Copper-alloy seal matrix with socket, for producing cloth seals (alnage seals). The die itself is circular and 29mm in diameter. In side view, the matrix rises vertically from the die for about 3mm then begins to taper with a slightly concave curve to an open end 19-20mm in external diameter. The matrix is overall 14mm thick and weighs 39.0g. There are two small bumps on the outside, very close to the socket's edge, which are surrounded by iron staining and which may be the remains of iron nails fastening a wooden handle. These are not quite opposite each other; one is above the C in …

Incomplete copper alloy openwork object, possibly of Early Medieval date. The piece is flat with a circular centre from which radiate four arms in an equal armed cross shape. Each arm is joined to the adjacent two by double curved bars which start near the current ends of each arm. These bars are narrower than the arms, 2.0 rather than 3.6mm across. These double curved bars have the concave side of the curves closest to the centre and the outer edge is formed of two wide concave cusps flanking a small concave cusp at the centre where the curves meet.

A fragment of a copper-alloy mount of late early-medieval to medieval date. It has been broken at both ends; at one end having tapered to a narrow width, at the other through a perforation for a rivet that no longer survives. Just after the hole is a moulded animal head with gaping jaws, a curved length emerging from its mouth. On the head there are two raised triangular 'ears', a lozenge shaped 'head', two raised ridges for 'eyes' and a short 'snout'. The curved length is sub-triangular just beyond the mouth but develops a D-shaped in cross-section as it tapers and curves. The mount…

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Early Anglo-Saxon circular mount, probably from horse-harness. The mount is decorated with a single band of triple-strand interlace with no heads or other zoomorphic elements. There is an outer ridged border, probably consisting of three ridges, and an inner single ridge dividing the interlace from a domed boss in the centre. The reverse appears corroded (perhaps with iron adhering) and there is no visible means of attachment. The interlace suggests a very late 6th- or early 7th-century date; compare an example from Sutton Hoo Mound 17 (Carver 2005, fig. 112, no. 25ci).

An incomplete Early-Medieval (Anglo-Saxon) copper-alloy and gilded mount (700-800). This mount, when complete, was probably lozenge shaped.
