Type and Period (1)
1897: Sax urn presented to IPSMG by H Fisk. Tall, necked vessel, with stamped ornaments, much damaged, of unusual form with chevron pattern filled with stamps. Imperfectly burned brownish grey ware, fairly smooth texture. "Found at Bramford, 4ft below the surface" (S1)(S2)S3).
NGR of (see 'Not to be published on web' tab for finder/s and/or findspot/s) cited by Meaney (S3), reason unknown. Location supported by information in Suffolk Record Office which shows G Fisk (relative of H Fisk) owned Thornbush Hall with land on N & W side of village. Stanley West suggests possibly from Boss Hall cemetery (now Ipswich Borough, formerly Bramford parish). Appears unlikely as Boss Hall was in Sproughton parish in 1897 and wasn't owned by Fisk (S5).
