Late Iron Age or Roman copper alloy zoomorphic mount, probably from a vessel The mount appears to be complete or near-complete (with an overall length of 58.7mm and a weight of 47.4g) and depicts a beast, probably a dog but possibly a pig cast in the round. The beast's snout is concave and would appear to be too elongated for a pig. The end of the snout appears to have two circular depressions depicting the nostrils. The mouth of the beast is biting on a piece of ferrous plate on one side, possibly the rim of a vessel. The plate does not extend to the opposite side. The eyes are …

Curved cast bronze fragment, possibly a strap handle from a later prehistoric cauldron or metal vessel. The strap fragment has a little of the attachment plate surviving before two wide and rounded ribs. The strap is curved and would have secured the circular ring handle. Similar fittings can be found on the Llyn Fawr cauldrons and other sheet metal vessels from the Later Prehistoric period.

Cast copper alloy ewer or laver spout of late Medieval date, probably dating from the 15-16th centuries. The spout is shaped in the form of a duck's head. Many ewer spouts are in the form of dog's heads such as the example recovered from Cardiff Castle (Lewis 1991, 4, fig. 8A), although duck head spouts have been recorded. The duck eyes are defined by an incised circular ring, the bill is open with a protruding short barrel emerging from the animal's mouth. The top of the animal's head is decorated with short incised lines at the centre and above the brows.

Near complete copper alloy escutcheon from a hanging bowl or bucket, probably of Late Iron Age date, C. 50 BC to 100 AD. The escutcheon body is of globular form with an integral large incomplete loop, presumably to secure a handle. The body of the mount appears slightly domed, and is decorated with a motif consisting of two high raised moulded opposed semicircular arcs, with a slight break in-between the two. Beneath the raised motif is a circular attachment hole, placed off centre and surrounded with iron corrosion. It is possible to suggest this means of attachment is a secondary rep…

Copper-alloy leg from a medieval or post-medieval cooking vessel, perhaps a cauldron or skillet. This is a short rectangular-sectioned leg with a bevelled base resulting in the bottom of the leg forming a narrow edge. The leg has broken at the junction with the body of the vessel, and rises to become expanded, with a concave upper surface. The patina and corrosion of the fragment suggests burning, as would be expected with a cooking vessel.

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.
