A circular copper alloy mount or possible pendant ornament of possible Early Early-Medieval date (c.500-750), with an openwork triskele design at the centre, each arm supported by a narrow projection from the surround. At the cetre of the triskele is a small circular depression. The object measures 64mm in diameter and varies in thickness between 0.8mm and 1.2mm, being thickest at the centre and thinning towards the edges, which are slightly convex from the front and concave from the back. It weighs 20.6g. To the reverse there are no signs of attachment. Kevin Leahy and Helen Geak…

An incomplete cast copper alloy Medieval horse harness pendant. The triangular pedant is slightly curved and is thickened at one corner, which probably expanded into an attachment loop, though this is now missing. One of the other corners has broken off.

Early medieval gilded cast copper alloy brooch with remains of iron pin fastening on the reverse. Dating from the 8th century, the mount is in fair condition with some gilding, now rather flakey, still present in the crevices of the chip-carved decoration. While the brooch appears to be lozenge-shaped this is likely to be a result of damage to its edges and it it probable that it was circular. A plain cross divides the decorated face into four equal fields, each containing a panel of deeply cut, non-zoomorphic interlace. In the centre is a circular, plain area, through which is an iro…

Cast lead alloy (pewter?) disc brooch of later Anglo Saxon (probably 10th century) date. The brooch has been much plough damaged; it was discovered conjoined by a small strand of metal, but subsequently has been accidentally broken into two parts during recording. The brooch would have originally been circular, but it is now more oval or sub-rectangular. It is slightly domed in profile and is convex in cross-section. It measures 38.9mm length, 31.1mm width, is a maximum of 2.4mm thick, and weighs 14.14g. The front is decorated with a cast design which is much abraded. The overall desi…

A cast lead alloy nummular brooch. The flat circular brooch is quite worn and slightly misshapen. The brooch appears to imitate the reverse of an eleventh century coin. Around the outer edge are traces of a beaded border, which encloses a inscription. All that remains of the blundered inscription are the letters []N/D[]. In the centre is a short voided cross. The back of the brooch has two incomplete pierced lugs to secure the pin and a folded over catchplate. Although the pin is missing, a trace of iron corrosion around one of the lugs suggests that it once had an iron pin. The survi…
