Apparently a lead model for a brooch, which would have been circular and slightly domed. Some of the edges now appear to have been cut off straight, and the maximum surviving diameter is 21 mm. There is no decoration on the convex upper face. The reverse is flat, not hollowed, and has a surviving curled-over lug which looks like a catchplate. No pin lug survives. Perhaps a trial piece or a model which would have been used in the manufacturing process; similar to the small Anglo-Scandinavian domed disc brooches of the tenth century AD.

Incomplete lead brooch. It is flat and circular, 39 mm in diameter, and about half is missing. There is a border consisting of two rings of pellets, which surrounds a relief quatrefoil. Inside this is another quatrefoil, and then a central relief circle. Only one of the foils survives complete, and this has a large pellet between the central circle and the line of the inner quatrefoil. Just inside the border, in some places cutting through the outer quatrefoil, is a ring of small circular perforations. On the reverse is a transverse pin lug, now squashed flat. The design of this br…

A fragment of a lead early Anglo-Saxon cruciform brooch, measuring 16mm in length and 16mm in width. The fragment consists of part of the head plate and one half-round side knob, which is not detachable. The rest of the brooch is missing and the breaks are old. It is unusual to discover lead early Anglo-Saxon brooches; this brooch could have been used as such or may possibly have been a template or test brooch.

An incomplete cast lead disc or nummular brooch of late Anglo-Saxon date. Approximately one quarter of the brooch survives intact, the remainder now missing due to old breaks.

On the back face is an integrally cast flat, rectangular catchplate, the corresponding pin lug now missing due to old breaks. The front face of the plate has moulded decoration that may be considered broadly nummular in form although now abstract from coin types proper. It comprises an uncertain ce…

A lead brooch, circular in shape with a diameter of 23mm. There is a central circular low flat-topped boss on the front, 12mm in diameter; the boss has a scratched X on it, and around the edge of the disc there are further transverse scratched grooves. On the reverse, part of the pin lug and the catch survive; the pin lug is parallel to the edge of the brooch, and the turned-over catchplate is perpendicular to this. This brooch is of Weetch type 13, but as it was originally recorded as medieval it was not included in Weetch's catalogue. It is unusual as being the only Weetch type 13 w…
