Copper alloy unidentified object. A cast Y-shaped object with branched arms narrower than the trapezoid shank or stem whence they protrude, whose other end is probably broken. An identification as the rowel box of a spur was considered, and the gap between the arms may have been enlarged by wear, but there is no visible provision for attachment of the putative rowel. Abraded. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Medieval, 43-1500. Length: 29.8mm, Width: 15.9mm, Thickness: 7.6mm, Weight: 9.60gms

A copper alloy artefact; a loop from a fragmentary larger object, of uncertain date, AD 43 - 1700. It is possibly a fragment of a hook from a sword belt fitting of post-medieval date, about AD 1500 - 1700. It consists of a short length of D-sectioned copper alloy, curved at one end into a loop where it is closed by a projecting transverse ridge on the inside of the loop. The other end curves in the opposite direction to the loop, but most of the remaining portion of the artefact has broken away at this point and is now missing. The outer side of the loop has moulded decoration, consis…

An incomplete copper alloy object of uncertain function probably dating to the Roman period (c. AD 43-410). The object is sub-circular in plan, convex on one face and concave on what appears to be the inner face. One edge of the object has a curved and worn break. The opposite edge has a squared lip on the convex face and a crescent-shaped, flattened lip on the opposite side, suggesting it was once mounted on another flat object. There are no decorative elements apparent. The patina is mid-green thus tentatively dating the object to the Roman period. A similar style of object, though …

A copper alloy unidentified object of uncertain date. It is a crescent shaped plate of ovoid cross-section, but is rough and possibly unfinished or fire damaged. Projecting from the middle of the concave edge is a stem which is sub-D-shaped in cross-section. It is unclear whether the end is broken or not. The object is 40mm long, 30mm wide and 10mm thick. 26g. It has a pitted grey green patina. The shape is suggestive of Roman crescentic linch pin terminals, but also Post Medieval tap handles. It could also be a foot from a vessel. The damage to this object makes it difficult to date …

Unidentified iron object of unknown date, AD 43 - 1900. A rectangular piece of iron, broken at both ends, and rectangular (nearly square) in cross-section.

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…

A cast and worked copper alloy unidentified object, either Roman ( c. 43 - 400 AD) or post-medieval in date (AD 1500-1800). The point and tip of the eye are now missing. The cross section of the shaft at the point end is circular and that morphs into a square cross section at the eye end. There is then a grove, leading into the lower section of the remaining eye. The surface has a mottled light green patina and was located in a field with several Roman finds. This may be a large needle-type object, a toilet implement or possibly a hinged arm for an unidentified larger object.
