A complete glass or stone bead of uncertain date. The bead is spherical with a central circular perforation. The bead is pale green in colour. The bead is 8.2mm in diameter, 6.8mm thick and weighs 0.6g. The perforation is 2.7mm in diameter. Beads are very difficult to date with any certainty.

The edges of the blade are irregular and highly fragmentary due to corrosion. Some trace of edge bevels are discernable along parts of the blade edge, but it is hard to distinguish these from areas of corrosion. At the base of th…
