Copper alloy pan-weight of uncertain date The weight is circular and is rectangular sectioned (with a diameter of 15.5mm and a thickness of 3.3mm). The face is decorated a concentric ring and inner depression, possibly turned. The reverse is flat and has three punched indentations, possibly in a triangular arrangement. The surface has a mid-green patina with file marks evident on the underside. The weight now weighs 2.92g, equivalent to 0.103 ounce and it is possible that the weight was a one-eighth ounce weight under the Mercantile, Avoirdupois or Tower systems (equivalent to 3…

Copper alloy zoomorphic mount, probably from a vessel handle or lid and of Early Roman date. The mount depicts a sitting quadruped with its front legs extending out in front of the body, and possibly representing a bear or a dog. The animal is naturalistic in style. The hair is depicted by incised lines over the body, except for the top of the back, where a rectangular panel is decorated with two incised diagonal crosses divided by a single incised line. On the rear of the animal there is an integral flat circular perforated lug covered with iron corrosion, and possibly representing a …

Rim fragment of a vessel, probably of Late Medieval date. The fragment is relatively thin and is suggestive of a vessel with a comparatively small rim diameter (originally approximately 70mm), possibly suggesting a fragment from a jug or tankard, similar to a mid 14th century tankard found at Caerphilly Castle (Lewis, 1978). The vessel has an incised or turned decorative band on the exterior, at the position of slight shoulder, two narrower incised lines flank the band.

Cast copper alloy vessel escutcheon or mount in the form of a bird’s head. The escutcheon has a lower flat panel representing the breast of the bird and decorated with incised diagonal lines meeting at a central vertical line, beneath each of the diagonal lines are a row of chevrons to indicate the feathers. At the top of the panel is a circular drilled hole, possibly to hold a handle. The top of the perforation corresponds to the level of a step in the mount, presumably to house the vessel rim. The top of the mount is in the form of a pointed bird’s head with incised oval-shaped e…

Cast copper alloy cauldron or skillet leg of Medieval date, probably dating from 13th - 16th century. The front of the leg has a prominent central rib and the rear of the leg has two chamfered edges. The fragment widens to an expanded foot. The leg has broken before the body of the vessel. The leg exhibits heavy carbon deposits as a result of repeated burning, as would be expected on the surface of a cooking vessel.

Crude copper alloy sub-conical casting with a flat basal end and sub-circular section. Dimensions 26mm x 20mm x 18mm, weight 23.4 grams. Identification is difficult; superficially the casting resembles the lower part of a vessel foot but it may also be an oddly shaped casting jet. Date uncertain.

Copper alloy anthropomorphic terminal of uncertain date The terminal is in the form of a human head and has broken across the neck (with a surviving length of 18.6mm, a maximum width of 8.6mm, a maximum thickness of 10.4mm and a weight of 7.5g). The terminal is heavily-corroded and the corrosion has removed much of the detail, there are depressions depicting the eyes and a central ridge is evident indicating the position of the nose. Another depression surviving on one side only is likely to depict a ear. The surviving form and style would indicate a comparatively naturalistic de…

Copper alloy decorative terminal, possibly from a pin of Roman date The object is fragmentary, represented by the damaged terminal; a shaft fragment (with a surviving length of 33.4mm and a weight of 3.4g).

The shaft is circular sectioned and gradually widens (from a diameter of 2.8mm to 5.0mm) before narrowing slightly towards the break. The surface has a d…

Near complete, bur corroded copper alloy toy riffle or petronel of Post Medieval date, probably 17th century. The butt is slender and rises to a point with a damaged ‘guard’. The butt gradually thickens towards the barrel and was decorated with ring and dot decoration. The barrel is of faceted-circular section and has a small circular hole on one side to take a charge. The barrel of the gun is blocked from the end, presumably with the ram rod.

Post medieval copper alloy toy gun of 17th - 18th century date The gun is incomplete missing the butt and trigger guard (with a surviving length of 57.9mm and a weight of 12.8g). The barrel is of sub-oval section, with straight, faceted sides and is widest at the stock (at 6.8mm and 5.3mm x 6.8mm at the end of the barrel). The corrosion has closed barrel, making it difficult to determine the bore. The vent is small and is also closed by corrosion with a rounded wedge beneath the pan, which may have served as a hold for the match (Egan & Forsyth 2005, 89). Possibly Egan and Forsyt…

Late Iron Age copper alloy bead from a beaded torc of 1st to early 2nd century AD date The bead is of cruciform or quatrefoil form (with a length of 24.6mm, width of 22.6mm and a weight of 3.4g) and has a central sub-square aperture (9.4mm x 8.4mm) through the central flat-sectioned plate (0.7mm thick) to accommodate the iron rod, on which the beads would have been 'strung'. The four lobes are oval and convex (with a length of 10mm and a width of 8mm) with flanges on both faces to accommodate adjacent beads. Only one of the lobes has decoration, comprising linear incised lines, seemi…
