A cast copper alloy mount in the form of a female figure of probable late Medieval date (c. 1400-c. 1500). The standing figure is cloaked and appears to be female. She is holding what may be a palm branch in her left hand and apparently an open book in her right. She may be St Barbara. However, there is no indication of a tower that is associated with St Barbara. The figure has an oval base with the remains of a central tang, circular in cross-section. The rear face of the figure is flat. It is possible that the figure is a representation of the Madonna and Child. The object …

A Medieval silver coin brooch. Treasure case no. 2009 T475. This brooch is made from a silver penny of William I, type VII, Profile/Cross and trefoils, issued by the moneyer Ælfwig of London, towards the end of William's reign. The coin has been transformed into a brooch by riveting a pin-fitting to the coin with two large silver rivets. The rivets remain, but the fitting itself has largely disappeared, although traces of corrosion products indicate that this had a single base plate spanning both rivets. The pin was attached to the obverse of the coin, meaning that the reverse, which…
