Heavily constructed copper alloy lobed plate with two piercings through which domed rivets pass. Its date and function are yet to be determined with any confidence. At first glance it appears to be a fixing plate for a hinge. However this is unlikely, but not impossible, as both rivets appear complete and there doesn't seem to be a large enough gap for the plate to have been attached to anything wooden. It may have been originally mounted on a book, or been a form of strap end/weight, or some form of mount or fitting. Dates to anytime between c43 and c1900 AD. The length is 60mm, w…

Cast cu-alloy furniture mount or fitting dating to the Early Roman period depicting the bust of the Roman goddess Diana. While the front of the mount shows moulded features such as Diana's face, dress, hair and part of her quiver, the reverse is flat and slightly hollow. Also, there may be remains of solder in the hollow of the reverse. The front surface is shiny and looks quite worn while the reverse is pitted and not very worn, possibly showing remains of solder. Depictions of Diana are not very common finds in Britain: in 1992, there were four known bronze figurines from Britain fro…

Cast copper alloy hollow-backed mount in the form of a human face in refief. Well defined features, slit mouth with possible moustache defined by slanting grooves to either side eminating from beneath the nose. A pair of short protrusions from the chin resembles a forked beard. Drilled 'dimple' on top lip, well defined oval eyes and eyebrows with drilled pupils. The ornate hair comprises a central 'quiff' and sides standing proud of the head and defined by curving incised grooves. The face has been drilled on the left hand side with a 3mm diameter hole. It also appears that the right e…

Cast cu-alloy mount dating from the Roman period, i.e. c. AD43-410. The mount is dome-shaped and complete with an undecorated reverse and moulded, circular decoration on the obverse. It also has two small loops which are set opposite each other at the rim of the dome. However it is more likely that they were rivet holes rather than suspension loops, as this mount was probably worn as a belt or strap decoration.

Report on potential Treasure for HM Coroner 2014 T439 Carnforth, Lancashire. Teardrop-shaped silver horse-harness pendant with spherical finial. The attachment is a loop of strip metal which expands slightly to its terminal. The obverse is decorated with a punched pellet floral design of four pairs of volutes in a stack all attached to a central stem. The reverse is undecorated. Discussion: such pendants are considered to be military fittings used to decorate the harnesses of cavalry horses. For similar items see Bishop & Coulston 2006, fig. 124, nos. 12-16. Date:…

Copper alloy mount or strap fitting, very probably dating from the Roman period, c. 1st-4th century. The mount is incomplete, but survives in fair condition. It is flat circular in shape with what looks like two lugs (possibly a broken rectangular loop) on the reverse. It is possible that it had some kind of enamelled or inlaid decoration on the obverse, but none of that remains: it is plan without any marks. If the reverse was a rectangular loop its function could have been that of a strap or belt slide. If the two lus were separate it may have been a decorative mount attached to lea…

A Roman copper alloy mount in the form of a bust of Minerva with a copper-alloy stud projecting from the reverse. Minerva wears a high crested helmet and traces of a cuirass are visible in the decoration of the chest, though the object is incredibly worn. The length is 52mm, the width is 21mm and the weight 22.88g. Feugere notes that the dating for these objects is a work in progress, though it is clear that each type was not necessarily used at the same time (Feugere, 2004, 33). The symbol of Minerva, Goddess of wisdom, is appropriate for such objects and can thus associate the…
