A Post Medieval lead alloy uniface token, c. 1550-1800. Powell Type 2. The token is decorated on one face with a possible initial 'H'. The other side is undecorated. Lead tokens had a wide variety of uses and were easy to manufacture and distribute; they are therefore difficult to date precisely, but those with initials are thought to date to the Post Medieval period.

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper alloy object, probably a Medieval annular brooch or buckle, c. AD 1250-1450. The remains of the object consist of the curved frame which has been distorted from in situ damage; on the outer edge of the frame is a notch for the pin-end. The frame is rectangular in cross-section with one broken end more degraded than the other due to corrosion and damage. The outer surface of the frame has been decorated with what originally seemed to be incised lettering but has been determined to be slightly varied incised V shapes, or a repetitive 'AVE' design. This examp…

Record ID: SUSS-081DCD
Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large lead alloy conical weight with iron suspension shaft running through it, probably dating from the Roman or Medieval periods. The weight has a rounded convex base rather than a flattened circular base as is usual; the iron shaft is bent over onto the base's surface and flattened into place. The upper portion of the conical weight has broken off including a suspension loop or similar element. Lead alloy weights were easy to manufacture and similar types were used throughout a large period of time; they are therefore difficult to date out of secure archaeological contexts but…

Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy hooked strap fitting, possibly a dress hook or hooked tag dating from the Early Medieval to early Post Medieval periods. The object has an oval discoidal head with a central circular rivet hole; below this is are two projecting knops flanking a rearward-facing sharp hook. There is no further decoration. Although the object bears some similarity to Early Medieval hooked tags or early Post Medieval dress hooks, a parallel for this particular type has not been found. Therefore a more general date range is suggested here.

A Medieval to Post Medieval cast lead alloy uniface token, c. AD 1250-1800. One face of the token has been decorated with a linear design, possibly depicting a boat or ship; therefore it may be Powell Type 6. Tokens were easy to manufacture and widely distributed over a large period of time; they are therefore difficult to date precisely out of secure archaeological contexts. Those with simple designs are given a Medieval to Post Medieval general date.

County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A incomplete copper-alloy knife consisting of a complete handle, probably dating to the 18th century AD. The handle is of 'pistol grip' form, suggesting this date, with a curved handle butt, which narrows towards the blade-end, with a small protruding point at the underside of the handle grip. The handle is comprised of two identical plates, which are connected by means of a small circular rivet at the blade-end, which would have also fixed the blade and tang into the handle. Within the remains of the handle, a large percentage of the iron tang still seems to be intact, keeping the t…

A copper-alloy gilded decorative stud, probably Post Medieval in date, c. 16th-17th centuries AD. The mount is fashioned in the shape of a cross fleury, with pronounced tri-lobed ends and a raised diamond-shaped centre which is divided by a raised saltire into four equal diamond-shapes; these smaller diamonds all have another decorative motif within them but this is obscured by surface wear. All of the outer surface retains a large degree of gilding, particularly on all of the raised surfaces. The reverse surface is undecorated, but bears the centrally-positioned cylindrical mount s…
