Object type: BROOCH
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Incomplete copper-alloy brooch, of Rosette type (leontomorphe or lion bow sub-group). Upper part only, missing pin. The spring is enclosed in an undecorated cylindrical spring case, curved around the spring. The upper bow is a very stylised lion shape, terminating in two very angular 'paws', and with a rectangular rivet projecting behind which would have held the plate and lower bow. There are angled lines on the back of the head representing the mane. Width 19 mm, surviving length 19 mm. Similar to Hacheston no. 56, but this lacks the mane decoration. Similar to Hattatt no. 281.

A cast copper alloy fitting of uncertain form, function and date. The item is broadly circular in plan and plano-convex (D shaped) in cross section - it is broadly trumpet shaped. From the apex of the dome a single sub-circular bar extends, this is broken flush with the surface of the item. Around the external edge of the projection is an incised grove with small incised lines. The opposite side is flat and undecorated but distorted by movement in the ploughsoil. The item has a deep green coloured polished surface patina that covers all surfaces - including the broken projection - th…

Large and particularly beautiful La Téne I type brooch, complete except for pin and part of spring. Two (left) coils of the spring survive, originally wrapped around an iron axis bar which now only survives as corrosion. The presence of a separate axis bar hints that the brooch may originally have been of the 'mock-spring' type (see Hattatt 1987, no. 724) but as the head is incomplete this is uncertain. The use of iron is unusual. The bow arches upwards and swells to a section 5.5 mm wide by 3.5 mm thick. It is decorated with a broad longitudinal groove with small transverse nic…

Object type: BRIDLE BIT
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Suffolk

Incomplete three-link (also called 'double-jointed') bit, made of copper alloy and iron, in a very corroded and worn condition. The central element and one of the outer links survive, along with a small fragment of the other outer link. The complete outer link is 74 mm long, consists of an outer iron boss, then a transversely set loop which would have held a separate rein ring, then a double 'baluster' moulding, and lastly a ring which is linked to the central element. The iron boss survives surprisingly well. It is made from a washer 11 mm thick and 22 mm in diameter, with rounded…

Copper alloy brooch, probably a Birdlip related type? Missing spring, pin, damaged catchplate; otherwise in good condition. The upper bow is circular in section and expands into a small "trumpet" head the back of which is slightly concave and has a 1.7mm wire projecting from the middle which would have formed the spring and pin. There is an incised line around the edge of the trumpet, and on it two lightly incised hatched triangles. At the mid bow there is an oval double flange projecting forwards. Below this a thinner circular section bow runs into the catchplate, above which there i…

Copper-alloy pin from a bow brooch, with half or less (three coils) of its spring. They are made from circular-section wire (2 mm diameter) and the spring is apparently coiled around a corroded iron axis bar. Quite large (length 46 mm, diameter of spring 8-9 mm) which perhaps argues for a date early in the range.

Object type: ROTARY QUERN
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Fragment of rotary quern made from puddingstone. Plano-convex, less than a quarter survives with no trace of the central hole. Probably an upper stone, although there is also no trace of a hole in the outside for a turning stick, or of iron bands to hold a handle for turning. Rounded orange or occasionally orange/red inclusions. Original diameter approx. 320 mm, height 90 mm, too heavy to weigh with a conventional balance. The stone for these querns comes from Hertfordshire and the centre for their manufacture may have been the Verulamium area.

Just under half of a large bead made from translucent deep blue glass with a rather carelessly inlaid trail of twisted cable. The cable appears to have been made from white, dark blue and a slightly lighter blue, and is 3 mm wide. The surviving inlay makes one complete and half of a second swag, with the cable being stretched out and crumpled at the bottom of the complete swag. Original diameter c. 25 mm, diameter of perforation c. 4 mm. Twist-decorated beads are known from the late Iron Age/early Roman period and the early Anglo-Saxon period (7th century). There are good parallel…

Two body sherds of grass-tempered pottery, one rather abraded and the other less so. The abraded sherd varies in thickness from 8 to 12 mm and weighs 28.19g. The less abraded sherd is 10 mm thick and weighs 20.89g. Both have voids where organic temper has burnt out, and inclusions of flint and quartz. They may date to the Iron Age, or to the early Anglo-Saxon period (6th or 7th century AD). Without more diagnostic parts of the vessel(s) (e.g. rim, decorated parts) it is impossible to tell the difference!

Incomplete cast copper-alloy object, originally circular in section and 24 mm in diameter; 19 mm in surviving length. About half of the circumference is missing (old breaks). It is decorated on the external face with mouldings; from one end to the other, a convex moulding 2 mm wide, a convex moulding 4 mm wide, a concave moulding 4 mm wide, a convex moulding 2 mm wide and the remains of a broken convex moulding (old break). The object as it survives is thus asymmetric in its mouldings. It is also asymmetric in its other cross-section, tapering from 6 mm thick at one break to 3 mm th…

Knotenfibel, complete except for part of the catchplate, part of the spring and the pin. The name Knotenfibel has no good English equivalent; it refers to a Late Iron Age one-piece brooch with a moulding on the bow derived from the returned foot of a La Tene II brooch. This example has two coils surviving of a large spring; the diameter of the wire making up the coils is 2 mm and the coils themselves are 10 mm in external diameter. Other Knotenfibeln with complete springs (e.g. Elmswell, Suffolk, sf281/3599) have two coils to either side of the pin. The break in the spring is old. …
