A fragment of post medieval window came. The lead alloy artefact is much abraded, making its original shape hard to determine. There is a raised saltire across the fragment which may indicate the direction of four strips that held diamond shaped window panes. The rear is flat.

The fragment is 16mm by 13mm, and 3mm thick.

Weight 1.7g.
