An incomplete cast copper-alloy Middle Anglo-Saxon Ansate brooch of Weetch's type XII.Aiii; 'Ansate brooches with tri-lobed leaf shaped terminals', the so-called 'Pommeroeul type' (Thorle's group XII A2), dating c. 800-950 AD. In plan the body of the brooch is rectangular in form, with four leaf-shaped motifs on each side of the bow and terminals to give a symmetrical scheme of decoration. Each of these 'leaves' is broadly crescentic in plan, with those on the terminals demonstrating a further decorative moulding which fills the gap inbetween them- thus creating a tri-lobed moulded mot…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy, gold leaf and garnet Early Anglo-Saxon zoomorphic shield mount of Dickinson and Harke's group C (figural appliques usually of gilt bronze in the shape of fish or other animals), dating c. 500-600 AD. In plan the mount would probably have taken the form of a fish or aquatic creature: the 'head' end is broken away, but the rest of the object is preserved intact. The main body of the object is oval in plan, with a raised elongated oval section at its midpoint (thus creating a 'tiered' efect) containing three recessed cells that appear to retain the residua…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy fragment originating from a strap end probably belonging to Thomas' type A4-5, dating to the Early Medieval period- c. 750-900 AD.
