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.

An incomplete copper-alloy object, probably a mount, of possible Roman date. It has a disc-shaped plate with prominent central dome shaped projection that is slightly concave on its back face. One side of the plate is incomplete due to old breaks. On the back face of the plate one side has a small and incomplete but integrally cast cylindrical lug or rivet of uncertain form. The entire object measures 24.12mm in diameter, 11.64mm in height, and 6.98g in weight. This is an incomplete mount or stud, perhaps for attachment to leather. It is of plausibly Roman date, although a later date …

Copper alloy mount. Cast plate with a conical hollow central boss of three curved steps around a convex centre, surrounded by a flat rim which bears three - probably the original complement - subsidiary plano-convex bosses or studs of diameter c.10mm. These were each attached with a pointed rivet of diameter 2mm and length c.8 mm which passed through the rim and was then hammered flat against its back so that the end of the rivet was at right angles to that part of its shank running through the rim. One example is lost, one broken, and one apparently doubled. Rust appears on the back, …

Copper alloy possible mount. Rectangular bar with matching ends of smaller and larger square forms, each bearing the low relief image of a bordered four petalled flower, in cells which appear apt to receive enamel although no colorant remains. There is a thinner mid section to the bar between these larger plates.. In profile the object is lightly bent from its mid point. Spots of rougher texture on the back of the square terminals suggest this object was brazed to another at these fixing points. Suggested date: possibly Roman, 43-410.

An incomplete copper alloy Roman anthropomorphic mount or eschutcheon, probably from a vessel. It takes the form of a hollow male bust. Corrosion has obscured the facial details, but part of a beard and a short hairstyle, with a band at the top - perhaps a coiffure or a laureate crown - can be seen. To the reverse, the upper back and shoulders of the bust are flattened and a short integral rivet remains in situ in the centre. To the left of this is a small hole, revealling the hollow interior of the object. There is also much corrosion to the lower section of the outer face. Where corr…

A copper-alloy mount, probably of Roman date. The mount is conical and filled with what appears to be iron corrosion. The top of the mount is circular in plan, and open.

Roman to Medieval (1st to 15th century) mount or strap fitting: The copper alloy mount is an elongated trapezoid with the narrowest terminal having a broken edge, possibly across a rivet hole. The opposite edge is slightly moulded with a notch at the edge. Towards this edge there is a small rivet hole. The outer face is decorated with four fine linear ribs, but due to abrasion and the loss of the original surface it is uncertain how the decoration continues. The reverse of the mount is undecorated. In profile the mount is slightly bent forming a convex surface on the outer face, and th…

A Roman copper-alloy mount (for example SUR-9A4B76), or possibly the head from a lock-bolt (for example, SUR-AED102). The mount has a concave circular head, from the centre of which projects a small dome. The shank below is narrowed to the waist, and then expands to the base, thus making it vase-shaped in section. A square apeture is located on the base.

A Roman copper-alloy mount. The mount takes the form of a sub-rectangular plate with outward bowing sides.

An incomplete copper alloy mount of probable Roman date. It is rectangular in shape with inwards curving sides - the longer sides curving much more strongly than the shorter ones. The outer face is decorated with a broad, raised, lunate ridge behind each of the long sides and a narrow groove behind each of the short sides.

A number of similarly shaped mounts have been recorded from several Limes forts (Jurgen Olds…
