Weight. Cast circular disc with notches. (No image available.) Weight 9.04g (other dimensions not recorded). (Report by Susan M. Youngs, formerly British Museum). This object is most similar to weight 11 from Gilton, Kent, Grave 66 (Scull 1990, fig. 2), one of the few weight-sets to have been found in grave. When found individually, such things can be impossible to identify reliably (Hinton 2000, 63-6 and 111-2); in this case, the notches enabled the identification to be made. At 9.04 g, the disc is within a reasonable tolerance of seven times a unit of 1.3 g, based on Merovingian go…

Cast copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount; Williams 1997, Type 7. Pear-shaped, with apex missing, but debased zoomorphic terminals beyond the base at either side. Three apertures along the upper edge (only half of the central one survives) and one in the centre at the bottom. Tree-like moulded central device. Very narrow right-angled flange with no trace of iron corrosion. This is an unusual example as it only has one, rather than the customary two basal holes, but three rather than one or two along the top, which is more common.

Copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount; Williams 1997 Class B. Openwork mount with two openwork windo-like shapes with a circular hole above at the centre. The upper edge is asymetrical with three groups of three trisngular mouldings with two D-shaped areas cut-out between the groups. There is a single centrally-placed iron rivet in the flange and there are traces of iron corrosion on the reverse surface around the circular hole at the top. This is very similar to an example from Peper Harrow, Surrey (Williams 2001, 319 no. 57). Cf, Williams (1997, 97; ref. 477)
