A cast copper-alloy fragment: possibly a dish support from a late medieval/early post-medieval chafing dish. The object tapers to a point at one end. It has a trapezoidal cross-section and appears to have been broken away from another element at the shorter of the long edges of the attachment end. The artefact has corroded to a red/brown colour with patches of light-green corrosion product. It appears to be plain.

A copper-alloy Roman probable initial T-shaped brooch, incomplete in so far as it is missing its pin (later 1st-century AD). The brooch survives well, only having suffered some post-depositional abrasions and slight pitting. The head has tubular wings, flattened slightly on their upper surface. They are apparently plain. The axis bar is largely obscured by the wings, but is can be said to have been made from iron judging by orange corrosion product both at the wing terminals and within the pin slot. The hinged pin is missing. The upper bow emerges from the wings initially at a…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy post-medieval double-looped buckle frame.

A copper-alloy Roman zoomorphic plate brooch in the shape of a rabbit shown in profile. The rabbit is depicted seated with compact, rounded body and proportionally small head. The fore and hind paws seem to be truncated, but would not have been that prominent to judge from comparanda. The eye is formed of a punch and a small ear extends behind the head. The body is corroded and pitted; it is pitting that seems visible rather than recesses for enamel found on similar brooches. The lower surface features a broken and abraded double pin lug at the centre of the rabbit's rear, and a a…

A copper-alloy fragment: probably the terminal of a handle from a medieval cooking vessel, probably a posnet. The handle has a low D-shaped cross-section, being flat on its upper surface and shallowly convex below. It terminates in an angled projection at about 135 degrees to the handle's underside, a projection that seems to be characteristic of posnets. Before this projection is a cross patty recessed into the upper surface of the handle. The object now has a mid-green colour with some surface loss; the break is old and patinated.

In profile the buckle has been bent as a result of old damage.

A post-medieval cast copper-alloy vessel leg. The leg is triangular with rounded corners in cross-section with a flat back and convex front. It is decorated with a prominent central longitudinal rib, flanked by a single low rib to each side. The terminal is merely squared off rather than ending in a foot; this is somewhat rounded through wear. The attachment end bears the curved interior of the vessel with very little surviving beyond the cross-section of the leg. The leg stands at an angle of sixty or more degrees to a flat surface.
