Description: The find comprises five finds: two stave-built tankards with copper alloy fittings, a pair of shears, a circular iron knife and a ceramic vessel. The objects have not yet been closely examined, as they are extremely fragile, and considerable conservation work would be needed to make a more complete investigation possible. White powdery material apparent in the soil recovered during the excavation may represent powdered bone, or may be chalk. No fragments of bone of any size or recognizable shape has survived. Tankard 1 - This object is in a fragile state and retains …

A short section of a flat, rectangular-sectioned gold ingot, trapezoidal in plan. Shows clear evidence of having been chiselled at both of the narrow ends. This object bears some similarity to small flat ingots used in the Viking period, and often broken up for the purposes of trade. However, the form is undiagnostic, and it could also date to an earlier or later period.

Cylindrical copper alloy ingot with circular cross-section. The object gently tapers from a wider end terminating in a flat angled surface to a rounded, slightly narrower, opposite end. On the wider end there is a small area of abrasion where material was removed for testing by a jeweller before the object was submitted as Treasure.

This is probably a fragment of an unusual copper alloy brooch of La Tene I type. The bow is curved with knobbed segments moulded on the upper surface. The brooch probably dates to around the second or third century BC, although no precise parallel has been found. It may be a Late Hallstatt British Group L (Hull & Hawkes 1987), Type 2Lc (Adams 2014, https://lra.le.ac.uk/handle/2381/28593), although the underside of the central four segments is solid, rather than hollow as on BUC-3197B7. It is 31.10mm long, 19.44mm wide, 6.94mm thick and weighs 7.0 grams.
