Copper alloy unidentified object. An encrusted fragment of copper alloy with a shallow trough along one side and an irregular but essentially convex surface on the other. This might be a fragment from a cylindrical object, though if so, it has been dismantled with explosive force - a characteristic of exploded munition fragments or machine parts of the modern period, but rare before that time. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Modern, 43-1950. Length: 32.6mm, Width: 11.2mm, Thickness: 4.8mm, Weight: 8.18gms

Piece of lead alloy of unknown date. The piece is sub rectangular in shape with irregular surfaces and has a grey-brown patina all over. It measures 84.9 mm in length, 69.1 mm in width, 38.2 mm in thickness and weighs 1208 g. The object is probably a piece ready for processing and may suggest lead processing activity of unknown date on the site of the discovery. It was found in association with a large group of lead and copper alloy material of different ages, from the Roman up to Modern Age.

Fragment of a copper alloy object of possible Roman date. The object consists of a pointed drop-shaped element with a tip turned out at 30 degrees angle. The tip and the opposite side are now missing due to old breaks. Both the front and the reverse side are decorated: half of the face has three longitudinal grooves which leave three thin raised lines; the other half is concave on both sides. The object has a brown-green patina with traces of corrosion. It measures 25.8 mm in length, 15.4 mm in width, 4.8 mm in thickness and weighs 4.68 g. Without knowing what the object is, it is di…

Two copper alloy fragments, possibly from Roman objects. One weighs 4g is 2.7mm thick and 26.5mm long with moulded linear decoration and a smooth downturned edge. The second weighs 0.7g, is 0.9mm thick and 18.3mm long, with raised moulded ridges and border profile suggesting that it formed part of a flat, oval object. Possibly a fragment of a 2nd-3rd century Roman disc brooch, such as Hattatt (2000), p364, number 1213.

An incomplete copper-alloy object, probably Roman in date c. AD 43-410, possibly a pin or pennanular brooch. The object is incomplete having broken off part way down its length giving a remaining length of 79.91mm. The object is twisted and bent. The object is generally quite worn. The terminal of the object is D-shaped in section and has been decorated with three horizontal grooves, flanked by a thinner incised groove on each side. The grooves are only present on the curved side of the pin and not on the flattened back, although the pattern has been nearly worn away on the front edge…

Lead unidentified object fragment. One end of a cast rectangular box with a hole of diameter 4.3mm drilled through its base; it appears that a diminutive gutter runs towards this hole, so its provision may have been an original feature of the object. Fine casually executed cuts appear across the upstanding edges of the box, and there is a small dimple in its upper surface at its surviving end. The object is distorted towards the cut or broken end, probably by the episode which truncated it. Patinated. The casual finishing might suggest this to be a toy or miniature object, though if a…

An incomplete copper alloy unidentifed object of uncertain date, from the Roman to post-medieval periods (AD 43 - 1700). The object is D-shaped in cross-section with a flat reverse and convex front. It is in the form of an oval with an arm of narrowing width projecting from one of the long edges. To the reverse of the oval (12.9x9.8x3.2mm), and slightly off-centre, is a broken (old damge) pyramidal projection c.7mm long, 5.2mm wide and 4.2mm thick. The arm curves in an arc and narrows from 7.6x3.1mm to 3.7x2.5mm at an old break. The object measures 21.9mm in length, 12.9mm in max.width…

Lead object, possibly a pot mend. It is in the form of an oval plate with one flat face. The reverse of the object has a shield-shaped protrusion which is a little off-centre; a few mm in from (and following the line of) the perimeter are arranged 7 small round protrusions. The maximum dimensions are 34.7 by 30.0mm, and the thickness at the protrusions is 7.3mm, and the plate is generally c4.3mm thick. It weighs 33.4g. It has a well developed white patina, and could be of Roman or any post-Roman date - but it is thought that it is unlikely to be post-medieval due to the degree of patination.

Copper alloy unidentified object. A rectangular strip of thickness 0.7mm which has its square-cut ends folded neatly behind it, one overlapping the other. The sheet is plain here, but on the other side it exhibits a slightly concavo-convex swelling and has finely incised linear borders, suggesting this to be a display face.

An unidentified object of likely Roman date. The object is likely to be a scallop or leaf semi-circular shape with a raised border around the edge and down the center. There is also a "shoulder" piece that was the likely area to have connected to another part as it appears to be a worn down break edge. On either side of the raised center line, there are grooves that travel about 45 degrees towards the outer edge. The reverse is slightly concaved.

An incomplete, lead mount, weight or decorative item. The object is broadly lozenge shaped, with two opposing obtuse angles and two opposing acute angles, but with one of the acute angled points truncated. Two of the adjacent edges on either side of one of the obtuse angled points are bevelled and appear to be almost intact, while the two opposite edges are more rough and might be broken. Between the two bevelled edges there is an incomplete hole (6.9mm in diameter) near the obtuse angled point. This hole may have been used for attachment. Cutting into edge of the hole, and running alo…

Unidentified object, a flat lead artefact up to 7.5mm thick and in the form of an irregular pentagon in plan measuring up to 47.0mm in width and 37.3mm in height. Three of the edges are 30mm long, and the other two are 22mm. One face has decoration in the form of an incised circumferential line 7mm in from the edge. This is obscured along the bottom edge as the object appears to have been hammered and thinned along that edge, probably in antiquity, as it has a uniform thick white patination covering all faces. This may be a weight - but as it weighs 67.5g it would not appear to confor…

A fragment of a copper alloy object, probably Roman in date, AD.43-400. The object comprises a circular suspension loop below which is a square collar. This collar is quite thick and each of the four faces has two incised lines running horizontally. There is a square shank that emerges from the collar approx. 20mm long before terminating in a break. The shank is bent at this point suggesting some force involved in the break, however the break is now rounded and worn. The object has an even green patina. It is possible that this may be a form of knife handle. A similar object can be fou…

An cast copper-alloy fragment of uncertain date. The fragment consists of a flattened sub-globular terminal decorated each side with a shallow circular groove above a linear groove which gives the object a possible zoomorphic appearance. From the terminal extends a short tapering hooked shaft that is sub-oval in section which possesses a shallow central groove along both sides. The fragment measures 14mm in length, 9mm in width and 5mm thick. It weighs 1.35 grams.
