Fragment of a copper-alloy artefact, possibly part of a Roman brooch. The item is flat and rectangular, with a short perpendicular tab at one end.

Copper alloy unidentified object. The finder kindly suggests this to be an umbonate plate brooch. However, there is neither fastening gear nor traces of its loss, while the form is smaller than, and also differs in other detail from, plate brooches of this appearance featured in Mackreth's 2011 corpus. The object is a cast circular concavo-convex plate with seven hemispherical knops equidistantly spaced around its edge, the display face retaining white metal plating overall. The possible stub of a fixing appears centrally in the hollow back. Possibly burnt, with damage more apparent on…

The other side features some slightly raised linear mouldings arranged in an indistinctive pattern, and two shallow narrow linear gouches to once side of the flan that extend from one edge to nearly meet the edge opposite. The object is otherwise flat and plain, with a patchy dark patina across its…

A copper alloy object in the form of an acorn, of uncertain date, but possibly Roman, AD 43 - 410. It is an elongated three dimensional acorn shape, of circular cross section. The solid object has a suspension loop projecting from the cup of the acorn, suggesting that the acorn hung upside down. The acorn has a rounded apex, unusually long and straight sided body (cylindrical) and a simple cup with a rounded base and no surface decoration. The suspension loop is rectangular in cross section and has damaged edges, making its original shape unknown. There is a small (1.8mm diameter) hole…

A composite lead/iron object of indeterminate date and use but, it does have the look of 'age'. Consisting of lead crudely moulded around an iron bar it probably dates to the Roman period but could be a lot later too; c. 100 - 1500 AD. The lead is cast into an irregular ball form, around the flat rectangular section of iron, which appears to curve away from the main body of the lead, perhaps to form a large loop, or fixing device. Dating and use is problematic, but it may be Roman, based on other local finds. As to use, it is possibly a lead mounting plug or clamp for an iron attachmen…

A fragment of a copper-alloy Roman to Medieval unidentified object, dating to AD 43-1450. It consists of a T-shaped socketed element, with old breaks on all the three arms. The longest and parallel arms end with a triangular extension; where these arms meet the central one there are two transverse raised lines. The object is riddled and very worn. No parallels have been found. It might have been part of a reinforcement/decoration of a metal vessel/other object rim, which might have been inserted in the socketed part of the object. Length: 34.77 mm Width: 14.77 mm Thickness: 8.53 mm

A copper alloy unideintified object of uncertain date, Roman to Post Medieval, AD 43 - 1700. It is a flat plate with almost all the edges broken. It is roughly D shaped in plan. The straight edge is complete in the middle, but broken at the ends,so this edge was either recessed or perhaps a hinge fitting or a slot perhaps for use as a catch. The curved edge has the broken remains of three large sub circular perforations in three projecting lobes with V shaped notches between them. The holes have diameters of about 5mm. They could have been used for attahment, but are too big to be rive…

An iron unidentified object of uncertain date, AD 43 - 1950. It is probably made of wrought iron as it has the appearance of grain, like wood does. It is a bar which is circular in section at one end, but which quickly flattens out to a thinner rectangular cross-section. At the other end, one side curves inwards producing a knife like shape with a flat back and a pointed tip. This object is not identified as a knife however, because the curved edge is as uniformally thick (about 3.5mm) as the straight back, so there is no cutting edge, though the whole object does taper towards the cur…

A copper-alloy fragment of a Roman to Medieval unidentified object, dating to AD 43-1500. It consists of a shaft with a collar near its centre which seems to have flattened on two opposite faces. On one side of the collar the shaft had a circular cross-section and is probably broken at the end. On the other side of the collar the shaft has a square cross-section, which turns into circular before the break at the end. The circular cross-sectioned part (4.27 mm long) bears two coils of a spiral groove. The spiral groove might have been screewed into some other support. No parallels hav…
