Object type: COIN
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete silver penny of Cnut. In Fine condition, although only c.50% survives. "Short Cross type" (1029 - 1036). The legend still present on the reverse reads [...]FPINE or [...]EPINE for both of which there are many options (for example, Aelfwine, Leofwine, Hunewine, wulfwine) Some of these names occur at several different mints and so further defining the mint and moneyer is not possible. (With thanks to Laura Burnett, FLO for Somerset, for comments. 28.05.15) Reference: North cf. 790

Early Medieval silver sceat dating to the period AD 710 to 740. Series X (type 31 Woden head / crested monster). Barrett type Ap (Metcalf 1993:279). Probably minted at Ribe, Denmark. North (1994: 65) no 116. Areas of copper alloy corrosion on both faces suggest it is debased silver. Analysis of a similar coin, although lighter and perhaps of less good design, in the Ashmolean collection found it had a silver content of 63% (Metcalf 1993: plate 16 no.208).

An incomplete and rather worn copper alloy gilt Late Early-Medieval asymmetrical mount in the English Urnes style (c.1000-1100).

An incomplete late early-medieval cast copper alloy buckle frame (c. 10th century).

The two heads that comprise an outer edge of the buckle frame flank the pin rest, with a simple frame in between the elements. However, the third head is connected to one of the outer decorative heads by means of a thicker bevelled frame segment w…
