Early Tudor, about 1485-1540AD
Found with a metal detector at Badger Farm, Winchester, Hampshire in about 1996
This cast copper-alloy mount is in the form of a cross crosslet, that is a cross with smaller crosses on the end of each arm, and has a single integral pointed rivet or spike at the centre of the reverse, presumably for attachment. Most likely it was a decorative mount with some religious significance to the owner.
