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…

A fragment of a cast copper alloy object of 9th century date. The object measures 46mm in length and has one straight side and one side is shaped to fit the cast design. The surviving terminal is in the form of an animal head from whose mouth projects a rounded attachment loop. The head has flattened ears and small circular pits for the eyes, the latter probably intended to receive an inlay. Behind the head is a worn panel which is difficult to interpret and which has been inlaid with niello, a small patch of which survives. There are also two small patches which suggest the former pr…

An incomplete late Medieval cast copper-alloy purse pendent frame, dating to between AD 1450 and AD 1500. The frame is L shaped in cross section, and appears to be broken approximately at the mid-point. The tip of the surviving tapered end is also missing. The frame curves and broadens to a constant width of 6.3mm, with 1mm drilled sewing holes spaced at regular intervals along the inner edge. The side of one hole is partly visible at the old break, where it has created a weak point. The surface of the frame is worn, with traces of file marks and areas of light green patina. The front…

An incomplete early-medieval cast copper-alloy strap-end, classified as Thomas's (2003, 2) Class A, Type 1 (Trewhiddle style), broken across the main panel before the animal head terminal. This would date the artefact to around the 9th century AD. The strap-end is flat in profile, though bent downwards at an angle at the terminal as a result of the old damage mentioned. The plate is sub-rectangular with sides that tapered very gradually towards an animal head terminal. Both halves of the split attachment end survive, though neither rivet is in situ in the two rivet holes; one of th…

Description: A middle to late Anglo Saxon silver strap-end of Thomas's Class A1 (Trewhiddle style). The split attachment end is rectilinear, and has two rivet holes containing separate silver rivets. The left-hand rivet appears to have a silver blob extending to one side from it. The edge of the entire front is left as a plain, undecorated border, which is thicker at the attachment end where it is shaped around the base of the two rivet holes. The usual fan-shaped field is missing, so the central panel has a double incurve at the top and an incurved edge at the bottom, above the animal…
