The paper presents an overview of metal and glass small finds found during the final season of the Yurta‑ ‑Stroyno Archaeological Project in 2016. The basic data of the collection are presented here, as well as a preliminary classification and interpretation of the selected finds. The most frequent metal from the site is iron – featuring mainly elements of construction and different types of fittings. During the final season, parts of iron knives, a saw and metal or wood working tools such as a punch or an awl were found. A rare find is a miniature bronze axe head shaped pendant. The majority of the glass finds are body fragments of free‑blown vessels. The best represented shapes are cups, beakers, wide bowls and flasks. The group of glass beads features two main types: hexagonal and flat round beads. Several new fragments of raw glass and glass production waste were found during the field survey to supplement the previous‑year’s findings.
