A cast copper alloy mount, dating to the early Roman period, in the form of the head, neck, and forequarters of a running boar. The mount is hollow-cast and depicts a boar semi-naturalistically. The boar has a large head, oval in cross-section and tapering to a flat oval snout. One nostril is visible in the form of a pellet on the snout, the second is missing due to the loss of patina. Either side of the snout is a moulded ridge, probably representing tusks. The eyes are worn and not visible and above are two ears. The right ear (when viewed facing the object) is wider, measuring 4mm …

An incomplete zoomorphic copper-alloy mount dating from the Roman to the medieval period, c. 70-1400. The dating is broad as exact parallels for this object have not so far been found. The mount is broadly anchor shaped in plan and is characterised by openwork decoration, with an oval aperture at the top and heart-shaped space in the middle. The two equal arms at the lower part of the object appear to be zoomorphic probably in the form of horse's heads. There are two projecting lugs to attach the object making it likely to be a mount. The length is 41mm, the width is 28mm and the weigh…

A cast copper alloy Roman figurine or mount in form of a duck (AD c.43-c.402), depicted as if on water. The body is eliptical with a pointed tail. Incised grooves mark the tail, neck and wings. The base is flat with a sigle integral rivit on the underside. Similar objects are recorded on this database, such as GLO-2DB925, SWYOR-EDAEB6, BERK-D903F2. Ducks and other water-birds perhaps belong to a Celtic water-cult which also appears to have had associations with the sun and healing. (Green. 1978, 24). The object is 27.4mm in length, with an overall width of 11.5mm. It weighs 8.78g

Incomplete Roman copper alloy bird shaped mount. The object is in the shape of a board, though which species is difficult to determine. It is likely to be a duck or some other waterfowl, as these were common in the Iron Age and Roman period. There are two projections at the base of the object which appear to have once formed a ring. This suggests it may have been a finger ring or ring fitting. Similar examples have been recorded on the PAS database, cf. LIN-3AEB83. Dimensions: height: 19.96 mm; length: 20.06 mm; width: 16.03 mm; weight: 10.55g.
