Silver knife pommel, as kindly identified by the finder. A sub-rectangular sheet metal cap for the handle of a small knife, probably of scale tang construction. The top is slightly concave and bears a medial incised line flanked by converging diagonal strokes. The opposed broad sides each bear an incised border limiting an area occupied by triangular and curved figures with closely-spaced lines running across them, perhaps veined leaves; the other sides are plain. The execution compares with that appearing on iconographic finger rings of early post-medieval date. One broad side was par…

Lead seal matrix fragment, for a personal seal. Cast oval or vesica-shaped plate with an incised lentoid field depicting a crescent moon with a star of eight narrow points above it. The first part of the incise legend is lost to ragged tearing along one side of the matrix, only two letters remain distinguishable [----]SE/F hVGON(IS?), perhaps originally [The seal of ----SE, Son of Hugh]. The characters resemble those appearing on the Short Cross coinage of 1180-1247more than they do later scripts, so a date in the first half of the 13th century seems apt.

A complete cast copper-alloy composite knife end-cap dating to the late Medieval or early Post-Medieval period, c. 1400-1550. The knife cap is broadly cuboidal and hollow, with one edge that 'kicks' out to form a lenticular upper section. Formed of two pieces of sheet metal soldered together to form the sides and top (the latter being lenticular in plan), each face of the cap depicts the engraved design of a standing saint, now much abraded and worn. Its top is decorated as well by the same means, though the motif is unclear-comprised of oblique hachuring. Within the hollow internal po…
