A fragment of an unidentified silver object or probably early medieval date. The fragment is rectangular in shape and section. One end is broken, while the other ends in a rounded terminal. The front of the object is divided into two cells with a horizontal (as pictured) cell wall, the cells following the shape of the object. These are inlaid with a red material, possibly glass or garnet, cut flat. The back of the object is plain and flat with no evidence of any attachment device.

A slightly concave copper-alloy disc, octagonal in shape, measuring c26mm by c25.5mm in size. Holes of varying sizes but all roughly circular in shape have been pushed through the disc from the slightly concave face to the other slightly convex face. The holes seem to be smaller near to the edge of the disc and they seem to be larger in its centre, they appear to be arranged in straightish horizontal rows. The excess metal around the holes on the convex face has been hammered down. The method of construction of the holes is similar to that on medieval strainers and skimmers, and it …

An incomplete copper-alloy unidentified object. This object is cast, flat and roughly oval in shape, measuring 30.7mm in length and 22.2mm in width at its widest point. The probable top of this object has what appears to be an incomplete suspension loop, on the same plane as the rest of the object. Below this it flares into an oval shape with open work decoration consisting of four evenly spaced roughly triangular shaped perforations, which forms a cross shape in the middle of the object, this has a small circular perforation in the centre of each arm. Projecting from the edge of t…

A very unusual cast copper-alloy unidentified object, now bent in half, originally straight. It has a flat rectangular shaft, which would have measured about 47mm in length, if straight, it is 7.2mm in width. This shaft tapers towards its terminals. One terminal is complete and has a transverse ridge where it begins, the terminal is split into two slender arms, which each measures about 16.6mm in length and 2mm in width and taper to a point. Their tips are now bent towards each other and touch, however it is unclear if this is how they were originally, perhaps it is more likely tha…

Record ID: SF-E12D90
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified object made from copper alloy. It consists of a shield-shaped piece of copper-alloy sheet, with one edge straight and the other edges curving to a point. It is not flat, but slightly curved along the length of the straight edge. In the centre is a neat circular hole 4 mm in diameter. The front is decorated with radiating lines; although the object is corroded, these lines look as if they may have been made by rocking an engraving tool from side to side. This technique is characteristic of the late Anglo-Saxon period, and the metal used (now a rough light brown) is als…

An incomplete copper-alloy unidentified object. Roughly rectangular in shape measuring 31mm in length and 13mm in width. All of the edges of this object are incomplete due to old breaks, therefore its original shape and size are not known. The front face of the object is very slightly convex, it appears to have been decorated and the remains of two longditudinal ridges, with transverse ridges inbetween can be seen. The back face is slightly concave and undecorated, there is the remains of a rectangular shaped protrusion near to the centre of the back face, 5mm in length and 3mm in …

A complete copper alloy unidentified object. It is circular in shape with a diameter of 17mm and is 1mm thick. Both faces of this object are decorated with a boarder of crescent shaped indentations. No parallel could be found for this object although the style of its decoration suggests that it may be Anglo Saxon in date.

A complete lead unidentified object. Circular in plan with a diameter of 30mm and thickness of 6mm. The back face of this object is flat and the front face has what appears to be an impressed design in it. This design is circular and has a boarder of two interwoven cords surrounding a central circular-shaped slightly raised dome. It was originally thought that this object could be a mould of Anglo-Saxon date, due to the style of its impression. However, Dr. H. Geake has examined it and does not believe that this is the case. Therefore, although it may be Anglo-Saxon in date, the funct…

A copper-alloy incomplete unidentified object, it would have originally have been circular in shape but is now worn and measures 32mm by 27mm, it is flat and 2mm thick. Near to the edge of the mount there is a semi-circular perforation, suggesting that a hole was possibly bored here at a later time, so that the object could be suspended. The front face is very corroded and worn but some decoration survives. The design has been worked in bronze and consists of two back-to-back spirals, each with four strands surviving, the arms of these spirals meet where the spirals begin. Further lin…
