Below the later ridges the sides flare to four lobes in a square shape. These may represent eyes and eyebrows. Below the eyes, the width narrows and is bevelled at the front. The leg terminates with two lobes, one at each side. These may represent nostrils. The rear face is flat …

Copper alloy harness mount fragment. A cast semi-circular plate with the stubs of a probably rectangular loop projecting from its curving edge. The opposite edge is broken across a central member flanked by voids in an apparently openwork scheme; one strut remains to one side and its counterpart may be inferred on the other side. The curved edge of the plate bears an incised border to an interlaced anthropomorphic scheme which resembles the eyes and brows of a human mask. Each eye and brow is represented by paired and nested curls. Symetrical triangular arrangements of lines above the …

Gold pendant. A discoid plate of beaten gold sheet with a separate wire rim, and with the upstanding sheet metal wall of a central circular cell, now empty, of internal diameter 11.5mm.

The outer wire rim [of diameter 0.9mm] has parted from the sheet plate at one point, where its under-surface appears indented or billeted, and a similar appearance is also visible elsewhere when the two elements are distinguishable by …

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. A tiny fragment of round section, possibly part of a substantial pin shank - other possibilities might be considered, such as a stylus or aestel. An angled incised groove may well be part of a more extensive decorative scheme, perhaps of spiral form. Gilding remains on the curved surface. Worn and pointed at both ends, so the whole object is now no larger than a barley grain; fiercely abraded. The gilding is characteristic of Middle Saxon work.Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-800.

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. Cast curved strip with a tiny spherical terminal from which it expands in width, from 1.8mm by the terminal to 3.0mm at its wider broken end. The break falls on the position of an aperture of diameter c.2mm which must have weakened the object. On the concave surface a group of three transversely incised lines by the break precede a stamped figure resembling a star of six points with a reserved centre standing proud. Another set of lines - perhaps five - precede a further star-like figure. There are indications of the scheme continuing, though …

Silver possible vessel mount fragment. A curving fragment possibly from the rim of a vessel or a vessel mount of estimated rim diameter 70mm; this might be apt to decorate the mouth of a drinking horn.

Silver unidentified object fragment. Cast fragment from an openwork object in the form of a tendril with a pair of lightly veined heart-shaped leaves, broken at both ends. Low relief detail is carried onto either side of the object, making a function as a mount less likely than would otherwise be the case. An early medieval date should be considered, as the object comes from a group including quantities of dismantled Middle Saxon metalwork. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-850.

White metal possible vessel mount fragment. Cast object resembling a miniature spoon with a sharply bent stem, probably broken at its end. The material does not have the density to be expected of silver, nor the plasticity of lead; it might be a tin-rich alloy. The rectangular section 'stem' is bent sharply to 90 degrees, and bent again where it expands to form an oval plate of thickness 0.2mm with an external mid rib which resembles a miniature spoon bowl, being slightly hollowed behind. The display face of the oval plate, with the rib, retains slight traces suggesting it was formerly…
