A decorated lead alloy disc, probably a Post Medieval lead alloy biface token, c. AD 1550-1800. One face seems to have been decorated with a bust facing right with either stylised hair or a crown emanating behind head left. The other face seems to have been decorated with either a series of initials and numbers or related decoration, now made unclear by severe surface wear. The object has been pierced through its centre but it is unclear from which face. This object is slightly unusual for tokens from this area; it is possible that the object was used for a slightly different purpose.

Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large Post Medieval uniface lead alloy token, dating from c. AD 1550-1800. The token is decorated on one face with the initials 'HI'. The other face is blank. Lead tokens were easy to produce and widely distributed; they are therefore difficult to date outside of secure archaeological contexts. Those with initials or numbers are thought to date to c. 1550-1800.

A cast lead alloy Post Medieval token of Elizabeth I, probably dating to c. AD 1574. The obverse depicts a double-eagle with no legend; the reverse depicts a crowned rose with E R at side with a legend reading: GOD SAVE THE QVEEN. Cf. North 1991 Vol II, p. 140, no. 2062. The circumferential edge from 12-4 o'clock on the obverse has been damaged with irregular breaks. According to North (1991, Vol II, p. 140), it is likely that rather than being used as tokens, these objects were probably used as political medalets or counters, with earlier versions relating to Mary. However, thi…

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy bracelet of uncertain date, possibly dating to the Late Iron Age, 300 BC - AD 100. The object is relatively flat in cross-section, rather than the circular sectioned bracelets that are more common to this period. The circumference of the bracelet has been bent, possibly from in situ damage and both terminals are tightly spiralled into four coils that are roughly symmetrical. Although the bracelet has an overall dark green patina, the reverse surface of both coiled terminals has a lightly reddish-brown tinge.
