Copper alloy finger ring, oval in profile and D-shaped in section, with projecting keeled shoulders which rise to a high oval bezel, outlined with incised V-shaped grooves on each shoulder. The upper part of the ring is in quite good condition, well made with a smooth patination. The stone is missing and may have been made of glass or carnelian, as all that remains is an oval patch of black material that would have held the stone in the setting. The stone would likely have had intaglio decoration. Middleton (1998) illustrates a similar ring with recessed shoulders and an oval carnelia…

Post Medieval silver French dixième d'écu dit "aux branches d'olivier" (10 centime piece with olive branches) of Louis XV (1710-1774) dated to 1750 on the reverse. Fractions of the silver ecu were introduced in 1726. The reverse has an oval shield enclosing three fleurs de lys surmounted by a crown and framed by two olive branches. Although the coin is rubbed almost flat, it must have been milled and not hammered, as hammered coins ceased to be produced in France after 1645. The obverse is completely worn away, but a coin with the same reverse (SUSS-862DA2) is illustrated on the data…

Cast lead alloy button with a raised moulded cross on the front face and an integral cast short rectangular shank pierced for attachment on the back. Although the button is crudely made, the type of shank suggests that it is post-medieval in date. According to Bailey (2004) buttons of the Medieval period, dating from the 13th to the 15th century, usually have a cast circular loop for attachment, and a straight casting line on the reverse, as does a lead alloy button illustrated on p.17, fig.6.1. But Bailey also illustrates a lead alloy button with a pierced rectangular shank and no cas…

Copper alloy French shield jetton, struck in Tournai c.1417-1497, after 1423 when Charles VII (1422-1461) introduced the silver Blanc à la coronelle (coin), and late in the 15th century as it is a thick 'piefort' or piedfort, which means heavy foot, jetton, weighing 6.25 g. The introduction of the thick piefort jettons during the 15th century appears to have resulted from the popularisation of a new method for performing the calculations for manual accountancy. A collection of stationary jettons which were heavier like this example were issued as reference points for the lighter mobil…

Cast lead pan weight, circular in plan and trapezoidal in profile with a flat top and sides that expand slightly to the base. The upper face has an incuse tower with three turrets and above it are stamped 'IIII' for four ounces or four Roman unciae, the origin of the word ounce, which equated to 108 g.

The underside is marked with an indistinct triangular impression and there is a deep linear transverse groove just beyond this which appears to be later damage.

Incomplete cast copper alloy mount in the form of a stylised acorn with an integral suspension loop for suspending a sword scabbard from a baldric. The mount is missing its sheet copper alloy backplate that would have been riveted to the hollow back through the small rivet hole, 1 mm in diameter, just below the pointed terminal, in order to mount it on to the leather baldric. The suspension loop would have had a pendant that would have attached to the sword belt or scabbard. The mount is plano-convex in profile with four chamfered longitudinal sides that follow the curvature of the mou…

The suspension loop is still attached to the hook but broken where it would have joined the central mount. The attachment plate of the hook is leaf shaped with small foliate knops at either side just below the hook and at the other end there are two semi-circular cut outs which lead into two larger knops o…

Fragment of a cast copper alloy spur dating from the Post-medieval period. The short sides, which are hemispherical in section, have been broken beyond where the spur would have attached to the boot.

Cast copper alloy cauldron leg, sub-triangular in plan and plano-convex in section. The attachment to the curved vessel body still remains, and the leg then tapers evenly to a transverse collar and then to the foot which has worn to a rounded end. The outer face of the leg has five vertical ribs, varying in width from 7 mm at the edge, to 11 mm in the centre, which terminate at the transverse collar which divides the leg from the foot. The foot might have originally also been ridged, but it is now so worn it has lost its claw-like terminal. The back of the leg is flat and has been deli…
