One end has the remains of a probable circular perforation (original diameter can not be determined), and is relatively flat. The artefact then increases in thickness in the central section, with a raised area made out of three ridges. The other end is undecorated. The lower surface has the remains of a central groove, running the le…

A total of 91 items were recorded of which 86 are early Medieval and, with three possible exceptions, probably relate to the hoard. The finds recorded consist of 38.85g of gold and 100.90g of silver, including the 79.13g cheek piece, 5004 . It must be recognised that these figures include both earth and garnets and will be reduced by cleaning and that the descriptions of the metal alloys are based only on visual examination, not analysis. The finds include a block of earth which appears to contain gold, 5091. The preliminary x radiographs suggest that this contains a single, folded, s…
