M/1992/32. This bronze buckle is one of several Saxon objects found by workmen when they were building Edridge Road in Croydon between February 1893 and September 1894. Some of the objects were given to the old Grangewood Museum in Croydon and are now looked after by Croydon Museum Service. The rest were given to the British Museum. Between 1600 and 1300 years ago, Edridge Road was the site of a Saxon cemetery and the owner of this buckle was buried wearing it. Noticed a mistake? Have some extra information about this object?
