Copper alloy handle from unidentified implement. Sub-rectangular sectioned with bevelled corners, swelling from a double moulded collar at one end and a triple moulded collar at the other to an off-centre double-ribbed moulding. The handle is hollow with a rectangular aperture forming a slot through the collar at one end and a smaller rectangular aperture at the other to accommodate the tange of a missing, probably double-ended iron tool, although no trace of iron corrosion survives.

Length 60mm. Maximum width 12 x 10mm.
