Cast copper alloy side plate from the hilt of a knife. The plate is sub-rectangular in shape. There is a break at one end, but the rest of the plate remains intact and in fairly good condition. The reverse has a raised ridge running along the outside edge, creating a central slot to hoild the tang of the knife, but is otherwise undecorated. The upper face has a central recessed panel with raised letters within it. These are difficult to decipher and this task is made more difficult because the first part of the inscription is missing due to the break. They appear to say [...]MAKE YOUr…

An incomplete tertiary retouched flake of Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. The flake has a visible bulb of percussion on the ventral face which has been partially removed by the very large bulbar scar due to a flaw in the flint. The distal end has snapped, as has the proximal right corner. There is short scalar abrupt retouch at the proximal end of the left edge and along the remaining part of the right edge of the dorsal face. Towards the centre of the left edge the retouch becomes longer and semi-abrupt. The flint is light-mid grey in colour.

Roman cast copper-alloy Colchester derivative Dolphin type brooch with hinged pin dating to c. AD 55-100. The brooch is highly corroded, obscuring some details of the decoration but is also probably mis-cast with a large irregular mass of corroded metal between the bow and one wing. The brooch has a cylindrical head with open ends to the wings and slightly expanded terminals, a copper alloy spindle for the hinge runs through from end to end. One terminal is broken but both wings appear to be decorated with at least six narrow raised collars the same size as the terminals, arranged a…

Cast copper alloy sexfoil stud. It is slightly convex on the front and concave on the back. The petals are defined by indented lines which meet in the centre and the outer edge is cusped.
