A possible lead weight of possible Early Medieval date, about AD 800 - 1000. The possible weight is sub-spherical and poorly cast, the two hemispheres being clearly badly aligned when moulded. There are also concavities in the line of the casting seam, suggesting the lead was over heated when used. Two opposing faces of the weight are flattened and slightly recessed. The patina is also abraded on these facets. One facet has a stright line moulded across it, and possible other markings, but it is not certain that these are intentional. The object is 12.6mm diameter, 10.2mm thick and ha…

A small silver strap-end of late Anglo-Saxon date. The object is roughly rectangular in form, with one end split for attachment to a strap and the other end terminating in a snub-nosed animal's head.

The main field of the upper surface is divided into two sub-rectang…
