An incomplete, corroded and possibly burnt Early-Medieval (Anglo-Saxon) cast copper-alloy single loop buckle (c. 475-c. 600). The pin and part of the frame, including the bar, are missing.

On the upper face, at the centre of the outer edge, there is a recess where the pin tip rested. The frame is corroded and has active bronze disease. It has feint traces tinning and has iron staining at the o…

A cast copper artefact, probably a strap mount of Early Medieval date, about AD 800 - 1100. It is sub-triangular (almost bell-shaped) and has rounded corners. The sides and base are concave; at the apex there is a small shoulder on each side and the apex itself is rounded. There is decoration on the front face, possibly originally inlaid, that is now worn, but it is probably a degraded version of a zoomorphic motif. The reverse is plain and slightly concave. There are three rivet holes, one in each corner. They are about 1.7mm diameter. The artefact has a smooth, brown patina. It is 23…

A fragment of an Early-Medieval (Anglo-Saxon) silver-gilt great square-headed brooch (c. 410-650). Treasure case 2014 T811 (addenda to 2003 T208). This foot-plate fragment is part the inner foot-plate panel with a central concave-sided lozenge shaped cell.

A rim sherd, broken into two pieces (modern break) (AD 700-900). Plain everted rim or a large coarse-ware vessel of probable Anglian date.

Lead Bead. Cast flat-ended biconical or barrel shaped bead with a central moulded aperture of diameter 3.5-6mm. The aperture is too small to admit a spindle, but the form is comparable to that of toggles used as drawstring fasteners for a girdle, and sometimes confused with whorls in the archaeological literature (e.g. Smith 1912, 153 and Lethbridge 1931, 76, cited in Drinkall and Foreman 1998, page 294); and, albeit in different material, of Early Anglo-Saxon sword beads. The surface of the object is crazed, as if from destructive corrosion, and patinated overall. Suggested date: Earl…
