An incomplete copper-alloy harness fitting of late Iron Age date, c.200 BC - 50 AD. The fitting comprises four sub-ovate roundels arranged around a central square opening. An integral curvilinear strip of narrow rectangular sectioned copper-alloy diagonally divides the opening. Two of the sub-ovate roundels are pointed ovate with a central raised circular boss set within a deep circumferential recess. The rounded ends of these roundels form opposite sides of the frame for the square opening. The pointed ends project outward and are broken and worn. The nature of the breaks and wear s…

An incomplete cast copper alloy Iron Age lipped terret ring, c. 100 BC - AD 50. The terret consists of a curved frame with a circular cross-section, broken at both ends, revealing what may be a ferrous core. Of the remaining section, there are four transverse 'lips', spaced at regular intervals along the frame. The remaining single knop at one end may represent the terminal of a hoop with a junction link, like Spratling's group V form. The surface has a rough mid-green patina with ferrous staining to each broken end.

A large copper alloy Iron Age enamelled flat-ring terret, measuring 89.9mm by 80.2mm. The ring has a maximum internal diameter of 62.3mm and terminates in a pair of roundels 24.2mm in diameter which form parallel in-line collars to a convex and trapezoidal attachment bar. The flattened ring of the terret is decorated with elaborate 'S' shape or La Tene style scrolls conjoined into a moustache-like motif, set against an inlaid ground of red enamel. This design is comparable with the designs found on other examples of flat-ring terrets (e.g. NMS-30AC24 and NMS-6599B4). There is a line o…

An incomplete copper-alloy possible terret ring of uncertain type of Iron Age or early Roman date, c.200BC-AD50. The terret fragment is curved indicating a D-shaped or sub-circular shape and is oval in section. There are two integral oval knobs projecting from the outer curve of the terret. These could indicate that the terret is of the dropped-bar type, where the bar itself has broken away. However, the terret thins after one of the projections, possibly forming a bar, which suggests that the adjacent projection could be part of a collar and the second projection could be decorative, …
