Jarrow, Anglo-Saxon baluster frieze
Part of a baluster frieze, in medium to coarse-grained yellow sandstone. Very worn and broken. There is a concave moulding above the balusters which are set on a narrow plinth. Dated to the last quarter of the 7th century to the first quarter of the 8th century. Found in 1969 in the archaeological excavations between the Saxon buildings and the church. Perhaps belongs to the same feature as HER ref. 1219.
