This is in turn surrounded by a collar which appears to contain foliate decoration and lettering, however, this is worn and indistinct. On the other side is a six petalled flower. The upper edge of the disc exhibits evidence of a relatively recent break, possibly indicating the position of a missing attachment tab or loop. A similar example with a lomb…

A Medieval gilded and decorated copper-alloy buckle plate. The plate is square with two projecting tabs to secure the missing frame. The lower part of the plate is also missing. The frame is decorated with a square pelletted border in which is an apparent pair of hares standing face to face and making contact with their paws. The heads of the two creatures are worn making their attribution as hares rather uncertain. They are not obviously 'boxing'. Both animals have long ears which curve backwards. They stand against a field of punched marks.

An incomplete copper-alloy spout from a late medieval ewer. The three-dimensional piece takes the form of a bird with tubular body. The form of the bird is broadly that of an elongated 'S', although the back of the upper neck has a flattened appearance. Damage has occurred at the tail end, by which the spout would originally have been attached to the vessel. The legs, which flank the base of the spout, are incomplete; interestingly, however, one of the lower legs, with a three-toed claw, was found slotted into the base of the broken spout, the claw thus resembling a foreshortened t…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An Early Medieval to Medieval copper alloy strap fitting, wedge-shaped in profile. The fitting includes a fragment of an oval loop terminal. From this loop the object expands to a raised boss on one side. On the opposite end is one side of a bifurcating grip, whose decoration is probably intended to be zoomorphic. This is not pierced for attachment so any attachment point must have been on the missing side. The lower side of the fitting is flat.

A gilded copper alloy disc. The disc appears to be cut down from a larger object and a Great Square-headed Brooch has been suggested (by Julian Watters). The remaining decoration is far from clear but is reminiscent of Salin Style 1, perhaps late Style 1 (Chris Fern pers. comm.). It is possible that what is left was intended to be used as a weight, but this is only a suggestion.
