X-Ray Images of artefacts from the site
Preliminary post excavation work will involve the x-raying of all metal finds and soil blocks containing finds as an enormous amount of detail can be gained through a good x-ray. In particular, evidence of decorative detail and technology can be gained from the bronze brooches, wrist clasps, buckles, tweezers and other finds, while many iron objects are covered in various corrosion products which obscure virtually all detail. When the x-ray has been examined, objects can be fully identified and experts dealing with the conservation, artefact and technical sides of the large finds assemblage can begin to give us a detailed opinion of what potential the material has for Anglo-Saxon studies.
