  • Thumbnail image of SF-CBE814

Record ID: SF-CBE814
Object type: WINDOW
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An assemblage of 4 glass window fragments of Roman date. They have a combined total weight of 2.18g. 1) 1 fragment of rectangular pale green window glass of Roman date. The underside is rough, suggesting that it was cast. This fragment measures 14.26mm in length, 12.03mm in width, 1.81mm in thickness, 0.56g in weight. Cast window glass appeared around the middle of the first century. It was probably produced by pouring molten glass into trays resulting in relatively thick panes with a characteristic flat, rough underside, a glossy, slightly undulating upper surface, frequently with…

This is a bead of blue glass, ovoid in form, with the piercing in the longitudinal axis. The glass is clear and strongly translucent. It has a longitudinal seam,rather like a bean or pistachio nut, suggesting that it has been moulded in two halves. Around the broadest part of the oval is a zone defined by two parallel incised grooves, and between them are shown three incised (or, rather, impressed) saltire crosses on either side of the bead. This has been seen by Cath Mortimer, who considers it to be medieval rather than early-medieval in date, and by Birte Brugman, who similarly does …

Object type: BEAD
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk

A blue glass bead with a lozenge shaped cross-section, rectangular in plan. Measuring 5mm in length and 6mm in width, it is 3mm in thickness. This bead is mid-blue in colour with a central circular perforation measuring 1mm in diameter. Brite Brugmann has examined an image of this bead and confirmed that it is hand made, it is however, very difficult to date. As it was discovered in an area where Roman finds have been found it is perhaps most likely to be Roman in date.

1: A fragment of cast Roman pale blue/green window glass, roughly rectangular in shape, measuring 25mm by 19mm in size and 4mm in thickness. A complete corner survives with rounded edges and a tooling mark near the corner, so this glass was square or rectangular in shape when complete. One face is rough to the touch with tiny circular dimples on it, the other is smooth and more translucent. Small air bubbles can be seen within the glass. 2: A fragment of a Roman blue/green cast window glass, roughly rectangular in shape, measuring 49mm in length and 22mm in width and 4mm i…

Record ID: SF-3E23A6
Object type: BEAD
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete midnight blue opaque glass bead. This bead is circular in shape, measuring 12.8mm in diameter and 11.8mm in height. It has a central circular perforation, measuring 2.6mm in diameter. It is smooth but has tiny cracks and indentations on its surface, probably caused by wear over time. It was found in association with many other early Anglo-Saxon artefacts, most of which showed signs of burning. Although this bead does not appear to have been burnt it is still most likely to be early Anglo-Saxon in date and to have been deposited originally in an early Anglo-Saxon grave…

A probable glass bead. Roughly circular in shape, c. 9mm in diameter, this probable bead has been burnt and melted. It is a light turquoise in colour, but this colour is in many areas obscured by a light brown/cream/light blue deposit which is due to the burning. No central perforation can be seen through the bead, but it is possible that this is as it has disappeared due to the melting of the glass. It was discovered in association with many early Anglo-Saxon artefacts, most of which are also burnt. It is therefore likely to have originally have been deposited in an early Anglo…

Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
1: A glass rim fragment, most likely to be from a tubular unguent bottle or flask. Approximately half of the rim and a small fragment of the neck survives, the rest of this vessel is missing due to old breaks. The original diameter of the rim would have been c31mm and it is 7.99mm in width. The glass is blue/green in colour and tiny bubbles can be seen within it. The top face of the rim has been sheared and is flat, the neck would have been cylindrical. Tubular unguent bottles with rims in this form are a common find on mid 1st century sites in Britain, especially in Colchester (C…

A possible Roman glass bottle body fragment, although too little remains to be certain. This fragment is roughly rectangular in shape, measuring 27mm in length and 16mm in width, it is 6mm thick. It is a dark blue green in colour and air bubbles can be seen within the glass.

Object type: BEAD
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete glass bead, circular in shape and measuring 12mm in diameter and 7mm in thickness. There is a central circular perforation through this bead, which measures 3mm in diameter. The glass is an unusual orange colour and has circumferential ridges, created during the manufacturing process. It has a vertical crack down one side. Birte Brugmann has examined this bead and believes that due to its colour it cannot be early Anglo-Saxon in date. It is therefore likely to be later, but as no parallel can be found its exact date remains elusive.

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete early Anglo-Saxon polychrome glass bead. This bead is fairly large and is circular in shape, it measures 30mm in diameter, is 9.4mm thick and has a central circular perforation which measures 7mm in diameter. The glass is black in colour and has yellow glass inclusions. Around the centre of the edge of this bead there is faint circumferencial zig-zag trail. Dr. Birte Brugmann has examined this bead and believes as a circumferencial trail is present it is most likely to be late Roman or early Anglo-Saxon, dating to the 5th or 6th century (Brugmann personal comm. 9/2003). …
