Description Clay pipes from the Duart Point wreck. All appear to be of English origin and of mid-17th-century date. Five have a heart-shaped impression on their flat heels bearing the initials 'NW'. Though the name of this maker is not known, the distribution of his mark is almost exclusively confined to the Newcastle area. Newcastle was the main supply-base for Cromwellian operations in the north during the 1650s and several sites in Scotland, including Duart, have produced examples of this stamp. It may, therefore, be seen as a marker of the Cromwellian supply-chain. Other marks in the collection (DP00/072a, which seems to depict a harp, and DP01/060a) have not been identified. Scale 10 centimetres. (Colin Martin)
