A small and worn copper alloy object of probable early Roman date (c. AD 43-200). The object, possibly part of a brooch or fitting, is slightly oval in plan with a small, rectangular 'tab' projecting from one edge, which is broken and incomplete. Within the face of the fitting is a cinquefoil annulet design set within a recessed circular field which would have been filled with enamel but of which none now survives.

A worn and bent lead alloy toke dating from c. AD 1600-1800. The obverse has a pair of cross keys with pellets in the quarters formed by the cross, while the reverse has a grid pattern, sometimes interpreted as lines on a ploughed field but more likely to represent a chequer board, which could be associated with accounting or a pub called the chequers. A similar token can be seen in Powell (2015:02 Fig. 5). Similar tokens with cross keys are DENO-7DF672 , SUR-2BC207, SUR-14F342, LANCUM-10BDD5 and BH-7076F4. Reference: Powell D., 2015.
