Small-long brooch, missing the terminal to the foot. The head consists of a central square plate, decorated with two vertical rows of crescentic stamps which continue the line of the bow edges upwards. The stamp used appears to be rather crude and the rows are irregular. The headplate is worn, and four stamps in each row can clearly be seen, although there are hints of others running right up to the edge of the square plate. On three sides of the square central plate are large flat mushroom-shaped knobs, with cut-out curves making the 'stems'. The total width of the headplate is 4…

Fragment of lead-alloy nummular brooch. Just a tiny scrap of the edge survives, with relief decoration consisting of a border of ladder pattern, an inner border of pellets, and an inner field of geometrically intersecting straight lines. On the reverse is a transverse pin lug. These brooches are so called because they are ultimately derived from coins; the borders are imitating the filigree settings that were added to coins to make the originals. The fragment measures 22 x 13 mm; the brooch would originally have been about 40 mm in diameter.

Fragment of a square headed brooch, triangular outline, chip-carved, gilt, worn. The image attached to this record is indeed of a triangular chip-carved object, but it is a gusset plate rather than a square-headed brooch. Gusset plates are also early Anglo-Saxon, 6th century AD, but are worn on the sleeve with a pair of wrist-clasps.

Part of the open-work outer shell of a double-shelled oval or 'tortoise' brooch. Made from gilded bronze, only one end survives, with an open-work boss which resembles an animal's head. This sits at the curved edge where the outer shell would have sat on the inner. From the top of the ?head runs a band of transverse ribbing interrupted in the centre by 3 longitudinal grooves. One side of this is broken but the other ends in an inward-curling spiral, above which is more transverse ribbing. Either side of this central band are narrower bands which radiate out from the boss. These 2 band…

Two gilded fragments considered by D. Forkes to be of a base silver alloy (see NCM Conservation Lab. report), & probably of the same brooch or mount. Both are in very delicate condition. The larger is now very roughly lozengiform, but little of the edge is original. It is decorated with three-strand interlace on each side of a straight median line. At one end of this line is a square motif, in the centre a roughly circular depression where no decorated surface survives, & at the other end part of a straight sided perforation. The other, smaller, fragment has two small arms, one carryin…

Almost complete small-long brooch. Rectangular head-plate with fifteen circular perforations along sides and top edge, bordered along the inside by a pair of closely spaced incised grooves. The perforations are slightly countersunk in front and are cast, although appearing to have been drilled. D-section bow with side facets between one fine transverse groove at top and two at base. Large lappets, each with three circular perforations similar to those on the head-plate. The foot, with scalloped edges, is in the form of a very abstracted stylised horse-head. On reverse an incomplete si…

The top of the hemisphere is decorated with four broad grooves radiating from the centre, each flanked by a pair of narrower grooves.

Fragment of AE terminal from the foot of a cruciform brooch. The break is quite fresh, and occurs part of the way down the nose of the horse-head terminal. At the break the nose is a hollow U-shape in section, with a very slight ridge down the centre. Each nostril is a pointed oval, set at a V-shaped angle, and between and below them is a drop-shaped boss. This lies in the centre of a semi-circular extension, which has part-circles punched along the lower straight edge and smaller circles punched along the curved edge. There also seem to be small circles punched on the extension …

Lead pseudo-coin brooch based on the Aethelred II last small cross type (minted 1009-1017). Circular and 26 mm in diameter, it is now bent around the edges. In the centre is a small relief cross made from four distinct wedges; around this is a plain relief circle, then the legend within an outer border of pellets. The legend reads + T M A O P P - - - N A O (the T may be a second cross; the P shapes are reversed; part of the legend is missing). The legend may be derived from + MA [NIE ON NOR] HA (Manna of Norwich, the moneyer) but it is too blundered to be certain. On the reverse is an…
