Iron bar fragment. A short fragment of probably cast iron, of trapezoid section, with a corroded point at one end, broken cleanly at the other. A thick [1mm] coat of black paint covered all except the ends, though now spalled in places.

An incomplete post-Medieval copper-alloy double-looped buckle (c. 1500-c. 1650). The pin is missing. The frame is moulded at the front, flat at the rear and both loops are similar in size and shape. Both outside edges have a rosette at the centre. The narrowed bar is triangular in cross-section, flat at the rear. At one end of the bar there is a small knop. There was probably a knop at the opposite end but it doesn't seem broken at this point. This buckle frame is partially corroded and drab green with some black lacquer on both faces.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete cast copper alloy double-loop or spectacle oval buckle frame which has a flat base and a convex profile with bevelled inner edges so that it is D-shaped in section. There is a moulded rosette knop on the outer edge of each loop. The strap bar is narrowed and flush with the rest of the frame with a lobed knop at either end. The pin is missing but there is a lump of iron oxide wrapped around the pin bar so it was made of iron. There are traces of black lacquer on the upper surface and the back of the frame suggesting it was lacquered all over originally. Whitehead (1996) illu…

Just over half of an abraded post-medieval black-coated copper alloy double-looped buckle frame, both loops oval, with a lobe at the ends of the bar and a crudely moulded rosette (now scarcely visible) in the centre of the edge(s).

Copper alloy unidentified object. A thick [0.9mm] sheet metal disc with what appears to be a double-ended sharply recurved hook or havette attached to it by a rivet of head diameter 3mm and length 2.7mm passing through the centre of both components. The edges of the disc appear to have been cut in a series of short straight clips, and a regular series of four vertical lines are scored across its surface. The entire object retains traces of a black coating. The clasp element may have served for attachment, but the significance of the plate and its combination with the clasp are uncertai…

Copper alloy disc. Possibly a coin flan, albeit altered by its subsequent treatment. Five holes of diameter c.2mm are drilled through the flan, with one set centrally and the other four symmetrically arranged around the outside. These operations may have conferred a slightly concavo-convex profile. A black deposit appears overall. This may have been a spinner or whirligig, a toy which would have thin ?horsehair cord passed through the holes: the strings would be tightened and the object thereby forced to rotate rapidly, producing a thrumming sound. The coin used may have been a halfpen…

Copper alloy ring fragment. Cast rounded-section ring, tapering from diameter 5.1mm to diameter 4.3mm, with traces of a black coating.
