A worn copper alloy object, 22.2mm in length, which has been folded in on itself around a lump of ferrous concretion, possibly the remnants of a fitting, on its convex reverse. The exterior surface is smooth and worn, with a single projecting triangular knop at one end, a moulded ridge across the other and a projecting lobe to one side. Possibly an Iron Age mount, perhaps originally in the form of a stylised human face (although the folded and worn condition now makes it difficult to discern) and from a harness fitting or vessel. Circa 1st century BC.

An incomplete cast copper alloy Iron Age or Roman mount dating to the period c. 300BC - AD 100. The object is possibly a decorative shield clip, although it has also been suggested that this type of mount derives from a bucket, tankard or vessel. The mount consists of a hollow tubular sheet of copper alloy decorated with three raised ribs with troughs in between similiar in design to so-called 'lipped terrets' of Late Iron Age date. For similar examples see WILT-628131, LANCUM-48E298 and SWYOR-277D96.

An incomplete copper alloy mount, probably Iron Age in date 1st century BC - AD, as even though no satisfactory parallel for this object has been found, it appears broadly similar to double eye design belt or scabbard mounts. There are two rivet holes on the back that do not appear to continue through to the front suggesting that the object is comprised of at least two plates. 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 …

A fragment of a copper alloy and red glass inlaid Iron Age object, perhaps a mount. The fragment has broken in a circular pattern following the line of an inwards spiralling groove on its outer face with a two small irregularly shaped fragment attached to the outer edge. The groove encircles the fragment and then spirals inwards culminating in an expanded lobe with a recessed circle to one side of it in the centre of the outer face. The groove, its terminal lobe and the circle are all filled with red glass, although this is missing in places within the groove. The breaks remain fairly …

A cast copper-alloy mount or stud of unknown function. The object is conical in plan with a sub-circular base and rounded tip. There is a circumferential groove running around the object approximately 3.5mm from the base. Cut into the centre of the base is a square hole with iron staining suggesting that this was the means of attachment using an iron fixing. The patination and style of the object suggest an Iron Age -Roman date and that fits with other objects found at the site. It measures 13.25mm in height with a basal diameter of 19mm. It weighs 12.92g.
