A Roman copper alloy miniature axehead dating to the period c. AD 43 - 410. The blade of the axe is triangular with rounded corners.

A copper alloy miniature socketed and looped axehead dating from the Late Bronze Age to the Roman period (c. 1150 BC - AD 410) . The axehead has parallel vertical sides with an oval mouth and plain lip. It can be classified as Robinson's type IV. The side loop is set just below the mouth. Miniature socketed axeheads can be dated from the Late Bronze Age through to the late Roman period. They probably functioned as amulets or votive offerings. The majority are unstratified finds, therefore, it is difficult to give a precise date, hence the broad date range ascribed to this example. …

Half of a silvered cast copper alloy miniature snaffle bit of probable late Iron Age to early Roman date. The miniature bit measures 35.4mm by 27.8mm by 6.6mm and weighs 4.8g. It is broadly cross-shaped, with a small jump ring in a different cooper alloy which links to a perpendicular loop at the end of the shortest arm of the cross. At the opposite end there is a another slightly larger perpendicular loop. This would have linked with the other half of the bit, which would have been identical with the exception of the orientation of the corresponding loop. The terminals of the other tw…
