A small lead or lead-alloy artefact of uncertain function and date, probably Medieval to Modern. This object is probably or possibly incomplete but this is uncertain. The artefact has a weight of 1.14g and consists of a thin, 0.9mm, sub-oval lobe of white metal. This lobe has a width of 11.9mm and length of c.13.4mm. An integral sub-rectangular tab projects out from the lower edge, thus increasing the length to 17.6mm. This solid tab has a width of 4.3mm and similar thickness to the rest of the artefact, possibly being marginally thicker. One top corner is twisted and folded back on it…

An incomplete copper-alloy numismatic item or button probably of later Post-Medieval to Modern date. Just less than half of the disc survives with a weight of 2.87g. The remains have a diameter of 27.5mm and thickness of 1.5mm. No decoration or marks are visible on either side of this incomplete disc. Thus if this artefact was a milled coin or other numismatic item it is now extremely worn and completely illegible. The break which has occurred across the presumed approximate centre is irregular and abraded. At the approximate centre, on the edge of the break, the metal has been pushed …

An extremely worn copper-alloy numismatic artefact, probably a milled Post-Medieval coin. Weight is 5.54g, diameter is 26.4mm and thickness is 2.3mm. Both sides of the flan are worn and illegible although one has a mound indicative of a head or bust, the direction of which is uncertain (right-hand image in collage). The legends on both sides of the flan are completely illegible. Die axis is uncertain. This flan is similar in size to halfpennies from the reign of William III (sole reign AD1694-1720) onwards, possibly suggesting that it may not predate AD1694.

A late Medieval to middle Post-Medieval copper-alloy sword pommel. The open end has a flat blunt edge allowing the artefact to be placed standing unsupported on a flat surface.

Probably an incomplete copper-alloy button of very late Post-Medieval to Modern date. One side of this disc is very flat the other side convex. The object has a diameter of 12.5mm and maximum thickness of 2.1mm. No obvious trace of an attachment loop or fixing point for such a loop can be seen on either face of this artefact. However, two extremely small marks close to the centre of the flat surface may possibly be the trace remains of solder points for a thin wire loop. No surface metal coating survives and thus it is not possible to determine whether, if this was indeed a button, it…

A copper-alloy early Post-Medieval single sharp-hooked dress hook with open-work decoration, a Read Class E, Type 8. This figurative dress hook's body is in the form of a five-petalled rose, with pellet at centre and each of the petals shaped as a love-heart, pointed end positioned towards the centre. This has a diameter of 17.0mm, each petal has a thickness of 1.6mm and the artefact increases to the maximum thickness of 3.1mm over the central pellet. It seems that there was an intention for openwork decoration in the form of hollow centres on each petal. However, two of the petals ha…
