  • None recorded

Full Description

A silver-gilt pin was found by a metal detector user in a field near Ticknall in 1986. It was taken to Derby Museum and deposited there on loan. Although it did not come from a dateable context, parallels with pins elsewhere are sufficient to suggest a date in the later-ninth or tenth century. Scandinavian parallels suggest an Anglo-Danish origin which could be supported by this find from within the Danelaw. (1)
