An incomplete cast copper alloy suspension swivel for an oil flask. This is one half of the swivel and comprises of two axial loops what would have formed the centre of the piece, interspersing these loops would be a corresponding parallel set forming the other half (now missing). The loops are encrusted with iron corrosion suggesting that an iron pin formed the axis of the swivel. Joining the two loops together on the side is a square cross-section rod. Projecting from both the top and bottom edges of the rod is a semi-circular arm with expanded terminal, from these would have hung …

A cast copper alloy cooking vessel leg/foot. The leg is a elongated trapezoid in plan with a slightly splayed foot. In profile the foot is a elongated trapezoid and the leg is a straight which is a squat trapezoid in section. The upper edge is broken but it is not recent as the patina covers the break, and this edge is hollow and undulating. The base of the foot is sub-trapezoidal with the narrowest edge forming the reverse edge. The surface of the leg has a mottled green coloured patina. It also has patches of a black deposit which is probably a sooty/carbon deposit. The leg measures…

Elaborate cast copper alloy double-looped handle attachment of a Roman vessel: a female bust in very high relief with elaborate hairstyle is set on a vine leaf, the surface of which carries single & double grooves representing the veins. Above the bust a rectangular "hat" consists of two plain horizontal mouldings, one on each side of a zone of cross-hatching. At the top the two loops are separated by a double vertical groove & are decorated with punched annulets. On the reverse the roughly circular central part of the surface is rough & uneven, a scar resulting from attachment to the…

Cast copper-alloy vessel handle shaped like a dolphin. The head and body of the creature are semi-circular, culminating in a rounded point protruding very slightly from the point where the body curves round in the opposite direction into the tail. There is a smooth 'crest' on the head of the creature which follows the curve of the head. The tail curves round to meet the body and the end of the tail is trilobate. The central 'lobe' of the tail follows the line of the body and terminates in a pointed tip. The other two 'lobes' are positioned either side of the tail, at right angles to t…

A cast copper-alloy probable vessel body fragment most likely to be between 1300 and 1600AD in date and possibly from a cooking vessel of some kind. The fragment is roughly rectangular in shape and curvilinear, it measures 55.2mm in depth and 46.3mm in width. The inner surface is smooth and the outer surface rougher to the touch with visible longitudinal lines, it is also decorated and has two parallel transverse ridges below which roughly half of an incised star can be seen, this star would have been six-pointed when complete. No parallel could be found for this decoration.

A copper-alloy mount of late Iron Age to early Roman date. The object takes the form of a bull's head and is part of a group of suggested bucket escutcheon which seem to have their origins in the last half of the 1st century BC. Although the most commonly represented animal in this series is the bull, this particular object is perhaps stylistically most closely paralleled with a ram's head escutcheon from a late Iron Age grave in Harpenden, Hertfordshire (I.Stead, 1985, p. 41). The head of the bull is long, wide, and of reasonably little depth. The upper surface has two transverse r…

Cast copper-alloy tubular spout in the form of a dog's head. It was cast separately from the rest of the vessel and soldered on via a long sloping seam. The spout quickly tapers to become tubular; the end has a pair of upright rectangular slightly fluted ears, a moulded brow and muzzle with no extra decoration in the way of eyes, and open jaws between which a short cylinder projects to finish the spout. This is a simple example of a well-known 15th century type; it would originally have been attached to a pedestal-base ewer (see Lewis 1987, fig. 8A).

A copper-alloy sheet possible vessel repair of medieval or post medieval date. The sheet is incomplete and curvilinear, the long edges appear to be complete and the short edges incomplete due to old breaks. It measures 58.6mm in length and 15.5mm in width it is flat and 1.4mm in thickness. On one face there is a fragment of copper-alloy, which is rectangular and 12.8mm by 11mm in size, which is attached to the sheet strip by two parallel rivets. No parallel could be found for this object, so although it is possibly a vessel repair this identification is by no means certain.

Cast copper alloy vessel escutcheon dating from the Roman period, that is the 1st-4th century AD. The mount is solid cast, with a hollow back that was filled with white solder and thus attached to the vessel. There would have been another one on the opposite side of the vessel. The escutcheon is shaped like a human head, topped with a ring that would have held one side of the vessel's handle. The face has short hair, a snub nose, large eyes and large eyes and possibly horns, therefore suggesting it might be the depiction of the Roman God Bacchus who was the god of wine, merriment and …

Bronze cast vessel fragment dating to the medieval period. The part is sub-rectangular in shape, solid with a semi-circular section where it has broken from the vessel. The piece looks similar to a vessel foot but does not terminate at an angle which is likely if it was a foot. Instead the piece is likely to be a handle, possibly from a skillet. The fragment has crude decoration on the top and a zoomorphic terminal with eyes, a nose and a mouth. On the back of the fragment there is a curved protrusion, perhaps some sort of finger/hand rest for when picking the vessel up.

Copper alloy vessel leg. Such vessel legs can date from the 14th-17th Century, however this example is probably of Medieval date. The leg is broken off at the top and is generally triangular in section. The upper section has straight sides. The reverse is flat and there is a wide rounded longitudinal ridge at the junction of the other two sides. Either side of this ridge there is a slight longitudinal groove. Beneath this section there is a raised lateral ridge around the two sides with moulded decoration. Beneath this the object expands to form the foot. Again the reverse is…

Rim fragment of cu-alloy sheet vessel, possibly a bowl. The date is difficult to determine because riveted bronze sheet vessels have been known since the Late Bronze Age and Norfolk is rich in Bronze Age metalwork. However, the vessel could also date from the IA, Roman or Medieval Ages. The rim of the vessel was made from two layers of bronze sheet, held together by rivets, two of which are still in place. The double layer of sheet metal around the rim probably served as enforcement. A parallel for this piece comes from the Late Bronze/Early Iron Age settlement of Potterne, Wilts. (Law…
