Copper alloy bead or decorative fitting of uncertain date possibly Late Iron Age or Roman The bead is complete and is of globular form (with an external diameter of 23.1mm -24.4mm and a weight of 27.9g), with gently convex faces producing an oval section (with a thickness of 11.8mm). The sub-circular perforation (4.0mm - 4.9mm) is not central and is cast into the bead, rather than drilled. Both faces are decorated around the perforation; one side has an incised border, in which are incised radiating lines. The other face has an incised border, which is misplaced to produce a cresce…

Decorative copper alloy terminal or handle of uncertain date, possibly post medieval The item is part of a composite object (with a length of 35.9mm and a weight of 8.4g). The object is hollow and contains remnants of a shaft, probably of wood. The mouth is now distorted and closed (with a length of 14.2mm and a compressed thickness of 4.2mm). The object then narrows before flaring out at the rounded and thickened end (with a maximum thickness of 10.6mm). The object has a corroded perforation on one side and one face has a decorative incised border, now worn. The surface is dark grey…

Stone anthropomorphic figurine of uncertain function and probably of post medieval to modern date The figurine is made in quartz stone and is incomplete, missing the lower legs (with a surviving length of 22.4mm, a width of 8.3mm and a weight of 1.6g). It is carved in the round and is somewhat water-rounded and rolled. The item depicts a standing female figure with both arms to the front and angled, holding the swollen abdomen (giving the figure a maximum thickness of 7.0mm) and presumably representing pregnancy. Details of the hands are not represented. Facial details are discernib…

Stone spindle-whorl of uncertain date, Roman to early Post Medieval, c. 100 - 1700 The comparatively regular and circular spindle-whorl (of 34.9 - 35.8mm diameter and weighing 18.0g) is made from a coarse-grained, micaeous sandstone, now with polished surfaces. The spindle-whorl is of sub-rectangular section (7.9-8.4mm thick) with slightly flat faces. The perforation is central and is circular (5.0mm diameter) with straight parallel sides. There is little surviving evidence of decoration on the worn faces, although a single incised line bisecting one face is discernible and may be d…

Lead alloy button of uncertain date, probably medieval or early Post Medieval The button is complete (with an overall depth of 12.1mm and a weight of 14.6g). The head is sub-circular (with a diameter of 28.6mm - 29.6mm and 5mm thick). The face is slightly convex and is decorated with three cast concentric ribs around a central knop. The underside has a comparatively heavy attachment loop (6.8mm thick, 13.7mm long and 6.8mm high) of D-shaped section. The perforation (3.3mm diameter) has been cast by inserting a rod into the mold, which has formed the parallel ribs, or guides running i…

Prehistoric flint retouched flake, probably of Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date The flake is complete (with a length of 25.1mm, a width of 21.8mm, a thickness of 6.4mm and a weight of 2.6g). The retouch is neatly worked on a small distal area of one side (9mm long), with an area of utilisation on the proximal part of the same side. Both the retouch and utilisation are on the ventral surface of the flake. The dorsal surface displays evidence of core-preparation abutting the striking platform. The flake is made on grey, unpatinated flint.

Ceramic spindle whorl of uncertain date, probably Roman to Medieval .The spindle-whorl is near circular (with a diameter of 34.4mm) and of sub-rectangular section (with a thickness of 9.3mm) with some damage to the edge. There is slight curvature on both faces (one face is convex and the other concave), suggesting the spindle-whorl is made on a body sherd of a large vessel. The central aperture is circular with parallel straight sides (8.0mm). The pottery fabric is well fired and coarse with quartz inclusions. The pottery may be of Roman or medieval date. The whorl has a weight o…

Utilised animal bone of uncertain date The bone is incomplete, missing the proximal end (with a surviving length of 216mm and a weight of 333.6g) and is a metatarsal from a large bovine, probably an auroch. The damaged end of the bone is heavily eroded and worn, with a number of worn abrasions near the end, suggestive of animal gnawing. There is a circular perforation (9.5mm diameter) near the distal end, positioned at the centre and adjacent to the medial trochlea. The perforation is regular and parallel-sided, suggesting it was drilled with a metal bit. Other than the perforation,…

Medieval to post medieval copper alloy looped fitting The fitting is complete (with a length of 25.2mm, a depth of 8.0mm, a thickness of 1.5mm and a weight of 2.2g). The fitting resembles a fish shape with a sub-triangular terminal (giving the fitting a maximum width of 12.3mm) and is gently convex across its width. On the rear (near the pointed end) is an integral, circular sectioned loop (8.2mm wide, 1.8mm diameter and 6.4mm high) defining a circular aperture (4.4mm diameter). Little of the original surface survives on the fitting and no applied decoration is discernible. The s…

Copper alloy fragment of uncertain date, possibly Roman The fragment is cast and broken on three sides (with a surviving length of 24.3mm, a surviving height of 17.3mm, a thickness of 12.9mm and a weight of 21.8g). The fragment appears to comprise an integral loop (of approximately 20mm diameter) and base, or similar. The separation of the two integral components is defined by an applied groove. There is the beginning of an angular projection below the loop on one side. The underside of the fragment has a narrow slot. The surface is worn and slightly pitted with a pale green patina.…

Copper alloy looped fitting, probably from a vessel of uncertain date. The loop is cast and is complete (with an overall length of 31.2mm and a weight of 25.2g). The loop is oval (with a height of 26.4mm and a width of 30.6mm; 13.9mm x 17.4mm internal) and is comparatively substantial with a sub-oval section (7.9mm wide and 6.7mm thick). Wear facets are now difficult to discern on the interior of the loop. The loop was attached by an integral rivet, which has been peened-over on the face. The inside end of the rivet also has a linear incised line, perpendicular to the axis of the lo…

Copper alloy ingot of uncertain date The ingot is of small 'finger' form and is complete (with a length of 41.2mm and a weight of 9.1g). The ingot was simply cast, probably within a simple depression and is of irregular oval section (with a maximum width of 6.7mm and a maximum thickness of 5.9mm). The ingot is not diagnostic and is therefore difficult to date; ingots of this form in precious metals have been found associated with Viking period finds.

Copper / lead alloy fitting of uncertain date The fitting appears to be complete or near complete (with a length of 20.1mm, a width of 18.8mm, a thickness of 7.3mm and a weight of 6.6g). The fitting is slightly convex across its width and the sides are straight and near-parallel. The face is ribbed and probably formed three central circular holes, only one of which survives (of 4.5mm diameter). The rear is flat and has two stubs on one side, possibly the remnants of loop. The surface is a pale-green to grey, implying a lead-rich alloy. It is unclear what the fitting is from or fr…
