Silver artefact comprising a bar with three thistle heads spaced at even intervals. The purpose of this object is unclear. Something may have been attached to the bar between the thistle ornaments and turned around it. Given that we are unaware of its function, it is very difficult to date. So possibly later than 1710. As the find cannot be securely dated to pre-1710 it falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996.

Description: The object is a strip of silver with a pattern of what appear to be stamped lines on one side, cut at both ends and bent. There are no visible test marks, and no trace of solder or other fastening. Dimensions: 8mm wide, and 1mm thick. Weight 4.52g Discussion: The object has some similarities with so-called broad-band arm-rings of the late 9th and 10th centuries, produced in Viking contexts around the Irish Sea. Such pieces were commonly cut-up as 'hack-silver', valued by weight within a bullion economy. Finds of arm-rings of this type are recorded from Viking hoar…

Treasure Case: 2015 T597. Silver toothpick/earscoop with sickle-shaped pick, bent out of shape, with flattened sides. The incomplete pick emerges from the body of a stylised dragon, shaped so as to serve as a handle. Midway along the upper side of the dragon's body is an incomplete suspension loop. The dragon's body is marked with scales. From the dragon's open mouth, as if it were the dragon's tongue, emerges a strip of silver which terminates with a recent break and would have had an earscoop at the end when complete.

A silver thimble probably of post-Medieval date. The object is sub-circular in plan and is domed.

A complete silver thimble of post-medieval date. The thimble has irregular pits which run down the sides in straight rows; each pit is divided from the next by vertical and horizontal incised lines forming a square grid like effect. The crown of the thimble is domed and has a central pit surrounded by two circumferential grooves. This is surrounded by circles of pits which are again divided into a grid-like formation with the squares instead forming a trapezoidal shape corresponding to the widening dome. An un-pitted band separates the sides from the dome. The rim, also un-pitted, …

Partly gilded silver stylus, now bent and incomplete. The eraser is spatulate, flaring with straight sides to a wide triangle. The edges of the eraser's end are wholly or substantially missing, although there is a short length of what may be a deliberate border groove at the left-hand corner and this may mark a small fragment of original edge, which may have been convex. There is also a similar groove along the left-hand side of the eraser, but its decorative nature is doubtful as it is not very well made, there is no matching groove on the opposite side, and it runs awkwardly onto th…

A silver fragment possibly from a strap end or a terminal. The fragment is formed of a folded sheet of silver decorated on both sides with incised engraved lines and secured with a rivet. The cavity within is compacted with a material which may be due to the object's burial. Affixed to this folded sheet is a finial in the form of a beast's head, possibly a lion, and a collared knop. On the reverse of this fitting the knop is in the round and the beast's head section is flat, this tapers to a point along the back the engraved sheet of silver. No clear comparison for this object can …

Description Silver strap-end with incised zoomorphic designs, set against a niello background. The sides of the strap-end are of slightly convex form, and the border is notched to form a coarsely beaded band. The split attachment end has two circular rivet holes (one retaining its rivet), below which is a centrally placed, incised, trilobate palmette motif.

Description: Silver strap-end of Thomas's Class A, type 1, originally decorated in Trewhiddle style, but later re-worked to depict a human figure, perhaps imitating a 'Heiligenfibel' or 'Saint' brooch. The original strap-end is extremely well made. It has a split attachment end, although the two halves are now pressed closely together with no gap in between and indeed appear never to have been apart. The attachment end is shaped around two very small rivet holes, c. 0.8mm in diameter, with a tiny point in between. A fan- or pelta-shaped motif below this has a central drop-shaped fi…
