Type and Period (1)
"An Anglo-Saxon 'ground [gourd] -shaped' urn, 4 1/4 inches high, found at Redgrave before 1853 was given to Norwich Museum (Acc Number 44-25) by R Taylor" (S3)(R2)(R3). In NWHCM in 1909 (R3).
"Cinerary urn with swastika ornament in Moyses Hall Bury ... From pit on E side of road. Possibly from a destroyed mound on Gallows Hill TM 0415 7832. RR Clarke has some information" (S1)(S2)(R1). Listed as in Moyses Hall in 1911.
The urn in Moyses Hall is described as a 'buckleurne' decorated with 5 large bosses, with 3 stamped swastikas in between each and small circular depressions containing a cross in relief and plain 'cup-shaped hollows' (S3) (S2)(R4)(R5).
These references relate to two separate vessels, which are the same as listed under RGV 004 - clearly some confusion exists as to the original findspot/s.
Also see RGV 004 for possible Med urn from this area.
