Copper alloy strap fitting. A decorative openwork plate with an integrally cast rectangular loop behind its lower rectangular part. The display side presents a pair of solid hemispheres clasped within the arms of a Y-shaped shank with a rectangular panel at its base. A moulded line follows the medial line of the Y, and divides towards its base where it delineates the upper sides of a triangular hole in the rectangular panel. The paired hemispheres recall the form of a dumbbell button, a fastener current from the late Iron Age to the early Roman period, while the whole plate resembles a…

Silver coin. An indeterminate silver half unit, probably an uninscribed silver half unit of the Corieltauvi. A small worn scyphate flan with indistinct traces of a motif on either side.

Copper alloy bracelet fragment. One half of a bracelet made in two parts with paired lugs with holes of diameter 3mm at one end as one half of a hinged fastening, and a short pointed lug at the other end, perhaps a more battered relict of the same device. Excluding the linking terminal elements, there are nine bulbous or drum-shaped segments separated by plain collars. Each segment bears a moulded chevron around the external three quarters of its circumference, with the inner side smooth to lie against the skin of the wearer. The moulded decoration resembles 'chip carved' work, though …

Copper alloy bracelet. A cast strip of elongated lentoid form, now curled with its pointed ends appearing as if one were slightly overlapped by the other. It may retain tensile strength, though it would be grossly imprudent to test this. An incised design framed by a single line border comprises a pair of undulating lines, the uppermost [as viewed here] with scroll ends and the lower with sub-triangular figures at either end. Their central union defines a central circle like the pupil of an eye flanked by ovals. These features appear with the yellowish tint of fresh metal, which now pr…

Copper alloy, probable penannular brooch. Cast penannular brooch with a plain round section band and flattened and coiled terminals at right angles to the plane of the band, Fowler Type C. The upper or outer side of the band retains faint traces of ribbed ornament, though this may merely be chatter marks from finishing. The finder kindly suggests a function as an ear ring. In this case, this suggestion may be credible: first, because the band retains some tensile strength as would be required for such a function; secondly, there is no sign of a pin; and, thirdly, this tiny object woul…

Gold coin. Quarter stater of the Corieltauvi, as kindly identified by Dr John Sills at the behest of Liz and Chris Rudd, whose opinion was solicited by the finder. John comments as follows: 'It is one of the earliest Corieltavian scyphates, they look a bit like Gallo-Belgic D but often have these characteristic tiny pellets in the reverse field. It's essentially the same type as ABC 1764, 11 others known to date". Suggested date: Late Iron Age, 80-60 BC, Haselgrove Period 2 Phase 4.
