A copper-alloy miniature toy musket of post-Medieval date. The toy has been cast in one piece and has a 'fishtail' butt, faceted barrel (hollow), open pan and rectangular trigger guard. No trace of decoration can be seen on the corroded surfaces of the piece. Length: 70.3mm; width: 7.3mm; weight: 14.3g. Several similar toy muskets were found in excavations in London and were dated to the early 17th century, based on their distinctive design (Forsyth and Egan 2005: 89 - 97).

An incomplete cast lead alloy - pewter - toy cup dating to the early Post Medieval period, circa AD1600-1700. Approximately 60% of the cup survives, the rest is missing due to old breaks. The cup has also been flattened. None of the damage is new and was probably caused movement in the plough soil. The cup bowl sits on a circular, hollow stand. The original shape of the cup is uncertain due to damage, but the sides of the cup probably widened from the base of the rim of the cup. The surfaces of the cup are plain and undecorated. Soil still adheres to the surfaces of the cup cau…

A post medieval lead alloy toy plate dating to the 18th century. The plate is flat and octagonal in shape.

Surrounding the central image is a series of repeated florid designs. This consists of a lozenge with pellet at each tip and facing curvilinear designs with pellets at…
