Twelve ceramic beads that are spherical in form, each with a large off-centre hole. Eight of the beads are large (Diameter 15mm, height 13mm, weight 2.46g and four are small Diameter 10mm, height 8mm, weight 0.84g, all are undecorated. Due to a lack of contextual evidence and any diagnostic features it is not possible to date this object any more closely and it could be Roman through to modern in date.

Copper alloy awl/point that is a long thin rod that has an expanded waist (5mm diameter) towards one end. The longer side (from the expansion) is 40mm long and has a circular cross-section (3mm diameter) which very gently tapers to the tip, unfortunately the terminal is truncated. The shorter side (form the expansion) is 14mm long, and has a rectangular cross-section (2mm diameter) that narrows to a fine point; this side may have been used as a tang and could have been inserted into a socket.
