Cast lead bar mount with integral rivets, possibly with the function of repairing a vessel. Probably post-medieval with the suggested date range: c.1500 - 1800 AD. The object is flat and broadly rectangular, with ends that narrow to a point. A ridged casting seam is visible across the length of the back face of the object. Also on the back face are the remains of three rivets, one positioned centrally and the others at either end. These have been broken off close to the base and flattened. The abraded nature of the breaks suggests this occurred in antiquity when the object was truncate…

Copper alloy mount. Cast bar-shaped mount with stout cylindrical integrally cast and flat-ended fixing pins of 3.7mm diameter projecting from behind each of its rounded ends, and with bevelled long edges. Probably a recent version of a bar mount or strap stiffener, a post-medieval date being suggested by the integral pins. The dimensions are very close to whole metric units, which might hint at a date after 1800, when Napoleon introduced the metric system to Continental Europe, and possibly to the European manufacture of the object. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1800-1900. Length: 38…
