Reference Name LCNCC : 1956.105a.1

copper alloy hanging bowl, upright sides with an inset square rim (type b), the base of the bowl has a deep flat topped cupping (late feature according to Kendrick) and the trace of an external print can be seen, though this is now missing. The internal central print is preserved and is a variation on a trumpet pattern, it differs from the external escutcheons in the degree of its elaboration. The three spirals and central void of the escutcheons are replaced by four simple circles each of which has a smaller raised ring within it. Between the inner and outer rings are circles of raised dots which also appear in the centre roundels , these would have shown against the enamel with which the cells were originally filled. The three small triangular raised cells also originally held enamel. Three points of suspension are provided equi-distant around the rim and each has an indentical escutcheon, these terminate in a swan's neck. The design of the escutcheons consists of three spiral roundels connected to to a central rondel by silvered curvilinear connecting pieces, which are split by lentoid voids into trumpet shapes. The central roundel has been replaced by a void, presumeably for the fixing of some object. The base of the bowl has been deliberately holed by a knife or spear. The bowl was found with a sword (also ritually broken), remains of ornamented bucket and bowl number 4 (LCNCC : ), all part of a rich grave deposit. The cremation inside the bowl contained bronze vandykes from the bucket, a partially fused glass palm cup, fragments of brown glass, fragment of bone comb. The creamation consists of over 2500 pieces of well fired bone
