Object type: BEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A gold object, probably a bead, of possible Bronze Age date. It has been flattened due to post-depositional damage but otherwise appears intact. The object is rectangular in form and would originally have been tubular in form. It is decorated on its exterior surface be a series of 17 transverse incised grooves, seemingly incised individually and by hand with the result that they are slightly unevenly spaced and the ends of some of the grooves do not quite meet. There is some damage to the exterior surface in the form of small cracks and splits to the metalwork resultant from it being …

Record ID: SF-40DD14
Object type: BEAD
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Description: A complete gold bead, probably from a necklace. This bead is squat and biconical in shape, gently tapering to the ends of the large circular perforation. Dimensions: 7.85mm in diameter at its widest point, 5.76mm in length and 1.99g in weight. The perforation is 4.96mm in diameter. Discussion: Although no close parallel for this bead could be found, a case can be made for it being Anglo-Saxon and 7th-century in date. Silver and gold beads were in use at this time, and could be made in a variety of forms from sheet metal to coiled wire. Precious-metal beads are rare in o…

Record ID: SF-40CB01
Object type: BEAD
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete biconical gold bead from a 7th-century necklace. It is hollow, and made from a single length of coiled unbeaded gold wire with separate lengths of beaded wire wrapped around the terminals. A separate short length of beaded wire is also attached vertically to the centre of the front of the bead; this may originally have continued all around the centre of the bead. Biconical gold wire beads date to the second half of the 7th century (Geake 1997, 43). Other examples on the PAS database include one from Rowington, Warwickshire (PAS-2B1E44; 2002T95); one from North Down, Kent …

Record ID: SF4139
Object type: BEAD
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Gold and garnet fragment, possibly half of a rather long biconical bead. A hollow cone in shape, it has a circumferential band of cloisonne garnets around both the wider and the narrower end, and four longitudinal bands of cloisonne garnets running between. The band around the wider end had perhaps eight rectangular garnets originally, set in cloisons (cells); three survive now and two of the cloisons are badly crushed. A strip of gold projecting from the edge of this crushed area may be part of the attachment to the other half of the bead, or part of a suspension loop if the object …
