Circular cast copper alloy stud or mount, possibly dating from the Roman or the medieval period, that is c. AD43-1500.

The decoration consists of a simple moulded circle and groove and central boss on the obverse. Similar mounts or strap fitting have been recorded under NMS-D02D45 an…

Copper alloy bucket mount. Cast mount in the form of the head of a horned bovine. There is a round loop between the horns, a concave area matching the surface of the vessel whence this has become detached, and sharply everted pointed horns. The contours of the muzzle taper gently and naturalistically,depicting a breed with a fairly narrow head. There is a good patina on the part of the mount which would be in contact with the vessel, but the rest of the surface is more abraded, suggesting the mount and vessel may have been deposited together and parted thereafter, and that the upper pa…

An incomplete cast copper alloy box or harness stud decoration of possible Roman date. The mount is bell-shaped and bears many similarities to Roman 'bell-shaped studs'. It is conical and has a broken rounded shank extending from the recessed underside of the 'bell'. Although this is similar in form to many Roman box mounts, no exact parallel was identified and the patina suggests a much later, post-medieval date.
