A copper alloy unidentified object of possible Post Medieval date (c. AD 1500-1800). The object comprises a suspension loop with bevelled inner edges, attached to two domed circular components via a cylindrical shank running from the loop through both components. The first component is a slightly conical (inverted), circular disc. Below this disc is a domed base, separated from the upper disc revealing part of the shank extending from the suspension loop. The base is flat at its lower edge and provides the appearance of a seal matrix, though there is no evidence of a matrix apparent. A…

Silver unidentified object. A small triangular object comprising a plain back-plate of thickness 0.4mm and a stamped front, the latter bearing rounded bosses as follow: two rows of five; separated by a horizontal bar from one row of three bosses; below two bosses, which are below an inverted crescent. The display face appears to be gilded over the thin silver sheet of which it is made. The back-plate is peeled away at the apex of the triangular form. The combination of composite construction and silver gilt may point to the early post-medieval period. Given this dating and the suspecte…

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. A small chip from the curved edge of an object with a flat back and a stamped motif which includes a four-petalled floret. The finder kindly suggests this to be a coin, but the single-sided decoration and plano-convex profile tends to argue against this suggestion: a coin of Iron Age date would be of scyphate or concavo-convex form. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1700. Length: 17mm, Width: 9.4mm, Thickness: 2.2mm, Weight: 1.44gms

An incomplete copper alloy possible strap end or knife handle of probable late Medieval to Post Medieval date (c. AD 1400-1700). The object is sub-rectangular in plan, curving and widening at its terminal to a triangular point. The opposite end has two projections which would have attached it to a strap or handle of an implement. The terminal end is flat with openwork cells and shows traces of mother of pearl inlay. The other half of the object is D-shaped in cross-section and has four raised ribs running across the main body. The reverse of the object is flat at the terminal end and c…

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. Curving cast bar, of round section at its midpoint [here of diameter 8.9mm] but expanded and widened to oval section at one end, which is broken, and expanded towards the other end in a different way: by the addition of a thin projecting flange. The flange terminates abruptly at the site of a narrower [6.8mm] round section continuation of the bar, which appears intended for insertion into another element. Letters of post-medieval angular form, possibly reading GML, are stamped into one side of the flange. A pair of thin converging grooves appe…

A lead zoomorphic figurine of unknown date. The object is in the shape of a dolphin with an arched back, a well-defined lip and tail. The remains of a casting seam is visible on the base. The base has a mould seam and possible remains of a single attachment point which may have been used to fit the figure to a stand or mount. The moulded lead retains some detail on the tail, eyes and mouth. The lead has a whitish-grey patina. The date of the object is unknown and could be Roman to modern in date.

An unidentified copper-alloy and gilded object of Unknown date and uncertain function. This object is circular and the front is decorated with a 'triskele'-like motif. The motif is in the form of curvilinear lines forming three evenly spaced conjoined 'scrolls'. The front has a patterned border of continuous oblique lines. The reverse is flat and plain with whitish patches of corrosion. On the rear face, just below the protrusion, a small pale circular area is possibly a break. This object is drab green with patches of a dark green patina. Traces of gilding can be seen on both sides.…

Cast copper alloy fitting, possibly a Post Medieval handle from a piece of furniture or a Late Medieval buckle frame. C shaped with an expanded centre decorated with four transverse mouldings, two larger mouldings flanking two smaller. Either side of this are zones of fine, transverse grooves associated with which is what appears to be a 1.5mm long piece of silver wire. The decoration extends around the fitting. Its surviving end is expanded before narrowing again. The function of this object is uncertain and while its extended form can be paralleled on Late Medieval buckles (Egan and …

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. A cast flat rectangular section bar with curved hollows symmetrically placed at either end on the lower side [as illustrated], and a larger curved hollow on one side of its upper edge, which is elsewhere straight. Sub-triangular projections at either end may suggest the continuation of the object as an open frame. A ferrous metal object is attached to the middle of one side, but as this does not appear to pass through the bar it may represent an adventitious adhesion rather than part of the object. The crisp edges might suggest stamped manufac…

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. Cast Y-shaped object with dense moulded vegetal detail of Neo-Classical character on both sides. The symmetrical arms of the 'Y' spring from a waisted collar or binding similarly decorated; the object is broken at its narrowest point below this. The object projected from its setting, though whether as finial or as a functional element - as perhaps from an ornate buckle frame - remains uncertain. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1650-1850 Height: 17.1mm, Width: 19.6mm, Thickness: 4.0mm, Weight: 3.07gms

An incomplete artefact of unknown date and function; it is most likely to be part from a knife handle (counter weight) of post medieval date. The plate is an irregular octagonal shape (square with the corners removed) and rectangular in cross section. Through the centre is a rectangular slot (7.8mm x 2.6mm). The upper surface is plain and undecorated whilst the lower has a series of scratched marks - most probably through movement in the soil. The piece is a mid-grey colour and is most likely to be a lead alloy. A direct parallel has not been found. The artefact measures 27.4mm long, …

An incomplete cast copper artefact of unknown function most probably of post medieval date (AD 1600-1800). The artefact is handmade being broadly rectangular in plan with four uneven sides and a square shaped hole through the centre (13.7mm x 14.5mm). It is undecorated although the upper and lower (top and bottom) faces differ both having slight or chamfered sides. It is possible that the central hole was formed by drilling the corners and using a file to shape. It has a mid-green well preserved thick patina although the surface is abraded by movement within the ploughzone. A direct p…

Cast copper alloy fitting, hollow, D sectioned with a 2.0mm wide x 0.9mm deep, square sectioned, transverse rib around its wider end. Both ends are now open but the opening on the flatter end may be a result of damage. The date and function of this object are unknown. It section, at 2.1mm at the open end and 1,0mm at the open end is too thin for it to be a Bronze Age gouge and a later date seems likely. Length 46.5mm, Width 27.6mm, Thickness 14.5mm, Mass 35.86g (including earth fill).

Silver unidentified object. A small, probably cast, flat-sided annular object, resembling a cog with a series of twelve rounded 'teeth' interrupted by a short [3mm] straight bar. This might have been taken to indicate the loss of another tooth or two were the central aperture not also slightly expanded towards the bar, which is its only departure from an otherwise circular form. The finder kindly reports that his own tests [of an unspecified nature] suggest the object to be silver gilt. The fine modelling might point to a mechanical function, but the gilding carries across the 'teeth' …
