Record ID: SWYOR-136E35
Object type: KEY (LOCKING)
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An iron key (locking) of Medieval or Post Medieval date. It fits into Type 7 of the Goodall Classification used at Winchester and Salisbury (Salisbury Medieval Catalogue Volume 4), being a key with an asymmetrical bit and shaft projecting beyond the bit. These and Type 8 keys probably date from 1150 through to 1700. The style of the bow (with a bifid projection into the D shaped bow at the top of the shaft) suggests a 15th or 16th century date or later similar to examples in Bailey (2002). The stem is solid and the rectangular bit has a full depth T shaped cleft in the side furthest f…

Object type: COIN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A Post Medieval silver coin; a shilling of William III (AD 1694 - 1702) which has been reused, probably as a love token, by polishing it smooth and stamping it with punched marks. The coin has a diameter of 25.18mm and is 0.97mm thick. 4.34g. See Spink number 3497 - 3519. The only part of the coin design surviving is the outline of the back of the monarch's head, and the letters MVS from GVLIELMVS on the obverse. The centre of the obvers has been stamped (possibly engraved) with a florid W and a second letter or two, perhaps an N. The reverse is stamped near the centre with an arrow o…

Object type: THIMBLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A lead alloy probable palm guard or sailmaker's glove of Post Medieval date. The object is a D shaped sheet of thick lead. Unusually it is decorated with rouletted lines of crescents. Much of the decoration is faint and the overall design is hard to interpret, but a circle divided into six segments is visible on one face, with further curved and straight lines of rouletted decoration on that face and the other. The possible palm guard does not have the circular depressions commonly seen on these objects and believed to provide a rest for the needle, casting doubt on the identification.…

Record ID: SWYOR-119314
Object type: MUSKET BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A lead alloy probable pistol shot of Post Medieval date. The musket ball is circular in plan and has convex sides. One face is dished and is marked with scratches radiating from the centre. The opposite face has similar scratches, but more of them, and has three concavities with a raised rim and a higher point in the centre. The scratches may be caused by rodent gnawing. The ball has a well developed white patina with patches of dark brown. At almost half an ounce in mass (14.04g.), it may have been intended as a 1/2oz weight. It could also have served as a gaming counter. It has a dia…

Object type: COIN WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: City of Derby
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A copper alloy Post Medieval coin weight dating from about AD 1760 - 1813. It is for a half guinea, but is extremely worn. It is circular (though bent) and the design is the letter and numerals: "S D / 10 6" (10 shillings and 6 pence) in Roman, serifed style.

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An unidentified copper alloy artefact of unknown date, but probably Post Medieval. Though the object resembles a broken phallic pendant, it is not well enough made nor clearly enough modelled to be identfied as such. It consists of a sub-circular cross-sectioned shaft, tapering slightly to a globular terminal. There is no indication of any mounting point or suspension loop, nor any apparant breaks, but the object is quite corroded, which may be obscuring details. The artefact is undecorated and has a rough and patchy dark green patina. It is 23.5mm long and the widest part of the shaf…

County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Part of the handle of a scale tang knife of Post Medieval date, about AD 1500 - 1600. The handle is rectangular in plan and sub rectangular in section, one face being flat, the other slightly rounded at the sides. The handle is made of copper alloy, with the iron tang of the knife still surviving inside the openwork handle. Broken at both ends, the handle has a rectangular slot in the centre of each face. These would probably have held decorative inserts. The rounded face is also decorated with an incised longitudinal line along one long edge. The upper copper alloy scale projects slig…

A copper alloy knife end cap of probable Post Medieval date, about AD 1600 - 1700. The cap is incomplete, about a third having sheared off and now missing, amage probably caused by agricultural machinery. The cap is oval in plan and is domed. The underside is flat apart from the lump of iron corrosion; all that remains of the tang. The upper face is decorated with downward pointing triangles in relief, with a pellet in each angle. There is a thick border at the base. The apex of the dome is truncated and flat, and the slot for the end of the tang is visible, filled with iron corrosion.…

Object type: PUNCH
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A copper alloy probable punch, or possible weft beater, pin beater, chisel, or other tool, of possibly Post Medieval date. The tool is a tapering rod of circular section. The wider end of the cylinder is slightly convex and flares slightly, but is not as burred over as many of the examples of tools that were struck, such as chisels, pnuches and gouges, in Finds from Medieval York. The narrower end is broken across a hole, probably a casting flaw. The break is rough and patinated, but one side of the end is a finished oblique facet. This may suggest that the tool had a pointed or blade…
