  • Thumbnail image of DUR-1B82E4

Record ID: DUR-1B82E4
Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Stockton-on-Tees
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead Post Medieval finger ring, a decade ring, dating to c.1600-1800. It is circular in plan with a projecting flat oval shaped bezel (diameter 10.60mm x 8.69mm) and ten small projecting knops around the outer circumference. The bezel is plain but on other examples there are designs and letters. This appears to be a lead version of the more usual copper alloy rings of this type. Decade rings were used for the rosary- to repeat the Ave and Paternoster prayers. They were introduced in the 10th century but became more popular at times of religious tension, in particular the 16…

Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy leg of a Medieval vessel such as cauldron or skillet. The object is anthropomorphic in style, representing a human leg and foot. The leg is triangular in section. Above the foot is a protruding lip, the foot is then flat on the floor. A leg of the same style was found in York and dates to the late 15th- early 16th centuries (Ottaway and Rogers; 2002; 2809-10) but similar styles continued until around the 18th century.

Object type: PILGRIM BADGE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead pilgrims souvenir from the Medieval period. Incomplete badge of a figure which has been cast. Perhaps part of an angel's wing from a trinket symbolising the Virgin. Similar examples can be seen in Spencer's book of London finds (1998; 159-60; nos. 176d and 177). The robe is decorated, the pattern was cast in. It is similar in style to other badges which have been dated to the second half of the 15th century- early 16th century (Spencer; 1990; 52/53 and 83/84).

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cooper alloy Medieval circular buckle. The brooch frame is complete but the pin (although still attached) is broken. The pin does not appear complete as (even if it were not in two pieces) it would not be long enough to reach the full diameter of the buckle frame. The buckle frame is plain with no decoration. The buckle is similar to those found in excavations in London which date to c.1270-1400(Egan and Pritchard; 1997; 57-58).

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead Weight probably Medieval or Post medieval in date. Weights are very difficult to date as the same form/design was used for a long period of time. This weight is circular and has no decoration. There are some scratch marks but these are from damage through use or its time in the ground. On both sides there is a central circular hollow- it could have been a hole all the way through but this is unclear due to corrosion and mud.

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead triangular weight from the medieval or post-medieval period. The weight is triangular or shield shaped. It is plain, there is no decoration on any face. It is known that shield shaped weights originated in the 12/13th centuries but they have also been found dating up to the 19th century so are very hard to date precisely (Biggs and Withers; 2000; 34-36).

Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy bar mount, medieval in date. A bar mount with a circular central lobe and a circular rivet hole at the top. This mount is not complete, there is only one rivet hole above the central circular lobe. There would have been another rivet hole at the bottom of this lobe but it has broken off. The lobe has a pattern of squares in relief across its surface. This type of mount would have decorated a leather strap and a similar example can be seen in Egans book, Dress Accessories (1991; 213/4, no.1161), which dates to c.1350-1400, although they would have been in use for a long…

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead spindle whorl from the medieval period. The spindle whorl is conical with a rounded top and has no decoration on either face. It still has mud in the central perforation. The whorl is quite roughly made and is uneven on the top. Spindle whorls were used from the Roman period through until the Post-medieval period and so can be hard to date precisely if there are no distinguishing features.
