These new finds confirm that we have found an area where metalworking was taking place. The identification of some of the fragments found nearby as from Scandinavian-style weapons strongly suggests that this is debris from the battle.

 

 

A large selection of smaller billets came from both the context of the hearth bottom and from the site of the hoard. These smaller billets were from the context adjacent to the heavier billets identified earlier, suggesting that the lighter ones had been moved further from their original location.
