The object is a vessel lid. It is sub circular in plan, with a sub-semi circular platform protruding from one edge. There are at least 5 very small angular protrusions which are probably decorative.

There are also two fine concentric grooves between the inner and outer ‘ring and dot’ borders. The semi-circular …

A rim sherd from an early Roman Samian ware Dragondorff form 37 decorated vessel. The rim has an external bead, below which is a plain band (the fact this is fairly narrow suggests a 1st century date) and below this is ovolo (egg-and-tongue) decoration. Very little of the decoration below the ovolo survives. The curvature suggests a rim diameter of 15cm. Dimensions: 60.7mm by 47.6mm by 9.2mm Weight: 22.14g

A fragment of cast copper alloy jug handle. A curvilinear/leaf-shaped lower terminal escutcheon with relief decoration of two human feet.

The broken terminal end of a Roman copper alloy patera (skillet) handle. The sides of the handle taper towards the break with a double grooved linear border on either side. The terminal of the handle is circular with a beaded border running around its circumference, the centre is pierced for suspension and also has a beaded rim around its edge. A good parallel for this handle is provided by a complete vessel from Gloucestershire recorded on the database as GLO-048BB1. The handle would originally have been cast as one with the vessel. However, there is evidence for re-use. the broken e…

A cast copper alloy Roman vessel foot, probably from a bucket. These items were used in sets of three to protect the bases of Roman cast or sheet bronze vessels, in particular buckets (Jackson 1990, 46). The foot has a slightly curving rectangular shape, which would have corresponded to the size of the base of the vessel it supported. In this case the bucket's base must have been around 18 cm in diameter. There are two opposing kidney-shaped perforations through the centre of the object and at each end is a cut away stepped notch. One side of the object is flat, but the other has a lon…
