What is it? 6 - answers







Yesterday's mystery artefact is in fact a hooked tag, used to fasten clothing. We still use similar objects today. This beautiful example was found in Trench 6 in 2008. It is in extremely good condition and still shows traces of silvering or tinning which once coated the copper-alloy. Stylistically this little hooked tag probably dates to the later Anglo-Saxon period, 9th-11th century.

How did you do?

Come back tomorrow for another challenge 😊
