A catalogue and discussion of the largest assemblage of hooked-tags and strap-ends recovered from Late Anglo-Saxon England comprising two chapters in an edited finds volume. Benefiting from the refined contextual, stratigraphic, and other dating evidence available for the site of Flixborough (a paradigm of high-status rural settlement), this survey provides the basis for a more nuanced understanding of chronological and regional variations embodied by two of the most ubiquitous classes of ornamental metalwork from Anglo-Saxon England. Analysis also brings to light new evidence for contemporary production methods and materials and provides key information for reconstructing networks of trade and exchange along the eastern seaboard of England during the 8th and 9th centuries A.D.
