A cast lead-alloy boar figurine, probably a toy, dating from the post-Medieval period. The animal is of realistic, if somewhat flattened, appearance. As well as being heavily corroded in places, the legs are also incomplete and the animal may once have stood on a base. A groove extends longitudinally along the base and may suggest that this piece once fitted to another element. A globular, glass-like pellet is located within this groove, located between the boar's hindquarters. It is unclear as to whether this pellet had lodged within the groove after deposition or whether it was a…

A complete cast lead alloy toy axehead of Post-Medieval date. The axehead is trapezoidal in plan flaring out from a rectangular butt end to a wide splayed blade. Mid-way along the shaft is a tubular moulding by which the axe (if functional) would have been hafted.

The axehead is 23.9mm long, 20.4mm wide, 8mm thick and weighs 3.5g.

A sub-circular lead alloy whirligig or buzz disc, which has been cut from lead sheeting. The buzz disc is circular in plan and has a worn serrated edge. In the centre are two pinched off-centre holes, through which a looped string or cord would have been threaded. There is a large incisied X across or between the two holes on one side, while on the other another small X can be seen to the right of the holes. These may have been a form of identification of ownership as they are intentional and not the result of post-depositional damage. The spinning disc would have produced a whirring …
