Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete probably Middle Saxon to Late Saxon copper alloy strap fitting or buckle plate, a D-sectioned bar with two iron rivets, one through an ovoid terminal and the other before a bifurcation.

Object type: LINCH PIN
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of the hoof-shaped terminal of a Late Iron Age to early Roman copper alloy linch pin, roughly circular and cast with a chord missing, and part of the ankle or shank. At the break across the shank a large air-hole has been exposed. A blob of metal adheres to the reverse near the edge. Parts of the surface and the fracture are blackened. These features suggest miscasting or the subsequent effect of heat. The front of the hoof is recessed and within the recess a circular setting, now empty, was probably once filled with enamel. A small sub-triangular area defined by the edge of …
