A coin has been recovered from the site of a previous find (2011T544). It is a silver half-crown of King Charles I, initial mark triangle, in production 1439-40, wt: 14.75 g. It therefore fits in well with the coins of the previous find, which were:
Elizabeth I (1558-1603)
1. Shilling martlet (1560-1) 5.78g
2. Sixpence coronet (1567-70) 1567 2.98g
Charles I (1625-49)
3. Half-crown anchor (1638-9) N2211 14.96g
4. Half-crown star (1640-1) N2211 14.65g
In my report of 2011 I suggested: 'This group may be the whole of a small group lost or deposited at this period, or else remnants or strays from a larger deposit recovered in the past, either by the original owner or subsequently someone else, or even be part of a larger group still concealed.' The new find seems to confirm that idea.
It is my opinion, therefore, that this coin was part of a group of silver coins deposited together in the early 1640s and therefore that it fulfils the criteria of Treasure, according to the terms of the Act.

It is an object which has at least 10 per cent by weight precious metal, and which is therefore at least 300 years old. It is therefore my opinion that it is Treasure under Section 1 (1) (a) of the Treasure Act 1996.

The matrix, which has a worn handle and suspension loop, is engraved with the head of a woman, facing forward, within a single beaded border. The head is framed by a wimple fitting closely round the face. This wimple bears incised zig-zag decoration. Small sprigs are engraved left and right of the head. The tapering hexagonal handle (with vestigial, rounded facets) has a single pieced pointed suspension loop, above a single transverse moulding.
The height of the matrix is 24.9mm; matrix oval 15 x 15.8mm; weight 8.9g.
The object has not undergone any cleaning or conservation.
To judge from its colour and weight and visual comparison with other silver matrices and brooches in the collections of the Department of Archaeology & Numismatics, the alloy is well in excess of 10% silver.
Summary and conclusions
Seals were owned and used by both men and women during the medieval period. This is a non-heraldic anonymous personal seal, that of a wealthy woman. The female head and fine headdress points to the seal being that of a lady of consequence and aspirations, though the absence of a legend to reinforce authority suggests that a non-noble family might be involved, and that it may not have been necessary to have had such a design engraved to order - it could have been purchased 'off the shelf'.
The style of the headdress shown was fashionable during the late fourteenth and early fifteenth century. Comparable styles of wimple are represented on the effigies such as that of Lleucu at St Peter's Church, Northop (dated 1382), and one of the most famous is that of Eva in Bangor cathedral (possibly Eva verch Gruffydd ap Tudur ap Madog ab Iarddur), dated about 1380 (Gresham 1968, nos 211, 212). Seals changed at the end of the thirteenth century, omitting the owner's name, becoming smaller (commonly 10-15mm in diameter), and motifs such as just the head of a man and woman, or crossed hands. Sometimes the heads appear in profile such as one of a woman on an engraved gem (British Museum seal-die no. 705; Harvey and McGuinness 1996, 15). Another example of a slightly earlier seal matrix with a head facing forward is that of Richard the chaplain, c. 1250, from East Orielton farm, Pembrokeshire (Williams 1998, W531). The form of the seal matrix also points to a late fourteenth- or early fifteenth- century date.

A complete silver finger-ring of Henig type XI. Sub-circular in profile with a hoop that expands gently towards the bezel. The band is broad and flat with a sub-rectangular section. Two grooves, slightly inset from each edge, run the circumference of the ring. The bezel is accentuated on each side by two impressed mouldings and the space between is roughly inscribed with a scratchy free hand. The inscription reads 'IOI'. The ring is in good condition with very little sign of wear.
The inscription is likely to be a variant of the more common 'TOT', which is known from several Romano-British finger rings and believed to refer to the Romano-Celtic deity Toutatis (Totatis). Rings inscribed in this way are particularly common in the East Midlands. It is possible that the horizontal lines at each end of the vertical axis seen in this case was intended so that 'TOT' would be read whichever way up it was held. A similar device is seen on another silver ring also from Leicestershire (PAS: LEIC-2B87D2).
Date: 2nd-3rd century AD

Only the bezel of the finger ring is present. It is oval in shape, with a cavity at the centre, intended to accommodate a gem, possibly a Classical intaglio. The border is engraved with a legend that reads: +IERVSALEM (Jersusalem).
The bezel is silver and dates from the 13th Century AD.
Dimensions: Height 17mm, width 15mm. The bezel was not weighed.

A cast copper-alloy object, function currently uncertain. The object is cylindrical in shape and hollow, with an integrally cast sub-circular suspension or attachment loop on the top (or bottom, depending on how the article was used). The aforementioned loop is fairly intricately cast, situated on a moulded rectangular plate. The cylinder tapers very gradually, from 12.49 mm at the widest end to 10.77 mm at the narrowest. From the widest end there are two projections, one broken and incomplete. The complete projection emerges from the same side as the loop. The incomplete projection is on the opposite side. The complete projection incorporates a rivet hole for attachment at the end, with a corroded iron rivet still intact. The object measures 45.4 mm in length, 12.49 mm wide, the metal is 1.54 mm thick and the object weighs 10.5g. It has a smooth green patina which is perhaps indicative of a late Iron Age or Roman date.
Update: this artefact is similar in style to a barrel padlock, such as ESS-DF58F5.

An incomplete Roman rotary key. Unusually, the iron shank and bit of the key survive and it is the copper-alloy handle which is incomplete. The shank is square in section and terminates in an elaborate bit at the locking end. The bit consists of an 'F' shaped projection at the top and a further 'F' shaped projection which emerges from a downard projecting stem at the end of the shaft and which then projects back towards the handle. This section of the bit has a projection at the bottom which is at a right angle to the rest of the bit, projecting towards the holder, when the key is held in plan with the bit end to the left.
The copper-alloy handle has a gap in the top which appears as though it may have been deliberate rather than a break, and probably facilitated the insertion of the shank into the handle - the gap then being squeezed together to allow the hollow handle to grip the shank. Ferrous corrosion has leached from the gap on to the body of the handle.
The moulded copper-alloy handle is oval in section and consists of two oval collars with a waisted section in between followed by a sub-rectangular collar with a further narrowed section. The three collars are decorated with incised lines. A broken openwork section emerges from the third sub-rectangular collar, with one rectangular projection at the top. It is likely that this end of the key originally terminated in a 'trilobate' handle, similar to that seen in another example of a Roman key recorded on this database as SOMDOR-9B8C55. Other similar keys recorded on the PAS database include: DENO-04A217, Roman key from Whitwell, Derbyshire; ESS-83F497, Roman key from Roxwell, Essex; ESS-E75563, Roman key from Canvey Island. These types of keys are thought to be of post-AD 150 in date.
The key measures 84.47 mm long, 38.75 mm wide at the bit, 15.53 mm wide at the remains of the handle, 13.81 mm thick at the handle, 7.4 mm thick at the shank, and it weighs 44 grams. The iron shank and bit suffer from ferrous corrosion whilst the remnants of the copper-alloy handle have a green patina.

A complete cast copper alloy quillon dagger guard of Medieval to Post-Medieval date. The guard is lozenge shaped in plan at the centre and hexagonally faceted, with short arms which are also hexagonally faceted and hexagonal in section and which flare towards their terminals. The central lozenge shaped section of the guard has a sub-oval perforation, through which the tang of the dagger blade would have passed. This measures approximately 8.5 mm across and 9 mm long. It is undecorated, although on either side of the base of the guard, to either side of the central perforation, there are sub-triangular grooves, presumably to allow the guard to to sit against the blade. The guard measures 57.05 mm in length, 13.8 mm in width at widest point (the central lozenge shaped area), 7.25 mm in thickness, and weighs 14.6 grams.
This quillon or dagger guard is of Medieval to Post-Medieval date, with parallels on the PAS database (see for example SF-683644, ESS-CF3053, DENO-B36372 or SF-7ECEA4) and from Medieval London (London Museum Medievgal Catalogue, 1967: pp. 40, figs. 6-7) suggesting a date range between the 14th and 17th centuries AD.

A fragment from a cast gilded copper-alloy disc brooch of Early Medieval, early Anglo-Saxon date, dating from circa AD 450 to 550. The remains of the brooch show that the front surface was decorated with a moulded 'running spirals' design. Some of the gilding has abraded away, exposing a black surface. Elsewhere patches of green copper corrosion are visible. On the reverse the remains of the broken hinge for the pin, or possibly the catchplate, are visible. The brooch fragment measures 23.64 mm long, 17.07 mm wide, 1.89 mm thick and weighs 2.2 grams.

A cast copper-alloy dress hook of probable post-medieval date and probably a fitting from a sword belt. The object has a forward projecting loop at one end. The other end is broken but the remains of a hook or loop project from a sub-rectangular plate located in the middle. Each side of this plate is slightly concaved. Traces of gilding survive on the front of this plate and on the tip of the remaining hook. No traces of gilding remain on the reverse. The green surface patina is much abraded and corroded and the object has a purple/brown colour where the surface patina is missing. The object measures 24.87 mm long, 15.62 mm wide, 1.95 mm thick and weighs 3.9 grams.
