Wrought iron buckle. A large single looped buckle with long straight inner and outer edges and slightly bowed upper and lower edges, all of probably rounded section. An iron pin is wrapped around one long edge. The size and robust construction may point to a use with horse harness.

An incomplete iron arrowhead of medieval date. The arrowhead is socketed with a pointed tip and near-parallel sides to the break close to the end of the socket. The arrowhead does not appear to have been barbed and the style is similar to bodkin or 'bullet' arrowheads of the period c. AD 1200-1400. Often considered 'armour piercing' these weapons would only have been effective against armour at close range. Jessop, O. 1997. Medieval Arrowheads. Datasheet 22.
