Anglo-Saxon crucifix

This find came in from Ann Lunn, who asked if I could let her have a full ID. I was told that it was unearthed on 12 February and measures only 35mm tall.

The find is made of copper-alloy in the shape of a crucifix. The figure has clearly defined hands on its outstretched arms and at the top of the cross is a broken suspension loop.

From its general style I would say this find is Anglo-Saxon and most likely to be 9th century in date. It’s attractive, rare and apart from the broken loop it’s in very good condition so it counts as a really good detecting find.
