The Crundale Buckle
« Reply #1 on: June 16, 2018, 22:05:55 »
This silver buckle was found in a grave of a wealthy male, it is around 2 inches long and found on the Crundale Downs.  It dates from the 7th century, not long after St Augustine landed in Kent, sent to convert the English to Christianity.  It is now held by the British Museum.
