Copper alloy brooch fragment. Cast half-round knob from the top or side of a cruciform brooch. There is a basal or inner end groove and a deeper collar. The 'flat' back is actually concave as a result of casting in an open mould. The inner end is flat with a groove with a pit of diameter 1.5mm set in its base. Extensive traces of rust may derive from an iron pin holding components of a composite head together, probably passing into the small hole, or possibly from a corroded iron pin. The cruciform brooch usually appears in burial contexts as part of the Anglian 'national costume' deem…

Copper alloy probable strap fitting fragment. Cast sub-rectangular plate with a straight-sided lug at one end.

Copper alloy die stamp. Cast rectangular plate with rounded edges and with deeply incised detail on one flat side. A doubled groove forms the frame for angular interlaced figures of Salin Style 1.
