A lead alloy (pewter?) button dating from the Post Medieval period, probably the 17th century. Much of the edges are missing, but it probably would originally have been circular.

The fastening loop on the back has broken off. The button has a dark brown patina and is quite badly damaged. It has a length of 24.48mm, width 18.81mm, thickness 4.71mm, weight 5.27g. Compare to WAW-BC31C1, NCL-64E498 and SF3527.

A complete post medieval copper alloy rotary key, 16th century AD. The small key has an oval-bow with a kidney-shaped aperture defined by an inwardly projecting point from the centre where the bow abuts the stem. The hollow stem has been roughly faceted at this proximal end so that it is hexagonal in section; towards the bit of the key, however, the stem expands slightly and progresses to more of a circular section. The key bit projects outwards some 13.74mm, at ninety-degrees to the stem, and is flush with the distal end of it. There is no channel between the bit and the stem, the la…

A Post Medieval copper alloy single sharp-hooked clasp, AD 1500-1650. The clasp belongs to Read's (2008, 87) Class E, as it has been cast with an integral attachment-loop in the same plane as the plate. Within Class E it then falls into Type 3, as the plate is circular. The clasp has been cast with a D-shaped section, having a moulded upper surface and a flat back. The circular plate has been decorated with a six-petalled rose contained within a raised border. The centre of the rose has been replaced with a decorative pierced hole, which itself is defined by a raised border. From one …

This is an interesting lead, possibly medieval spindle whorl. In date, it may be from the Roman times to the late medieval. The central boss is bi-conical and decorated with straight ridged lines to each surface. It then has an unusual feature of an attached outer rope decorated ring. The ring is attached to the core of the body by four lugs or stays. It is a deliberate design feature, perhaps to extend the mass with a smaller amount of lead? See CPAT-39D310 for a similar object. The object is now a whitish grey with lead corrosion.

This is a collection of 13 cast lead alloy musket/balls of possible 17th century origin. These balls have not been trimmed and are in unused condition. They were found in a field within a small area and nearby to a further find in the next field’ of another 6 balls. All but one of the ball are around 0.76 inch with one smaller ball at 0.67 inch. This collection has a more marked oxidation to the surface from those of CPAT8A754, perhaps due to the conditions within the soil/use of the field.

A cast copper alloy domed strap fitting, dating to AD 1250-1400, according to references in Dress Accessories and Brian Read's Metal Artefacts of Antiquity (page 23). The central dome is oval with a hollow reverse and horizontal and vertical lines etched across the top surface in a central band. Now missing are two protrusions, one on either side, with a central hole for a rivet to fix it onto the leather strap. These are decorative items rather than functional, although their presence would have acted to stiffen the strap.

There are certainly two small projections that may represent ears, one on each side of the bar where the triangular and flat sections meet. Two circular holes have been drilled in the flat section of the mount, presumably to take mounting rivets: these may have been …

A lozenge-shaped copper alloy mount, slightly bent and with a thick iron backing. The mount is decorated with a triple-strand interlace and is mainly gilded although there is a band of silver which encloses the interlace. Helen Geake comments: The decoration on this object combines triple-strand interlace plus bichrome decoration, suggesting a date late in the sixth century (perhaps 580-600). The interlace is not very good - there seems to be an attempt at a foot below the left-hand side corner but no head, if it is an animal, and it is very assymmetrical. Iron on the re…

A cast copper-alloy Roman brooch. The brooch is an unusual example of the Aesica type. It is composite, formed of two (perhaps three) separately cast components. The upper component forms the open semi-cylindrical housing for the pin mechanism. This mechanism is now missing, but perforations at each end of the housing suggest it may have had a hinged pin. Cast in one with the head is the bow of the brooch. This is arched, and on each side an ornate wing projects from the centre of the bow, giving the brooch the distinct appearance of a bird in flight. Each wing has a rivet in the cent…

A small fragment from the rim of what is probably a cast copper alloy clapper bell. There is no decoration or identifying mark, but the outer surface of the bell displays a smooth grey green patina. The rim is thickened and differs from a vessel rim by being more pointed. The grey sheen suggests a high tin content, examples with up to 25% tin are known (Geake 2001). It dates from the Medieval or post medieval period. The rim diameter is about 200mm, so it is probably a church or school bell rather than a handbell. It is 40.8mm long, 32mm wide and 7.1mm thick. It weighs 22.91gm.
