An incomplete flint single platform core, probably of Neolithic date. The flint is mottled and dark brown-grey in colour, with occasional lighter speckles in places and a glossy patina. Pebble cortex remains, covering a few of the surfaces. Four main large flaking scars are visible from the surving core. The broken top of the core appears to have been burnt, small fractures and hackled breaks are visible.

A retouched flake which is possibly a retouched core fragment. There is no visible striking platform on the flake, on the ventral face there is a clear bulb of percussion and a bulbar scar. There are long flake removals in both directions on the dorsal face, suggesting a Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. The flake has been snapped before the distal end and has evidence of retouch along the right side of the dorsal face from the proximal end to the break. The retouch is short and scalar, which creates a projecting knotch c. 4.5mm suggesting the flake was being fashioned into a tool b…

The artefact consists of a cylindrical wing which would to hold the axis bar for the hinged pin. the axis bar is still visible within the wing, the wing has a number of horizontal incisions which are abraded. It is now 16.35 mm long, 6.85 mm wide including the wing and 6.2 mm thick; it weighs 2.78 grams. T-shaped brooches are very variable in the decoration on their bows. Bayley and Butler (2004:167) suggest this type is mainly South Western in distribution and dates to the …

A crudely worked flint scraper of Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. Sub-rectangular scraper made of medium grey-brown flint which is mottled. A coarsely worked striking platform is visible, with a bulb of percussion and a bulbar scar on the ventral face. The right side of the ventral face has projections due to the inherent weaknesses within the flint. There is long semi-parallel abrupt retouch on the dorsal face at the distal end. The dorsal face shows evidence of previous flake removals from multiple directions.

A Neolithic to Bronze Age flint scraper. The scraper is a fragment of a Neolithic polished axe head which has been broken and reused. There are numerous ripples visible on the ventral face, no striking platform or bulb of percussion is visible as the proximal end has a snap and it is probable the break was accidental.

A fragment of a Medieval or Post-Medieval copper alloy vessel rim. The rim is slightly thickened with a slight swelling on the inner side. The outer surface is roughly cast and covered with soot, the inner surface is smooth. The curve of the fragment suggests the vessel was 200-240mm in diameter but from such a small fragment it is hard to be certain. The fragment is 38mm long and 24.3mm wide, and its thickness varies from 1.6 mm to 3.5mm near the rim. It weighs 9.68 grams.

Incomplete cast copper alloy Roman brooch of initial T-shaped type. The head has two short, tubular wings with a central slot in which the pin head hinges. A wire, probably copper alloy, runs through these wings; white paste visible in the end of one wing is probably solder holding it in place. The wings have two incised lines at the ends, one wing has suffered a small amount of damage so that only one line remains. The head of the pin is a copper alloy plate, with a piercing to allow the wire within the wings to pass through, securing it in place and allowing it to hinge. This plate …

Seven cast lead vessel repairs (pot mends). All have the characteristic H-shaped section with two irregularly shaped outer sides, one larger than the other, joined by a smaller central section. None of them retain any of the original pot in the grrove created between the outer sides. Total weight 70.04 grams. Pot mends of this form are found in both Roman and Medieval periods, as a common way to repair broken pottery vessels. The lack of any vessel material left in the groove means they cannot be dated directly but they are likely to be Roman given the other material on the site.

A cast copper alloy leg from a Medieval to Post Medieval vessel. The leg appears trapezoid shaped in cross section with a flat front and rounded back. The leg terminates in an outward facing foot. The front of the leg has a raised central rib running down the lengh. It measures 86.1mm in length, 52.9mm in width and 25.0mm in thickness. Butler, Green and Payne (2009, pg 4) do not record an example identical to this but it is perhaps most similar to their Type 'a' which was widespread in the Medieval period with examples known into the early 17th century.

Medieval silver penny of Henry VI first reign (1422-1461), probably Pinecone-Mascle issue, minted at Durham, AD 1430-1434, North (1991:77) no.1467var. The coin appears to have a mascle stop at the end of the reverse legend, this is seen in both the Rosette-Mascle (SUR-500FA0) and Pinecone-Mascle types. The initial cross is unclear but is none on the reverse. This, combined with the lack of star to the left of the crown suggests it is a Pinecone-Mascle varient. See SUSS-A02386 for another example of the same varient.

A cast copper-alloy medieval or post-medieval vessel leg or handle. It has been mis-cast, the front and one side appear complete. The back and one side is missing. The current back surface is flat and there are metal runs, probably signs of mis-casting where the metal does not seem to have completely filled the mould, leaving one side of the leg mis-shapen rather than broken. The leg is trapezoidal in plan, wider at the point where it would have attached to the body of the vessel and tapering to the terminal; a square end with rounded corners, one corner of which is missing to an old …

A total of 233 pieces of lead ball shot, brought in for recording in batches of 125, 91 and 17 respectively, but here amalgamated as from the same findspot. A large number (100) have a weight of 11g +/- 1.5g, with a second main group (31) around 32g +/- 1.5g. This suggests a predominant use of pistol shot, with a notable presence of musket shot according to the main calibre divisions (Foard and Morris 2012, 121). If Hardings (2012) wider brackets are used there are 120 of 7-16 grams interpreted as pistol and 43 of 30-48 grams. Equally notable is an absence of much shot of intermediate…
