A cast copper-alloy toy gun of the petronel type, dating to the 16th-17th centuries. The circular barrel is hollow with an integral stock supporting the barrel and extending behind the barrel at an angle.It is possible that wear at the back of the metal stock indicates a separate wooden stock has now been lost from the tow. There is a circular opening on the right side of the barrel where it joins the stock, presumably to actually fire the toy. A second hole can also be found on the right side of the gun below that of the barrel, near the bottom edge. This may have been used for th…

An incomplete lead anthropomorphic toy of late post-medieval date. The object represents a human figure with the head and arms having been lost to worn breaks. The figure is hollow although it seem to be filled with organic material from deposition. The figure is wearing what appears to be military uniform with a sword hanging at the left side of the waist but due to the degree of wear it is difficult to see any detail that would further identify the type of uniform. The feet are spread apart with the right leg slightly in front of the left and the feet are placed on a sub-rectangular…
