An Early Medieval to Medieval copper alloy mount, probably a book, casket or strap fitting, dating to c. AD 1000-1200.

An apparently incomplete post-medieval (1600-1700) lead alloy harness mount, an umbonate bridle boss with an elaborate separate cinquefoil within a concentric moulding.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete and corroded Medieval copper-alloy pointed-oval, or vesica-shaped, seal matrix (c. 1300-1400).

The reverse face is plain, other than the raised midrib, which would have probably led to a suspension loop at the top that is broken from this seal matrix.
