Decorated pewter bead. This is one of fourty four items including disc brooches, rings and beads, many in unfinished state. This group of jewels was found near to Bow Church during the construction of a sewer along Cheapside in 1838, and at first thought to be of silver, these seem to be the stock of a local workshop.
1001 AD - 1100 AD
