Fragment of an Early Medieval copper brazed iron bell. The fragment comprises part of the crown and shoulder of the bell, and also part of the handle. The crown appears to have been oval in plan. An iron shank passes theough the crown near the shoulder and rises above to the break. The shoulder flares outwards. The item is corroded, but a small patch of copper alloy is visible which suggests that this bells was copper brazed. Indeed, although XRF analysis has not been undertaken on this example, the metal detectorist noted that the object gives a strong non-ferrous reading on his metal…

An iron clapper from a bell. The shank is hexagonal in section and terminates with a swollen terminal also of hexagonal section. The suspension loop at the top is formed by a simple loop with the terminal partially coiled back around the shank. The clapper measures 140mm in length. The width of the shank is circa 11mm. The 'ball' measures circa 21mm in diameter. This clapper, which is likely to have come from a large hand-bell, was found in association with several other bell fragments of probable middle Saxon date, for example LIN-E97BD1, LIN-E86CFC, LIN-D8FC8C, and LIN-4B37F8.

An incomplete early Anglo-Saxon iron shield boss. The boss has a relatively low, conical body. The finial of the apex is missing, but the rod of circular section on which it was held survives in part. The surviving height measures 8mm and the diameter measures 8mm (including corrosion). The cone is conical and has slightly convex sides in profile. The cone has an overhanging carination leading to a rather shallowly concave wall below. The flange is mostly damaged, but may have measured circa 21mm in width. A circular outline on one of the surviving portions of the flange suggest that …

An incomplete early Anglo-Saxon iron shield boss. The finial of the apex is missing, but part of the rod of circular section on which it was held survives.This measures circa 17mm in height, and circa 8mm in diameter (including corrosion). The cone is conical and has straight sides in profile. Only a small section of the perimeter of the cone survives, measuring 61mm from apex to perimeter; none of the wall or flange survive, which makes classification difficult. The overall profile does, however, suggest that is a relatively low boss, probably of Hines and Bayliss's Group SB1-a, whic…

Five fragments of an iron hand-bell, or perhaps several iron hand-bells. All pieces appear to be brazed with copper-alloy ((Bourke 1980; 1983). The two fragments represent both shoulders of the crown. The first is rectangular in plan, gently sloped, and with rounded sides. The face of the bell gently flares outwards. A large lump of iron corrosion is visible beneath the shoulder, and this extends 12mm above it vertically. This probably represents one end of the handle. The width of the crown is 17mm and the length is 25mm. Copper plating is visible on the exterior of the shoulder a…
