Copper-alloy fragment of unknown function and date. The fragment consists of a point with a square base which appears to have been ripped from a ring; a section of the ring survives as a flat, rectangular flap attached at one corner to the point. The fragment has a dark green patina. It is 27.56mm in length, 19.52mm in width and 10.57mm at maximum thickness. It weighs 13.79g. This is clearly part of a larger object but, until parallels are found, the function and date of this fragment must remain uncertain.

Lead-alloy square component from unidentified object of probable post-medieval date, (c. 1500 - 1750 AD). The object is thick and square, with a D-shaped protrusion positioned to one side. The upper face has an incised circular motif. The bottom face has two ridges and a parallel irregular linear bump from casting, all three positioned evenly across the face; these suggest that this object is a component that was fixed to something else. The object is dark grey in colour. It is 22.41mm in length, 20.18mm in width and 8.59mm in thickness. It weighs 22.94g.

Lead toy of post-medieval date (c. 1600 - 1800 AD), probably a cannon or whistle. The object is cylindrical and hollow. The mouth of the cylinder is ridged at one end and instepped at the other. Two further ridges run along the length of the object on either side. Fragmentary triangular and rectangular decorative mouldings extend from these ridges. Further decorative features include an oval design on both faces.
