Unidentified terminal that is made from a semi-circular cross-section rod. The rod had an expanded waist that tapers to the narrow terminal, unfortunately on the opposite side although we can witness the sides begin to narrow after the waist, this end is now truncated. The remaining terminal is moulded into a large D-shaped projection, possibly to give the impression that the terminal has been bent back over itself. On the top edge is a shallow (1mm deep) U-shaped grove that runs the length of the item. The item has the look of a roman cosmetic grinder, however the shallow channel an…

Cast copper alloy fitting, hollow, D sectioned with a 2.0mm wide x 0.9mm deep, square sectioned, transverse rib around its wider end. Both ends are now open but the opening on the flatter end may be a result of damage. The date and function of this object are unknown. It section, at 2.1mm at the open end and 1,0mm at the open end is too thin for it to be a Bronze Age gouge and a later date seems likely.

Both faces of the spindle whorl are un-decorated. The surfaces of the spindle whorl are a cream to light brown colour. Spindle whorls are used for a long period of time and decorated examples are thought to date to the medieval to post-medieval periods. However, this undecorated example is very difficult …

Bronze Age to Post Medieval (c. 2350 BC to 17th century) awl: The awl has a tang which is rectangular in section and tapers to a blunt edge. The tang is over half of the awl. The other half is circular in section, is slightly swollen before tapering to a sharp point. Between the tang and awl there is a fine groove circumventing the awl. The surface has traces of a mottled brown-green patina. It measures 43.72mm long, 5.6mm diameter and weighs 3.81g. Many awls are recorded as possibly Bronze Age, but as the design of awls has changed very little, therefore it could also be much more…

An incomplete copper alloy artefact of uncertain function, probably of Medieval to Post Medieval Period dating (AD 1400 - AD 1900).

Underneath the knop is a ridge followed by a long cylindrical shaft, this is narrower towards the knop and slightly tapers out towards the other end. The object may have sustained some damage or may have been mis-cast as just underneath the knop the object's cylindrical shaft has been flattened. This…
