Object type: PILGRIM BADGE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast medieval lead pilgrim badge. The means of attachment is not clear, although the remains of a lead lug survive, and it is possible that this was part of an integral lead pin, perhaps similar to number 254, illustrated in Spencer (1998, page 250). There is a casting flash down the rear of the badge. Similar examples are illustrated in Spencer (1998, page 248-252; Figure 254-254c), and these were associated with the pilgrimage to the Veronica at St Peter's in Rome, and this may be the case with this example. The front depicts a bearded face (bust), possibly intended to depict Sain…
