Penhallurick 2009, 269: "The museum on St Mary's has three sestertii found in a midden layer on the southern shoreline of Tean in 1956. Accompanying pottery indicated an occupation from the first to the fourth centuries and included sherds of samian ware and a bronze brooch (Thomas 1985, p.183)". He notes that the second sestertius of Marcus Aurelius listed here may have been turned into a brooch (bronze adhered to the bottom of the reverse), though this has not been verified.

Seven silver-plated copper alloy copies of silver shillings of Edward VI (1547-1553); the bust is not like either Bust 3 or 4 which should be found on a coin of this date and mint, which suggests an attempt at a forgery, where the face has been carved into the die by hand, so that the cheeks, ear and nose do not resemble the correct busts. The coins seem to have been hammered from two different dies as they all have the same 't' mintmark for Canterbury (Spink 2468, North 1921) on the obverse and the arrow for the year 1549 on the reverse, where there is also the same mistake in the le…

Group of fifty flint implements, thirteen of which are photographed here as the best worked pieces, including a leaf-shaped arrowhead, two gravers, three blades, three notched flakes and four scrapers, all dating from the Neolithic period c.4500-2100 BC. The majority of the group, eighteen, are waterworn waste pieces, or debitage, and there are thirteen worked waterworn flakes and six worked pieces apart from those illustrated here. The flint is mottled light to dark grey in colour with cortex remaining on some pieces, which is typical of the local beach flint found in the area.

Shard from a Post-Medieval cylindrical jar made from 'potash glass'. The shard comes from the top of the vessel and includes part of the slightly everted rim and a portion of the body, which curves first outwards and then abruptly downwards indicating that the vessel probably had straight walls (though the lower portion is missing). The original size and form of the vessel is difficult to determine from such a small shard, but it seems likely that it would have had a wide rim and neck and that the complete vessel would have been of a good size.

Machined cornelian intaglio, rectangular in plan and profile, with faceted edges that have been water-worn and rounded, depicting a bearded man facing right with a band across the forehead over neat combed hair. "The rectangular shape and the bevelled edges suggest a neo-classical date, probably 18th century. But without a setting to help it is often impossible to date engraved gems as the techniques used do not change." (Judy Rudoe pers comm)

Flint discoidal scraper, semi-circular in plan and sub-rectangular in profile. The scraper has been unifacially reworked on the right edge of the dorsal face and naturally truncated on the left edge where cortex remains from the original edge of the flint pebble. The ventral face retains the bulb of percussion at the proximal end. The flint is a mottled light to dark grey colour, made from a local beach pebble, with some of the orignal cortex remaining on the left edge of the dorsal face. The length to breadth ratio is about 6:5. Bond (2004) illustrates a similar example on page …

Cast copper alloy penannular arm band or arm-ring made up of a curved flattened rod, convex in section, with expanded and flattened terminals. The terminals and the band are decorated with punched dots and incised rouletting in radiating lines on the terminals and criss-crossed across the band which makes it appear like rope.
