Cast lead object. The lead is almost flat in section and has been rolled. Waste product from the creation of another object. Possibly Roman in date due to the nature of the site where recovered.

Copper alloy sheet binding from an unidentified object. The object is a single rectangular sheet of copper alloy folded over and riveted together with two copper alloy rivets. The loop is expanded as if it held a rod or similar shaped object. In between the copper alloy sheets there is a strip of iron. The object has come from a site that has produced fair amounts of Roman military material.

Incomplete fragment of cast copper alloy enameled decoration probably dating to the Roman period (50-450 AD). The fragment is an irregular oval shape in plan and slightly bowed (C shaped) in cross section. It measures 16.1mm length 14.4mm width, is 3.4mm thick, and weighs 2.23 grams. On the upper side of the fragment is an enameled design consisting of a circular ring of blue coloured enamel. This ring encloses a central circle. This circle has lost its enamel; however, it is likely that it would have been red or possibly white in colour. At the centre of this inner circle is a further…

Romano-British unidentified object: decorative circular stud. Within a peripheral rim a high central nipple is topped, not by a concavity as is normal on bell-shaped studs, but a small projection. From the flat underside projects a flat, rectangular section, integral shank, which is probably pierced transversely. On the underside all but the end of the shank is covered in decayed iron. Diameter 21mm. Height 12mm. The presence of so much iron, and of the probably pierced integral shank (as opposed to an inserted iron shank) shows this functioned differently to bell-shaped studs that are…

A cast copper-alloy artefact in the form of a hand holding a small spherical object between thumb and forefinger, and emerging from a square pedestal cuff with a flared top and stepped base with double corded decoration. Unfortunately, the images provided (see notes, below) do not show the cross-section of the object. A concomitant description, however, states that the underside of the hole features a circular hole filled with lead. As this description goes on to state, attributing a usage to this object is problematic. Suggestions included a tripod and a key handle, although no par…

The function of the object is not certain. It is a sub semi-circle in plan, however all the edges are abraded so this may not be the objects original shape. There is a punched circular hole near the centre of the straight edge. The upper surface appears to have millefiori enamel decorating it. The enamel consists of a chequered design, every other square has a small blue and white chequer design, the other has a red border with a blue cross within and white fields. This is heavily abraded. The reverse is undecorated, but has a small, abraded ridge near one edge which may have been a mo…

A broken copper-alloy object of uncertain function. The object is very likely to be of Roman date judging from its form and patina. The object has a circular base from which stems a shaft, circular in section. The base of the object measures 19.8 mm in diameter and the shaft is 7 mm thick. The shaft has a decorative rib which is broken, but appears to have once been hexagonal in shape. The shaft is broken at its top, just above an incised line which runs around it, and it is unclear how the artefact would have developed from here. The base has the remains of what is a possible solder o…

Cast copper alloy unidentified object, probably either a stylus or a pin, of unknown date. The artefact is broadly rectangular in plan and oval in cross section. It measures 67.7mm length, 8.2mm width (max), is 7.1 mm thick (max) and weighs 10.34 grams. The description of the pin / stylus can be divided into three parts: the first part is an ornamental terminal / knop which is sub-spherical with a single cast line around the circumference. The top of the sphere / knop is decorated with incised radial lines. Below this terminal is a cylindrical section / body with a wide waste and narro…

Cast cu-alloy object, probably casting residue from the crucible. Approximately 50% are unrecognisable, but the remaining arch resembles the bow of a Colchester one-piece fibula of the 1st century AD. Most of the spring coil is molten, but the part that crossed the head terminal of the bow is still in place(?). The other end of the bow terminates rather abruptly. This could have been a casting flaw and thus the reason why the brooch re-entered the recycling process.

A long, thin cast copper-alloy object. It is rectangular in plan, and in section takes the form of a rectangle with rounded corners. Towards one end of the fragment it twists such that the wider face is perpendicular to the main body of the object. High levels of wear and corrosion make it difficult to attribute this artefact a definitive use. The attribution of a probable Roman date comes primarily from the large amounts of Roman material found in the locale.

A worn cast copper-alloy fragment of probable Roman date. The fragment is essentially rectangular both in plan and in section. It is largely undecorated on all of its faces although a number of raised ridges emerge from the obverse. Since these ridges are broken, as are the ends of the fragment, it is difficult to attribute this artefact a definitive use. The attribution of a probable Roman date comes primarily from the large amounts of Roman material found in the locale.

Unidentified bone object. This object represents half of a tubular object. It is now subrectangular in plan and C shaped in section. Either end of the object has a regular, smooth surface, suggesting that it survives at its original length. Break edges along the length are worn, suggesting damage occurred in antiquity. The object is beige in colour and the bone is cracked along the length of the object. The inner curved surface is notable abraded and cracked. It is 36.4mm long, 28.66mm wide, 5.8mm thick and weighs 8.92g. The date is unknown.

Unidentified copper alloy fragment. This fragment is roughly trapezoidal in plan and triangular in section, in that the upper surface is bevelled. The bevelled surface is decorated with three punched dots, but otherwise the object is plain. The break edges are irregular but worn smooth suggesting damage occurred in antiquity. The object is abraded and most of the original surface is missing, but where it does survive it is dark green. Otherwise the object has a mid green and lighter green patina. The object is 14.08mm long, 8.54mm wide, 2.72m thick and weighs 0.77g. The object clearly …
