Extremely worn copper alloy fragment of a strap end, probably of the Anglo Scandinavian period. The bifurcated attachment end survives but the terminal end is missing from an old and worn break. From the half-round split-end the slender body tapers very slightly before forming a worn and stylised moulded zoomorphic head, from this point the body then flattens to form shoulders and rotates through 90 degrees. The short flattened section shows some evidence of openwork before the final break. Insufficient of the strap end remains to be definitive, but the extant diagnostic features sugge…

Copper alloy head-plate and bow fragment of an early Saxon brooch probably a small long or cruciform type. Only the central part of the head-plate is extant with the periphery broken and damaged. Original edges that do survive suggest the headplate had side and top extensions forming a cross.

There is a perpendicular spring tab on the reverse of the headplate broken across the circular perforation. Circa 450-550 AD.
