Most of the finds are identifiable,however I’d be grateful for the top two
Top left is bronze and appears to have some age.
The top right appears to have a snake head end which is flat underneath.
Thanks for looking.

An interesting melange of finds there. I do like a nice silver thrupence.
The top two both have some age. I have a similar item to the left one. A leg off some kind of skillet or crucible maybe? I can't for the life of me remember what it was ID'd as. But it was similar to yours. The snake head thing could be part of a bracelet but it is hard to see without a picture just of that. Snake head stuff is often roman of course. They did seem to have a thing about snakes. :lol:

Top left item, if there's a dip in the larger flange side, could be a sprue from a casting? :?:

I have to say that was my first thought too :thumbsup:

It really would be worth adding a few more photos though - especially close ups of the snakes head and different angles of the other bronze item.
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
