Object type: BEAD
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete gold early medieval (Anglo-Saxon) biconical bead. Both conical sections are made from undecorated sheet metal and are joined by a narrow band of gold around the centre with an additional band around each end. The central band is encircled by two lines of very fine dots and the outer bands with single lines of dots. A tiny slit can be seen in the metal at the narrow end of each cone, which is presumably a result of the manufacturing process. It is not clear whether there is an additional tube running through the centre of the bead or if it is hollow.

A complete silver early medieval (Anglo-Saxon) mount in the form of a truncated pyramid. At the apex is a small, square recess that probably held a gemstone (presumably garnet) or glass inlay, but no trace of this remains.

The mount is hollow and has an integral, circular cross-sectioned cross-bar running across the centre. This bar curves outwards slightly, perhaps a consequence of w…

Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fine grained dense grey stone, possible rubber or whetstone. Flat-sided oval ended river-washed pebble; one end chipped. The surface is possibly smoothed by wear overall. The form is probably natural and the stone derived from glacial drift. This might have been used as an improvised polisher for organic materials, including textiles, or alternatively as a whetstone. The use of adventitiously recovered stones for such functions is especially characteristic of the Anglo-Saxon period, sandwiched as it is between eras characterised by more systematic exploitation and marketing of stones a…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy mount. Flat sub-triangular plate with a rounded lug at its apex with a drilled aperture of diameter 7.4mm. A countersunk hole of diameter 2.8mm and aperture diameter c.2mm is set towards each of the lower corners, and one retains a probably iron rivet of diameter c. 2.7mm and length c.3.2mm. Three broad diagonally incised lines pass across one side of the plate, clear of the rivets. The object probably functioned as an escutcheon to permit the suspension of a vessel. The use of iron rivets, if this material identification is sustained, allies this to work of the Early Medi…
