A fragment of the rim of a cast copper-alloy cooking vessel. The fragment is roughly triangular, 43.5 mm long, 32 mm wide, 2 mm in thickness at the rim and weighs 15.5 g.

Incomplete cover plate of the box mounted at the apex of a Post-medieval copper alloy stirrup in the form of a scallop shell or crown. The edges at the side are missing, having been broken off with the bar which would have formed the rear of the box. The moulded plate is formed of six incised radiating oblique lines, above a transvere border. In the centre of the convex upper edge, there is a rectangular knop, 8 mm wide and protruding 6 mm from the edge. This makes the plate look like a crown with a mounted element on top. If meant to depict a scallop shell, then it may indicate links …

Broad period: MEDIEVAL

Copper alloy belt plate that would have been attached to a single looped buckle. The plate was cut from a sheet of copper alloy. In plan it has a circular terminal, a triangular projection mid-way along on each side, followed a wider D-shaped section close to the opposite end that would have attached to the buckle. The bar of the 'D' is terminated by a small projection at each end. Beyond this the end of the plate is narrower and has been folded backwards and then fastened to the D-shaped section using two rivets. The strap-bar of the buckle was held by the folded end of the plate, th…

There is a plain raised border around the base that is 2.3 mm in depth, and above this the thimble is covered with drilled irregular circular pits, spaced at five per cm in circumferential rings. At the crown at the top of the dome the pits have been spaced in pairs like petals aro…

Cast copper alloy thimble, circular in plan and slightly conical in profile, with drilled circular pits, spaced at around six per cm in parallel concentric circles which become more random on the crown. There is no border around the base. The thimble is complete but worn and with slight damage around the edge of the base. The thimble is of a heavy-duty type with the metal fairly thick, around 1.5mm at the base, thickening towards the dome. Egan (2010) illustrates a similar thimble on p.267, fig.206, no.831 dating from c.1400-1450. Read (1988) illustrates a similar example on p.7…

Cast copper alloy enamelled stud in the form of a shield with an integral cylindrical shank that is circular in section, 3 mm in diameter, projecting 8 mm from the back. On the front of the shield there are three irregularly shaped patches of dark blue enamel that remain along the top edge of the shield and a fourth at the point. Very slight traces of enamel remain in the central part of the shield and these also appear to be dark blue. The shape of the space between the patches of enamel at the top of the shield vaguely resembles the shoulders and head of a beast facing left with its…

Incomplete copper alloy cauldron leg, sub-rectangular in plan and in profile and sub-triangular in section, with sides tapering slightly from the top towards the now-missing foot. It is decorated with a single, moulded, central rib. Part of the body of the cauldron is still attached to the upper end of the leg and there appears to be a pattern of cross-hatching on it that would have been created by textile or mesh applied to the cauldron interior when it was molten at the surface. There are also patches of black organic material adhering to the leg which would have been burnt on when …
