Two iron nails which are likely to date to the Roman period. The nails are of Manning's (1985, 134) Type 2, the second most common type of Roman nail, although much rarer than Type 1s.

133 complete iron nails and 61 incomplete nails possibly dating to the Roman period. They are characterised by the length (more than 15mm) and their robust pyramidal or cone-shaped heads. The nails are of Manning's (1985, 134) Type 1B, the most common type of Roman nail, but unfortunately indistinguishable from those of later periods. 98 were straight, the remainder clenched.

A complete riveted iron handle, post-medieval or modern in date. It possesses a crescent-sectioned gripping surface, bent into a slightly omega-shaped loop, flattened at each end into leaf-shaped terminals, pierced for two nail holes each, which point downwards. Whilst a similar vessel mount comes from Dragonby (Manning and McDonald 1996, Fig. 11.38, 73), this object strongly resembles the handles of a tin bath, even down to its bent crescent-shaped sections and is therefore likely to be modern.
