that have been found that pre-date the Norman Conquest, but post-Conquest examples seem to really s…

Cast copper alloy strap fitting from the Post Medieval period. It consists of a central, domed circular piece with a rectangular loop on one side and a circular loop (set perpendicularly) at the other. The central boss is decorated in relief with a lions face. The fitting would have been gilded all over and some of this still remains.

Cast copper alloy belt fitting, probably a sword hanger, from the Late Medieval period. It is linear in form and appears complete apart from the rivets which are missing. It has a thin, rounded terminal extension. It then widens to the main section which is rectangular in plan with a curved hollow profile. There is a circular perforation at the top and bottom of this section which would have held rivets to attach the fitting to the belt. Below the upper hole is a raised horizontal band as decoration.

A medieval brooch consisting of a square frame with four lobes, one at the centre of each side. The internal edge of the frame is chamfered and on one side has an aperture into which is inserted the pin. The pin is bent and has a collar of punched decoration.

The brooch is silver-gilt, and dates from the fourteenth century. Dimensions: height 31 mm, width 30 mm. Consequently, in terms of age and as …

Cast copper alloy arm of a late Medieval purse bar, c.1450-1550. This purse bar consists of one almost complete arm and the central block. The arm is circular in section and at one end has a stylised animal head where it joins the central boss. The opposite end has a narrow projecting terminal that would originally have had a small end cap to hold the purse frame in place. The central boss is a sub-circular bead with a central circular perforation where it attached to the rest of the frame. A small section of the other arm remains on the other side although it has broken after only a …

Cast copper alloy Medieval rotary key handle/bow. Incomplete, bow only. Lozenge shaped bow with four circular holes (diameter c.5mm), one in each corner. The bow terminates in a hollow circular tubular loop (external diameter 14.5mm) set at 90 degrees to the bow. The bow is broken where it would have met the shaft, leaving a broken edge. The knop on the bow presumably had a function. It is possible that it formed another key - it could engage with two prongs. Alternatively it could simply be for suspension. Two keys with tubular loops on the bow are published in Ward Perkins 1940 (r…

Copper alloy and enamel cast-cell stud from the late Iron Age- early Roman period. It is circular in plan, flat on the top (enamelled face) and curved on the base. The base is plain and shows no obvious traces of attachment or remains of a stud. The front is split into three rows of three cells by raised lines of copper alloy. This gives a chequerboard pattern. The cells are filled with enamel, alternating red and yellow. Chequerboard enamelling can be seen on other Iron Age objects such as harness equipment, for example two linch pins recorded on the PAS database as WMID-947693 and …

Cast copper alloy late early-medieval strap end dating from c. the 11th century. It appears to have been cast in one piece.

Cast copper alloy Early medieval stirrup strap mount. Williams Class B, Type 3, Group 9, dating to the 11th century. The mount is sub-triangular in plan, with a circular extension at the apex. This would originally have had a circular hole in the centre through which a rivet would have gone to secure the mount. The remains of the rivet appear to have corroded onto this and so the loop appears solid. It has raised decoration on the front and is plain on the reverse. It has one central motif which consists of a forwards facing animal head, possibly a deer. This is set on a raised boss a…
