Roman copper alloy bow brooch of Trumpet type and of Chester sub-type (hull's Type 154) and of 1st or 2nd century AD date The brooch is incomplete, missing the foot, catch-plate and spring and is heavily-corroded (with a surviving length of 39.7mm, a surviving depth of 20.0mm and a weight of 6.1g).

Prehistoric flint knife or awl, probably of Neolithic date The knife is incomplete with the tip fragment represented (with a surviving length of 32.2mm, a maximum thickness of 4.0mm and a weight of 2.3g).

Both sides are retouched along their entire surviving lengths, as they converge to the tip. The retouch is confined to the dorsal surface, although …

A complete copper alloy Early Bronze Age flanged axehead. This axehead has a rounded arched butt and slightly diverging sides that abruptly expand to a broad crescentic blade and cutting edge, with the blade tips at right angles to the sides, but not recurving. Cast flanges extend along the sides, rising very gradually from the butt towards the middle of the axe and sloping down again to the blade expansion. This gives the axe a very shallow lenticular side profile. The flanges are slightly triple-faceted, so are slightly angled inwards on both faces and on one side very faint trac…
