Lead unidentified object fragment. One end of a cast rectangular box with a hole of diameter 4.3mm drilled through its base; it appears that a diminutive gutter runs towards this hole, so its provision may have been an original feature of the object. Fine casually executed cuts appear across the upstanding edges of the box, and there is a small dimple in its upper surface at its surviving end. The object is distorted towards the cut or broken end, probably by the episode which truncated it. Patinated. The casual finishing might suggest this to be a toy or miniature object, though if a…

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. Cast tube with an open and probably as-made end, flattened at the other end, where a spur projects from one side and a thickened, brazed or partly melted patch may suggest the loss of a counterpart. This could be from a range of objects, from a winding key or a toy, to a component of machinery. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1550-1750. Length: 38.3mm, Width: 13.9mm, Diameter (at midpoint): 6.4mm, Thickness (wall of tube): 0.8mm, Weight: 5.13gms

Copper alloy unidentified object. A solid cylindrical object with four diagonally arranged longitudinal strips which extend from a flat end to an apparently hollow and splayed end. The appearance is of a fairly small calibre rifle bullet, possibly hollow-nosed, with its front end [as fired] disrupted and splayed by penetrating impact, though the material does not appear to include lead. If not a bullet, this object has still been involved with forces sufficient to cause catastrophic failure at one end, which should point to its having been subject to mechanical if not explosive forces…

A Post-medieval to Modern lead object of indeterminate function, probably post-dating AD 1632. The object consists of a rectangular tablet of lead, plain on the reverse but with an impression from a round coin weight on the obverse. The coin weight featured a crowned XX surmounting an s (in retrograde on the impression), within a beaded border. Length 19.4mm; width 22.6mm; thickness 2.2mm; weight 5.74g. Similar designs feature on a range of British coin weights, Withers & Withers (2011: 16), however, suggest that round weights with the design post-date 1632. The lead object is fa…

An irregular piece of red, translucent mineral, comparing favourably to red Chalcedony or possibly amber, 41.6mm in length, which appears to have been partially worked. This working consists of a hole drilled into one end, leaving one side split or damaged, possibly due to the hole being drilled off-centre. The other end is broken off leaving a flat face. This object may be waste or discard from a manufacture process, possibly for small items such as beads. Chalcedony was a semi-precious mineral used extensively in Roman jewelry; however stone or Amber beads and associated materials f…

Cast iron fragment. An iron plate with a rounded outer edge and concave sides, broken diagonally across its narrowest side. The material was tested with a magnet and responds strongly, so must be ferrous metal, though it displays no active corrosion whatsoever. A simple vegetal motif of a five branched sprig appears on the display face in a sunken triangular panel: though this appears as a hammered design, Dr Kevin Leahy kindly comments that it is cast. The back is flat. The object has rounded edges and fracture surfaces, and in this its condition is reminiscent of water-rolled materia…

Unidentified object, cast copper alloy hemisphere, oval-sectioned hollow cast, deeper internal hollow at the apex with a tiny perforation (damage or casting fault). A rectangular flat-sectioned lug projects from the flat surface of the mouth, one shorter than the other, both with a rounded and irregular probable break at the end. The object bears some resemblance to sword caps or pommels but its purpose is uncertain. Height 16.5mm. Width 29mm. 17mm thick. Thickness of casting at mouth 2-5mm. Weighs 21.49g. Date uncertain, probably ancient.

A sheet copper alloy unidentified object, possibly part of a Post Medieval powder flask. It is a tubular object of sub-recatangular cross-section, which has suffered post-depositional damage, but was probably originally curved, and may have been wider at the ends than in the centre. It has a thin green patina. It is 43.4mm long, 19.7mm wide and 7.5mm thick. 5.9g, containing some soil.

An incomplete lead-alloy possibly Medieval unidentified object, dating to AD 1250-1450. It is pointed oval in plan and it looks like a vesica-shaped seal matrix. One face of the object bears three raised lines crossed almost at the centre of the face and other thinner raised lines running transversely. The othe face bears a slightly raised circular border with unclear pellet decoration; this face is slightly concave. The object appears like two seals stuck onto each other. One of the pointed end is missing. Length: 32.00 mm Width: 21.96 mm Thickness of one possible seal: 2.56 mm Ov…

A bent copper alloy object, 68.4mm in length, weighing 8.3g. The object comprises a rod, 3.6mm thick. One end terminates in a broad crescent with inscribed saltire cross on either side, the other end terminates in three prongs. the object is bent and covered in tooling marks suggesting hand made manufacture. Potentially part of a post medieval fitting of some sort, although could be earlier.

An incomplete unidentified copper-alloy object (c. 1650-c. 1800). This object is a hooked plate with a separate hollow boss which is soldered to the front. The plate is flat and roughly triangular in plan. The broader end is straight and the sides taper evenly to a small hook at the rounded base. The front has an umbonate or hollow boss with an iron knop at its apex. The boss has evenly spaced holes as decoration. Most of the holes are filled with corrosion. The rear face has a rectangular iron feature with a fresh break which may be integral with the knop at the apex. This object i…

An incomplete copper alloy unidentifed object of uncertain date, from the Roman to post-medieval periods (AD 43 - 1700). The object is D-shaped in cross-section with a flat reverse and convex front. It is in the form of an oval with an arm of narrowing width projecting from one of the long edges. To the reverse of the oval (12.9x9.8x3.2mm), and slightly off-centre, is a broken (old damge) pyramidal projection c.7mm long, 5.2mm wide and 4.2mm thick. The arm curves in an arc and narrows from 7.6x3.1mm to 3.7x2.5mm at an old break. The object measures 21.9mm in length, 12.9mm in max.width…

Lead object, possibly a pot mend. It is in the form of an oval plate with one flat face. The reverse of the object has a shield-shaped protrusion which is a little off-centre; a few mm in from (and following the line of) the perimeter are arranged 7 small round protrusions. The maximum dimensions are 34.7 by 30.0mm, and the thickness at the protrusions is 7.3mm, and the plate is generally c4.3mm thick. It weighs 33.4g. It has a well developed white patina, and could be of Roman or any post-Roman date - but it is thought that it is unlikely to be post-medieval due to the degree of patination.

An incomplete, cast copper-alloy unidentified object of probable Post Medieval date, AD 1500 - 1900. It consists of two arms, both 5.5mm wide and 2.5mm thick. They meet at a right angle. Both are incomplete, but one extends for 14mm before bending down at a right-angle and continuing for 16mm before the worn patinated break. The other one is shorter and does not bend. A narrow curved bar of metal joins them across the internal angle of the right angle, leaving a sub-circular hole of 3.6mm by 3.8mm. A third, narrower are projects from the corner of the two main arms, but is also broken,…

Copper alloy unidentified object. A rectangular strip of thickness 0.7mm which has its square-cut ends folded neatly behind it, one overlapping the other. The sheet is plain here, but on the other side it exhibits a slightly concavo-convex swelling and has finely incised linear borders, suggesting this to be a display face.
