Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Post-Medieval gilded copper alloy openwork mount, probably dating to c. AD 1600-1700. The mount is circular in plan, with a cusped outer edge and openwork voids defining an equal armed cross with a narrower arm in each angle,. The arms of the cross extend slightly beyond the cusped border, whilst a small knop projects from the interstice of the cusps in each angle, in line with the narrower arms. The arms meet at the centre in what is probably a flower or rose, with a central pellet. The overall effect of the mount is a double rose, although it is too abraded to be certain. Two integ…

A single flake of knapped flint of uncertain date. A secondary flake of mottled grey flint, with two small areas of surviving sandy, beige cortex at the proximal and distal ends, covering c. 15-20%. The striking platform is no longer present, although there is the suggestion of a large bulb of percussion.

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Three flakes of Chert debitage, of probable Later Neolithic or Bronze Age date. All three flakes are of a gritty, brown chert, with two being secondary, and the third tertiary. This latter flake has a single much more heavily patinated removal scar, suggesting the reuse of earlier material. All of the flakes exhibit relatively irregular flake-like removals, on one flake (tertiary) clearly struck from multiple directions. Although the nature of the chert ensures that the bulbs of percussion are relatively diffuse, where they survive there is no small 'lip' below the striking platform th…
