Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete but distorted gold finger ring set with a carnelian in an oval bezel. The hoop is 1.2mm wide and ovoid in section, widening to flat triangular terminals where it is joined to the bezel. This join is strengthened by a strip of gold wrapped round the ends of the hoops. The back of the bezel is an applied flat plate, with a central circular pierced hole. The raised oval setting is formed from another sheet of gold folded and pinched at the top of the oval. Around it at the base is a border of twisted gold wire, with filigree beaded wire above this. The carnelian is oval with a …

Object type: TILE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of tile of unknown, possibly Roman, date (c. AD 43-1900). The fragment is roughly rectangular in shape, flat on one face and has the remains of moulded floral decoration on the opposing face. There are a number of scratches and gouges across all sides. The haphazard nature of the moulded decoration could suggest that this piece of tile was a practice piece. No comparable examples with similar designs have been found so far on the PAS database. This object was recovered from an area that has produced a quantity of Roman artefacts therefore a tentative Roman date could be ar…

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead-alloy weight dating from the medieval to Post Medieval periods (1100-1800AD). The object is circular in plan and has been pierced which shows some signs of wear from being suspended. The back of the object is smooth but the upper surface appears to be decorated with randomly placed pellets. Although it is possible that this is just a result of the casting. It is unlikely that this was used as a spindle whorl since the off-set piercing would cause the spindle to spin unevenly. It is more likely to be some form of hanging weight, or net weight. Diameter: 33.5mm; inte…

Copper alloy unidentified object. Flat cast oval plate with a narrower oval panel of length 26.5mm stamped centrally on one side, to a depth of 0.6mm. The panel bears about 13 transverse grooves which appear to have been stamped or incised in its base. The appearance of the grooves and the ridges left between them is not dissimilar to that of simple lettering, though probably fortuitously so. A function relating to some indeterminate craft might be posited, though the cuts marks are neither so numerous nor so straight as might appear on a palm guard or 'sailmaker's glove'. Accompanying…

Lead unidentified object. A cast cylindrical or drum-shaped object with a circular indentation of diameter c.5.5mm at either end, in both cases stained with rust. One edge of the drum is chipped; as patina extends over this damage it is considered to have been incurred in antiquity. The markings could suggest the object was retained at its ends by a tensile clip or holder, or that an object or objects were embedded. In the latter case, which is sometimes a feature of Viking-Age weights, the damage to the object and the possible or partial loss of the additional element/s tend to vitiat…

An incomplete iron object of uncertain date. The object is roughly oval in plan and flat in profile. The object may have been sharpened at one end so could be the remains of a blade.
