Object type: RING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Copper-alloy ring, circular and of oval section, 21 mm in diameter, and now rather corroded. At one point on the circumference there is a rectilinear moulding which runs around the whole of the section. The moulding is c. 2 mm thick and measures 4 x 5.5 mm. Around the moulding is some thick, well-preserved white-metal coating or, just possibly, solder. Date and function unknown.

Lead alloy disc, 36.5 mm in diameter and 2 mm thick, with a ?copper-alloy tube attached to the reverse, presumably to make the object a mount, and filled with lead alloy. The front of the disc has relief decoration of a triple-strand border around two concentric hexagons both with incurved sides. In the centre of the inner hexagon are six radiating lines. This object has been shown to various curators at the British Museum (Leslie Webster and Susan Youngs of Medieval and Modern Europe, and Gareth Williams and Barrie Cook of Coins and Medals); all agree that it is very unlikely to be a…

Lead weight, probably a spindle-whorl, irregularly circular and plano-convex, with a central circular perforation which tapers from 8-9 mm at the convex face to 9-10 mm at the flat face. Diameter varies from 29-32 mm, thickness 11 mm max, weighs 59g exactly.

Record ID: SF4682
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified copper-alloy object in very corroded condition. It is basically a flat piece of copper-alloy strip, now a little bent, 5 mm wide and 2 mm thick, with one end curled over or otherwise made into a solid cylinder 6 mm in diameter and with a perforation through the middle. The perforation is blocked with iron corrosion. This cylindrical loop is not set symmetrically to the strip, but creates one flat face, protruding on the other face. Over the flat face and top of the loop are two broad flutes; this is the only definite surviving decoration, although there may be hints of tr…

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk

Copper-alloy object of unidentified date and function. It appears to have been cast and is fairly chunky, consisting of a ?rectilinear plate, on average 2 mm thick, with most edges broken. A D-section rib runs transversely across the plate and then projects from the centre of one long edge as a 33 mm long rod. The plate's surviving dimensions are 23 x 15 mm; it has one surviving rounded corner. The other long edge is turned down at right angles and then broken. The rod flares very slightly to a maximum 4 x 6 mm at its end, which is complete. The surface is undecorated and rather rough…

Record ID: SF4965
Object type: RING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Very corroded copper-alloy ring, 19 mm in external diameter and 13-15 mm in internal diameter. This is very small for a finger-ring and the ring is also undecorated. The ring is very light, so possibly hollow; but it has an uneven circular cross-section (2.5 to 1 mm diameter) which has not worn through anywhere, so if it is hollow either the void in the centre is very narrow or it was made unevenly. An odd little object of unknown date.

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Irregular perforated weight or spindle-whorl made from chalk. Sub-rectangular with rounded corners when viewed either from the top or the side, it measures 27 x 34 mm and is 15 mm thick. It is either not particularly well made or has suffered some damage, as it has a rather lumpy outline. The circular perforation is a little off-centre and is symmetrically waisted, narrowing slightly to c. 10 mm minimum diameter. Weights like this one are usually interpreted as spindle-whorls, but a rectangular weight would perhaps not make a very good whorl as it would not turn evenly. They canno…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A crudely cast lead alloy artifact, probably a form of palm guard, of unknown date. It is 77.8mm in diameter and 15.6mm thick. It weighs 480 gm. It is a sub-circular disc which is domed on one face and mainly flat on the other. The flat face has some deep circular holes, a deep groove most of the way across the centre, and some rounded raised pellets. It has a cream white patina and is not decorated. It is probably Medieval or Post Medieval in date.

Record ID: SF5225

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Copper-alloy upholstery tack with hollow-domed pointed-oval head and remains of square-section spike. The head is carefully made with the convex surface made up of lots of longitudinal facets with some oblique filemarks. It may once have been neatly symmetrical, but now a bit of one edge has been cut away. The patina is a dark greyish black, but there is green below where the patina has rubbed off. The dating of this object is difficult - pointed-oval tacks are known from the Roman period but are also used today. The careful manufacture of this one might indicate a relatively early date.

Record ID: SF5247
Object type: STRAP END
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unusual and hard-to-date strap-end made from copper alloy. The attachment end is broken off, and the strap-end now consists only of one sheet 27.5 mm long, decorated on one face with five ring-and-dot motifs, tapering from 9 mm wide at the broken end to 8 mm wide at the narrower end which has two curved cut-outs at the corners. Off centre, between the ring-and-dot at the narrow end and its neighbour, is a small copper-alloy rivet which cuts through the ring. This strap-end is certainly post-Roman, and may be early Anglo-Saxon; it is not middle or late Anglo-Saxon, but may be medieval.

Mystery object made of iron and also probably of copper alloy. As far as can be seen, the object consists of a circular-section iron rod, flattened and widened in the centre, bent into a U shape. On the outer curve of the U is some smooth greenish metal, perhaps an elongated copper-alloy plate, with a blob of iron in the centre which may be the remains of a rivet holding the copper alloy on. Although both ends of the iron rod are broken, the most complete tapers to 5 mm in diameter; the centre of the U has expanded to 11 mm wide and 3 mm thick. This is perhaps similar to one from …

Incomplete copper-alloy ring. About half survives, in a corroded condition with apparently old breaks. 27 mm in diameter, the cross-section is a rounded 3mm sub-square with an internal and perhaps slight external casting flash. Undatable, but perhaps ancient.
