Cast copper alloy stud or tack, sexfoil in plan with moulded decoration in the form of a three-layered fleuret with six small petals around a central circle and then six larger petals emanating from these and alternating with six lobed leaves within six arches that are meant to represent more petals underneath, alternating with six knops which form the border at the edge of the stud. The corroded base of shank on the back of the stud may be the remains of a separate iron rivet as it is covered in iron corrosion product so it is hard to see if this is another piece of metal as most of t…

Two lead styli of probable Medieval or Post-Medieval date. Both are circular in section and cylindrical in form with a tapering point at one end with the other ends worn and blunt which may have originally expanded into a wedge-shape, used to erase what had been written with the point.

A cast copper-alloy open-topped thimble or sewing ring, now sub-circular in plan as the sides have come together, and rectangular in profile. The surface is corroded and has some iron staining on the exterior, and the circumferences of both the upper and lower edges are damaged but preserve short sections of the original edges: 8 mm on the lower edge and 2.5 mm on the upper edge. The outer face has been hand punched with four rows of irregularly-spaced circular pits or indentations.

Fragment of a sheet copper alloy sieve or strainer, irregular in plan with all of the edges broken and uneven, but originally part of a circular object. Five complete, circular piercings remain, all between 2 and 2.5 mm in diameter. Remnants of at least four more piercings are visible around the edges and it appears that the piercings radiate form a central area and that their is a curved perimeter. The piercings appear to have all been punched from one face and the opposite inside face has black organic matter on the surface suggesting that it was probably used as part of a kitchen im…

Cast copper alloy pendent loop, hexagonal in plan and in section and lozenge-shaped in profile with an internal aperture that is circular and 17 mm in diameter. Part of the surface of the outer edge are missing, partly due to the crudeness of manufacture and partly because of later corrosion; consequently, the diameter varies between 24 for the rounded edges and 26 mm for the squared off sides, and the thickness between 3.4 and 3.7 mm. There are patches of what appears to be black lacquer on the surface, which may have been applied to protect the ring from abrasion and corrosion. Bail…
