8.5 Personal Possessions

A small assemblage of book and casket fittings, coins and coin weight, buckles and belt fittings were found during these excavations. Personal adornments included brooches, a bracelet, a ring and wooden beads.

Many of the items were found within burial soils and would probably have adorned a burial. The only piece found in situ was the bracelet on the wrist of one of the burials.
