4.4.51 Seething, Norfolk

The parish of Seething is in south Norfolk, 15km south-east of Norwich. The name Seething may derive from Old English, meaning 'Place of Sitha's people'.

A number of Anglo-Saxon artefacts have been retrieved from various locations across the parish. Metal-detecting recovered a Late Saxon convex disc brooch, with relief decoration consisting of three inward-facing cat-like animal heads, and a Late Saxon/early medieval knife handle with a dragonesque animal-head. The other Saxon finds consisted of pottery sherds, including Late Saxon Thetford Ware. The VASLE dataset is derived from the Norfolk HER, with some coin records from the EMC.
