Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
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 …

Head and socket from a composite pin of middle to late Anglo-Saxon date, probably 9th century. The head is in the shape of a cube with the corners cut off to produce a faceted shape; all of the faces visible in the photograph (two lozengiform side faces, two upper triangular faces, and the just-visible lower triangular and upper lozengiform faces) appear to have engraved decoration. On other examples of this type the engraving is inlaid with niello. There is a substantial collar beneath the head, and then a slightly flaring circular-section socket with a circular hole passing right th…

Early Anglo-Saxon circular mount, probably from horse-harness. It is decorated with a single band of relief animal ornament around a central boss. Around the edge is a wide border, probably with stamped ornament, and a lower beaded rim. The reverse has no obvious means of attachment. Compare BUC-24D605, BERK-18B795 and BH-5D35E5; also a repoussé silver mount from Caenby, Lincs (Speake 1980, pl. 15k). Early 7th century.

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire

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).

The side knobs are no thicker than the headplate, and are now slightly corroded, but it appears that they were originally decorated with a broad transverse groove between a pair of narrower transverse grooves.

Copper-alloy spoon with white-metal coating. The oval bowl has all its edges broken, and surviving dimensions of 43 mm long and 30 mm wide. The handle is short and very chunky, with a pointed-oval cross-section. The white-metal coating extends over the smooth interior of the bowl, up the handle, and over the end of the handle to continue down the back, suggesting that the short handle is the result not of breakage but of deliberate manufacture. The handle meets the bowl at its back rather than its edge. The back of the spoon has relief decoration of a well modelled human fac…

Fragment of copper-alloy bracelet. One end is (oldish break) but the other retains a curled-back snake-head terminal. The body of the bracelet is very worn, but some decoration can just be seen – a groove running along either edge, with oblique nicks surviving in some places across the groove. Very close to the terminal, the oblique grooving seems to run right across the width of the bracelet, and it may be that the lines appear to be across the groove only because they are worn away from everywhere else. The bracelet drastically narrows at the surviving terminal, then turns back…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of copper-alloy bracelet terminal that has been converted into a finger-ring. The original bracelet was flat and 7 mm wide, and may have been decorated with small dots perhaps along either edge, although the presence of many small corrosion pits makes this uncertain. One end is cut straight across, and the other preserves the original snake-head terminal of the bracelet, which has a slight flattening around the edge but no other detail or decoration. The finger-ring is large, 20 x 22 mm internally. The bracelet is Roman, late third or fourth centuries AD, and it was probab…

Fragment of narrow copper-alloy bracelet. Although both ends are broken, the curve of the bracelet is still obvious. It is very worn and the decoration is unclear in places, but there appears to be a zone of narrow oblique grooves at either edge, pointing in different directions to give a chevron effect but with the centre unmarked. Then there is a zone of similar oblique grooves in the centre, this time not reaching the edges. In places the decoration appears to be worn away completely. Flat cross-section. Total uncurled length of fragment, 87 mm; width, 5 mm. Weight 3.85g. Rom…

County: Cambridgeshire

Fragment of narrow copper-alloy bracelet. Although both ends are broken, the curve of the bracelet is still obvious. It is decorated with continuous, slightly oblique, ribbing made up of quite broad grooves which reach right to the edges of the bracelet. The edges are not straight and parallel, but wiggle as if the more fragile edges of the grooves have become more worn than the more robust edges of the ridges. Flat cross-section. Quite corroded, with some parts of the surface missing. Maximum width 5 mm; uncurled length of fragment, 53 mm. Weight 2.12g. Roman, late third or fourth ce…
