A copper alloy object, probably a late Iron Age to Roman cosmetic mortar, or pestle. The object is crescent-shaped, with upper edges that are worn to either side of a very shallow chanel on the upper surface. One terminal is flattened, whilst the other has a knop which is phallic in profile, but which opens out at the centre. One side of the knop is complete whilst the other is broken. One side of the mortar has tiny punched circles outlining the edges but excluding the knop. Whilst the object resembles a cosmetic mortar, it is very small, and the chanel along the upper surface may be…

A copper alloy Late Iron Age or Early Roman probable bridle fitting fragment. The object is curvilinear, and if held in one direction, appears to be zoomorphic in design, with two curved and drooping ears above two bulging, rounded eye sockets. Both 'ears' are incomplete due to old breaks. Part of the nose or muzzle is suggested by two outward curving semi-circles, both of which are worn, the one to the left more so than on the right. The eyes sockets are deep-set for c.4mm, with an inner circle of 3.2mm and outer of 5.9mm. They may once have contained enamel, but no trace remains. …

An Iron Age bow brooch fragment. It is the bow only, and is worn and corroded. The bow is hollowed at the back, giving a domed, oval shape. It tapers to both its terminals, which are incomplete due to old breaks. One of these is flat and is likely to have held the catchplate. The opposite end has a stepped profile, at right angles to the bow, and its broken tip suggests the beginning of the coil of the pin now missing. There is the possibility of bands of linear decoration on the bow surface, but this may be a trick of the corrosion. The fragment measures 29.79mm in surviving length, 1…
