A composite lead/iron object of indeterminate date and use but, it does have the look of 'age'. Consisting of lead crudely moulded around an iron bar it probably dates to the Roman period but could be a lot later too; c. 100 - 1500 AD. The lead is cast into an irregular ball form, around the flat rectangular section of iron, which appears to curve away from the main body of the lead, perhaps to form a large loop, or fixing device. Dating and use is problematic, but it may be Roman, based on other local finds. As to use, it is possibly a lead mounting plug or clamp for an iron attachmen…

An incomplete copper-alloy Roman knife handle c. 50 - 400 AD. This is an example of the openwork 'hare and hound' series of folding-knife handles, an example of which has been found in excavations at Richborough, Kent (Bushe-Fox; 1949; pp.129). The design is three-dimensional and depicts a stylised hound and hare in the chase. There is a well-defined longitudinal slot of the blade at the base. This example has been damaged, with the fulcrum for the blade missing and the form is then bent and broken with a clean mid-green patina.

Object type: GAMING PIECE
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast lead alloy object in the form of a pyramid with the vague impression of having an octagonal base/sides. Of uncertain date and use, this object could be dated from the Roman period, to the post medieval. Found in proximity to an early medieval find, it may fit that period. As to use, it may be a simple weight or perhaps, a gaming piece. There is no visible decoration and the base has a modestly domed form which may give support to the notion of a gaming piece, being easily moved on a gaming surface.. The surface has encrusted oxidation and surface 'crazing'.
