A sub rectangular, sandstone rock with ogham script inscribed down three of the four sides. The front and back sides are smooth. The rock is a dark grey colour. It measures 110 mm in length, 38 mm wide and 19 mm thick. It weighs 139 g. Katherine Forsyth (University of Glasgow) has confirmed that the markings are those of an ogham inscription. The script is that of an early style, most likely 5th to 6th Century but possibly as early as 4th Century. The script is similar to that on an ogham-inscribed knife handle from Weeting, in Norfolk.

A copper alloy pin, possibly from an Early Medieval (AD 400-600) penannular brooch of Fowler's Type F. The pin is made in one piece and at the front of the head end is a flattened oval in plan. In profile the head is 'C' shaped which is the point where the head would have attached to the brooch frame. Below the head end, the shaft becomes square in section, then it tapers to a rounded and narrowed tip. The pin does not appear to have any decoration. The surfaces have a well-developed dark green coloured patina. The pin is straight however the surface has been slightly abraded in pl…

County: Coventry

Description: An incomplete circular gold setting, originally with a domed cloisonné garnet setting. The circular backplate is framed by a thin (0.4mm) outer and thicker (1.1mm) inner beaded wire. The thicker wire is carefully made with narrow even beads, but the thin wire has more oblique beads and many Aquätorschnitte, no doubt reflecting the difficulty of manufacturing such extremely fine beaded wire. Part of the narrower wire has broken away and survives loose. The central cloisonné setting has an outer upright strip which in side view is slightly bent over to retain the garn…

Description: A small circular gold object, probably a pendant. The object has a backplate apparently made from a number of smaller pieces of gold, which is framed by a gold strip set on edge, 1.5mm wide, which runs around the edge to a butted join at the top. Within this is a two-ply twist of gold wires, c. 0.5mm in diameter, which forms an inner frame and also has a joint at the top. Here the twist meets three more two-ply twists which extend from the top edge of the disc vertically down into the middle. This appears to form a neck, as it ends in a raised animal head made from solder…

A complete sub-cylindrical decorated polychrome glass bead, with flattened ends (diameter: 9.1mm; thickness: 7.7mm; weight: 0.87g), dating to the Early Medieval period, probably 6th-8th century AD.
