A copper alloy anthropomorphic mount possibly dating to the Roman period. The object is oval in plan and domed with the patina on the front worn away in places. This differential wear of patina is suggestive of a human face although it is not very clear. There are some short parallel lines on the top of the head which could be suggestive of hair. There are similar examples recorded on the PAS database including SWYOR-858077 which has been listed as Roman however there are examples known from the medieval period.

Copper alloy possible Mount. Cast flat-backed plate with central aperture 12mm square which is framed by a stepped border which protrudes most markedly next to the aperture. Sub-triangular knops project from the corners and from the mid point of each side; these may originally have comprised a two part motif with a smoother apex and textured base, perhaps resembling an acorn motif. The object is lightly curved, though whether this is a significant feature or the result of post-depositional damage is uncertain. The object lacks provision for fastening; were a back plate present an ident…

An unidentified copper alloy object of probable Roman date. The object is semi-circular in plan and flat in cross section. There is an area of old damage on the top edge of the semi-circle which appears to occurred when some form of attachment was broken away by an old break. The reverse of the object is undecorated. The front of the object has a raised boarder creating a sunken field over the surface of the object. In the centre of the field there are two raised opposing spirals which are joined together in the center. Around the spirals and in the center of each is filled in with …

A late Iron Age or Roman copper-alloy mount. The mount is semi-cylindrical in section, rectangular in plan, and has closed ends. The convex surface has a large rib in the centre, with three narrower ribs to either side. An oval opening is located in the centre of the large rib, and this contains the remains of an iron pin or shank. The underside is irregularly recessed, but notably so towards one end. Traces of a white substance, perhaps lead solder, are visible across the recessed area.

A Roman (1st to 4th centuries) decorative mount/stud: The copper alloy stud has a curcular sectioned bulbous head, with an integral knop at the apex. The base is slightly flattened and has a slight collar. Protruding from the centre of the base there is an integral, square sectioned stud which tapers to a blunt broken terminal. The surface of the stud has a well developed mid grey/green patina. The stud measures 32.32mm long, and the head is 14.69mm wide. It weighs 14g. Webster (1995) illustrates similar studs, but these are more bulbous than conical in profile, for example Nos. 17…

A complete copper alloy mount of probable Roman date. The mount is circular in plan with an openwork triskele design, though with four tendrils rather than the usual three. Four straight arms project, each joining slightly off centre to create a central perforation, and continuing to the outer frame. Four knob-ended tendrils curve around the interior of each resulting sub-triangular cell and are joined to the outer frame by integral sprus. The knobs appear to be separately cast and fitted into circular recesses at the end of each tendril. The reverse is flat and undecorated. The me…

A copper alloy fragment of a larger object, possibly a vessel mount, dating to the Roman period (43-410 AD). The fragment takes the form of a swimming duck, a popular Roman motif. Similar examples of this form are recorded on this database including: BH-291876 and IOW-A8BE13, vessel mounts; SWYOR-ED78A0, a possible hair pin; NLM-8A6096, a finger ring and LEIC-EDEE81 (and others), a zoomorphic brooch. Given the fragmentary nature of this object, it is concievable that it could belong to any of the broad object types listed above. The fragment has a flat base from which the three dim…

A possible copper alloy phallic shaped mount dating to the Roman period. The object features a circular-sectioned shaft which tapers to a rounded point. At the other end of the shaft is a double raised collar on one side of the object. From the second collar projects two rounded knops. Between the two collars is an area of iron corrosion perhaps suggesting the method of attachment. There are other phallic mounts recorded on the PAS database, for example see WAW-7C0283.

An incomplete Roman copper alloy mount, probably an armour fitting, dating to the 4th century AD. The object is formed of a rectangular sheet of copper alloy with a series of five rounded protrusions along one of the short edges. There are two circular perforations along the longest edge of this object which cause two of the rounded perforations to form hooks. Between these is another perforation with a rivet in situ. The rivet has been bent on the reverse to form a hook. On the opposite edge there are a further two circular perforations, though the rest of the object has broken away …
