Object type: COIN HOARD
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
I have examined a group of 16 coins reported found at Stapleford, Lincolnshire All of the coins are silver and 14 of them are official English coins, which will therefore be of the traditional sterling standard, over 90% fine metal. Two of the coins are foreign in origin, but are of types found in English contexts quite frequently in the late 15th and early 16th centuries. One is a double patard of Charles the Bold, duke of Burgundy, a coin that from 1469 circulated in England officially as equal to a groat. This was had a fineness of c. 80% silver. The last coin is a Portuguese sil…

Object type: BUTTON AND LOOP FASTENER
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Button and loop fastener or strap terminal Cast copper alloy button and loop fastener or strap terminal. This fitting has a flat trefoil 'button', formed from three adjoining circles. The loop (cast in one piece with the 'button') projects backwards from the rear of the head, the shank starting from the centre of the trefoil. The shank emerges at 90° to the 'button', bending as it nears the loop, which is at an angle of around 30° to the 'button', in the same plane. The loop and shank are plain, but the front of the 'button' is decorated. Each of the circles which forms the …

Terret ring fragment Fragment of a very robust copper alloy terret ring. It is broken at both ends, leaving only a small section of the full ring. The ring is circular in cross section, and is decorated with a double lip moulding. There is a drilled circular hollow on the interior face of each lip, which may originally have been filled with enamel. There is a raised moulded line around the ring where it meets the lips on either side. Parallels: The form of the lips is paralleled in many terrets from the related 1843 hoard. In size the piece is closest to M 65-69, which al…

Terret ring fragment Fragment of a copper alloy terret ring. It is broken at both ends, leaving less than a quarter of the full ring. The ring is circular in cross section, and is decorated near one end with a double lip moulding. There is iron corrosion all along the fragment, which obscures some of the surface detail, but it is possible that this piece has been mis-cast. Parallels: The form of the lips is very similar to many of the terrets in the related 1843 hoard, being most similar to M.54, Spratling's (2011) style group III. Measurements: Length: 53.2mm; diameter of ring: 7.2m…

Harness fitting fragment (?bridle bit) Small fragment of a cast copper alloy harness fitting with lipped decoration. When complete, it appears that this would have consisted of an outer ring, enclosing a smaller decorative ring. The rings are flat on the reverse, giving a D-shaped cross-section. Both rings are now broken, the remaining fragment consisting of a pair of moulded lips, which lie across the joining section of the two rings. The lips are drilled on the inside, possibly to hold enamel. There is quite a lot of surface corrosion, and on the reverse of the object are the remai…

Button and loop fastener or strap terminal Fragment of a cast copper-alloy button and loop fastener or strap terminal. This object comprises only the loop section, which is sub-circular in plan, tapering towards where it would have met the 'button'. Parallels: This fragment resembles the loops from many other fittings from both the related 1843 hoard and the 2011 assemblage. It is not possible to identify the form of the original object from this fragment, but it is highly likely that it formed part of a button and loop fastener (cf Wild 1970) or strap terminal (cf MacGregor 1962). …

Cast copper alloy circular ring. The ring is circular in cross-section, although wider on one side than on the other, perhaps due to wear. This object is perhaps too small to have been used as a harness fitting, and it is impossible to be sure of its function. Parallels: Rings like this could be put to many uses, and are found on sites of all periods, so it is impossible to be certain of an Iron Age date for this find. There are no direct parallels from the related 1843 hoard. Measurements: Thickness: 3.2mm; diameter: 15.9mm; weight: 1.6g

However, a similar, although slightly larger, ring was also reported as part of the related 1843 material (M.95) Measurements: Thickness: 3.4mm; diameter: 27.2mm; weight: 5.9g

Cast copper alloy fragment of a Post Medieval drawer handle. It has a strip of copper alloy folded over through the top loop, presumably to attach the fitting to the drawer. The main body has a rectangular attachment loop with protruding corners and a raised lower line. It then narrows to a neck, before widening into what would have been a sub-rectangular body with leaf/floriate design on the front. This has broken only a short way down.

Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy Post Medieval fob seal, mostly likely 19th century in date. It is made completely of copper alloy, with the seal section being just a flat oval disc of copper alloy (measuring 17.49mm by 14.84mm). The symbol on the seal is a masonic symbol, The Square, Compasses and Letter 'G'. This is one of the most common symbols of the Freemasons. There are varying theories as to what it represents. The arms of the seal form a robust openwork design with floriate decoration, terminating in a circular attachment loop, set perpendicular to the seal.

Cast copper alloy clapper bell, Post Medieval in date. It appears to have been tinned on the surface as it has a silvery looking patina. The bell is complete but is missing the clapper. It has an integral copper alloy attachment loop at the top, this has broken so the loop is open. The bell flares at the base, and on the inside is written the alphabet, it appears to have been cast into the design. On the outer edge it is worn but there appears to have been a pattern of diagonal lines. This is an unusual bell design, as the alphabet would not have been visible so it is unclear quit…

Gold Post Medieval finger ring, uncertain date. A plain gold band, with a slightly raised central ridge on the outside. The ring has been squashed out of shape but originally but have been round. The band is thin, and flat on the inside. Judy Rudoe (British Museum) has seen an image of this ring and is happy that it is undiagnostic, so cannot be assigned a pre-1700 date. As such it does not constitute Treasure.

Rim fragment of a Medieval pottery vessel, probably a jug. The fabric is cream coloured with an inner core of black. There appear to be some small inclusions of a brown colour. The rim is slightly widened compared to the rest of the vessel, with a square shaped rim. The wall of the vessel is beginning to curve outwards but has broken before it goes far. The handle begins almost immediately after the rim, sticking out at 90 degrees to the vessel wall, but only a small fragment remains before it has broken.

Four disc lead late Medieval- Post Medieval cloth seal, unused, dating to 1400- 1800. It is complete, and has been folded in half, but not put together, and not stamped with any design. Disc 1 has the conical stud on the reverse, which fits through the hole of Disc 4. The seal has been folded at the connecting strip between Discs 2 and 3. Each of the discs is sub-circular. Without any markings on it is not possible to date this example more closely as cloth seals were used over a long period of time.

Strap fitting/ Mount Cast copper alloy harness fitting, taking the form of a ring with small rectangular strap bar on the reverse. The strap bar is oval in cross-section, but the ring itself has a D-shaped section, curved on the front and flat on the reverse. At least one circular hole has been drilled into the front of the ring, probably intended to hold enamel, as seen on many other fittings from this site. Parallels: The form of this object is most similar to M.14 from the related 1843 hoard, although that example had lipped decoration, whereas this find is plain. Measurements: Th…
