Record ID: SWYOR-709171
Object type: BEAD
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a glass annular bead. Only about quarter of the bead survives. It is 15.3mm long, 7.2mm wide and 5.6mm thick. It is sub-circular in section and would have had a radius of about 9mm. The bead is made of dark blue glass and is decorated with five trailed then smoothed circumferential bands of white glass. There is also a pinkish substance on the side of the central hole. Beads with similar decoration on the database are LEIC-70C974 and LEIC-8B5E97. It is very difficult to date glass beads as they were used throughout the Iron Age, Roman and Early Medieval periods.

A glass bead of unknown date. The bead is spherical with a proportionally large central hole. It has a diameter of 7.9mm and is 7.3mm thick. It weighs 0.5g. The bead is made of clear light blue glass which is chipped and scratched. Beads of this style were used from the Iron Age until the medieval period and beyond and so are impossible to date.
