2 An Anglo Saxon lead piece with the characteristic design of two chip-carved Style 1 animals back to back. It dates from the 6th century AD. It may have acted as a lead model for producing moulds. It could have been a casual loss or could have been derived from an Anglo Saxon metalworking site in the near vicinity.
