Headplate, bow and seperate footplate fragment of a large early Saxon copper alloy cruciform brooch. Headplate has slightly concave sides and convex ends (one of which is broken back from its original edge) with an integral half-round moulded top-knob on centreline. The knob has a twin grooved collar where it meets the headplate, with a reel leading to a cleft quarter-sphere-shaped terminal end. The flat end of the knob adjacent to the reel and the area flanking the cleft are both decorated with twin grooves. On the reverse of the headplate and perpendicular to it, is a semicircular pi…

Corroded copper alloy late Saxon strap end. Sub-rectangular in form with two trapezoidal removals from the terminal end creating a castellated profile. The profiled end is slightly thickened to one side with the central trapezoidal projection moulded into a raised hexagonal form, perhaps representing a debased beasts head. In fact, there is a possibility that the base of the projection is a corroded break and it originally extended to more of a zoomorphic finial. The attachment end is bifurcated with single rivet holes and extant rivets, in each upper corner. The central body of the fr…

Extremely worn copper alloy fragment of a strap end, probably of the Anglo Scandinavian period. The bifurcated attachment end survives but the terminal end is missing from an old and worn break. From the half-round split-end the slender body tapers very slightly before forming a worn and stylised moulded zoomorphic head, from this point the body then flattens to form shoulders and rotates through 90 degrees. The short flattened section shows some evidence of openwork before the final break. Insufficient of the strap end remains to be definitive, but the extant diagnostic features sugge…

Copper alloy head-plate and bow fragment of an early Saxon brooch probably a small long or cruciform type. Only the central part of the head-plate is extant with the periphery broken and damaged. Original edges that do survive suggest the headplate had side and top extensions forming a cross. There is no decoration on the head-plate other than a raised square panel, from the lower edge of which springs a short stub of the shallow D-section bow. There is a perpendicular spring tab on the reverse of the headplate broken across the circular perforation. Circa 450-550 AD.

A complete early medieval gold terminal mount traditionally referred to as an 'aestel' (see Discussion). The mount is in the form of an animal's head, constructed from a sub-rectangular sheet of gold to which has been soldered a separate gold sheet back-plate, leaving a hollow void inside. At one end is a short, tubular socket which has been pierced through with a circular rivet-hole (now empty), torn open on the base-plate. The socket expands in width to form the roughly diamond-shaped animal head with a snubbed snout. It is slightly distorted by crush damage. The upper surface of th…
