An incomplete lead figurine probably of a stylised horse tentatively dated to the Roman period (c. AD 43-410).

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…

Two copper alloy discs, both roughly made, plain but with a low, flat, central boss. On the back of each of the discs are two lugs, both perforated for an attachment pin.

Post Medieval token: a 17th century trade token issued by Francs Iefferis of Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire. Williamson No. 188.

As a result traders and business proprietors began issuing tokens as an alternate coinage with equivalent denominations of a farthing, half penny or penny. Such trade tokens rarely travel far from their place of issue and provide an insight to the trade of the time. In 1672 regal copper coinage was introduced and the trade tokens we…
