Full Description

SK 16 72: Brushfield, Barrow (lost?): A barrow described as "at Brushfield" produced Anglian finds when disturbed by a farmer in c. 1825. There are several known possible sites (SMR 2706, 2707, 2740) and it is unknown which, if any, of these was the location for these finds. The documented finds are an iron sword, an iron shield umbo (boss), an iron knife and a buckle. (3) Nb. There are two separate SMR no.s and entries for this discovery, one (SMR 2717) was already extant when Barnatt allocated a second number to the finds following his barrow survey (3). Whether this was deliberate, or an error, is uncertain, the earlier entry has a more specific NGR, although Barnatt's survey would suggest such accuracy is unwarranted. (4)
