Jarrow, Anglo-Saxon architectural fragment
Eight fragments of an ornamental panel, 4.6-7.3 cm high x 3.0-5.4 cm wide x 1.0-1.7 cm deep, in micaceous brown siltstone. Unworn, but damaged and encrusted with iron-pan. There are seven fragments of edge moulding, with traces of pellet/petal/leaf; the eighth is a nearly complete petal. Dated to the late 7th-early 8th century. The panel was probably part of internal decoration. Found in 1965 during the archaeological excavation of a Saxon building.
