Medieval iron broadhead arrow, missing the tips of its barbs which would have originally reached below the bottom of the socket. It is 75.8mm in length and max.44.9mm in width. It weighs 23.26g. The socket is slightly damaged at the open end and runs to the tip. At the open end it is 11.8mm in diameter (internal 7.3m) and narrows to 7mm just below where the head starts. Broadhead arrows were used primarily for hunting, being so large they would cause considerable damage to an animal and weaken it through loss of blood. They were also used in war especially between the 11th-13th century…

Incomplete socketed iron arrowhead, medieval to post medieval in date, and comparable with examples in Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum's Drainage collection dating to the 15th and 16th century.

Probably incomplete iron chain link in state of corrosion. The chain consists of two large oval links c.65x30mm. These are joined by three smaller links c.38x23mm all of which have corroded to each other or to the larger link that has another two links joining it (and corroded to it) in the opposite direction to the three. The only link that moves freely is the large one only joined to a single link. Possibly late medieval, but more likely to be post medieval, or later. Chains like this were used in wells or cooking, but equally this example may have has some other use. Corroded length…
