Cast copper alloy Post-Medieval buckle, c.AD 1500-1700. Cast copper alloy sub-rectangular double looped buckle frame with fragment of its central bar. The frame has rounded edges and is broken in one place; the frame has a raised section at the cross-section, possibly to ensure that the leather strap does not move too far across the frame. The metal has survived well, which suggests a modern date. The size of this buckle implies this was used with horse gear.

Incomplete Roman enamelled plate brooch of Mackreth class 3; probably 3.a (Horse) or 3.c (Hares/Hounds). The fragment consists of the body section of an animal running right and is truncated by old breaks across the lower neck and the first part of the legs. There is a circular empty enamel cell on the hind quarters and a larger cell containing just two tiny flecks of bluish-green enamel running along the body and up the neck. The lack of tail is perhaps more suggestive of a hare but the missing feet and head mean this is far from conclusive. The reverse o…
