There also appear to be three tabs for attachment on the back suggesting that it is part of a larger object and the decoration on the front resembles a double eye design with the remnants of a corded pattern in …

Late Iron Age or early Roman copper alloy harness fitting. It is circular in plan with an offset attachment loop on the underside.

A cast copper alloy stud dating to the later Iron Age or early Roman period. The stud has a flat circular head with a central ring which appears to have slight traces of blue enamel. Beneath the head is a thick shank, circular in cross section with a collar above the broken tip. The thickness and style of the shank suggests that this was not a belt mount or harness mount, but rather it may have adorned a small casket or other furniture item as decoration. Similar enamelled studs have been recorded on this database, and are usually dated to the later Iron Age or early Roman period, d…
