Site: 18ST704 Charles’ Gift

Context: Feat 119 W ½ , Lot 867/ FS 1013. The feature is a post-1779 posthole intruding a late 17th century dwelling area.

Context Date Range: c. 1675-1814

Metal: Copper alloy

Tine Length: 0.55”

Leather Thickness: Unmeasurable

Description:
Unidentified openwork motif. Incised lines at each pointed end create a rough foliate detail. Although the context dates the object as late as 1814, Feature 119 is a post hole that is located right next to a c. 1675 structure. This could therefore be a re-deposited 17th-18th century object.
