A fragment of a copper-alloy hinged Roman strap fitting, dating to the period AD 200-300. What remains of the plate is openwork, with a triangular pattern, and measures 17.79mm in height and 38.41mm in width. The triangular perforation encapsulates a 'wheel', it is likely that there would have been one either side, mirroring what can be seen here, but the fitting is fragmentary. There are three rectangular grooves on the left, traversing the height of the fragment, broadly measuring 2.43mm length and width. Within these rectangles are evidence of what now resembles blue enamel, and eac…

Cast copper unidentified object, possibly a Roman mirror handle dating from c. AD43-410. It is in very good condition without any corrisive products present on the surface. It is straight, with a circular cross-section and one forked end. There are very small rivet holes in the two sides of the fork, probably for attaching it to the actual mirror plate which would have also been made from copper-alloy, but highly polished. The handle is decorated with a simple egg-and-reel motif/mouldings.
