Ornamented golden mount discovered

A less than inch in width and length triangular mount was found near Fakenham (United Kingdom) during a charity search aimed at raising money from any finds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance. It possibly comes from a sword grip, but experts say it has differences to similar finds.

The artefact dates to the late 6th or early 7th century. It is a high-status item but remains a mystery since no evidence of prehistoric dwellings has ever been found in the village or it’s direct vicinity.
