Lead alloy, or lead, perforated circular weight or spindle whorl of unknown age. The weight has a circular perforation. It has an external diameter of 21mm, and the central perforation has a maximum diameter of 6mm. The weight has seen a lot of use and has suffered damage and wear.

Post-Medieval asymmetrical copper alloy shoe buckle. The spindle, pin, and most of the anchor chape have survived. The exterior face of the frame has been decorated with scrolling, and corner knops at the chape end. The anchor chape is missing its terminal knop and is asymmetric. Both it and the spindle & pin, are noticeably crudely made, especially when contrasted with the quite intricate decorative work on the frame. It may well have been gilded, silvered, or tinned, when first manufactured. Similar in form to Whitehead's 599 (Whitehead, 1996, p96f). Dates from between c1680 and c17…
