Lynsted Church Finds - Path Excavations

During the excavation for the new footway, a number of small artefacts were discovered. The picture has been provided by David Wood, who tells us - “The pencil holder was found outside the south porch door, the buttons may well be from parliamentarian soldiers, but that is a guess. We need someone into ordinance to date the balls precisely. The left hand silver coin and another similar but on which the inscription has been obliterated are bent and I am given to understand that this means that they were 'lovers tokens'. I tried to bend them with my hands, but despite the thinness of the metal they are very stiff so the bending must have been carried out with a tool.
