Description
A Medieval copper alloy single-looped buckle with surviving incomplete copper alloy sheet plate, probably dating to c. AD 1150-1350. The buckle frame is oval in plan, with a narrowed and slightly offset bar and with an elaborated outer edge, cast into three knops divided by transverse bands. The upper face of the frame is internally bevelled, whilst the reverse is flat. A simple rectangular copper alloy sheet plate is wrapped around the bar, incomplete and truncated in line with a circular perfration, now incomplete, and with a second circular perforation to accomodate a simple copper alloy wire pin, which survives in situ. The back of the buckle plate is lost.

Dimensions: length 19.3mm; length of buckle frame 12.9mm; width 16.1mm; width of plate 8.5mm; thickness 2.5mm; weight 1.84g.

Comparable buckles are published by Egan & Pritchard (2002: 76-77, nos. 312-314), excavated in London in contexts dating to c. 1150-1350.

Description
An incomplete miniature copper alloy plate brooch dating to the Roman period, AD 70-150.

The plate and attachment loop for the pin survive, but the pin itself is missing, as is a possible head loop whose presence is hinted at by a small spur of copper alloy that survives attached to the pin loop. There is a hint of a surviving foot plate on the reverse, but this is largely missing.

The plate is rectangular in cross section, with two flat sides, and takes the form of a curved trapezium, with a short top edge measuring 11.9mm and a longer bottom edge measuring 14.2mm. It is decorated with three horizontal grooves across the upper portion of the plate, and possible two horizontal lines each composed of four circular impressions across the lower part.

It is 23.5mm long and 14.7mm wide, 6.8mm thick and weighs 2.01g.

Description
A Medieval cast lead alloy pilgrim's ampulla, probably dating to c. AD 1350-1530. The hollow flask-shaped ampulla is of Spencer's type 2, with a simple rounded bowl with scallop-shell decoration (now very worn) on the obverse and with a rectangular neck projecting from the top. Suspension loops survive on both sides at the base of the neck, although one has been crushed inwards. The reverse is decorated with a central longitudinal ridge from which project a series of obliquely angled, parallel lines, converging towards the neck and extending to the edge of the bowl. Both faces of the ampulla are depressed, with a recent break on the reverse of the neck.

Length: 46.3mm; Width: 30.1mm; Thickness: 10.9mm; Weight: 44.17g

Description
A Post-Medieval copper alloy coin weight, probably dating to c. AD 1500-1700. Probably double-sided and on a square flan. One face is stamped with a depiction of a ship, with 4-stranded bough and with a quartered square at either end. The other face appears to have probably also been stamped, but is completely obscured by corrosion.

Dimensions: length 15.5mm; width 15.4mm; thickness 4.2mm; weight 5.89g.

Withers & Withers (2011: 25) publish simiar weights, both double-sided and uniface, suggesting they date to the 16th and 17th centuries, and were probably imported from the Low Countries and Germany.

Description
A post medieval cast lead alloy miniature vessel, dating to c. AD 1700-1750.

The vessel was originally open in profile, having a circular base with the vessel body flaring to a wider rim. It has been compressed and one side is now folded inwards, although the original base area remains relatively unaffected. The rim surface itself is decorated with a motif of repeated raised circles, which continue around the full circumference of the vessel. No other decoration survives, but a possible attachment point is visible on the flat side, where two circular impressions are visible. On one of these, the white corrosion that affects the entire object is not present, and a shiny original surface is retained.

The vessel is 45mm in diameter, and 14.7mm in height. The vessel sides are 3mm thick and it weighs 55.56g.
Possibly a toy vessel as described by Forsyth and Egan 2005 and referenced in IOW-0A578D, another example of a toy vessel. Alternatively this could be a decorative small dish or container for ornaments.

Description
An incomplete Iron Age La Tene I brooch, probably dating to c. 400-200 BC. The surviving brooch comprises of the bow and partial spring, with the foot, pin and part of the spring all missing.

At the head of the brooch is an integral spring coiled around a copper alloy axis bar, a fragment of which survives in situ. Two left coils of the spring survive, with the chord, any further coils and pin all missing. The head of the brooch survives to a width of 7.4mm, the coils being 8.2mm in diameter.

Below the head of the brooch the chord of the spring thickens pronouncedly into a highly arched bow, which (although slightly arbitrary) expands outwards at c. 120-130 degrees to 12 o'clock. The bow has a D-shaped cross section which continues to expand until the mid-point, where it reaches 8.6mm wide and 5.3mm thick. Below the mid point the bow then tapers to a relatively unabraded break just prior to the foot, sub-circular in cross section and 2.5mm wide and 2.7mm thick. Although largely unclear due to wear, the bow appears to have been decorated with a series of longitudinal incised lines, which converge at either end.

Overall the brooch is 31.1mm long and weighs 6.58g, the arch of the bow is 14.3mm high.

The relatively small size of the coils would suggest an attribution as a La Tene type 1B (Hull & Hawkes 1987: 95), although incomplete, a bow of similar proportions is illustrated by Hawkes & Hull (ibid: Plate 31), which is identified as a likely Type 1B in the absence of diagnostic features.

Class: La Tene 1B
