Early-medieval art styles on selected object types

Suggested period: EARLY MEDIEVAL

Some years ago it was noticed (by Karen Hoilund Nielsen) that early Anglo-Saxon art styles were rare on some objects at some times. More recently, Jane Kershaw has also pointed out that brooches and strap-ends differ a great deal in the art styles that are chosen for decoration (Winchester style, for example, is rare on brooches but very common on strap-ends). This work is still very much in its early stages, and we need to establish the broad outlines of which art style is found on what objects before going on to look at which factors might underlie the choices. This is really two pieces of work, one for the early Anglo-Saxon and one for the later Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Scandinavian material.
