Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper-alloy fragment originating from an Anglo-Scandinavian harness cheekpiece of Williams' type 2, dating c. 1000-1100. Around 30-40% of the object survives intact, the symmetrical opposing side of the object and integral attachment link (where the cheekpiece would have directly attached to the bridle) are both missing in old breaks. It is broadly triangular in plan, consisting a rather irregularly-shaped lower section (part of which is broken away) demonstrating around half of two sub-circular apertures which (along with the other cheekpiece on the opposing side o…

Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper alloy early medieval (Anglo-Saxon) finger ring or ear-ring. It is formed from a penannular piece of wire, circular in cross-section and tapering to a point at either end. One of the points is less sharp than the other and may be damaged. It has been slightly bent out of shape. A number of similar rings have been found during excavations, e.g. Elveden (West 1998, 26, no.24.7) and Thetford (Goodall 1984, 69, fig.110, nos.17-20) and and recorded with the PAS in Suffolk (e.g. SF-1114A6, SF-07FB63, SF-450B65 and SF-DE3E03). Some examples have the ends twisted together,…

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper alloy early medieval (early Anglo-Saxon) unfinished buckle frame. It is D-shaped with a straight, slightly recessed, strap bar and curved outer side. There are unfinished rough casting seams around the centre of the inner and outer edges. Given the slightly recessed position of the bar, the buckle probably belongs to Marzinzik's (2003) Typegroup I.5a, which she suggests was in use from the late 5th century into the first half of the 6th century and perhaps a little later (ibid., 232, fig.8). Length: 18.84mm, width: 9.05mm, thickness: 2.89mm, weight: 1.52g

A complete copper alloy early medieval (Anglo-Saxon) spiral finger ring. The ring is formed from a section of wire, D-shaped in cross-section, with overlapping pointed ends. It survives in fair condition. MacGregor and Bolick (1993 169) suggest a 5th to 6th century date range for this style of finger ring, which appears to be a development of earlier Roman styles.

A fragment of a gilded copper alloy unidentified object of early medieval (early Anglo-Saxon) date. The fragment is irregular in shape with worn breaks along all of its edges. The outer face has chip carved decoration consisting of a spiral, expanding at its outer end into two strands with a straight line joining this at right-angles to a two stranded line at the other side - possibly a limb and tail of a Style 1 animal. The outer face is gilded. The object could be part of a sleeve clasp, brooch or mount. The style of decoration suggests an early Anglo-Saxon date range. Length:…

A fragment of a copper alloy early medieval (early Anglo-Saxon) annular brooch. Just under 1/4 of the original brooch survives. The hoop is 6.49mm wide and flattened. Its outer face is decorated with a row of small incised crescent-shapes running along the centre. One end terminates in an abrupt break and the other is more rounded, suggesting that it may be one side of a pin constriction Annular brooches appear in female graves, often in pairs, from the late 5th to 7th century, but the form with the slot is found primarily in contexts dating to c.AD 480-500, becoming less common in…

An incomplete copper alloy unidentified object of probable early medieval to medieval date. It is long and narrow with a break at both ends, a flattened reverse face and convex outer face. The main body of the object is 16.87mm long, its outer face swelling towards the inner end creating a slight S-shape in profile. Extending from the inner end is a narrower section, its outer end curving slightly towards the rear, suggesting that it was hooked originally. Its outer face is decorated with several fine transverse grooves at the join with the other section. The breaks are both quite fre…

An incomplete copper alloy early medieval (Anglo-Saxon) hooked tag. The attachment plate is circular in shape, becoming slightly elongated at its lower end, which terminates in a worn break where a hook would have extended originally. The outer face of the plate is decorated with at least two concentric circular grooves (partially obscured by corrosion) and there are small circular holes through its centre and two through the upper end. The surface of the metal is heavily corroded. Read (2008, 15, no.63) illustrates a similar example, which he places within his early medieval Class…

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper alloy and silver mount of probable (early Anglo-Saxon) early medieval date. The mount is composed of an irregularly shaped flattened section of copper alloy with a separate circular silver disc applied to its outer face. Extending from the centre of the reverse of the copper alloy section is a short, circular cross-section attachment rivet. The copper alloy components are heavily corroded, while the silver disc survives in better condition. Given its associations the mount is likely to be of Anglo-Saxon date and may possibly be from a shield. The irregular shape o…

A complete copper alloy possible early medieval (early Anglo-Saxon) shield stud. It is flattened disc-shaped with a faceted integral rivet extending from the centre of the reverse. The outer face of the disc is covered with a white metal coating. The surface of the metal is slightly corroded. Dickinson and Harke (1992, 28, fig.18, no.a1) illustrate a very similar tinned copper alloy stud from Berinsfield grave 24 (Dickinson and Harke 1992, 28, fig.18a 1). They cite only limited dating evidence for non-figural gilt or silvered shield mounts, but a late 6th to 7th century range seems…

Object type: HOOKED TAG
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete probably early medieval (Anglo-Saxon) hooked tag. It has a roughly triangular plate with a triangular hole through the middle, slightly off-centre. The plate narrows to a damaged point at its lower end. Although unusually simple in form and lacking the typical pair of attachment holes, its form suggests that it may be a hooked tag of early medieval date. Read (2008, 14, no.53) illustrates a similar example with a single circular hole through the centre. See also similar examples recorded with the PAS from nearby (SF-25096A and SF-9373E8) and from Lincolnshire (LIN-8ED…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete lead probable model for an early medieval (early Anglo-Saxon) buckle. Only the curved outer edge now survives, while the apparently straight and narrowed strap bar is missing. One face of the surviving section is convex and the inner edge of the other face convex. Both have faceted edges. The surface of the metal is pitted and corroded. Manufacture of a buckle in lead is extremely unusual and impractical and no others of this date have been recorded with the PAS (apart perhaps from NLM-A21445). Instead the object may have functioned as a manufacturing model - see para…

An incomplete copper alloy early medieval (late Anglo-Saxon) zoomorphic strap end. It is tongue-shaped with slightly outwards curving sides and pointed zoomorphic lower terminal. The upper end is split into two halves to hold a strap and the outer edge of each half has two inwards curving indentations in a 'W' arrangement. The outer face is decorated with a central trapezoidal recess originally holding a niello and silver wire inlay. Only small parts of the silver inlay are now visible, most of the niello is missing, and so the original pattern is unclear. Above this there is section …
