Part of a Roman copper-alloy cart fitting. The hollow-cast piece takes the form of a three-dimensional representation of an eagle emerging from a calyx. The neck of the bird projects vertically upwards from between the two surviving petals, curving into the forward-facing head. Much of the front part of the neck has been lost in antiquity, but that which remains displays three rows of moulded feathers, the upper of which projects outwards on either side. The eyes are oval, have moulded lids and incuse pellet pupils. In the tip of its beak the bird holds a spherical object. A raised…

A cast gilded silver terminal in the shape of an animal's head. Extensive gilding survives across much of the surface. The beast's head is elongated and its snout curves downwards and back upwards underneath. Subtle moulding represents the end of the upper and lower jaws, from which protrudes a long tongue. This widens as it extends to touch the underside of the beast's head, closing the loop and forming a circular aperture 3.90mm in diameter. The creature's mouth is formed from a single incised line following the curve of the muzzle. The mouth itself is contained within an incised bo…

A cast copper-alloy socketed terminal of Roman date. The lower two thirds of the artefact comprise a hollow, circular-sectioned socket, the diameter of which gradually decreases towards the top. A moulded collar extends around the damaged basal opening, where there are the remnants of two opposing rivet holes. At the front of the object, just above the opening, is a probable piercing; on the inside, at the same point as this piercing, is what appears to be a circular rivet stop. It seems likely that, as with many of the parallels for this piece (see discussion below), a hooked atta…

An Anglo-Saxon zoomorphic terminal made of silver and partly gilded The terminal is hollow-cast, with a pyramidal socket of rectangular section which would perhaps originally have held a wooden rod. On the narrower sides are two 4mm-long tapering extensions, which could have accommodated ridges on the rod. These are also zoomorphic, and although worn, the shape of the muzzles, the eyes and upright ears can still be made out. A single large silver rivet with a rounded head is still in situ across the socket, running between the wider sides of the rectangle. The tapering end is in the s…
