A copper alloy artefact of the late Iron Age, currently unidentified. The object is essentially Y shaped in plan. The arms of the Y are formed from curved flat bars which are reminiscent of the sides of a spur. These arms bend downwards at the ends and they terminate in ancient breaks. The stem of the Y is formed from an ornate and complex loop which projects from the centre point of the arms. Where the elements join (though they were integrally cast) the arms part is wider and thicker than the rest of the arms. The projecting loop has a short neck, which is circular in section. Then …

On each face there is a triangular panel, the apex of the triangle pointing downwards from the mouth of the scabbard. Each panel contains a roundel made up of a central cup-shaped depression surrounded by a deeply incised groove. Traces of red enamel remain in the body of the triangle on one side and in the cup shape…

A cast lead / tin rich copper alloy coin; an Iron Age Potin, probably of the Cantii Tribe, Angular bull type, similar to Van Arsdell number 129-1 & BM (Hobbs) 670ff; Rudd ABC 171.

A fragment of a glass annular bead. Only about quarter of the bead survives. It is 15.3mm long, 7.2mm wide and 5.6mm thick. It is sub-circular in section and would have had a radius of about 9mm. The bead is made of dark blue glass and is decorated with five trailed then smoothed circumferential bands of white glass. There is also a pinkish substance on the side of the central hole. Beads with similar decoration on the database are LEIC-70C974 and LEIC-8B5E97. It is very difficult to date glass beads as they were used throughout the Iron Age, Roman and Early Medieval periods.
