Roman (mid first to mid second centuries) brooch: The bow of the copper alloy brooch remains, but the wings are missing. The bow is divided into two sections; the upper portion which is a third of the bow and the lower portion. The upper portion is decorated with two vertical rectangular cells and is filled with alternating blue enamel and with what now looks to be iron corroded panels. The upper terminal of the bow has abraded edges, but is not broken and would have potentially formed the reverse of the wings or bow head. This upper portion, in profile, is particularly curved, and thi…

A cast copper-alloyharness mount of medieval date, about AD 1200 - 1400. It is shield shaped and has an integral mounting stud, set slightly off centre, on the reverse.

An early-medieval copper-alloy strap-end, tentatively classified as Thomas's (2003, 4) Class A, Type 4 (with enamel). This would date the artefact to around the 9th century. The strap-end is of unusual form and construction, and therefore of note. It has curvilinear sides with their widest point around the centre of the main plate. It terminates in a devolved animal head decorated simply with a transverse ridge at the plate end. The plate is formed of conjoined cells of elongated scrolled C shape. There are two larger such cells that abut back-to-back at the terminal, above which two …

A complete copper alloy medieval harness pendant, dating to the period AD 1250-1400. The pendant is quatrefoil in shape, with angular projections and an intact suspension loop at the top.
