A cast copper-alloy mount from a post-medieval candle snuffer, more accurately a wick trimmer. The mount is a long, narrow rectangle in plan with a trefoil shaped terminal at the short ends. The terminals of each trefoil are angled; one has been abraded following old damage. The trefoils are decorated with three blind drilled marks.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A late Middle Bronze Age/early Late Bronze Age cast copper-alloy palstave (axehead) of unlooped type. The palstave is corroded and pitted. There is not much difference in width between septum and blade; the particular narrowness of the blade suggests an ancillary use as a chisel. The low flanges are abraded but gradually widen from the butt to the mid point, narrowing again towards the stop ridge with which they are fused, creating an elongated oval shape in profile. Just beyond the stop ridge are pronounced lateral protrusions; such lugs or 'trunnions' are known on chisels, but also …

A copper-alloy ('latten') spoon handle terminal of the baluster seal knop type.
