Clay Pipe

<006> 2 type 5 bowls c.1640-60. plus one fragment no earlier than c.1660-80 (plus 2 heel/spurs) MNI 4

Clay Tobacco Pipe

A significant, although poorly stratified, assemblage of clay tobacco pipes (MNI 50) was recovered. The assemblage is predominantly 17th to 18th century in date, although at least one 19th century fragment is present. The assemblage is notable for the presence of six pipes with the initials IK; these were produced by James Kuquit of Cambridge who was active c.1713-50. Two of these have a stamped mark of a crown in relief, on the base of the heel; this particular combination has not been recognised previously. The presence of clay tobacco pipe in a context indicates a date of. c.1580+. Bowls have been categorised using the Oswald general typology (1975). Information on makers derives largely from Cessford (2001), although subsequent unpublished research has modified some of the identification and dating of manufacturers.

Copper Alloy

<134>: Two copper alloy lace chapes, or aiglets; large numbers of these objects are commonly found on Medieval and post-Medieval sites and contexts. These examples are well preserved and most likely of Late Medieval data. Similar examples are published from London and Norwich (Margeson 1993; Egan 2005, 53). Dimensions: length 18.3 & 20.3mm; combined weight <1g.

Copper Alloy

Tr. 2: Very small, probably copper alloy, pin missing its point. Length 19.5mm, head diameter 1.7mm.

Copper Alloy

SF17: Quatrefoil furniture mount/surround made from sheet copper alloy for a drop-handle, diamond shaped with a central piercing. The petals each have a raised boss and chased radial lines: 27.5mm x 27.9mm, weight 4g. 16th – 17th century in date.

Copper Alloy

<136>: Badly damaged copper alloy Nuremburg jetton, c. 55% surviving; torn along one side and in poor condition, but most likely a Hanns Krauwinckle type. These are very common on late 16th to early 17th century sites. Probably used as a counting or exchequer token or for gaming (see Egan 2005: 172 for a full discussion of these objects). Diameter 25mm, weigh 3g.

Copper Alloy

<137>: Large copper alloy jetton or token of similar date and use to <136>; Groat size, c. 30.5mm in diameter and weighing 2g, possibly of French origin and probably 17th century in date. The inscription is illegible and would benefit from further cleaning and conservation.

Copper Alloy

<158>: Very thin copper alloy pin, poorly preserved, and missing its head. Pins are ubiquitous items and this example is probably Late Medieval to early post-Medieval in date; length c. 42.6mm, weight <0.5g.

Copper Alloy

Tr. 1: Single copper alloy lace chape or aiglet similar to <134> above; length 21.44mm.
