A copper alloy unidentified zoomorphic object of uncertain date, flat to the reverse and with slightly faceted edges to the front but otherwise rectangular in cross-section. It comprises a C-shaped loop with a knop-like projection extending from the centre of the curve and its ends joining the back of a two-headed animal. Below the body two legs extend, curving slightly outwards. The heads are long, one with a bulbous brown ridge and short turned-up snout, the other angled downwards with a concave nose terminating in a squarish snout.

A lead and copper alloy printing or possibly animal tattooing letter of probably dating to the the Post Medieval period (1750-1850) The object is a roughly rectangular lead block with straight sides and slanting ends. The underside is fitted with several spikes which form the letter B in reverse; there are two spikes missing.This object is obviously from some form of printing or tattooing machine but, as no other reference can be found of a similar nature, it is not possible to give a definite use or age. It is probably from the mid 18th to mid 19th centuries. Length: 28.81mmWidth: 1…

County: North Lincolnshire

Copper alloy and iron unidentified object. A wrought iron bar sheathed in a round section copper alloy finial with an elongated pointed end. The finial springs from a cup at the site of a constriction; the cup expands again near the site of a basal break which reveals corroded iron which has begun to explode the object at that point. The combination of a strong ferrous metal with a covering of copper alloy intended to retard its corrosion is especially characteristic of the later Iron Age, when it most commonly occurs in terret rings and cart or chariot fittings. Suggested date: Late I…

Copper alloy unidentified object. A probably die-stamped object comprising a thick [2.4mm] central disc with three equidistantly spaced oval-ended arms projecting from it [one lost]. Each arm had a finely screw-threaded cylindrical lug protruding to a height of 5mm. A central pit may indicate a fixing or turning point for the object; a mechanical function seems probable. The remaining arms are now bent upwards and towards each other. Suggested date: Post-Medieval to Modern, 1850-1950 Diameter: c.70mm, Thickness (at arm): 2.7mm, Weight: 42.50gms

An unidentified copper alloy object, which has probably been cut and repurposed from an earlier object. The item is formed of a flat rectangular strip decorated with punched dots and a diagonally incised line. The item then appears to have been rolled over to form a tapering cylinder. The edges do not meet, creating a gap of around 10mm. The whole is 36mm in diameter. Depth of strip 19mm.

A cast copper alloy so-called 'moustache-shaped' object dating from the Middle Bronze Age to Iron Age. This is probably approximately half of a double moustache-shaped fitting. The object is three-dimensional oval in plan and D-shaped in cross section with a hollow back and could also be described as 'slug shaped'. It tapers evenly at both ends to a relatively rounded terminals. One appears complete and the other appears to have a patinated, uneven break at the tip, probably at the site of the connection to the other half of the moustache. The upper surfaces are decorated with cast c…

Incomplete Late Iron Age to Early Roman copper alloy object, a curving round-sectioned rod, broken at both ends, one of which is distorted, and expanding into a roundel inlaid with orange enamel within which a quatrefoil is reserved. Quatrefoil motif occurs on several Norfolk terrets (e.g. Hutcheson 2004, nos. 124-6) and one from a hoard at Carleton Rode (Gurney 2005, fig. 2 C). This piece, though rather worn, is too flimsy to have acted as a rein ring, but may have served a more decorative function such as a bracelet. Extant length 47mm. Internal diameter c.70mm. Width at the breaks 2…

An unidentified, incomplete copper alloy object of Early Medieval or Medieval date, probably dating to c. AD 750-1100. The object consists of a bar of copper alloy, plano-convex in cross-section and curving in profile, truncated at one end by an old break. The other end flares outwards in plan, forming a trapezoidal terminal. The juncture between the bar and terminal is moulded into a stylised three-dimentional representation of a zoomorphic head; with rounded sub-triangular ears, transverse ridges depicting eyes and a central longitudinal ridge along the snout - the trapezoidal termin…

Copper alloy unidentified object. A cast Y-shaped object with branched arms narrower than the trapezoid shank or stem whence they protrude, whose other end is probably broken. An identification as the rowel box of a spur was considered, and the gap between the arms may have been enlarged by wear, but there is no visible provision for attachment of the putative rowel.
