A wonderful example of a Viking silver bracelet / arm-ring made from a single band of metal, with punched decoration covering the outside of the piece.
Found in Northern Norfolk, probably near Burnham Market, 9th or 10th century.
lenght width : 8 cm broad width from front to back of the bracelet : 5.5 cm
the band itself is 0.5 cm at the terminals and 2 cm at its broadest point in the middle.
the silver band itself is varying in thickness: at one terminal it is 2 mm thick, at the other terminal it is 3 mm thick. In the middle it is nearly 3 mm thick.
Its weight I cannot measure, as I have no precise enough weighing scale to do so, but I will do in future at an archeaological service I am familiar with in Holland.
The form of the band of metal of the arm-ring looks like an arm-ring wich was found in the Silverdale hoard, although the dots and triangles decoration different.
