A medieval (1300-1400) copper alloy horse harness pendant in the form of a quatrefoil with a loop (turned through 90 degrees) extending from the centre of one of the curved edges.

Copper alloy stud. Cast concavo-convex cup-shaped object with a short stalk, resembling a truncated golf tee when viewed in profile. The shallow cup is filled with a thick layer of red enamel. Abraded. Such items would decorate larger items such as the mouths of sword scabbards or chariot or horse fittings; the use of a monochrome red enamel would admit a pre-Roman date. Suggested date: Late Iron Age, 100 BC-AD 100. Height: 10.5mm, Diameter: 10.6mm, Thickness (edge of cup): 2mm, Weight: 2.31gms

A cast copper alloy knife handle, trapezoidal in plan with straight edges and convex sides.

An incomplete medieval copper-alloy harness pendant (c. 1200-c. 1400). The object is cruciform, though only three of the arms survive; the one at the base broken at its junction with the centre. Each extant arm is similar and has a rounded, sub-triangular terminal, possibly intended as a lis, moulded in low relief, seemingly on both surfaces. Also on both surfaces is central, broadly lozengiform cell which appears to retain traces of decayed enamel. At the end of one arm, that with the most rounded terminal, a stub protrudes that would have presumably turned into the suspension loop…
