An incomplete, cast copper-alloy strap hook with integral loop dating to the early post-Medieval period. The object consists of a plate, sub-oval in plan, with a broken, circular loop at one end. Between this broken loop and the plate is a moulded, tranverse collar with a transverse groove dividing it into two equal sections. The opposite end of the plate is broken but would, originally, have had an integrally-moulded, blunt hook projecting from it. The hook is now missing. Read compares these to Class F, Type 3, single recurving, sharp-hooked clasps and dates them to the 17th century.

Copper alloy Metalworking Debris. Solidified copper alloy melt. This appears to indicate an episode of metalworking set at a distance from settlement, as might be apt for a potentially noxious process. Such activities might include professional craft activity such as bell founding, or the more informal recycling of copper alloy vessels. Both would be most likely in a medieval context. At an earlier date, such a substantial mass of usable metal would probably be formed into an ingot, while the accidental burning would be unlikely to reduce copper alloy to a fluid state.

Lead Alloy Toy Soldier. Hollow-cast figure of 54mm or 1:32 scale representing an officer of an infantry Regiment of the British Army in full dress uniform, manufactured by William Britains in accomplished naturalistic style in a marching pose. An integrally cast base, originally rectangular, is lightly torn and twisted. The head and a moveable sword arm are lost, and the figure is patinated overall. The rank is denoted by a sash, scabbard fittings and by medals. The trousers are tucked into the boots, a detail which suggests a date up to around the end of the First World War. Britains…

Lead Alloy possible Lids. Two hollow-cast objects, both in the form of a male head wearing a lightly ribbed peaked cap. There are very slight differences between the detail of the heads, as with the texture of hair, though the subject, scale and nature of the objects is identical and the execution naturalistic and accomplished. One figure retains a high collar with a complete lower edge, so is probably complete. The caps appear similar to those worn by modern jockeys, but the complete example also wears a stiff upright collar, vertically lined, with the lapels of a jacket represent…

Copper alloy Gilt Mount. Rectangular plate with a protruding tongue at one end, and with three rivets (one lost) of length c.3mm and diameter c.2mm passing through holes punched from the display face. The display face bears relict gilding. Though the size and form may relate this object to Early Medieval hooked tags, there is scant evidence that the tongue represents a hook. The three rivets, however, argue that secure attachment was paramount, and are the usual method of attachment for medieval mounts. The use of gilding admits a range of periods from the Middle Saxon onwards. Sugges…

Lead possible Weight. Cast conical object with an off-centre moulded aperture of 9.5mm diameter at its flat end to 8.5mm diameter at the rounded end. The mass could suggest this object to represent five Scandinavian units of 4.07gms, as used for the measurement of bullion. However, multiples of this module are more often of even numbers - two, four, or six units, and so on. With its flat broader end uppermost this object may equally have served as a spindle whorl of the same period, in which case it would have been suitable to spin a yarn. Other weights of this form are known from Med…

Copper alloy and Iron. Balance fragment. Central beam and one hinged arm from a tiny balance. The arm has a bulbous end, perhaps to permit tied attachment of a pan. A separate pin of diameter 1.5mm and length 3.8mm joins arm and beam. Ferrous corrosion at the centre of the beam suggests provision for the suspension of the set of scales. Dr Kevin Leahy kindly suggests this may be of Roman date, though no other material of that date was reported with it. Suggested date: Possibly Roman, 40-400.
