Cast copper alloy circular uniface coin weight for a gold angel, which was first issued in 1464. The weight depicts St Michael with a halo over his head spearing a dragon to the right of the figure on the obverse, and the reverse is plain. St Michael has his right leg bent and his left leg straight and this type was not produced before 1493 (Withers, 1995, 21). The weight weighs 4.15g which is equivalent to 64 grains which suggests that it was used for an angel that was minted between 1619 and 1642, which weighed 65 grains (Withers, 1995, 68), during the reigns of James I and Charles I.

Two fragments of Roman copper alloy bracelets, both D-sectioned and bent into rough ring. The smaller example, broken at one end and narrowing to a plain terminal at the other, is quite neat and may have been reused as a finger ring (internal diameter 12 - 14mm, width 2.2 - 3.3mm, 1.1 - 1.8mm). Similar reuse of the larger (internal diameter c.20mm) is less convincing. There is a gap of 5mm between the ends and it is by no means circular. Its width varies from 3.5 - 3.7mm and next to its wider end there are triplets of oblique grooves on both edges. Thickness 1.1 - 2mm. 3rd - 4th century.

Lead offcut. Sub-triangular fragment of cast lead sheet which has been pared on both its sides, producing a sharp point at one end. The other end is roughened on one side. Lightly patinated overall. This object is made from lead sheet of c.5mm thickness, a gauge which would be apt to structural use. Despite appearances, the material is unsuitably soft to perform the function of a piercing point or blade, and there is no indication that this was ever attempted. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1800. Length: 45.6mm, Width: 21.8mm, Thickness: 5mm, Weight: 18.26gms.

A Post medieval lead alloy powder measure cap dating from the 17th century. It consists of a small cup shaped vessel with a circular base and straight sides, now somewhat distorted.

A complete copper alloy buckle of Early-Medieval date. The buckle is D-shaped with an ovate section and an expanded outer edge which tapers to a narrowed and off-set strap bar. The outer face of the buckle frame is decorated with a series of grooves, the centre most of which is deep and serves as a rest for the pin.

Probably Roman lead steelyard weight with remains of an embedded iron suspension, pear-shaped with a collar at the top. The surface carries many V-sectioned gashes, none recent, along with an area of recent damage. Diameter 51mm. Height 56mm. Weight 663g. The proximity of this to 2 Roman pounds (libra), c.650g, is probably coincidental, because there is no need for a steelyard weight to conform to an exact unit.
