Record ID: NMS-35C242
Object type: WIRE
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A piece of gold wire made from four strands twisted. The wire was made from 4 smaller wires (diameter c. 2.4 mm) twisted together in a clockwise spiral giving an overall diameter for the twisted wire of 5 mm. The wire piece weighs 7.24g and is 20mm long (unstraightened). The fragment appears to have been cut from a larger piece of wire at one end, although the other end appears to be a break. Analysis shows these wires are made of over 80% gold.

Lead alloy whistle tapering from a broad mouthpiece to a D-shaped sound-hole beyond which it is of consistent diameter as far as the distal end. This is now open but would have been blocked by a stopper of some sort. Decoration around the mouthpiece consists of a band of fine tendril ornament. This is separated from a field of fine pellets by a low rib. The pellets extend to the distal edge of the sound hole. A casting seam extends the full length along both sides. Length 26mm. Mouthpiece 9.5 x 6mm externally. Other end 4.5 x 4mm. Perhaps 17th - 18th century.
