An incomplete cast copper alloy and enamelled lozenge-shaped plate brooch of Roman date (c. AD 100 – c. AD 200). Length: 27.3mm; width: 20.4mm and 6.1mm thick. Weight: 2.61g. The pin is missing. Part of the plate, part of one of the pin lugs and part of the catch-plate are missing due to old breaks. The edges are up-turned to form a distinct narrow rim which appears to have been punched to form denticulated decoration. However, this is barely visible and unclear due to corrosion. The centre of the brooch is raised in one step and contains a lozenge-shaped field with enamelled m…

A fragment of a ceramic vessel of probable Iron Age date (800 BC - AD 43). Length: 19.0mm; width: 28.0mm and 11.0mm thick. Weight: 5.87g. This undecorated fragment is part of the rim and is sparsely tempered with relatively large pieces of whitish angular flint. The coarse surface is a brown (Munsell Color 7.5YR 5/4). There is insufficient rim to enable the diameter of the vessel to be estimated. The fragment is in a stable condition and has fresh breaks.

Part of a cast copper alloy mount (possibly) of probable Early-Medieval date AD 410 – AD 1066). Length: 29.5mm, width: 29.6mm and 2.7mm thick. Weight: 4.88g.

An incomplete cast copper alloy Early Roman Colchester derivative brooch (AD 50 – AD 80). Overall length 22.8mm, width 33.0 and maximum thickness 3.9mm. Weight 5.99g. The lower part of the bow and catch-plate are missing due to an old break. The spring mechanism (including the chord) and pin are also missing. The wings which are 33.0mm in width are semi-cylindrical (concave at the rear).

A gilded cast copper alloy object. Possibly part of a vessel of Medieval, fourteenth to fifteenth century date (AD 1300 - AD 1500). Length 18.9mm, width 17.3mm and 11.8mm thick. Weight 9.84g.
