Saxon Pendant
For all jewellery lovers.
A Saxon grave containing human remains, a gold pendant and other ‘grave goods’ were discovered by workmen during a wedding celebration in 1901 in the garden of Wycombe Museum – known as Castle Hill House at the time.
A skeleton still wearing a necklace of glass beads with a gold pendant attached showed that an important person was buried there. It was common for Saxons to be buried with important possessions – perhaps needed for the next life.
This is a replica of the original pendant. It has a Kentish design and is dated around 600AD. The original is in the British Museum.
