Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two refitting lengths of sheet copper alloy, possibly part of a binding strip, of probable Early Saxon date (c. AD 500 - 600). Each fragment is slightly curved and terminates in a break at either end. The strips refit at one end, but not at the other, therefore it is not possible to determine the approximate circumference of the original object.

Grey-green stone possible muller. A rounded possibly water-rolled pebble with a dull and speckled surface appearance, possibly with worn and in one case slightly concave faces, well-adapted to hold in the hand. This object was recovered as distinctively different from the local stones, and as such is probably a manuport [i.e. brought to the site by human agency]. Such stones might be retrieved as glacial erratics, and lent themselves to uses as rubbers, grinders and burnishers. They are noted particularly from contexts between the Iron Age and the Early Medieval period, though as a fie…
