County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Late Iron Age, struck or hammered, copper alloy - bronze unit of Eppillus of the Atrebates and Regni but who held territory in North Kent at this period as well as North Hampshire minting different coins in each County. Alternately, he could have moved into Canterbury after his brother Tincomarus had pushed him out of Silchester. Either way it is feasible that Tasciouvanos-King of the Catuvellauni (North Thames) may have helped Eppillus to take his own family to claim territory south of the Thames.

An incomplete, Post Medieval C16-17th, cast, copper alloy strap loop once with integral loop. Comparable with class F type 3 single recurving hooked clasp but once with a long blunt hook. The simple decorated front surface imply it was meant to be seen but there is no evidence on surviving dress. They were probably attached to breeches or doublets so perhaps the hook was clipped over leather or textile straps or a belt with a loop to attach a secondary object such as a key, purse, knife or chatelains. Both the suspension loop and the hook have broken away. There is a moulded relief rou…

A small, broken, mouth fragment of a Late Bronze Age, cast, copper alloy-bronze socketed axe head. Probable rounded subrectangular mouth with moulded double bands around the rim.

This inturn lead to a rise in the population levels. There appears to be some wear, otherwise an attractive green patina with a few light scratches and one small spot pale green corrosion where the surface has chipped away.
