An incomplete cast copper alloy early-medieval (Anglo-Saxon) small-long brooch dating from c. AD 475-c. 600. The brooch has a rectangular head without decoration, apart from two vertical lines of the bow which appear to be casting lines. The upper bow is arched with raised rectangular sections above and below the raised central section, which has a medial ridge. The lower part of the bow projects outwards and again has horizontal linear ribbed mouldings above the foot and terminal of the brooch, which is now broken and missing.

Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy strap fitting or decorative belt mount of Post-Medieval date. It has a flat lozenge shaped plate with trefoil- shaped terminals at each end. The front face has moulded and enamelled decoration comprising central scrolled motifs with inlaid white enamel, the trefoil terminals retaining some black enamel. The back face is flat and undecorated, and at each end has incomplete but integrally cast rivet spikes that would have secured the mount to a leather strap. The style of enamelling suggests a 17th century AD, or possibly slightly later, date.

A fragment of Roman copper-alloy vessel; a handle in the form of a bird's head with long curving neck, perhaps a swan. The break across the neck, which is oval in cross-section, retains part of the vessel wall from to which it was originally attached. The handle fragment is curving in profile and has an elongated beak which is slightly up-turned with pointed tip. Grooved decoration, some of it curvilinear, is only just apparent behind the head due to wear however on one side of the head an eye and sweeping plumage can be seen. There are several examples of these objects recorded on th…

Object type: INGOT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead ingot. A small plano-convex discoid ingot made by filling a shallow hollow with molten lead. The smooth upper surface of the ingot suggests this was done by pouring metal in a eutectic state and at a high temperature, rather than it being dribbled more casually or gradually. The uneven convex basal side bears impressions possibly attributable to coarse sand on a casting bed. The lack of patina may suggest a relatively recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1900. Diameter: 66.5mm, Thickness: 11mm, Weight: c.245gms

An incomplete copper-alloy possible dress pin of uncertain date. The shaft of the pin is circular in cross section, tapering a little from 2.50mm in diameter to 2mm in diameter in the length extant. The shaft of the pin has a sharp point at one end but this is probably the break, rather than the fulll extent of the original item.

There is a small collar above which is the skull of the animal, roughly spherical, with a raised moulding of two sub-triangular features either side to represent …

Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy penannular brooch of Late Iron Age to early-medieval date. The brooch is broadly penannular in plan (some distortion has occured) with a circular cross section. The terminals of the brooch are flattened although they do appear to have a slight upwards curve, which suggests that the would have had reflexed (returning) terminals. No pin survives. One section of the brooch frame is thinner and more worn than the rest. There is no decoration however if the now missing terminals had incised decoration then this would refine the dating; as it is, this plain form of…

An incomplete cast copper alloy mount of late early-medieval (Anglo-Scandinavian) date. The mount is in the Urnes style having interlaced beast(s) in an openwork frame. Two, or possibly three edges of the mount are complete; the openwork frame is curved however the original shape of the mount is undefined; the beasts may be quadrapeds however due to the incompleteness of the mount it is hard to define. Two areas of applied silvering survive on the surface of the mount; it is likely that originally the entire upper surface was silvered. The reverse of the frame does not offer any clues …

A medieval copper-alloy seal matrix, dating to circa 1200-1300. The seal is pointed oval in plan, and plano-convex in section. On the reverse at the top is a small integral loop. The seal is elaborately decorated and it survives in an excellent condition. The device (when seen as an impression) shows a large, elaborate canopy with a crowned, standing figure to the right. This figure appears to be female, and in which case is probably Mary. She holds a small jug in her left hand. On her chest is what appears to be an eagle set with a bulbous-headed cross on the centre.The same motif is …

A complete post-medieval cast copper-alloy casket key, AD1500-1600. The key has a kidney-shaped bow with two internal projections.

A copper alloy and gilded fitting of Medieval date, of uncertain function. The object consists of an arm, which is D-shaped in cross-section, and a semi-circular incomplete 'frame'.
