Described from photographs. Elaborate cast looped handle attachment for a vessel: a female bust in high relief with centre-parted hairstyle with grooves and / or ribs indicating the hair, and simple facial features consisting of oval eyes (possibly with pellets), raised nose, and a single groove forming the smiling mouth. A collar or ruff with a zig-zag line runs under the chin and meets the hair on either side. Above the head is a loop for the handle, and to either side a convex, pointed projection. Below the collar is a large flange formed from 9 foils separated by grooves. The f…

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Probably Roman, fragment of unidentified object: >1mm thick, probably cast plate, broken at both ends but with apparently original curving inner and outer edges. 12mm wide at both breaks, it widens towards the centre where there is round perforation (diammeter 6mm) and, on the outer edge, a sub-square, thickened lug. If the complete object was annular and had an opposing lug, it would have measured c.70mm, with an internal diameter of c.30mm.

Fragment of an unidentified copper alloy Roman object.

Fragment of gold sheet from an unidentified object. The sheet is folded forming a front and back-plate the edges of which are torn, except for the lower edge of the back-plate which appears neatly cut, and the straight folded edge. The front-plate is decorated with a row of stamped dots above a row of repoussé pellets parallel with the folded edge, the lower edge possibly torn along a third row of pellets or dots. Surviving dimensions 12 x 7mm. Weight 0.4g. Although ancient (over 300 years old) the decoration would be consistent with a Bronze Age, Roman or Early Medieval date, and…

Unidentified object. Copper alloy flat disc stamped on one face with 12 triangles in a circle, points facing inwards, around a very slightly raised circular moulding around a central rectangular hole. Plain on the reverse. There is a very small amount of possible decayed enamel on one triangle. The edges of the disc are certainly complete around most of the circumference but there are abraded patches which may be breaks. Diameter 20mm. Thickness 1.5mm. Weight 2.76g. Probably Roman, perhaps part of a brooch. See for example Hattatt, 2000, 351, fig.210, no.1062. Also similar to a button…

Incomplete copper alloy Roman object, perhaps an unusual button-and-loop fastener, handle, or unidentified object. Rectangular boss, flat on the reverse, with cusped or concave sides rising to form a central rectangular socket which is now partially filled by iron corrosion. The upper edges of the socket are broken. Projecting from the side and reverse of one short edge is a short, rounded projection, perhaps broken on the underside, which may represent the remains of the shank of a button-and-loop fastener. There are no apparent breaks or scars on any of the other edges, so this does…
