Anglo-Saxon beads based on finds from Sarre Grave 25, Kent
Reproduction of a bead set with swag and monochrome beads, based on the Anglo-Saxon burials at Sarre - Grave 25
The Anglo-Saxon cemetery at Sarre in Kent is a wonderful resource for beads. The finds from there show a wide range of bead types and also the quantity of beads per grave varies widely.
This set is a reproduction of the beads from Grave 25, which contains some classic 'swag' beads in coral and white glass, along with some lovely beads in pale blue, yellow and an ivory glass. One of the 'swag' beads is a double, which looks like two beads stuck together.
