Ahhhh but the Roman patch has been contaminated by those pesky Saxon folk. Looks familiar? From https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/ceejays_site/pa ... epage6.htm

P.S. it could be medieval too as they also liked an offset bar. Without the pin (which is an important diagnostic feature) then I think seeing and holding it will be important to confirm 100% it is Saxon.

Medieval for me, 13-14 century.
Very nice! :thumbsup:
