Beautiful Rare Anglo Saxon Pendant Found in Norfolk England

A stunning Anglo Saxon era pendant made of gold and garnet gems is discovered on an excavation site in a field in Norfolk England.

The 7 cm pendant found is a major recent find in the UK’s rich Anglo Saxon herritage. The pendant was discovered near a badly preserved grave of a woman that dates back to the 5th-6th century.

A carved unicorn can bee seen on the upper left side.

The Anglo-Saxons were a people who inhabited Great Britain from the 5th century. They included people from Germanic tribes who migrated to the island from continental Europe, and their descendants; as well as indigenous British groups who adopted some aspects of Anglo-Saxon culture and language.

The Anglo-Saxon period denotes the period of British history between about 450 and 1066, after their initial settlement, and up until the Norman conquest.
