Jarrow, Anglo-Saxon architectural fragment
A decorated fragment of stone, 16.5 cm high x 15.2 cm wide x 7 cm deep, in medium to coarse-grained yellow sandstone. A corner fragment, edged by double cable divided by an incised line. The lower surface is rough, the upper smooth, and "a long projection penetrates the border". Its date is uncertain. It was found in 1971 in archaeological excavation of the robber trench of the west wall of the Norman east claustral range. Appears more like Roman than Saxon work. Perhaps the corner of a grave slab.
