A corroded, plain copper-alloy rivet-like object which might have been used to hold repairs to a vessel in place. It is sub-oval in plan with a possibly break giving a broadly straight edge to one side. On the lower surface there is an integral protruding prong towards this edge whose terminal protrudes to one side and is flattened at the base. Rolled sheet rivets replaced the earlier folded sheet rivets in pot repairs from the late 15th - 16th centuries (Egan 2005, 101) suggesting a possible late medieval to post-medieval date for this piece. It is of a red-brown metal with patches o…

An unidentified copper alloy object of possibly Post Medieval in date. The object is formed of a strip of copper alloy which has been bent into a C-shape. The strip has a D-shaped cross section, with the flat face being external. This terminates in a leaf-shaped (pointed oval) terminal, the internal face of which is convex with an integrally moulded shallow boss, whilst on the reverse of this is a circular recess, giving the external face a concave appearance. On the other end of the strip, just after the bend of the C, the convex edge expands to create a thickened section with a r…
