An incomplete cast and wrought lead alloy badge of uncertain - most probably post medieval (1600-1800) date.

The reverse face is uneven, two small circular scars are present - presumably these are the remai…

A dressed rectangular block of mid yellow coloured coarse micaceous sandstone -the upper surface has been carved and a irregular worn oval shaped depression is present.

Two relatively thick fragments of stone (slate) roof tiles formed on a mid-grey coloured micaceous silt stone with clear banding / bedding planes. The upper surface of each of the tiles has a neatly cut cross with wedge shaped terminals. Both the crosses have been cut by hand using a small cold chisel with the profile of the cut being distinctly wedge shaped. The presence of the crosses has been noted on other roof tiles and probably represents either a local 'roofers / masonary mark' or a local tradition of cutting crosses into roofs as a sign of protection / superstition (stopping t…

A lead alloy shot / ball of probable post medieval or early modern date (1600-1800 AD). Due to the size and weight the ball is most likely to be from a small carbine or pistol.

It is a mid-grey colour with an abraded patina. Similar shot has been dated to the later post medieval period however the date range should extend into the early modern period as similar projectiles were used in firearms throughout this period.
