Faceted head and shaft socket from a composite pin, made in one piece from silver. The shaft is circular in cross-section (4-5 mm in diameter) and hollow, with a deep tapering split at the back and a pair of rivet holes (one on either side) for attachment to a separate shaft. There is no evidence for the material of the shaft, and it was probably organic, e.g. wood or ivory. The shaft tapers from a wider attachment end to a pair of ridged collars at the junction between the head and the shaft. The upper collar is larger than the lower. The head is roughly in the shape of a cube, a max…

The pinhead forms approximately 8.2mm of the pin's total surviving length, and measures 6mm x 5.8mm. It is polyhedral in form, comprising a cuboid with all corners removed to form triangular facets at the top of the cuboid, and sub-lozenge-shaped facets at the bottom. The four main faces are diamond shape, each one with a depressed dot in the centre perhaps for missing glass insets. W white substance visible within the dots may be the remains of adhesive material for securing these inlays. Below the pinhead is a single, sub-circular collar measuring approximately 2.6mm in diameter …

A fragmentary silver artefact, probably part of an early medieval pin. The object comprises the lower portion of the pinhead, the rest lost to a worn and irregular break. The surviving portion of the plate measures approximately 3.2mm to either side of the shaft, and has a curved edge suggesting that the pinhead was originally circular. The front of the pinhead is decorated with what appears to have been a concentric circular border. The outermost border is a segmented line, the segments of irregular length and some of irregular shape rather than being tiny rectangles. Inside this is …
