A corroded T-shaped iron nail with a tapered, rectangular-sectioned shank. The tip is missing. A number of early to early post-medieval horseshoes have been found in close proximity and T-shaped nails were used to secure these;however, this nail seems larger than those used to secure horseshoes and was probably used for construction purposes. The nail probably dates from the Late Medieval to early-post-Medieval periods.
