Material Characterisation and Investigation of an Assemblage of Objects from Meols, Cheshire

Author(s): Matthew Ponting

A selection of 151 objects collected from the eroded coast at Meols, Cheshire was submitted for X-ray fluorescence analysis. Most of the objects were medieval or post-medieval and consisted of glass beads, buckles, strap-loops and other small items in silver, copper, lead and tin based alloys. Many of the glass beads are of a particular composition that dates them to the early medieval period and the metal compositions indicate a variety of alloy types typical of the medieval and later periods.
