First ever saxon I think

Post by paint » Tue Aug 13, 2019 8:29 pm

I did slope away from my dig to day a little dejected as no one found anything good so i invited the last two standing to come to one of my other fields which they enjoyed more than the stubble few coins between us nothing of note but i did manage another one off the bucket list i think

Nice find, and if it is Saxon, and it looks like it may be, then it is no more than you deserve ::g

Question away - I get it wrong all the time :D

This one is described as a stirrup strap mount https://finds.org.uk/database/artefacts ... /id/939068

But on this one (and lots more) they are described as tongue shaped open work strap ends https://finds.org.uk/database/artefacts ... /id/943558

Either way it’s saxon and very lovely :-*
