Late Saxon or early medieval object, possibly a bracelet or mount.

Surviving length 48mm. Maximum width 7mm. Maximum thickness 5mm. The surface is corroded.

Fragment of lead-alloy disc brooch. Broken across a domed centre and part of the flange around the edge, with an incomplete catch-plate on the reverse of the surviving part of the flange. The dome is decorated with two bisecting ribs forming a low relief cross. Almost all the original edge, pin and catch-plate are missing. Surviving length 20mm. Height (excluding pin-lug) 6mm. Original estimated diameter 28mm. Probably Late Saxon. Although no very close parallel has been found Late Saxon lead disc brooches are a well-known type. See for example SWYOR-939E21, LEIC-A2A4A2 and SF-120845.

Probable silver ingot. Rectangular-sectioned with irregular but unbroken terminals and multiple shallow transverse hammer marks on the long faces. Measuring 13 x 6 x 5mm. Weight 1.77g / 27.4 grains. The weight of 27.4 grains corresponds very closely with 1 avoirdupois dram (27.3grains) although this is probably a coincidence. The hammer marks may indicate a Late Saxon date.

Two Late Saxon pennies found 30m apart. Both are PAX type pennies of Harold II Godwinson dating to 1066 and both are, furthermore, struck from the same pair of dies. The moneyer is Godric of Thetford. It is inconceivable that two coins of this period struck from the same pair of dies could have come to be lost separately so closely together and we are surely dealing with part of a group of coins that went into the ground together. Such a group, of two silver coins or more and of more than 300 years age, qualifies as Treasure. The coins are rather flat-struck but have seen little ve…

Silver hooked tag of probable late Anglo-Saxon date. The plate is circular with two circular perforations at one end, for attachment to clothing by sewing.

The design has been engraved and followed by very fine pecking, created by repeatedly tapping, punching or rocking an engraving tool. The design is slightly worn in places.
