County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Middle Bronze Age ceremonial dirk, the second recorded from Norfolk. The first was recovered from Oxborough in 1988 found point down in peaty deposits (Needham 1990; Collins 2013, 52). The landowner was said to have observed the second dirk being ploughed up, it then remained in the farm office for some years, occasionally being used to prop the door open. It was suggested that the object could be old and was then bought to Gressenhall for identification, causing more than a little surprise to the FLO and other staff of the finds department. Previous writers have indicated the d…

Description: A fragment of a Middle or Late Anglo-Saxon silver brooch. Originally cross-shaped, the fragment consists of the splayed or pelta-shaped terminal of one arm, with just over one coil of an incomplete integral spring projecting from the edge and coiling under the plate. The plate is broken along the straight edge of a further panel forming the arm of the cross or perhaps the centre of the brooch. The terminal probably originally joined the terminals of the neighbouring arms to form apertures in the internal angles of the cross, across which the plate is now broken. The te…

Two coins of William I, a penny of the 'Bonnet' type and a cut halfpenny of the same issue. They were found close together and, given the unlikelihood of finding two strays of these rare coins, they must surely represent part of a small hoard or, given the presence of the cut half, more probably a purse loss. The coins were minted circa 1068-70 and the date of their loss or deposition is unlikely to be very many years later. We may presume a date of loss in the 1070s.

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Palaeolithic flint handaxe. Measuring 210 x 115 x 37mm. This is a very large handaxe, probably one of the largest ever recorded from Norfolk. Although long and wide, the handaxe is relatively slim and has a profile that suggests that it may have been made on a flake. It is finished by large flake removals around the whole perimeter except at the point, where the flake scars are small. A recent chip shows that it is made from pale grey flint which is patinated and stained brown, heavily in some areas. The condition is lightly rolled and it is probably derived from a gravel deposit.

Lower Palaeolithic handaxe of type D (Wymer 1968, 1999.) Hard hammer struck from a suitable flat and slightly irregular nodule of mottled grey and black flint, now unpatinated; both faces have a patch of cortex extant, one appearing as a hollow where the flake removals did not succeed in being deep enough to level the concavity. All the edges and high points of the flake scars are heavily rolled. 143.5 x 80 x 37 mm. Weight: 432g. Found on beach. Recorded and sketched by the late Tony Gregory in 1975.

Medieval copper alloy swivel for the attachment of a leash consisting of two rings, both with moulded animal heads clasping a boss. One of these, slightly flatter at the rear, has an integral shank on which the other turns. The two elements still swivel freely. Zoomorphic terminals are quite typical: a recent survey of medieval swivels from Norfolk indicated that twenty-four out of thirty-four examples were so decorated. Such objects were probably used with hounds (Ashley 2006, 105, fig. 1 no.2). Length 46mm. Width 26mm. Internal diameter 16-16.5mm. 12th century.

Eighty sceattas of varying types; these small silver coins represent the earliest native English silver coinage and date from circa 675 to the middle of the eighth century. These were scattered over a small area, about 30m by 30m, and clearly represent a hoard or part of a hoard dispersed at some point in the past. The first 65 have already been published (A. B. Marsden in Yorkshire Numismatist 4, 2012) - nos. 66-70, found during 2012, represent an addendum to earlier batches. Nos. 71-5, found during November 2014, and no. 76, found in the summer of 2015, are further additions. Four m…

A possible hawking vervel. Flat sectioned ring inscribed W SPRYNG around one face and OF PAKENHAM around the other. The A and M of Pakenham are ligatured. Similar to an example from Emneth (2007 T305). Pakenham is in Suffolk. c. 17th century. Sir William Spring of Packenham (d. 1638) was knighted by Charles I in 1611 and served as Member of Parliament for Bury St. Edmunds in 1625.
