Seal (Object)

A seal is an object used to impress a design into wax to identify an object as being authenticated by you. It was common for a badge to be used as a seal, but often more complex designs were used.

Some examples:

14th Century double sided seal of Inchaffray Abbey]

Seal (Animal)

Seals are mammals evolved for life in the water. Their young (pups) are often covered with a downy fur which is sought after by some furriers. In medieval times they were eaten as food.
