An incomplete hook-piece from a cast copper-alloy sleeve clasp probably belonging to an unusual type of Hines form B12. Only around half of the hook-piece survives, with the rest of the object broken away in old damage. The clasp would originally have been broadly sub-rectangular in plan, with a small hooked element projecting from its front edge and the remnants of a thinned rear edge projecting from the back edge of the piece. Most of the upper surface of the clasp is taken up with the 'bar' of the clasp, a rectangular panel of relief decoration within a raised border; the decorati…

An incomplete and heavily worn Anglo-Saxon sleeve clasp probably of HInes B19, dating to the Early Medieval period, c. 500-550 AD. The fragment is broadly rectangular, with broken lower and back edges that have served to remove its lower third. The upper surface demonstrates a single broken circular sewing hole, below which a central transverse double row of punched annulets are visible before the object truncates abruptly in old damage. This double row meets a single straight longitudinal row of annulet stamps which runs down the (damaged) rear edge. A single transverse row of similar…

A copper alloy early Anglo-Saxon wrist clasp of HInes Form B16. It consists of a flat rectangular plate, with four projecting attachment lugs on one long edge (the rear edge), each lug approximately triangular in shape and perforated with circular holes. The central two are intact and complete, whilst the outer two are incomplete due to old breaks. The opposite long edge also has two perforations about halfway along, both incomplete, and set 8.5mm apart.; these are where a hook or catch would normally be. The two short edges taper slightly toward the rear. The upper surface of the …

Copper-alloy hook piece from a Hines form B20 wrist-clasp. It is rectangular, with a completely undecorated rectangular bar cast in one piece with a plate. The bar and plate are separated by a single incised line running longitudinally just behind the lugs, and two short lines almost parallel to this, top and bottom, closer to the bar. The plate consists of four lobes, probably all originally triangular, but that to one end is now worn and rounded. The top and bottom lugs are pierced with circular holes. There is a small hook on the reverse of the clasp, in the centre of the front ed…

One half of a copper-alloy sleeve/wrist clasp. The possible hook or catch element of this wirst clasp is now missing so it is no longer clear which half of it we have. This wrist clasp is of Hines Form B18 (1993, 59-62). It consists of a bar only, measuring 38.9mm in length and with a rear edge shaped with four cojoined rounded knobs. The bar measures 5.9mm in width alone and 13.9mm including the shaped rear edge. Inbetween the bases of each rounded knob, there are three circular lugs for sewing, each measuring 2.5mm in diameter. The front face of the bar is decorated with tra…

An incomplete catch-piece from a copper-alloy wrist-clasp of Hines's Form B20 (plate and bar cast in one piece). The catch-piece is rectangular and one end is missing. It measures 26.58mm in surviving length and 17.04mm in width. The rear edge of the plate is shaped with deep V-shaped grooves forming a row of rounded lobes; three survive out of a probable original four. The lobe at the surviving end is slightly more rounded, presumably due to wear, and there is a circular perforation through its centre, which would have acted as a sewing hole to attach the wrist-clasp to the garmen…

A complete silver sleeve or wrist clasp of Hines Class A, it measures 39.40mm by 18.36mm in size. Like all Class A wrist clasps this example consists of a lenght of wire, which is most commonly silver, which has its two ends rolled up towards each other in spirals. This example has four spirals on each side and the outer spiral has a diameter of 18.44mm. At the centre of the spirals standing alone there is a small loop, this is typical of a distinctive type which are found in England. A section is left inbetween the spirals from which, in this case, a hook element has been fashioned. …

A worn and incomplete hook-piece from an early Anglo-Saxon wrist-clasp of Hines’s Form B13. It now consists of a copper-alloy plate only, and is rectangular in shape, measuring 34.13mm in length and 12.41mm in width. The rear edge is now very worn, and therefore incomplete, as is the hook, which projects from the centre of the front of the plate, measuring 13.22mm by 3.1mm in size. Despite its wear the rear edge does not appear to have been shaped, and was probably originally straight, as it is now. There are two circular perforations, both incomplete due to wear, which are at ei…

An incomplete copper-alloy hook-piece from a wrist-clasp of Hines's Form B18b (bar and plate cast in one piece with knobs or discs along the rear edge). Roughly half of this hook-piece survives, with an old break; it is roughly rectangular and measures 23mm in length and 15mm in width. The hook-piece is bent and warped due to heat damage; this is important, as it implies that cremation was taking place on this probable cemetery site. The bar is decorated with evenly spaced transverse grooves, and the junction between the bar and the plate is marked by two longitudinal grooves. The rear…

An incomplete copper-alloy hook-piece from a wrist-clasp, of Hines's Form B12 (bar only, with perforated sewing lugs). The bar is rectangular; about one-third is missing due to an old break, and the surviving part measures 27mm in length and 14mm in width. The upper face of the bar is decorated with a raised square moulding at the end, then with transverse mouldings and grooves, and then with a raised rectangular moulding in the centre of the bar. Beyond this are more transverse grooves and mouldings before the bar is broken. The rear edge has two surviving projections. In the centre i…
