Cast copper alloy Roman fantail brooch dating to the 2nd century AD. It is very corroded but is mostly complete with just the pin and catchplate missing. It appears to have been hinged. The wings of the head are worn and and one side is almost missing. They would have been rectangular when complete. The bow widens as it moves away from the head with a small circular boss at the waist. Below this the bow forms a triangular shape, hence the 'fantail' name of the type. The surface is uneven and shiny due to corrosion and wear.

An incomplete cast copper alloy strip bow brooch of the Langton Down variant, dating to the first century AD. These brooches are native British, being copies of continental imports that came to Britain before the Roman conquest in AD 43. They continued to be produced until about 20 years after the invasion, c.AD 65, and therefore date from the end of the Iron Age into the very early Roman period. The brooch has a tapering bow with the median grooves running to half way down the bow, where the design is terminated by a horizontal line. The hinge is curved under from the expanded head…

A cast copper alloy pipe tamper. The upper terminal of the pipe tamper is circular in plan and flat in profile. Integral to the lower edge of the circular disc is a moulded, circular sectioned stem. The diameter of the terminal which tamps the tobacco is 7.12mm. The condition of the metalwork is poor with traces of a mid green/grey patina. The pipe tamper measures 59.19mm long and 16.92mm wide, weighing 9.4g. The pipe tamper dates to the early Post Medieval period. The small diameter of the stem terminal which is used to tamp the tobacco in the pipe suggests a 17th century date.

A cast lead handle from a post-medieval tobacco box. Cast from a two-piece mould which has split vertically down the central axis of the face. The two halves of the face do not join up properly and the spare lead has not been trimmed. The head appears to show a black African man looking upwards slightly and perhaps wearing a hat, suggested by a thick band running around the head and little suggestion of hair. Tobacco boxes with this type of handle were relatively common in the 19th century.

A cast copper alloy pyramidal mount with a circular rivet hole at the apex. The mount is gilded but otherwise is plain in decoration. The mount is hollow and does not have a bar on the underside, suggesting this is not a sword pyramid. Mounts of a similar style are known in lead alloy and date from the high medieval period. For comparisons, see records HAMP-BCF512 and BERK-38B976. This mount may have been from a small piece of furniture such as a casket. The mount measures 16.32mm long, 15.46mm wide and has a height of 6.25mm. It weighs 1.8gms and dates from c. 1250-1450.

Large fragment from an Iron Cauldron of later medieval – early modern date (1350-1850). These vessels are very practical and therefore their design remained constant for a long time.

Approximately 1/8 of the vessel survives; it has a wide everted angular rim which extends into the body of the vessel. The body tapers and swells presumably to form a wide mid-point which tapers to a dished base. On one edge a small rod-like angular handle survives, this is attach…

Cast copper alloy finger ring with a central sunken oval bezel, designed to hold a glass or stone intaglio. Some white residue remains inside the sunken bezel, which suggests a paste was used to fix the stone or glass in place. The frame of the ring has been squashed slightly post depositionally. The bezel is 12mm wide, narrowing gradually to 3mm wide at the back of the frame. This style of ring is typical of 1st to 2nd Century AD Roman styles. The ring is pitted but in generally good condition.
