Type 2c example

Type 2c comprises combs with connecting plates of plano-convex section, and an extended, gently coped profile (i.e. the connecting plates reach something of a central apex). They are most common in the Netherlands, but also appear in small numbers in the southern British Isles; in both contexts they can be roughly dated to the period between c. AD 700 and 900 (e.g. Riddler 1991a).
